Russ Macklin did work in 2016, DJ’ing parties around town and remixing the likes of R.LUM.R and EZA. With his first release of 2017, Macklin teams up with local pop artist Kyle Reynolds to create “Natural.” The track starts with a stream of synths and keys before taking to the sky with Macklin’s adventurous production and Reynolds’ confident vocals. By the time you finish listening, you’ll feel like you’ve been on a magic carpet ride.
Macklin says the partnership with Reynolds was an organic fit. “We didn’t even know each other before this, but through some mutual people, we got together, wrote and recorded it one one day. It was one of those where we just clicked.”
Listen to the “Natural” below.
