Teamworx and Yam Refaeli Join Forces on Heartfelt Single ‘Until We’re Falling Down’

Teamworx Yam Refaeli 1024x576 1

In a remarkable fusion of creativity and technology, a collaborative initiative has emerged, bringing together five individuals from diverse artistic backgrounds to create a poignant musical experience. The team includes the dynamic DJ duo and producers, Teamworx (Ben Azoulay and Saar Lagziel), the renowned singer/songwriter Yam Rafaeli (X-Factor Israel finalist), and the visionary project leaders, Tamir Yeshayahu and Idan Shakorka.

Their journey took a unique and exciting turn as they delved into the creation of a song that transcends conventional boundaries. Leveraging the power of AI video technology, they artfully reconstructed the events of a tragic massacre, weaving together a narrative that seeks to leave a lasting impact.

The accompanying video is not for the faint-hearted, as the combination of evocative visuals and a compelling storyline ensures that no eye remains dry. The creators acknowledge that not everyone may be able to watch the entire clip due to its emotional intensity.

The genesis of the song lies in heartfelt conversations with survivors and extensive research across various networks. The lyrics encapsulate a range of emotions, from profound sadness and anger to a resilient hope that authentically reflects the human experience in the face of tragedy.

Beyond being a mere composition, the song holds a profound purpose—to inspire people to sing, dance, and engage with the accompanying video. The vision is to spread this musical tribute to dance floors across the globe, fostering awareness and creating a lasting memorial for friends lost on that fateful day.

At the heart of the song’s narrative are the stark events of October 7 at the Nova Festival. The lyrics vividly address a horrific massacre where over 300 attendees, seeking nothing but the joy of dancing peacefully, lost their lives at the hands of Hamas, a designated terrorist organization.

Yam Rafaeli’s impactful vocal delivery, combined with Teamworx’s masterful production, creates a connection that transcends the auditory experience. For those seeking a deeper connection, a compelling 3-minute video clip accompanies the audio, providing a visceral and emotional visual experience.

As the creators aim for the song to find its place in the playlists of renowned DJs and resonate across global dance floors, “Dance until we fall” stands as a powerful artistic endeavor—a tribute, a call to action, and a poignant reminder of the resilience of the human spirit in the face of adversity.

Fred again.. Samples Baby Keem in Stellar ‘leavemealone’

IMG 0439 819x1024 1 jpeg

I can’t really begin this article without commending Fred again.. for his insane production and mixing skills. Ok that feels better… Fred Again.. brings out an unique blend of Baby Keem’s ‘South Africa’ and ‘Bullies’ to craft ‘leavemealone’. The Atlantic Records track is a nasty electro journey with Jungle influences and incredible melodies. The result is 3:43 minutes of pure goosebumps.

The song introduces a blend of Baby Keem’s original tracks in a masterful positioning, adding reverbs and stuttering that makes transitions seamless. The build up is as emotional as it is sick in the best way possible. It’s so good you just want to cry on the dancefloor as you keep dancing and your tears turn into joy. The hip hop elements fuse with the Electro and UK style in a very dynamic composition. Fred again.. really outdid himself with this one. The repitches and stutters are so well presented it is truly a Grammy-worthy situation.

The American Rapper is known for his role on the Black Panther soundtracks, as well as credit contributions for Beyoncé and Kendrick Lamar. His free flowing style with heavy trap and bass influences made him the right candidate for the UK producer Fred again.. to ascertain his prowess and construct this masterpiece of a track.

Fred again.. and again?

The UK producer and DJ just gets better and better. He worked with Skrillex and Four Tet for ‘Rumble’. Besides, he produced happiness anthems like ‘Delilah (pull me out of this)’ Fred again.. is a force in this era. Alone this year, He managed to book an eight-night residency at the Shrine in LA. And, gave us three nights at Forrest Hills Stadium. Moreover, he is now a nominatee for Best Dance/Electronic Album at this year’s Grammy Awards for Actual Life 3 (January 1- September 9 2022). His ability to develop story like songs and albums that feel like intimate journal entries is such a beautiful ability.

Nevertheless, we present you ‘leavemealone’:
