** PREMIERE ** Basheba – Hold On (TWB Remix)
“Sweet vocals paired with a bumpy touch and a unique visual concept. You may be in a tricky situation, but ‘Hold On’ it’ll be okay! ” Mizz Ruby
“Uniquely British black music…I suspect we will see her follow the likes of Emeli Sande and Laura Mvula on to much larger and more mainstream stages” Lindsay Wesker, MTV Music Editor
London producers The Writers Block (TWB) have contributed to a stunning remix package which also includes remixes from Drum & Bass legend, Ray Keith and producers Thief in the Night. Previously a BBC Introducing artist with her track ‘Dirty Love’, Basheba is a name you will soon be familiar with. ‘Hold On’ is taken from her debut E.P ‘Bad Friends, Good Enemies’ (out now).This darkly lyrical dance record, with a hard edge drum and bass beat and sultry vocal, explain why the likes of Rudimental have already asked to work with her on their album projects.
Basheba played the I Luv Live x Mobo unsung show and is being heavily championed by both. Oct 14 saw her play an EP launch party at The Social, London Live’s ‘Not The One Show’ (live) and a special set for Juicy Couture at their store at Westfields.
Bad Friends, Good Enemies EP is available here on iTunes
*Top 10 finalist of Mobo Unsung 2014*
NW London vocalist Basheba is back with another darkly lyrical dance record and hard hitting music video. 2014 has been a big year for Basheba. Having made it to the final ten on MOBO Unsung’s competition (beating over 400 other unsigned artists) and featuring on platforms such as BBC R1, 1xtra, Kiss FM, MTV Base, London Live, Record of the Day, Fred Perry Subculture, Refinery 29 and SB.TV. Perfecting her sound since the age of 14, Basheba combines dark, blues influenced vocals with hard-edged drum & bass beats so it’s no wonder that the likes of Rudimental and Lyracis have already asked to work with her on their album projects. A creative through & through, watch out for her own clothing brand launching in 2015. October saw Basheba performing at ‘Juicy Live Couture’ in Westfield shopping centre, alongside Show’N’Prove and Fabienne plus launching her ‘Bad Friends, Good Enemies’ EP with a headline show at London’s The Social, Oxford Circus.
