Today we’re pleased to bring you the exclusive video premiere of an acoustic/stripped-down version of Dez Moneys song ‘Trippin.’ Often, stripped-down versions of songs can add an entirely new texture and make for a different listing experience.
While in practice, going back to the bare-bones of a track might seem like an easy concept, but there are a few occasions in which either production or a few added bells and whistles of studio magic can conceal an extra hidden gem underneath a songs basic foundation.
With Dez, his version of the ‘Trippin” is the perfect alternative to an already fantastic studio release of the track. In a way, this more personal performance of the song is exactly like how Dez wrote the song initially (as with most of his music), with just an acoustic guitar, powerful vocals, and emotions.
Dez comments about the song by saying:
I wanted to give the listener a stripped-down acoustic version of “Trippin” with very minimal production so they could hear the song at its core with just the acoustic guitar and vocals.
This is what the song sounded like when I first wrote it. I think songs can shine in a new light when you remove certain elements that you would normally put in a big production.
By breaking the song down to just acoustic and vocals (with a little help from my friend Matt on percussion), we get a raw and more intimate perspective of “Trippin”
The original studio version Of the song was released on May 28th, Which is available on all major streaming platforms at the following link.
The multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, and producer carries on his father’s (the late and iconic Eddie Money)legacy while forging his musical path with this series of new songs and videos.
