Natty Rico stands as one of the most unique and exciting live performers in the electronic music space, blending his unparalleled saxophone mastery with groove-inducing productions that prove as worthy for at-home and radio listening as they do for major festival stages. Having built an arsenal of globally-adored originals and remixes that put his saxophone talents front and centre, Natty now unveils the latest addition to his flourishing back-catalogue. “If You Were Gone” is available now across all streaming platforms via Natty Rico’s own label, RED EMPTION.
In true Natty fashion, this breezy, disco-inspired track is a breath of fresh air for the dance music community. A groovy bassline is at the heart of the single, alongside soft percussive elements which build with a transmissible fire throughout its almost 3-and-a-half-minute run-time. Chaz Mason’s enticing vocal piece serves as a catchy top line, with vocal chops at the drop giving the cut a real Daft Punk vibe. A flurry of intricate sound design elements and synths further serve the groove-inducing drop, before making way for Natty’s iconic sax solo, and later, a keyboard solo. Championing a variety of soulful instrumentation, Natty has created a funk-fuelled anthem; the perfect addition to any feel-good playlist, which will no doubt serve the dance community well through the winter months as we long for summer again.
