Welsh electronic artist and producer Rachel K Collier kicks off 2019 with attitude-infused epic Electro Pop jam Dinosaur.
This fun and creative song utilizes the use of unique synths and fun vocals to create a catchy and completely out of the box track. Dinosaur is a hook focus song that tries to get you up and dancing. Very much a small club feel to the song with some bass heavy ambiance. The vocals are super fresh and have a super interesting edge which is very much on brand for Collier. Inspired by an experience at a music conference in 2018, Dinosaur highlights a female producers frustration with the attitudes of a few soon-to-be-extinct old-school music producers.
"‘It was the first time in my career that I really felt these so-called misogynistic vibes- each time I spoke at this event the Old School Producer dudes would roll their eyes or stare at the floor, they were completely disinterested in anything I had to say- It didn’t hit me til much later but then I felt so angry I had to put it into words’ A collaboration with Swansea Video Producer Jamie Panton really brings the lyrics and narrative of the song to life." - Collier
