Last year, Taha Asadi aka Tasadi signalled an end to his seven-year studio hiatus, using the last of his months to prepare the groundwork for his return. Subsequently, over 2020’s duration, he directed a 12-strong, Jan-to-Dec new release hail at DJs, clubs and airplay lists.
Those included outings for Orjan Nilsen’s In My Opinion, Andy Moor’s AVA Recordings and Alexander Popov’s Interplay, as well as much through the emerging Starsphere label. Now Tasadi addresses the New Year with another label debut, bringing us his first release for Black Hole Recordings’ imprint, Magik Muzik.
‘I Would Do Anything’ pairs Taha with the singing/songwriting talents of Sarah de Warren, and for her part the English vocalist brings the track all its heart. The cut-glass resolve of her delivery belies its laid-bare lyrics, the nature of which is hard to ignore.
With Sarah delivering it its emotional charge, Tasadi’s left free to bring the floor power, which he does through studio workouts. Replete with drum march, high-altitude synths and bags of bottom end, he drives the track’s point home.
