EP Review: "Love & Other Things" by Alan Tukmatsev ft. John Thacker

Hey guys!

I remember when I first started out pursueing a job that mainly revolves around creativity,
I did a lot of research.
When you are meant to be creative every single day of the week, there come times when it gets harder.

To prevent those dry spells, a lot of internet gurus tell you to collaborate.

And it works, it really does.
Working together with people helps you expand your knowledge, skill set and creativity.

And in the best case, those collaborations have an end result which not only you get to call a success, but also the people you share it with will enjoy it.

Alan Tukmatsev and John Thacker teamed up and created a new EP, which we think is a total success.

Let's check it out!

Acts: Alan Tukmatsev ft. John Thacker
Title: Love & Other Things
Genre: Dance, Pop
Label: Independent
Release Date: 29th December 2017

1) Don't Need You
2) Boys Don't Cry
3) Throwback

Opener "Don't Need You" greets you with an ambient and slightly mysterious feeling.
The song quickly evolves into a danceable track, asking for your attention.
With a subtle but steady beat, the instrumentation can be described as simple but every elements has an effect.
John's vocals complete the song, guide you through the emotions and project them onto the track by varying between soft and raspy highlights.

"Throwback" gets a bit more experimental and gives us more to digest.
The melody is colourful, the beat is vibrant and active, the vocals mix in perfectly and create the addictive vibe the song has to offer.
It's the kind of song that will remind you of Summer, of carefree times and it most definitely is going to make you dance. Whether you're up for it or not.

To sum it up: This collaboration was much needed and we're glad we got to share it with you.
Alan's instrumentals already speak for themselves but they feel a lot more vibrant thanks to John's vocals. The storytelling on the EP is vivid and relatable, it hits you right in the gut.
Play this when you need motivation and you should be fine.

You should listen to these tracks: Don't Need You, Throwback
