“Christmas Festa” by Franchesco De Rosa

“Christmas Festa” is Franchesco De Rosa’s holiday EDM track. It’s a whirlwind of elevating beats and airy tones. The song is a twist of cinnamon and swiveled candy cane put to music. Not too sugary, not too sweet, this delicious EDM escape charms its way to the music fan’s heart. A wave of fun, a dash of spunk and a boatload of energy, “Christmas Festa” boasts little ornate details and instead feels like an improvisational party.  

Fast and loose and feeling like it’s nearing a New Year’s Eve party or celebration, “Christmas Festa” drives home a roaring electronica. Fans of EDM wanting a bit more bass beat and a heavy bass drum are going to find themselves more enamored with the melodic tones and textures. Franchesco De Rosa (Frank Robinson’s EDM stage name) is based in the UK. Besides “Christmas Festa” this busy composer records country songs under the alias Mountain Rio. His resume doesn’t end there – he’s also an author whose works include both romance novels and children’s books. How he found time to do all this is mind boggling, but the groove and the enthusiasm is nonstop in “Christmas Festa”. He balances his art very well and you get the sense in “Christmas Festa” that he uses his time wisely – what little time he has – and makes it count. The beats, the freshness of the sound is invigorating and doesn’t need any extra, well, bells and whistles to create the mood. He does it in one quick swoop. Or two.

Capturing both a sense of community and togetherness, “Christmas Festa” also has an intimacy that can trigger a deeper emotional connection. It pierces the heart in a way that feels very genuine, not as computerized as you think. Don’t get me wrong, it’s definitely EDM, but Franchesco De Rosa’s personality and love for the season shines through. I don’t think that passion can be fabricated in the studio, but it is certainly conveyed.

I think this song also paints a wintery scene. Maybe not the icy, frozen tundra, but the sounds of a crisp, fresh snow on Christmas morning imagery. Pull from your memory bank the feeling of waking up Christmas morning before the rest of the family – the anticipation that Santa has gifted the bike you’ve wanted, or the bursting at the seams because you can’t wait to open all of the presents. This song corrals those emotions, and the memories start to flood. Call it nostalgia, and I think that’s what happens when you listen to any traditional song, and you get that wave of home. That feeling of family. I think “Christmas Festa” more so than traditional carols takes that homey feeling and transports it to the modern era.

So there you have it – add “Christmas Festa” to your holiday wish list. It’s a special journey, a lively step towards total enjoyment. I had quite the euphoric experience listening; it’s sensational. It’s that tinsel that you need to decorate your holiday listening experience. It’s fabulously festive.
