SoDown gifted fans with his eclectic full-length album Alive on October 5th, 2021. The Denver bass producer and saxophonist dropped 10 tracks that encapsulate his signature bass-flair with a taste of live instrumentation. The album features fan favorites such as “Pull The Trigger,” alongside Bass Physics, and “Right On Time,” featuring Megan Hamilton, as well as other collaborations with SOUNDR, Manic Focus, Bailey Flores, and Will Robinson.
Leading up to the release of Alive, SoDown released several singles to build the hype for this immense project, however, he saved one of the best reveals for last. The opening track “Our Time” introduces the sonic world of SoDown with multi-instrumentalist and producer Kill Paris. This high energy, funk-inspired, bass bumpin’, and musically intricate track is the pinnacle of the album. The soulful chorus envelopes the opening of the track, but, SoDown and Kill Paris seamlessly change gears with a dominant, plucked synth groove that ushers in the awe-inducing bass.
SoDown dictated that this project saw much of its progress throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and the turmoil in the world. With that mindset, SoDown delivered an album centered around bringing joy and inspiring music to lift the hearts of his fans. So Down said, “Alive is a reflection of the need for gratitude of the current moment, enjoyment of what is, and the realization of the actions and steps needed to move through troubling times.” Fans can’t wait to see what’s next for the vibrant and versatile sounds of SoDown.
