Ecuadorian/Miami-based artist Saadin Dassum paints a poignant portrait of a love that has slipped through the fingers of time with his latest track, “Forgot My Name.” In this genre-blurring masterpiece, Dassum seamlessly weaves together elements of rock and roll, psychedelia, and gospel. The result is a multi-layered composition that delves deep into the realm of emotions.
“Forgot My Name” resonates with the bittersweet essence of a romance that didn’t stand the test of time. Rooted in the dreamy and nostalgic ambiance that Dassum has masterfully crafted as his own signature, the track unfolds as a musical tapestry.
Described as an ode to “the hangover from the drug that is love,” the song navigates the melancholy of a love that has faded away, yet it wears its heartache with a touch of grace. It carries within its notes the weight of memories that didn’t make it, while simultaneously cherishing the moments that once bloomed.
Saadin Dassum deftly balances on the precipice between innovation and familiarity in his sonic landscape. Having made his return to the music scene earlier this year, his magnetic melodies continue to gather momentum, leaving a craving for more.
