LadyDot Review: Szigeti Juli – Don’t Stop
This is what freedom sounds like! A sentimental journey to Hungary with Szigeti Juli – “Don’t Stop”. I love Hungary. Before the Covid-19 I used to go there at least once a year. I always dreamed of living in Budapest. I love:
- Hungarian cuisine (I could eat goulash every day)
- Hungarian language (despite the fact that it’s so difficult and I don’t understand anything about it. It has one similarity with Polish language: you can hear the “sh” sound all the time :))
- and most of all, I love Hungarians. They have amazing energy, they like to have fun and they are positive towards Poles. We even have a saying: “Pole and Hungarian – two brothers”!
You already know what I will write about today: Szigeti Juli have recently released a new song – “Don’t Stop”. Without stopping, let’s get down to business!
At the beginning we can hear a clear beat of the drums, which is perfectly complemented by subtle keyboard sounds. Be sure to pay attention to the breaks between the verse and the chorus, because there the keyboard and the saxophone work perfectly together. This theme is very catchy. I’ve been humming it all day!
“Don’t Stop” is a single full of sunny saxophone, energetic vocals (I immediately feel like starting to smile!), fantastic, gentle guitar and a very pleasant keyboard melody. A real “swing in Spring”. :)
I’m sure you’ve noticed that when Juli finishes her vocal part, at many moments her voice seamlessly transitions into the sounds of the saxophone. It sounds really good.
I mentioned earlier that I really like Hungarian language. And you know what? I would love to listen to “Don’t Stop” in Hungarian. I guarantee it would be a hit in the local charts for sure!
I listened to the new track from Szigeti Juli with great pleasure. After some more thinking I can say that “Don’t Stop” is, in my opinion, their best song. With this new release, I’m optimistic about the future, believing that very soon I will go to Budapest and spend time on Erzsébet tér or go to one of my favorite pubs on Kazinczy utca And then I would love to have a glass of Tokaj wine on the banks of the Danube river with Juli and her band! :)

Bio – LadyDot
Anna (LadyDot) was born in ’94, but always felt she came from the Golden Twenties. “Polka” in Polish means “girl from Poland”, so she’s “Polka in polka dots”. She loves vintage style and spontaneous travels around Europe. But her greatest love (apart from her husband) is of course music, especially Electro Swing.
On her own Blog www.jawizeruk.pl she writes about various music genres. She is a copywriter, so writing is her strong point. Anna likes singing (not only in the shower!) and cooking (especially Italian and Hungarian cuisine).
