Pinky Perzelle has just premiered his new single titled ‘No Games’. Electro-soul-cosmo-funk is the term that first hit my mind when I got that first listen. I have no idea if I made that up, but it fits like a glove. If this is Pinky’s first single, I can’t wait to hear what’s next.
Singer Eda Eren lingers over the song like a modern day Édith Piaf. Gliding along into your ears with reminiscence of the slow burn track from a Quentin Tarantino film, ‘No Games’ gives off an original personality that doesn’t have to ask you to lend it your ear, it just takes it. But it takes it like someone with suave and swagger that you just submit to. This is what music is supposed to be. Non-demanding yet all encompassing.
About Pinky Perzelle
Created and refined over a four year period, Pinky Perzelle – aka Sonny Rooney’s debut ‘No Games’ featuring Eda Eren, is a true labor of love and an ode to his total passion and dedication to multi instrumental record creation without compromise, honoring the thread of inspiration which runs throughout the West London native’s sonic palette.
He says: “This debut truly is a labour of love, but also a journey of personal growth and acceptance in many ways. I’m so excited to finally get this release out into the world and hope it resonates with people.”
Almost every instrument was recorded and played by Perzelle at his home studio. The release, features the utterly unique, impassioned and reassuring vocals of British-Turkish artist, Eda Eren, and additional drums by a happy accident, from world renowned Malcolm Catto (The Heliocentrics). The lead track is a timeless, heartfelt, funk-ladened portal into a world reminiscent of a cinematic movie scene or an undiscovered gem from another era all-together.
Consisting of 4 versions of ‘No Games’, this release includes the leading bilingual Turkish and English ‘Original Mix’ and a shortened ‘Radio Edit’ which is entirely in English. Next on the record is a hypnotic ‘Remix’ from Velvet Season & The Hearts of Gold – aka Gerry Rooney & Joel Martin. Deconstructing and extending elements of the original, introducing subtle electronica and dubbed out instrumentation. A true lesson in after hours, left-field Balearica. To close the record is Pinky’s own ‘Electronic Mix’. Slightly more uptempo with references to early house music and broken-beat electronic drums which have often influenced his DJ selections. Showing yet another side of Perzelle’s approach to music making.
Pinky Perzelle is here, and the afore-gained nods of approval from cult figureheads is only a sign of the very beginning of this all-rounder’s walk into the hearts and dance floors of like-minded music lovers.
