Cyril Hahn & Javeon - Breaking

Not since SOHN and Banks has a producer / singer pairing been so instantly compelling. Cyril Hahn is a Canadian producer most famous to date for his remix of Destiny's Child's classic "Say My Name." This time round he has turned out an original track, and put crooner Javeon's vocal on top of it. Call me crazy but Javeon reminds me of Lionel Ritchie. If Lionel Ritchie took ecstasy and stopped whining about his long lost lady friends. So basically this song is part eerie mid-tempo house beat, and part modern Lionel Ritchie. I think the lyrics are also cool. "Can you hear that I'm breaking?" is an interesting slice of ideasthesia (this is where I brag about my English major). Look out for releases from both artists sometime in 2014.
