NEW SYDNEY SOUL MUSIC: Sarsha Simone (20SYL, DOJO CUTS) Drops New Single ‘Let’s Dance’

One of our favorite local singers, SARSHA SIMONE (of DOJO CUTS) drops her new single ‘Lets Dance’ last week and we are seriously feeling the new sound.

“Let’s Dance”the debut solo single from the intriguing Australian singer Sarsha Simone was officially released to digital last week, “Let’s Dance” has been creating buzz since,
Reaching #82 on the Australian iTunes R&B chart after it’s release over the weekend, “Let’s Dance” is one track you won’t want to sleep on as it walks the line between the edginess of electronic styles and the warmth of R&B.

The closest artist comparison would have to be the urban swank styling of Jidenna crossed with electronic favourites Disclosure. Lyrically, “Let’s Dance” contemplates the freedom and happiness people are always looking to outside sources for, when in reality the answer is within them

NEW JAZZ heat out of Finland: Dalindèo : Kallio on BBE Records

Dalindèo : Kallio

Dalindèo’s music is a cinematic jazz creation reminiscient of the ambience of movies by Finnish great Aki Kaurismäki mixed with a Tarantinoesque vibe of danger and suspense. Kallio, initially released only in Finland, won the prize of “Best Jazz Album of 2013” at the Emma-Awards, the Finnish Grammys. A musical hommage to the Kallio-district in Helsinki, it debuted on the Finnish album-chart at number 13, one of the highest ranking jazz albums of all time and stayed on the chart for 6 weeks. We at BBE are very proud to present Kallio to a wider, international audience now. Especially for the worldwide release on BBE the band added an exclusive unreleased bonus track to the album and BBE family-member Mr Bird did a brilliant remix of the track “Rhythm of Kallio”
