Exclusive Review: Maria Jacinta – “Human” Single

Review by: Justyn W. Brodsky

Hailing from the landscapes of the Netherlands, Techno/Dance recording artist Maria Jacinta began hitting the ground running in the early 2000s with her electronically-infused, distinctive sound. Since then, she has garnered an insatiable buzz throughout the music world with many solid releases, industry exposure and word of mouth. And she continues her winning streak with her latest single “Human”.

This song’s Techno and Dance combination is very atmospheric and upbeat, mixing in textures of Pop elements as well which gives her the outlet to really shine in the infectiously catchy chorus. Her exotic mid-to-high range vocals are encompassed perfectly in this song and feels like she was meant to be a vocalist for this specific genre; her lyricism is projected smoothly, her vocal melody choices are wholesome and on point, and the overall production value makes “Human” a completely visceral listening experience from beginning to end.

Maria‘s vocals really carry the torch on this track, but there’s also brilliant key progressions and structure as well, and even includes an incredible EDM-oriented synth solo towards the end of the song. But overall, one of the biggest things this track has going for it is its ability to have staying power – where the song stays with you even long after it’s over, and can still be appreciated wholesomely even years later where you find yourself coming back to this track time and time again. “Human” is currently available online and several digital music streaming platforms. You’ll thank us later for recommending it.
