Free download of Bulgarian songstress Ruth Koleva’s ‘What Am I Suppose To’

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , on December 19, 2013 by J.D.

Ruth Koleva - What Am I Suppose ToHaving already taken her native country by storm, 2014 is the year that this young artist becomes renowned on an international scale. Born into a volatile world of corruption and hardship in post-Communist Eastern Europe, Ruth found salvation in the classics (Marvin Gaye, Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole) and quickly developed into a rounded musician and became an ambassador for the best of Bulgaria – winning GRAZIA’s Woman of the Year.

Koleva’s ability to straddle multiple genres and tempos has made her into a highly versatile artist, which has seen her draw comparisons her contemporary, Jessie Ware. As a vocalist, her tone is imbued with warmth, particularly when speaking on matters of love and sensuality. Inspired by such era-defining artists as Erykah Badu and Jill Scott, Ruth manages to both tip her hat to the classics which have informed her sound, while still saying something new and pushing boundaries.

The album is preceded by the release of lead single ‘Turn This Around‘ on 3rd February. With its smooth jazz rhythm, rolling synth melodies and a truly mesmerising vocal performance from the Bulgarian singer, ‘Turn This Around’ makes the perfect showcase for Ruth’s confident songwriting talent and her ability to break hearts, as the track builds to a poignant final breakdown.

Silver Man – Analog X

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , on December 19, 2013 by J.D.

PrintSilver Man is the moniker of Outpost Media founder David Silverman.  Giving up the dream of becoming a producer in his late twenties in favour of building one of the UK’s leading Music PR companies, ‘Analog X’ is the first single taken from the collection of unreleased tracks that comprise the forthcoming album, ‘Thieves and Millionaires’, out in March 2014.

David’s tracks were made over a 5 year period, and his musical influences can be said to come from anything from Ninja Tune artists through to the likes of RJD2Bonobo, and the Tru Thoughts sound in general.

Downtempo at its darkest, ‘Analog X’ weaves a musical thread through the combination of loose percussion, juxtaposed against an overlay of eerie strings and haunting vocal samples. Silver Man’s influences burst through the composition, and there is a melancholy to the song that reflects the time in which it was written, describing a sense of desperation in wanting to achieve something beautiful.

The Diesler Remix transforms the original, giving it an upbeat and energized alteration using catchy piano chords and quick percussion beats.

Hailing from Manchester, David’s story begins with a career forged in music, playing in several bands before being awarded a £5k Awards For All Lottery Grant to set up a community based record label and night, Propaganda, in 1999. He went on to forge a path within music PR, working with The Big Chill Festival, Ninja Tune, Warp, Stones Throw and a list of artists, festivals and labels too numerous to mention. Continuing with his own music projects, he received early interest from Hope recordings and Pork recordings and eventually signed a deal with Tru Thoughts in 2003, whilst still DJing and promoting nights all over London.

Set to garner considerable attention, Silver Man’s intricate and evocative ‘Analog X’ is released on the 3rd of January 2014.

Rafi eL – Senda (Official Video)

rafi el
Los Angeles based producer/vocalist – Rafi eL has just released his new video for “Senda” . It’s off of his upcoming debut album Ay De Mi, out on Jan. 28th on Dutty Artz.

For “Senda,” the lead single off his upcoming album on Dutty Artz, Rafi eL decided to travel to El Salvador and work with Salvadoran director Edson Amaya. Through his close friends in L.A.’s Salvadoran community, Rafi was connected with Edson, who is known in El Salvador not only as an accomplished video director, but also for his work with the National Museum of Anthropology to incubate a Salvadoran film-making culture. Together, Edson and Rafi developed the “castaway” inspired concept for the video, with a few crucial twists that spoke to the transformative power of music and dance. It was shot on a near-deserted beach on Salvador’s coast, a perfect setting for the song’s tale of a seeker trying to find his way through the modern jungle.
