I have been giving the French InFiné label a lot of attention later. Here is another amazing artist, Tunisian producer and DJ Deena Abdelwahed. Deena starts her music career as vocalist for the jazz band So Soulful, and later moved behind the decks in deejay collective World Full of Bass. Back in November, Deena released her first solo album ‘Khonnar’ (Pronounced “Ronnar“), which is worth listening to on Spotify. And now we can also enjoy a follow-up remix album! The ‘Khonnar Remixes’ are avaialble as a 12″ Record/Vinyl and Digital Album at Bandcamp. This remix by Ital Tek (aka Alan Myson), an English electronic musician from Brighton (who despite having six albums on Planet Mu, I have somehow missed from #SOTD so far!).
Former bassist for Artic Monkeys, Andy Nicholson is a producer/musician from Sheffield (UK). Having also founded the hip hop and indie-rock hybrid Mongrel, and being one half of Sticky Blood, the new GOLDTEETH project sees Nicholson finding and defining his own unique sound. From his forthcoming self-titled EP, ‘Doin Better’ features vocal from multi-talented and multi-faceted singer-songwriter Hannah Yadi.
Amrita “Ami” Kaur Dang is a South Asian-American vocalist, sitarist, composer and producer from Baltimore (Maryland). Her sound ranges from North Indian classical fused with noise/ambient electronics to beat-driven psych and experimental dancepop. Ami’s new, all-instrumental album Parted Plains is available to pre-order from Bandcamp, being released on Leaving Records.
Thibault Renou is a musician, composer and producer based in Paris. Trained in jazz and classical music at the conservatoire, Thibault formerly played bass for Fakear. From the album Maïsha Suite (Maïsha means “life“ in Swahili), forthcoming on InFiné label and available to pre-order on Bandcamp.
Cool new music from a friend (and ex-neighbour) of mine! Driven by a philosophy of spirit within music, Lo-Grade Lawrence explores experimental, unique and colourful blends of musical expressionism. The debut EP Purple Pyramid is out on Cambridge based Kuang Grade Recordings, and available now from Bandcamp.
He’s back! Jai Raj Paul is a British recording artist and record producer from Rayners Lane, London. It has been 7 years since his first two singles BTSTU (a previous #SOTD) and Jasmine, and Jai Paul has been on hiatus since a collection of his music was leaked in 2013. However, this week sees Jai Paul officially release his leaked album as Leak 04-13 (Bait Ones) (Spotify). And we have two new singles to enjoy, out on XL Recordings.
