Paul O'Brien - I'm the Radio



In what could be an immense radio track, Pob has moved a bit away from the drum and bass and more toward mainstream radio play. This is probably one of the more commercial tracks I have listened to by him. I'm not saying commercial in a bad way. All artists have to be able to create music for the masses otherwise they won't be able to reach new fans. With each track he releases, the more I become a member of his every growing legion of fans. This hook is catchy and the chorus is big. It has a very easy beat that makes it easily accessible to anyone that hears it. When the track starts out, I kind of expect to hear a hip hop artist to give a shout out to Red One or Jason Derulo and it doesn't sound like it would be out of place. With a very strong foundation, remixes of this song could just tear the roof off any club this is played at. I would like to see a remix with a hip hop breakdown in the middle eight by someone like Far East Movement or Tinie Tempah or Labrinth.

I promise, Pob is going to be huge and you'll be kicking yourself if you don't get in on the ground floor with him.
