Alitheia, means truth in greek.

Nasa explains: We always tend to speak the truth when we’re intoxicated so the song represents a moment of struggle between holding back and being honest with someone you love.

Check out the video:

 

The track came out of a car ride with producer TruOmega and it was then brought to life by Nasa.

He overcame dark times to reach where he is now, rising West-London-based singer Nasa Woods comes through with ‘Alitheia’, sporting an experimental urban sound that competes with the likes of Zayn Malik, Usher and Justin Timberlake.

 

Jazz Mino – Hurt

Pop

 

Talking about the single ‘Hurt’, Jazz Mino says “Hurt is by far the most honest and difficult song that I’ve ever written, and the closest to my heart. Many see me as a happy and positive artist, so initially I was hesitant about releasing my true feelings; but everybody goes through extremely difficult times and to cut out such a devastating time of my life, and pretend that losing somebody so close to me has had no effect; would be a false and dishonest reflection on my life”.

She has supported Lianne La Havas, The Noissettes, Stornoway (How The Light Gets In festival), Professor Green (Kiss FM Music Cube) and Lucy Rose (BUPA Westminster Mile, Innocent Unplugged). She has also performed at Innocent Unplugged Festival, BUPA Feel Great Britain Festival, BBC Bristol live session, Beefeater Gin Sponsored Bulgaria tour, Ronnie Scotts Jazz Bar (Upstairs),

She has also been featured on Record Of The Day (Superwoman single), Breeze FM record of the week and Ticketmaster Rising Star!

“Hurt” will be available from September 23rd  

Kids on Bridges featuring Zigaboo Modeliste

Alternative, Electronica, Funk, Pop

This has to be one of the strangest collaborations on paper, but it really works! The electro synths of Liverpool’s Kids On Bridges meets the New Orleans Funk of Zigaboo Modeliste from legendary band The Meters, producing ‘Say Ok‘, a perfect feel good summer track.

Described as Beck meets Prince and so fresh you could eat it, the track has already had 88000 plays on Spotify thanks to Kids on Bridges’ growing reputation as one of the UK’s most exciting emerging bands through their top 25 iTunes hit ‘Something in the Water‘ and Hype Machine Number 1 ‘When The Needle Drops‘.

This unlikely but inspired collaboration came about when Zigaboo and Kids on Bridges singer Christian Bragg first met at a Jazz Festival in New Orleans; their subsequent bonding over a mutal love of funk and electro was further bolstered by Christian’s love of all things New Orleans. Kids on Bridges were invited to remix two tracks on Zigaboo’s EP ‘New Life’ and his appearance on ‘Say OK’ was a natural progression.

Kids on Bridges have headlined two shows at legendery New Orleans venue Tipitinas, appeared at MOM’s Halloween Ball and Christian DJ’d at The Meters reunion gig at the Howling Wolf. The growing connection between the two bands led Kids on Bridges to join Zigaboo for a jam session in London where ‘Say OK’ was born.

Kids on Bridges’ New Orleans Connection continues to grow; they’ve supported The Hot 8 Brass Band, worked with New Orleans poet Chuck Perkins and the Grammy nominated singer Ledisi. The have also opened for Friendly Fires, Soulwax, 2ManyDJs and LCD Sound System as well as representing the UK at The Special Olympics alongside Stevie Wonder and Beck.
