Bermuda-born DJ and producer Korie Minors blesses our speakers with a bittersweet (emphasis on the sweet) radio-ready Afro-house single entitled "The Way We Used To Be" featuring JaySoulO's silky-smooth vocals.
Korie Minors' passion for production began at age 12, listening to records and DJing on vinyl. After his architectural academia landed him in Istanbul and Hong Kong, spinning there became a no-brainer. It wasn't long before Minors' career took off in his native Bermuda, with charting records on Traxsource Top 100 and Top 100 Afro-House.
Now, he's continuing that momentum with his latest hit, "The Way We Used To Be" ft. JaySoulO. This single feels like a sonic vacation. That said, JaySoulO's tender vocals emphasize a deeper message: the post-breakup pain and memories that linger for days, months, and even years. Minors explains, "The single communicates that sometimes you have to let relationships go for you to grow, regardless of how much it may hurt."
Jumping into "The Way We Used To Be," JaySoulO's vibrant vocals captivate our attention from the get-go, with stunning harmonies that blend seamlessly into the subtle, uplifting guitar melodies. As Korie Minors' production expands, he flawlessly incorporates his staple Afro percussion alongside majestic house influences. It truly is a bittersweet single, heavy with ethereal production and lyrics of past lovers.
The song gradually crescendos into this tropical, emotional getaway that feels like food for the soul. It's nourishing, soothing, danceable, and chilling all in one. While Korie Minors lays the foundation, JaySoulO's breathy vocals flutter in the foreground with ample emotion to keep listeners locked in from top to bottom.
If you're in search of a modern musical masterpiece loaded with soul and emotion, look no further than Korie Minors' latest single, "The Way We Used To Be," featuring JaySoulO, now available on all digital streaming platforms.
