With Terrace Martin‘s Velvet Portraits rapidly approaching, the Cali saxophonist and producer lets loose yet another cut from the album, “Push” featuring Tone Trezure (a.k.a. Latoya Givens). The two previously linked on one of my favorite joints from Martin — “You’re The One” with Ty Dolla $ign — so it’s nice to see them join once again.
“Push” is far more upbeat affair than the aforementioned, taking on the style of a bombastic socially aware soul record from the 1960s where afros, passion and angst toward the Vietnam War were raging. The song seems to be recorded to make it sound a bit aged, too, with Trezure’s slightly muffled vocals are surrounded by blaring horns, humming backing vocals and the power of Aretha Franklin pushing the song forth.
