Positivity is key in turning things around. That’s the core message of ‘Good’, the latest release by MistaJam on his Dance NRG label. Getting overwhelmed by negative feelings or emotions may seem like a logical reaction to challenging times or a stroke of bad luck, but one need only focus on the light in order to step away from the dark. And that’s exactly where this record from the U.K. DJ, producer and radio maker comes in: to light a fire of positivity within all listeners.
An homage to the experiences that made our lives take a turn for the better, MistaJam and Kelli-Leigh’s first-ever link-up is as radiant as they come. A positive, uplifting affirmation of the resilience of the human spirit, ‘Good’ channels the power needed to push through life’s curveballs with a head held high.
MistaJam: “I’ve known Kelli-Leigh for years, but had never worked with her in the studio. I had made a beat that I thought she’d be perfect on, so I plucked up the courage to see if I could work with her on it. We got in the studio late in November in the company of Nick Sheldon and ‘Good’ was written in about an hour. We spoke about our life experiences that had led us to that point and realized that our lives took a turn for the good when we were willing to work from that place of good. You’ll never be alone when you get rid of your doubts or that negative energy holding you back. When you open up your heart to the good that exists, you’ll find power to push through whatever life throws at you.
Kelli-Leigh: “It was such a great moment to finally get together with MistaJam in the studio to create a record. Nick Sheldon and I started vibing with some ideas and MistaJam wanted to create something to counteract all the negativity we’d been surrounded by from the news, television, Twitter etc. So our aim was to create something positive & uplifting. I loved how MistaJam wasn’t afraid to delve into the words; so many dance records can take on simplistic lyricism, but this record was really about self-healing, growth, believing in yourself and ultimately feeling ‘Good’. We could all use a bit of healing right now and I’m excited for this record to lift spirits.”
