Review: Deltiimo & Marley Blandford – 'On My Own Again (Single)'


Marley Blandford a singer-songwriter, guitarist and pianist from Portsmouth in the UK who has a natural talent for blending pop, soul, and folk music into brilliant pieces of music. His work has received airplay from the likes of BBC Radio 2, with his single ‘Feel The Rain’ being hailed as a certified hit. Marley himself has gained praise from Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics and X Factor Winner Matt Cardle, and now with a new collaboration with Deltiimo, he’s in the presence of a greatness.


A powerful duo of veteran British songwriter, lyricist, and producer Gary Louca and international songwriter and producer Bradon Grobler, Deltiimo is one of the UK’s hottest, pop music production duo. Their partnership with Marley Blandford on the new single is a perfect cohesive achievement. Born from the bones of an original song by Grobler, all three artists brought the song to life, and so far it’s been a massive hit. Hitting the Number 1 spots on DJ Playlists and Kings of Spins, it’s also made it’s way to Number 35 on MusicWorx’s North American DJ charts.


A modern club anthem, the new single appears in two forms, the vibrant radio cut, and the expansive extended club mix. From a slow-burning, atmospheric beginning comes a wave of glistening synth notes and poignant vocals, showcasing Marley’s talents and balancing the instrumentals perfectly. It’s an invigorating beginning, one that takes the unrelenting energy of timeless pop and melds it seamlessly with Deltiimo’s knack for infusing any melody with a euphoric backbone.


It’s a collaboration that manages to take on the best of all artists in equal measure, and upon hearing the track you would swear that the trio have been working together for years. There is a seamless, organic feel to the track, with the weighting behind Marley’s vocals landing soundly upon Grobler’s composition. It’s light, anthemic, and purpose-built to start a party. It’s another vivid and powerful anthem from Deltiimo and a massive step into the world of club anthems for Marley Blandford.

You can stream both versions of ‘On My Own Again’ now on Spotify.
