HAP.e - "Come on over"

MUSIC FARMER 5 - Review by Adam Jones

Retro-Futurism at Its Finest

In the ever-evolving landscape of electro-pop, where echoes of the past blend seamlessly with the pulse of the present, HAP.e's latest offering, "Come on over," featuring the illustrious vocals of NAOMI, emerges as a shining example of musical alchemy done right. This track isn’t merely a piece of music; it’s an odyssey, a vessel that transcends time, marrying the unabashed joy of '80s dance floors with the crisp, dynamic production values of today. HAP.e, a visionary producer from the serene vistas of Norway, embarks on an ambitious journey to meld synthpop's nostalgic charm with a sound that’s undeniably fresh and forward-thinking.


From the first notes of "Come on over," a captivating upbeat retro synth arpeggio sets the tone, inviting listeners into a realm where every beat and melody is infused with the spirit of an era gone by, yet feels as current as a heartbeat. The rhythm, carried by compelling e-drums, channels the quintessential vibe of an '80s dance track, yet there’s a distinct clarity and vigor that signals we are firmly in the now, making for an exhilarating start that promises a musical feast.


As NAOMI’s voice weaves into the fabric of the song, it takes on a vibrant life. Her lyrics—filled with anticipation and the thrill of love—don’t just speak; they soar, lifting the spirit and beckoning listeners to give in to the dance of romance. This collaboration between HAP.e’s instrumental genius and NAOMI’s vocal artistry ignites the air, a vivid illustration of the producer’s goal to create a unique synthesis of sound and soul from across the globe.


Musically, "Come on over" is a nod to legendary influences, with a bass line that grooves with the infectious funk of Michael Jackson's hits and a structure that could easily share a stage with titans like Daft Punk and the Chemical Brothers. And yet, within these echoes of greatness, "Come on over" stands as its own entity, a clear reflection of HAP.e's ability to honor musical giants while charting new territories.


The song's bridge, with its intense drive and NAOMI’s empowering declarations, marks a high point in this auditory journey, a moment of exhilarating release that elevates the entire track. It’s a shift that not only showcases the song's dynamic range but also makes it utterly impossible not to move along.

 

This collaboration between HAP.e’s instrumental genius and NAOMI’s vocal artistry ignites the air, a vivid illustration of the producer’s goal to create a unique synthesis of sound and soul from across the globe.

 

As the track closes with NAOMI's voice gliding over a sleek, sustained note, the message crystallizes: this song transcends the simple narrative of yearning love; it's an anthem of connection, a vibrant celebration of the magnetic pull we feel towards the ones who light up our world.


HAP.e's "Come on over" is, in essence, an exuberant and heartfelt pop song, but to categorize it merely as such would not do it justice. Through HAP.e's inspired production and NAOMI's compelling vocal delivery, the track becomes a journey of joy and connection, bridging time and space. It's a piece that doesn’t just aim to be heard but to be felt, a luminous reminder of music’s enduring power to move us, to bring us closer, and to fill our lives with the light of shared moments and cherished memories.
