Black Coast ~ Ride ft M. Maggie

Black Coast ft M.Maggie Ride Cover Art!

Who is BLACK COAST?  The impressive electronic pop project of Stan Rapoport, who is an emerging producer and songwriter based out of New York!

My first impression of “Ride” : A smooth and buoyant track with tantalizingly tempting yet melancholic edges!

My take : Some musicians come together and are able to create moving music that sounds natural and feels sincere.  That is exactly the case with magnetic producer BLACK COAST and  fellow New Yorker M. Maggie.  Teaming up for the third time with their new track “Ride”, the always interesting pair have created another ear-pleasing track meant to be heard by the masses.  It’s a bit darker sounding than earlier songs “Enough” and “TRNDSTTR”, but still has a way of pulling me in even though it stays rather monotone.  I can hear the struggle and the longing behind the subtly seductive vocals, pushing and pulling against one another all the way through. Without any real resolution in the end.  “Ride” ends rather abruptly but is all together irresistibly alluring and all engrossing.   And proves there is something truly magical that happens when these two promising talents collaborate together!

Born in sunny San Diego and raised in central Illinois. I graduated from the University of Illinois @Urbana-Champaign and spent the better part of 10 years in sunny Phoenix Arizona after graduation. I now reside in Savoy IL and I try to make it up to the Chicago music scene as much as I can. Music has always been a part of my life and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
