Mr. Reed – “We’ve Got Power (The Side Project Remix)” single
“I wrote this song to commemorate the lives of those killed by racism and police brutality. I hope it serves to express the frustration of an issue that needs to end the world over. All Zaddy vibes are unintentional.” – Mr. Reed
‘We’ve Got Power (The Side Project Remix)’ contains a social-empowering narrative, soul vocals, and rich harmonies. Also, the encouraging tune possesses jazzy instrumentation flavored with a strong indie-soul aroma. Furthermore, “We’ve Got Power” serves as a wonderful presentation to what type of music listeners can expect to hear from Mr. Reed in the near future.

“We took this brilliant post by Mr. Reed singing his powerful song at home by himself and turned it into a whole production. His song is deeply moving, and we believe the world needs to hear it. This is our effort to amplify his voice by creating this production to his post. We stayed loyal to the original post, and added a saxophone quartet, bass, drums, and a few magical production effects such as doubling his vocals and harmonizing it by changing the pitch.” – The Side Project
The Side Project is a band you should remember and an entertaining outfit to follow in 2020. They started in 2013 when Hai met Raz, Niswanger, and Bareket at the Bedford L stop in the NYC Subway. Since then, they have opened for the New York Philharmonic at the Concerts in the Parks series. Also, they’ve performed at The Brooklyn Bowl, The Knitting Factory, and the commencement ceremony for the Art Institute of NYC.
“We met Mr. Reed for the first time on the NYC Subway Platform (Bedford Stop). We came to busk there as a saxophone quartet and he was there playing the drums. So we decided to join forces and quickly turned the platform into a dance hall. Later on, we continued jamming together in different venues/events, including the Brooklyn Bowl.” – The Side Project
