Damage Is Done feat. Shuanise – Elements

Apparently, there’s a bonus album to the Nihon Kizuna compilation in the making and here’s a first taster from Damage Is Done, otherwise known as fLako and Hubert Daviz.

According to Up My Alley the compilation will be out as soon as tomorrow, so we’ll probably post another reminder soon!

Shuanise – Voice of Reason Remixes

Cover Artwork

Last autumn, Baggage for Sale by Shuanise was one of those tracks that had my head spinning for weeks. Following several collaborations and a 7-inch on Eglo Records, she now returns to UpMyAlley with two remixes of her Voice of Reason EP.

Both remixers are taking Shuanise’s soulful music into more electronic territories. The first remix comes from Finnish producer Desto, best known for his work as bleepy dubstep producer.

On the flip you’lll find a remix from UpMyAlley’s latest signing: Paris based beatmaker Powell, who is also responsible for the latest La Mixette.

The Voice of Reason Remixes will be out as digital-only release on April 30, get your copy from Juno Download.

Shuanise – Baggage for Sale

Cologne’s UpMyAlley are about to release a new 12-inch from emerging artist Shuanise, who you might remember from her cover-version of Coltrane’s Naima. A first taster has been posted on the label’s SoundCloud page, leaving me most excited to hear more from her!

Watch out for Shuanise’s Voice Of Reason EP in a shop near you, the release-date is October 2, 2009.

In this interview, the London-based singer also mentions an upcoming release on Eglo Records to look out for. The above-mentioned Masudasante Naima can be downloaded for free.
