A Playlist Celebrating Women Who Took Home A Grammyby Richard Little | |
In honor of Women's History Month, we want to celebrate the fierce women who have taken Grammy Awards home. We hope you enjoy this playlist as much as our team enjoyed curating it. Give us a shout on our socials for any playlist ideas you would like to see in the future that pair well with the DropLabs sneakers.
Richard Little is VP of Audio Platform here at DropLabs, joining us from Sonos, so he knows a thing or two about great audio. As a guest curator, he put together some of the best Grammy-winning bops created by female artists in honor of Women's History Month.
A note from the curator, Richard:
I picked all of these tracks to perform well using our Dramatic EQ. Dramatic passes through a good combination of deep bass and mids…it’s an “Experience” EQ, giving anyone the opportunity to have an enjoyable experience with a wide range of music.
This month I wanted to focus on female Grammy Award winners, from all genres of music. There’s some really enjoyable stuff in here; I discovered some new music myself, while making the playlist. March is Women’s History Month, and celebrating musical artists, in their full strength, seemed like the right thing to do. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do!
Lie Awake, by Allison Krause and Union Station –Tight, defined bass notes (both drums and guitar), in a fantastic quiet song.
Putting on the Ritz, by Ella Fitzgerald –
With my in-ear headphones, I can’t tell that the deep bass is concentrated in the left channel. You can through our shoes. It’s not a malfunction – the bass really is just in the left channel.
Dangerous Woman, by Ariana Grande –
The bass really makes this song flower. Again, with my in-ears, I can’t tell the bass is there at all. Use the app to mute and un-mute the shoes, and you can tell the difference.
Building a Mystery, by Sarah McLachlan –
This is a personal fave of mine, with its bass beat and low “hum” sensation.
New Rules, by Dua Lipa –
You can feel the bass resonating in the DropLabs EP 01 sneakers….it’s like your shoes are coming alive.
