Last Friday, Denver-based artist, Adiel Mitchell, released his latest hit, “All The Way (Lounge Mix)”. David “Davey Remix” Reed, who worked with TLC on their self-titled album, produced the original song, “(R.W.M.) All The Way)” on Adiel’s debut EP, About Last Night.
As a singer/songwriter, dancer, and producer, Adiel’s raw talent sustains a healthy audience and keeps them hungry for whatever he chooses to do next. His musical journey began as one half of the YouTube-famed acoustic ukulele-pop duo, Two Worlds. In 2014, the band appeared on VH1’s 24 hour livestream event, Make A Band Famous as one of 24 hand-chosen acts. They reached the Top six rounds but were voted out before they could reach the Top 5. Meanwhile, Two Worlds’ debut project, Playtime (EP), peaked at number 11 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart.
After he parted ways with his bandmate in 2017, Adiel began to evolve as a musician. His style and sound matured with each new release. “About Last Night is the first body of work that I’ve put out that truly made me feel alive,” he said. The song “2nd Chances”, from the debut EP was also included on the Grammy-considered compilation, Already On II: The Return of R&B. The compilation also featured singles from R&B greats like Men at Large, Public Announcement, and Full Force.
In January, Adiel released his Jungle (EP), featuring the hit single “Ugh (There She Go),” which exposed both sides of his musical wit. In March, he dropped the “Stuck On You (Levi Double U Remix),” right before the Denver Westword newspaper announced that they nominated him as Best R&B Artist for their 2019 Westword Music Showcase Awards. Levi Double U was also nominated as Best House Artist. Last Saturday, the two performed together as one of the few R&B acts at the 25th Anniversary Westword Music Showcase Festival.
“The craziest thing about this remix is that Davey randomly sent it to me one day while we were working on the original version of the track,” Adiel said about the new Lounge Mix. “I just got an email one late night and he was pretty much like ‘Hey bro, so I was just messing around with some other ideas and wanted to show you what I thought.’ … The second I heard it, I instantly fell in love. I love hearing something, falling in love, and then seeing that same thing flipped upside down and remixed. It allows the song to breathe in a different light and that is so dope to me. Art is never truly finished and being able to vibe with multiple different versions of something is cool.”
