Alto – All Over You

Published

on

Powerful performer captures energy from stage, 
infuses it into House Pop track ‘All Over You’ 

LONDON, ENGLAND – One of the most exciting things about the music landscape today is the number of new artists who are fusing together multiple genres to create original new sounds. Chris “Alto” Daniels is one such artist whose Jazz training as an alto sax player pairs in unexpectedly amazing ways with his journey as a House musician over the past few years. The result is three new singles that are guaranteed to be immediate staples in clubs and parties all over the world. 

Alto’s sound is like none other. At once familiar with its energetic rhythms and upbeat vibes that demand listeners to dance, it’s also nuanced with its catchy saxophone hooks and soaring tenor vocals. With silky smooth vocals soaring over those dance-heavy tracks in ways that pair perfectly with his mastery of the saxophone. It’s a sound he described as House Pop, with the hook of the sax making it truly standout from anything else out there today. 

“It’s directed more to the party side of things,” he said. “I’ve been playing sax over every type of music for a while now. I do about 200 gigs a year. I also studied Jazz in college and I love all sorts of genres. One of my greatest loves is being on a stage and hitting those high notes on a sax. It gives me goosebumps, and everybody else, too. I love that feeling when you’re elevating an audience. That’s what these songs will be – songs for parties and making everyone happy.” 

The first of the three singles to be released over the next few months is a song called “All Over You.” It’s the first tune Alto ever wrote, and in the months since the pandemic hit, he said he’s found it a blessing to be able to be home and pour his attention into perfecting this single before distributing it to the world. It’s a song about a boy meeting a girl and getting attached to that person.  

“Once you meet that person, you can’t live without them,” he said. “I’m in night clubs all the time and I have seen that scenario time after time when someone meets someone else and they connect immediately. But it’s an idea that can fit into all kinds of other situations. It’s one of those summer tracks – just happy, upbeat stuff. I want to eventually be able to play it in summer venues and daytime events like festivals and parties. I’ve done some festivals in Brazil and the Dominican Republic, and I love the energy and the stuff that happens at those kinds of events. I try to recreate in my music what happens on the stage, and I think people will see with each new song I release that I bring more and more energy and it just builds.” 

Ultimately, Alto said he hopes to become an artist who is known for bringing attention back to the music. Some of his favorite artists are legends like Pink Floyd and Queen who could make people pay attention to a single song for 10-to-12 minutes, or longer. So much of today’s music is less than three minutes long, and he said his goal is to build an audience that will follow him on a journey that integrates longer “epic sax solos” across Pop House songs that could keep them dancing for hours on end.

DMV-based rapper/producer Santa Sallet and France-based producer Nemizzo are MSP, presenting their new single “Big Hands”. Sallet has been busy showcasing his brand of East Coast braggadocious rap across a slew of recent singles like “Camouflage” (watch on Youtube), “I Get Money” (watch on Youtube), “Championship Ring” (watch on Youtube) and “Chinese Funk” (watch on Youtube) in preparation for the release of Plutography, Sallet’s forthcoming album which blends salsa beats, southern trap, and eastern jazz with classic and conventional rap samples, reflecting Sallet’s international upbringing across South Africa, Dominica and the US. Sallet is planning a series of full-length releases, among them C.R.E.A.M. which recounts his journey from broke to financially free, and Women and R.A.P. which describe his pursuit of success in relationships and the music industry respectively. “This is the song that really started MSP Tunes,” Santa says. “Nemizzo had laid down his verse and I was like, let me try something on this and I just talked about what I knew. What I think is funny, the outro is actually me recording a bunch of potential beat tags. There was a miscommunication and Nemizzo extended the beat and made it the outro. I like it though lol.” Check out Santa Sallet merch here.
