These four lovely ladies call themselves the "Vaginas of Rudimental". Why you ask? Because they can sing and their amazing vocals are featured on Rudimental's debut EP - Home. The foursome consists of Ella Eyre (right), Sinead Harnett (middle-back), Anne-Marie (left) and Becky Hill (middle-front) - all rising stars from the UK. Here the girls cover "Royals" by Lorde - wow. It's no wonder why Rudimental chose these four babes to feature on their album. Rudimental is opening for Ellie Goulding on her tour - catch them in Calgary on April 26th.
Ps. I've included three tracks that feature Ella, Sinead and Becky. Drum & base anyone? Get at me.
Beats on beets on bytes. Brapppp. Happy pumpkin carving everyone, stay tuned for a Ladywood special...
A Saturday night Haiku for U!
Gettin' richter yo!
Big ballin' outta contro'
Grab yo grill, let's go.
I started a math equation. What do these three pictures equal? I would say some greatness in a song called Free but what do you guys think...?-Rayray
Keep your eyes out for the heavy hitting singer/songwriter Kat Dhalia's because she's coming in hot! Her first album My Garden is set to release any time now and she's already premiered a few of her songs. I deeply appreciate Kat's singing abilities and infectious storytelling because we hear a lot of manipulated voices on the main stage these days. Dhalia's harsh beats and dark sentiments paint a refreshing female image. Raised in Miami by a Cuban community she fluently speaks English and Spanish. In her track 'Ganster' she sings about the struggles of her parent's finances and what it was like to make money on her own. In 2010 she moved to New York with the money she made waitressing and funded her own studio time, music video and EP. It wasn't until last year that she signed to Epic Records via the Vested in Culture label. She was charged with a DUI late July but she's hopefully learned from that mistake and is reaching for greater things in future. This fierce songstress can embody any genre so don't miss out on what she's got to say. Give her time to break into your mind because she'll take you for a ride.
I'm in a Mos Def mood today so here is another mix by Rich e Fresh. It's a remixed song with a Samba twist so its nice and crisp. Rich e Fresh puts together hip hop, samba, bossa nova, and jazz and. He's 18 years young and describes himself as a "lifetime music enthusiast." He's definitely on my radar as I get set to travel Brazil for the World Cup next year.
A funky mix for a funky Monday. Mos Def and Aretha Franklin are smoooooth.
Check out North Carolina's Phlo Deli doing his thing on the mic. Gangster Shxt features Phlo with Bonafide and C.Pitt. Its a little hip hop for the kids that needs some rhyme time.
