LISTEN TO GOLDEN HERE TO
At the age of just 19 years old, singer/ song-writer Kara Marni is set to make her mark on the world, with her uniquely modern RnB sound, tinged with the vocal inflections of the vintage hey-day of Soul, and Pop.
Releasing her debut single ‘Golden’ today via Wonderland Magazine, the young vocalist found inspiration in the uncomplicated ‘honeymoon’ period of a relationship. The song speaks volumes of talent; the perfect introduction to the quite frankly awe-inspiring vocal abilities of Kara Marni.
Having grown up obsessed by Minnie Riperton, Kara’s desire to hone her singing voice was overwhelming. She set up a leopard print lined shed studio at the end of her garden, and began to cover her favourite artists from Roberta Flack to Anita Baker, Amy Winehouse, Jazmine Sullivan, Lauryn Hill and more.
Introducing herself to her own creativity, Kara enrolled in Brit School and began to write her own material, moving from strength to strength, and catching the eyes of the likes of UK Producer Maths Time Joy, MNEK, and more.
Finding herself in the studio with The Invisible Men (Rita Ora, Britney Spears, Iggy Azalea), Kara wrote “Golden”, and has unknowingly flung herself firmly into the realms of ‘one to watch’ for 2018.
Stay tuned for more from Kara Marni.

REVEALS NEW SINGLE AND VIDEO ‘CURE’
Today, South African performer, songwriter and visual artist, Gina Kushka reveals her new single ‘Cure’ and its accompanying video. Watch here: https://youtu.be/qVqiwteZKQU
Directed by Drew Cox (Jorja Smith, JP Cooper), the video for ‘Cure’ is defined by vibrant bursts of colour, mind-bending effects and a wholly mesmeric atmosphere, serving as a statement of intent from Gina. A visionary through and through, Gina seeks to blur the lines between art and music, challenging her audience to enter her own private wonderland, scored by sizzling synths, a striking vocal delivery and deeply personal lyrics.
Of the track, Gina says: “I wrote Cure after coming out of a six-year relationship. I'd describe the time after the break up as a passionate toxicity, in which we kept going back to each other because we thought it was the only cure for our pain. Instead, we were just constantly re-opening old wounds rather than allowing each other to heal. I wanted to write about this as honestly as I could, because I know this is something a lot of people have experienced. Writing about it eventually became the Cure.”
Gina has spent the past few years working tirelessly with some of the most sought-after names in music, crafting hits for the likes of Ray BLK, Sigala and Jonas Blue, with whom she recently collaborated for VEVO LIFT. Her main ambition, however, has always been to hone her own craft and to make her mark on the industry as a solo artist. Now, with a bank of piping hot solo material and world of fresh, innovative ideas ready to be executed, Gina is ready for the world to know her name for more than just a writing credit.

LISTEN TO BREATHE NOW
SEE SOLEIMA LIVE AT THE WAY OUT WEST PRE-PARTY, AUGUST 13TH, KÄGELBANAN STOCKHOLM
Soleima has cast an enigmatic and hypnotic spell with her debut mini-album ‘No.14’. It presents an artist with a singular take on pop which is it once immediately engaging and fascinatingly off-kilter. The Danish musician’s heady cocktail of pitch-shifted synths, R&B, future bass and an undercurrent of world music is already something quite apart from the pack, but her vocal – simultaneously otherworldly, childlike in its innocence and sweetly sensual – elevates her individualistic style to another level.
These traits all resonate in her new version of album track and Hoodboi collab ‘Breathe’ which has now been boosted with a fresh new feature courtesy of Kranium. The Jamaican dancehall star behind the hits ‘Nobody Has To Know’ and ‘We Can’ brings an intoxicating island vibe to the ‘Breathe’ which adds another layer of invention to the track’s modernist alt-pop.
While her tracks escape easy genre classification, Soleima’s own story is similarly unconventional. Raised in Aarhus, a city on the Jutland peninsula, Soleima grew up in a family home soundtracked by classic soul and R&B, notably Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder and Otis Redding.
So far, so normal? Pretty much. Yet that’s only a snippet of the tale. Soleima’s mother took her to an African dance camp which operated as a cultural exchange between Denmark and Sukumaland in Tanzania, and she soon became enamoured with their music – especially with their collection of traditional African drums such as the bunugule. As a young adult, she moved out to Sukumaland for two extended spells, and even organised a grant to allow some of their members to live and teach in Denmark. She subsequently earned a bachelor’s degree in Anthropology, did field work in Nepal and started to make a documentary about migration in Senegal.
That open-mindedness informed Soleima’s first music project Flødeklinikken, a Danish-language hip-hop septet inspired by A Tribe Called Quest and the Wu-TangClan. Formed as teenagers, the collective released two albums with Soleima on keyboards and – when needed – on vocal hooks too.
“When you’ve been writing with so many people, you reach a stage where you want to fly out yourself,” she explains. The idea was to write for other artists, but the immediacy of her connection with producers Vera and Vasco convinced her to further “explore the universe” that her organically-infused electro-pop now inhibits. “People have difficulties defining our genre because their background is in rock music and I come from hip-hop and this African dance environment.”
Ultimately Soleima’s unique trait is in uniting disparate styles – cutting-edge productions with an immediate pop core, and relatable lyrical themes which simultaneously explore societal issues and the very meaning of what it is to be human.
