Real Magic’s ‘Hard 2 Keep’ has been getting loads of love from music fans since it hit the web last week. So if you’re a regular blog troller you may’ve already sucked this one up! I hadn’t heard Real Magic before this but it’s clear that the 26-year-old Colorado producer deserves the attention. ‘Hard 2 Keep’ kicks off with bold wonky synths before busting into Drew Englander’s deep vocals, he nails the harmonies too.

Normally this brand of mid-tempo electro pop bores me to tears because there’s a lot of people doing it, Real Magic is an exception. The one man production path is so common these days with the technology available to us, its only natural that some people will be stronger at composing than producing, playing the guitar than singing etc. ‘Hard 2 Keep’ will be a tough tune for Real Magic to follow up because it doesn’t show any of these cracks.
