OKP Premiere: Harlem's Michael Blume Shares The Whispery Debut Single "Manufactured Love"
Harlem’s Michael Blume gifts the Okay-realm with the oceanic r&b of his debut single “Manufactured Love,” featuring NYC bass sage Brady Watt on production. It’s a whispery, intimate treatment, led by layers of Blume mid-range croon and the most delicate and minimal of piano touches, underscored by Watt’s fuzz on the low-end and a very tender mid-track break that opens up with the singer’s formidable falsetto, dissipating into a cloud of oscillating synthesizers. All in all, a very enjoyable ballad crafted in the Lonny Breaux vein that’ll grab your ear and rock perfectly against those night-time-is-the-right-time moments. Though a full project has yet to be named or dated, you can peep Michael Blume’s dynamic debut “Manufactured Love” below as we keep our eyes on this powerful new presence in the r&b world to see what’s next.
