Andrew Rayel – Tacadum

For all that like their music fast-paced and absurdly powerful, ‘Tacadum’ is the uncontested tune of the century. From starting off with its gated synths and old-school arpeggios to unfolding as an earthquake-inducing beast, this brand-new offering not only wrecks clubs for breakfast, but also serves as one of the most gargantuan cuts on his ‘Moments’ album.

Once again going where few dare to venture, Armin van Buuren explores his musicality even further. Teaming up with super producer Fernando Garibay and featured singer Olaf Blackwood, he gives rise to this monumental out-of-the-box offering and shows that his production prowess knows no boundaries. A particularly infectious record that’s sure to turn heads, “I Need You”’ is creativity in its purest form.

Lyrics:

[Verse 1: Olaf Blackwood]
She walks all late at night
As she says her goodbyes
She’s close to sacrifice
She knows how thin it were

[Pre-Hook: Olaf Blackwood]
It ain’t easy
And it ain’t pleasing
She’s just tryna find a way out there
She put our faith in
You know they chasing
She just tryna find her love out there
And she cries

[Hook 1]
I need you, hm
Like the wave needs the motion
Like the love needs devotion
I need you
Like the desert pleads the water
Like a mission needs a mother
I need you
Every minute, every hour
I [?] broken like a flower
‘Cause I need you, I need you

[Musical Breakdown]

[Verse 2: Olaf Blackwood]
She’s lost her way of life
Feels like a hole inside
Hmm, she wants to feel alive
And nothing satisfies

[Pre-Hook: Olaf Blackwood]
It ain’t easy
And it ain’t pleasing
She’s just tryna find a way out there
She put our faith in
You know they chasing
She just tryna find her love out there
And she cries

[Hook 2]
I need you, hmm
Like the wave needs the motion
Like the love needs devotion
I need you
Every minute, every hour
I [?] broken like a flower
‘Cause I need you
Like the wave needs the motion
Like the love needs devotion
I need you
Like the desert pleads the water
Like a mission needs a mother
Every minute, every hour
I [?] broken like a flower
‘Cause I need you
(‘Cause I need you)
