Swedish producer Rasmus Faber reveals his most breathtaking body of work to date with his 3rd artist album, ‘Two Left Feet’. This album sees Rasmus going back to his house roots where hints of Afro, Folk and acoustic inspired grooves provide a backdrop to songs with real stories raw emotion and hints of melancholy. Rasmus has enlisted an array of hugely talented singer/songwriters on the project. Opening up with the heartfelt song, ‘Animal’, is Denver’s Magic Woman (aka Arielle Vakni); half Swedish-half Japanese pop artist Maia Hirasawa lends her charismatic tones to the beautiful piano led outing ’Shut Down’; musical chameleon and regular cohort Renae Rain, tells the powerful story of ‘Do My Best’ and also performs on the thought provoking ‘We Don’t Waste The Time’. Stockholm songbird Sara Steele’s sweet, comforting vocals glide over a soundtrack of emotive cinematic strings and woody afro vibes on ‘Good Morning June’; Japanese singer Marter’s breathy tones light up the acoustic stunner ‘Diary.’ German star Alexandra Prince’s candied performance simply mesmerises on the cheerful woody outing ‘Daisy’; and bringing the magic to the album’s earthy title track is Swedish indie pop and country singer Frida Öhrn (Oh Laura, Öhrn). There are also 2 wonderful instrumental pieces from Rasmus – the afrocentric currents of ‘Son Of A Marimba Maker’ and the enchanting perpetual motion of the piano and bass driven ‘On The Train For Ise’. All recorded with live instruments, the album showcases the class and talent of a true artist who really knows his craft and yet still continues to push boundaries and surprise his fans. A must have for Summner!
