Life can often seem like a game of poker. We have to take
chances, we don’t always know how the cards may fall, but we
have to decide what moves we are going to make and hope they
prove to be the right ones. Obstacles, dilemmas and gambles
exist in every facet of life, in business, in love and in creativity.
The playing card depicted on this record sleeve represents the
many twists and turns we encounter in life and the chances we
must sometimes take. There comes a time where we must play
the hand we have been dealt as effectively as we can. Even the
most difficult cards can bring positive results if we play them in
the right way.
Default Position’s eighth offering is ‘Take Your Turn’ by Santiago
Perez. The title track takes its roots in Santiago’s desire to
prosper in life, through making the right moves and taking
the right turns, amidst the noise and uncertainties, which are
represented by the background chatter flowing throughout. This
is a soulful array of percussions and enchanting melodies which
bring a bright and positive vibe to the party.
Second on the EP is ‘Choices’ - a tougher darker cut born
from a moment where everything came together perfectly,
whilst inspiration and ideas flowed effortlessly. After creating a
concept however, it took numerous months and what seemed to
be never ending versions to achieve the final composition.
It was worth the effort. The level of production on this EP is first
class and we’re very proud to release it.
Santiago Perez - ‘Take Your Turn’ is out on Default Position on
August 15th 2016, in all digital formats.
