Harina brings joy and awareness in her festive offering, ‘Last Christmas’

German singer-songwriter HARINA left her dentistry studies in 2016, in order to move to London and become an artist. She completed her Bachelor of Arts at BIMM London and soon after was signed to Universal sub-label, Polydor with her duo project Zazoo.

The duo’s first Single ‘Spinnin’ Round’ was released in November 2018 and generated over 300k plays across all platforms, including numerous radio plays. Due to health reasons, the duo was unfortunately unable to continue performing together within the industry. Since then, HARINA has been focusing on her Solo Project and has put together a catalogue of songs ready to be released in 2020.

Her sound is current, edgy and poppy with smooth, sweet vocals carrying catchy melodies. As a teaser of what’s to come, she is released her single, ‘Last Christmas’ on Friday (6th December). A quirky, fun, trap Christmas song, that if you listen carefully, is importantly raising awareness of the risks of Climate Crisis and the impact it can have on the environment. A pop song with substance and an imperative message which this artist shares in a clever and unique way.

Song of the Day: ETA – Madison Paris

A captivating discovery, MADISON PARIS has a fluidity to her sound that drifts wide into the soundsphere. Empowering as it is enchanting, her latest single E.T.A premiered via DJ Target on BBC 1Xtra is sexy, classy, smooth and a beautiful moment for UK R&B.

Making her debut just under two years ago, the British star has worked solidly defining her sound, style and striking look with audio and visual releases including ‘Skin Good’ and ‘Triple’, leading to rapturous applause from her peers and a constant stream of new fans and supporters. Her sound is defined by her ability to write and deliver seductive moments scattered with genuine London sass, alongside shimmering vocals and stylistic flourishes that make her truly unique.

It’s undoubtedly her dazzling talent and her perfect combination of femininity with genuine homegrown, British swagger that led to FootAsylum snapping her up to be the face of their collaboration with Nike for their Utility Boot campaign, featuring her single ‘Rum & Wine’. Further exclusive appearances and support are dotted in the archives across BBC Radio 1Xtra, Rinse FM and US support from Dash Radio, as well as highlights of Madison’s performances at BBC Music Fringe Festival, El Dorado Festival and opening the main stage at The Ends Festival. Meanwhile the upwards spiral of views and streams across her growing repertoire point to a promise of longevity.

‘ETA’ delivers what Madison Paris refers to as ‘Me’. Featuring hypnotic vocals complimented by Sokari’s (Kojey Radical, Stefflon Don), slick production, she is the master of commanding atmospheric, instrumental beats, taking you on a journey that’s almost tangible.

Jessica Wilde blends old soul with savvy street defiance on new single ‘Out Of My ooo’

Following her debut ‘Cry For Me’, which was premiered as BBC Radio 1xtra’s ‘Record Of The Week’, Brixton raised singer JESSICA WILDE is ready to sweep you off your feet with a sassy new single ‘Out Of My ooo’.

The single bursts with classic soul style blended with street savvy defiance. This creative fusion reflects her multicultural upbringing; brought up on her St Helenian mother’s obsession with jazz and soul, Jessica doused it with hip hop leanings and set it a light.

With its brass, bouncy bass and finger-clicking strut tempo it’s impossible not to get hooked on ‘Out Of My ooo’ and its attitude infused swing. It’s the type of top songwriting that has seen Jessica sign a publishing deal with Sony ATV and work with luminaries such as Ghetts and Tough Love. Another of her self-penned tracks ‘Strangers Love’ was recently released by renowned Korean K-pop label SM Entertainment and her recent co-write with Rudimental, ‘More Than Anything’ featured vocals from Emile Sande and made their album.

The session at Ne-Yo’s Hollywood studio, with producer Kizzo (Ne-Yo, Afrojack) was a defining moment for Jessica – not only because she survived a bizarre, high speed LA crash moments before the recording began, but because her own project was borne and the basis of her upcoming singles took form. Three months in LA, and several purposefully missed flights later, Jessica returned to London, ready to showcase herself and her music to the world…

With its festive glow and stylish addictive refrain ‘Out Of My ooo’ is set to put Jessica Wilde firmly on the map this winter as an unmissable diverse artist who embraces the best of classic songwriting and instills it with bite.
