The producer and songwriter of electronic dance music known as Rick Tarbox has released his latest official single, “Ride On” featuring Johnny King. The track is an upbeat, vivifying digital track composed and produced in the original tradition of the best house music ever created. “Ride On” has been published in both a standard and extended mix, the latter of which scores the listener nearly 10 minutes of energetic dance floor fuel. Pulsing, pounding, thumping and jamming, “Ride On” featuring Johnny King is the latest example of what Rick Tarbox is capable of at any given moment.
“Ride On” comes to fans of the EDM and house-music sounds courtesy of Tarbo Records, the same umbrella under which Serafia’s “Touching My Soul” single appeared on 1 May 2015 just days prior. Like Serafia’s popular tune, “Ride On” brings a warmth and power to the turntable that isn’t found in just any track that drops anymore.
Speaking of this, producer and Tarbo Records exec. Rick Tarbox writes, “’Ride On’ is the beginning of an uplifting series of songs with a positive message. It is soulful house mixed with deep house and fantastic vocals in the soul style by Johnny King.”
No stranger to the music scene, himself, Johnny King is brother to famous disco and post-disco diva
Evelyn “Champagne” King, whose “Shame” single landed her on Billboard’s Top 10 in 1977, and whose “Love Come Down” and “I’m in Love” were likewise ubiquitous in the days before house music ruled the nightclubs.
While Rick Tarbox will be a new name to many audiophiles around the world, he is a hero to many listeners and longtime fans who consider him one of the most important names in dance music production. Tarbox started his music career in earnest at the age of just 22 when he began writing and producing for Motown Records. In time he would go on to produce approximately 50 albums for Motown and other major labels including Polydor and RCA among a great many others.
If “Ride On” is any sign, Tarbox clearly isn’t slowing down any time soon.
“Ride On” by Rick Tarbox feat. Johnny King is available online worldwide from Tarbo Records. Fans of the house music sound should get in early.
