More and more I’m noticing, Australian independent music company Future Classic has taken on some very good new signees on their roster. You may have already seen me wax lyrical about SOPHIE who is regarded by many as one of the most forward-thinking producers in electronic music right now. And also noticed that I’ve been equally glowing and in awe of the lovely G Flip. Today I’m all about Wafia another artist housed under the Future Classic umbrella, and her new track “I’m Good.”
When I think about music and music artists hailing from Holland, I’ve got to be honest, in a pop sense, I don’t see the Dutch being as noticeable for it, in the same way as they are renowned for producing, a glittering array of globally acclaimed producers of stature like Tiesto. To tell the truth, this makes me interested in Wafia all the more. The Dutch raised singer-songwriter of Iraqi-Syrian descent works in a soulfully, dreamy style but lately, has introduced streaks of classic renaissance disco into her sound as well as partnering up with features on tracks for Thomston, Japanese Wallpaper, and Louis The Child.
Pharrell is already a fan. Progressively, in a measured fashion, Wafia’s beautifully elegant voiced tracks are attracting people from all areas of the music business with an interest to work with her. “I’m Good” is a co-write with veteran songwriter and singer Wrabel who also has songwriting credits on the track “Better Not,” Wafia’s recent collaboration with DJ and production duo Louis The Child. In both instances, the songstress serves confidence with a punch of smouldering plucky attitude and verve Her lyrics are unapologetic brutally honest and empowering. On this song, not only are they about showing no regrets at leaving someone in the past but it is also about, making sure you allow your voice to be heard. “I’m Good” shows exactly why people are so excited about Wafia, and I can now be counted among them, as a new fan.
