Possessing a combination of technical proficiency, musicality, expressiveness, and artistry, Asher Laub, a talented electric violinist, has made a global name for himself for his innovative and energetic performances. He incorporates elements of various genres, including pop, hip-hop, and electronic music, into his violin playing, and the end result is something that not enough words can quantify. This experience is a feast for the ears.
Asher returns with an epic, enthralling, and soul-stirring performance with his latest single, “Redemption.” It’s incredible how he captures the audience’s attention with his performance, getting you heavily invested and keeping you on the edge of your seat from the opening notes all the way to the closing notes!
The story follows a couple enjoying a serene moonlight setting as they sail on a river, but things quickly take a terrible turn when a raging storm comes, sweeping them into a perilous and unfamiliar landscape. This is well captured by the increased velocity of the violin intonation over an equally flaming hip-hop and percussive beat with electronic cadences!
This seamless fusion of the feisty violin and the blazing pop and hip-hop instrumentation creates a cinematic tone that echoes the couple’s struggle to navigate through this dark new world they now find themselves in, full of terror.
And to capture their never-say-die and relentless attitude, the instrumentation does not relent on its pace and rhythm; rather than eschewing it, Asher ups the tone, conveying the fight for survival; the working together and interplay between the violin and dazzling instrumentation signifying the clinging together of the couple and how the trust and faith they have in each other to make it to the other side safely…and finally, they reach the shore of the river, the track transitions to a mellow, gentle, and reserved tone!
It’s Asher’s innovative spirit that sets him apart, and this is adequately showcased here. “Redemption” feels like watching a movie unfold; just the way he manages to convey a wide range of emotions and nuances through his playing speaks highly of his technical brilliance!
This is it, guys! “Redemption” is an instant classic that boosts any playlist it is added to!
