Track Review

MP Grey – Highway (feat. Rudiger)

This is probably the best road movie life theme I heard in a long time.

Backed by a slow defensive yet distinct ryhtm and a laid back guitar, the newest release of german producer MP Grey knows how to build an atmospheric scenery in the head of the listener. For me, this track mostly feels like late night driving home. Or the perfect theme for walking out on a shattered relationship. There’s something special in this track that I can only describe as ’emotional vulnerability’. The song creates a certain ‘last man on earth’ feel for me due to these slow warm guitar and synth tracks merging with the soulful and passionate vocals of Rudiger.

The track both transmits a ‘well, guess its all over now’ feel for me, as well as an ‘well, it’s okay anyway’ feel. This balance keeps an unbelieveable amount of groovy human touch in the song for me. That’s why ‘Highway’ is such a perfect fit for the soundtrack of life. You cannot fake this kind of honesty in music.
