Santi Castro – “Hope”

    Santi Castro is a hidden gem, there’s no way around it. This isn’t the typical track we cover here at Raver Mag but “Hope” is flat out good music. Hailing from Richmond, this R&B crooner’s newest single is a track that describes new beginning, residing in a gorgeous pop-soul soundscape. Speaking about the new release, Santi shares ““Hope” depicts my current real life situation in high resolution. No tricks, no flash just the fire. It is a reflection to pass on the lessons learned and to acknowledge the next chapter, which might open before the last was properly closed. The feeling is that everything will come and now it is certain, but it came from hope.”

    Adding to how the track was created, Santi explains, “I started with the keyboard parts and then built the drum groove and bass parts. Immediately after, I wrote the verses and pre chorus. I recorded what I had and listened back until I started hearing a chorus that could tie everything together. I recorded the chorus and bridge next, adding harmonies and details. It was a great session the whole song took about 3 hours.”

    Impeccable vocals, thoughtful songwriting, and simple, clean instrumentals. Who needs much else? Consider us Santi Castro fans now and in the future. Check out “Hope” below:
