Track Review: “Last Summer”
Music with a Message
With the help of accomplished record producer and songwriter, Fernando Garibay, and pop eye candy, Jake Torrey, Andrew Rayel scores a winning goal with the production of “Last Summer”. Fresh as the morning sunrise, “Last Summer” will brew your musical teapot with its engaging and kindly guitar plucks. As Jake Torrey serenades listeners, Andrew Rayel and Fernando Garibay provide a bed of electronic music perfection for listeners to cuddle up in as the track endures.
If ever saying good bye to someone is not as good as one would have wished for, then this track will speak to listeners with this sensitive experience. As such, this track is a good reminder to them to make the last moment together last forever. Ultimately, the track suggests to never regret one’s actions, but also make daring choices, especially when it comes to love.
Furthermore, “Last Summer” is a choice collaboration among these three artists. The blending of each artists’ signature musical contributions make “Last Summer” the song that lasts forever for you and your Honey. Not only is this track a sure favorite for the #Rayelfamily, but also for any ear it meets.
All three of these artists share one definite gift: the gift of working well with other people. For example, each artist has their independent rosters of collaborations with other people including talented recording artists. These collaborations span decades, proving their consistent ability to work well with people.
Such ability to do so is evident in the musical influences of each production where they seem to adapt many sides of music into their work, including sounds from Trance, Pop, R&B, and Hip-Hop. This demonstrates a high level of versatility in their musical approaches. Also, it shows they know that their keen ability of forming an organic alliance with each other is the key to a winning partnership. Listen to the result of their interpersonal dynamic in music production, below.

Since Pop music is a giant melting pot of all sounds, Andrew is a sure future victor in the scene. There are few EDM and Trance DJs that can hit the nail on the head when it comes to making Pop music. Andrew Rayel is an exception because of his track, “Last Summer” is sublimly different than most of modern electronic pop music as there is not too much of one genre overpowering another, here, Andrew Rayel strikes balance with a “less is more” approach. Therefore, “Last Summer” is best described as “pristine pop”. Having the assistance of young prodigy Fernando Garibay, Andrew Rayel and Jake Torrey really shine.
The grounded emotional heart felt through Andrew Rayel’s piano chords creates a cozy roost for Jake Torrey’s fetching heartthrob vocals as during the pre-chorus. After the second hit of the replay button, “Last Summer” will have listeners singing the sweet and pleasant hook all summer long.
