“Bounce It” by “Queen Ty” is a perfect song for all audiences out there. There’s a really comforting warmth to this song, one that softens the high energy of the melody and rhythm a bit and makes for a very classic-sounding recording. The hip-hop vibe comes out in every possible way but that softness is something that is present in everything from the rhythm to the soundscape, to the melody and of course the vocal performance itself. It feels like a very natural performance that reinforces the independence of the artist and individuality of the track, which develops as part of the creative process.
Queen Ty’ track brings a dreamlike ambience and drives it with a soft but confident rap, gradually adding that hip-hop and r&b vibe. The backing track is really something. The beat is unusually light, with a synth riff playing throughout the background that sounds equal parts soothing and slightly haunting. The artist’s lead vocals on top of this one, as mentioned, have a sweet presentation to it, but with a close enough and personal recording you can pick out and appreciate the tone of his voice and the style of his flow. The whole song has a bit of a soulful vibe to it, but for the most part, it’s a low-energy piece of music, the kind of track to wind down or take a long walk into the evening.
Production-wise it’s a job well done. Not only in the creativity throughout the instruments and effects and structure, but also in the way each voice is incorporated into the mix. The focus is on the song as a whole, rather than constantly focusing your attention on the lead vocals or any particular lyrics. In many ways the backing track soaks up the vocals and everything fits perfectly.
Structurally the whole track works beautifully. The instrumental breaks are well-placed and long enough to really let you rest and relax between lyrics, and the subtle yet addictively euphoric soundscape that drives these breaks adds to the enjoyment of the track in general.
