Beshken ft. Soraya – Right Time

Santa Monica-based producer Ben Shirken AKA Beshken, partnered up with Soraya for this simply enjoyable song, “Right Time”. It starts off slowly, with only Soraya’s voice softly caressing our ear drums alongside a keyboard, after which melds with an uptempo medley of drums and organ sounds. Occasional manipulation of vocals, and breaks in tempo add character to the song. The R&B mixed with electronic elements has me keen. I often have ADD with music, so to find a concoction like this is refreshing and intriguing. It helps that I’m a huge fan of female vocalists with the smooth characteristics that Soraya’s voice holds.

The layers that make up this song are organic and complementary; no-one is overbearing over the others. Because of this, the listener is invited to envelop himself, yet the song won’t consume him wholly. It can easily be the smooth background music in a social setting. Right now I’m picturing a couple, sitting in a dimly-lit room, getting to know each other. Is this the right time for [……….]? I can’t quite figure out what the song is alluding to, but I can infer it’s a significant moment for something to happen. What do you think?
