NICO J WOUTERS’s approach to music production is one of a distinctly creative and experimental nature. The single “YOU’RE MY NUMBER ONE” encapsulates this very concept pretty perfectly. Throughout the five minute journey, the listener is plunged into this spiraling arena of audio samples and notes and moments. The vocal feature from “NICO J WOUTERS” is undoubtedly one of the key threads, but there are many you can pick up on as the track progresses – even among this vast and detailed, ever-changing ambiance, there are elements of character and familiarity that reappear and keep things feeling relevant throughout.
“NICO J WOUTERS” as an artist brings through a powerful fusion between the organic music world and that which is more commonly associated with rock or ambient electronica. As you witness this song unfolding, things move from the delicate to the intense within a few short minutes, and every step of that process is beautifully supported by the instrumentation and the artist’s own vocal delivery. In addition though, and multiplying the effect even further, the accompanying powerful soundscape adds plenty in the way of giving audiences a clear image or idea of “YOU’RE MY NUMBER ONE” as a creative.
The soundscape is as stunning as the song itself, and everything has been softly captured so as to lay out the bare emotions of the song and to draw your focus to the genuine connection between the words and the feelings behind them. In other words, the song clearly expresses something very true for the artist presenting them, and this gives it so much more value than something written purely to entertain. I can’t wait to hear more.
“YOU’RE MY NUMBER ONE” as you hear it below presents a listening experience that lasts for over five minutes. Rather than this making it a longer than average song, it makes it far more of a journey than a simple piece of entertainment or radio-intentional audio.

The leading vocals are stunning, emotionally poignant and holding close to the underlying sentiments of the song in a genuinely entrancing way.
