Turn It Up (slow remix)

My single Turn It Up is described, by blogger Chioma Obii-Obioha of Love.'n Words, as a song that makes you want to dance, but also leaves you with a substantial message and feeds your soul

Aptly titled, “Turn It Up”, it combines disco beats with modern dance pop, creating a staccato of sounds that really does make you want to “turn it up.” Hot beat aside, this song reminds us all to embrace ourselves fully & reject the idea that we’re too much. April encourages us, in her amazing voice, to reject the natural inclination to shrink in fear around people who misunderstand us – asking us to go big, refusing to shrink & withdraw; being no one but our fabulous selves. How cool is THAT?!

Usually when I write songs, I write with the intention for my songs to be stripped down to simple instruments, to translate no matter what--whether full production or acoustic. But when I co-wrote "Turn It Up", I was given an already fully produced track. So my guitarist friend, Seth, and I were intrigued to rearrange this song, formerly upbeat and dance-tastic, into a more "turned down" mix. Creating this slowed down version of "Turn It Up" allows me to sit in the pocket and ruminate in the dark, smoky corners of the lyrics. That's what reinvention is all about.

Watch, listen and comment below.
