Artist Salt Ashes has released a mix for our friends at Noisey and Vice’s new series: Sleeve Notes, which features themed mixes by original artists. Here’s an excerpt of what they had to say, click here for the full article and stream the full mix below:
“Salt Ashes sprung to attention last year with a cover of Depeche Mode’s “Black Celebration”. She’s got a lot of great backing already: Clash said she managed to imprint her identity on the “Black Celebration” without “losing sight of the integral ingredients that made the original so special” and the follow-up single, “Someday”, recieved props from Popjustice who said it was the perfect antidote for everyone currently waiting for Kylie Minogue to pull her finger out and they’re not lying – “Someday” is an elegant slice of delectable electro-pop..”
Come this Tuesday, “Breeze” by MDNGHT will be available online. You can pre-order the EP, here.
Our friends over at PopOnAndOn.com have given us the pleasure of premiering the latest music video for the Salt Ashes’ dark pop 80′s Madonna inspired single “If You Let Me Go.” Read an excerpt below on what they had to say, and you can read the full feature here:

If you missed it last night, Phil Taggart over at BBC1 Radio featured Salt Ashes‘ follow-up single “If You Let Me Go” on his evening radio show after discovering the song via a fan on Twitter. You can stream the live broadcast on their website here. Here’s what Phil had to say when presenting the record: “Apparently that track was made by sleeping on floors in New York, Ibiza and Berlin. If that’s the quality of a track sleeping on people’s floors, imagine if she had a week in the studio…bit of Kate Bush in there…loving it!’”

With the original mixes currently at #5 on the Billboard Dance/Club chart, “Shelter Me” by Lee Dagger, featuring Inaya Day, now receives a nu-disco remix treatment by UK producer Fridholm (better known as Cruelty for his darker electronic works) who has also produced for Salt Ashes and her latest tracks “Somebody” and “If You Let Me Go.”
“Shelter Me” was born after a chance meeting on a dance floor between Inaya Day and Lee Dagger at ADE in 2013. DJ Chris Cox and Lee Dagger ventured to the DEF MIX party to see the late great Frankie Knuckles, David Morales and Hector Romero spin. After spending the next 6 hours on the dance floor with house legends, Crystal Waters, Duane Harden, Ultra Nate and Chris Willis, Lee Dagger and Inaya Day, hit it off, and as soon as they touched down in London, they hit the studio and wrote “Shelter Me.”

Today marks the worldwide release date for Salt Ashes’ follow up single “If You Let Me Go” and our friends at Indie Shuffle loved the record so much that they happily premiered it for us! Here’s what they had to say about it:
Salt Ashes’ newest single has a very uplifting quality. That is exactly what we all need today, being that it’s a Monday. Does anyone really like Mondays? (Rhetorical question.)
We hear some cool stories how songs were written, but while sleeping on floors between Ibiza, New York, and Berlin is a rarity. The quality of this track makes me question that statement. If it is true, and Salt Ashes keeps putting out hits like this, she won’t be sleeping on floors too long.
“If You Let Me Go” combines a bright disco style with some darker melodies, and is the perfect end of summer anthem. I almost feel wrong for saying this, but the ending riff that coincides with the drums is my favorite part. You’re probably thinking that is an odd thing to point out, but it really adds a lot of replay value to me. This song will be on repeat all day for me!

“If You Let Me Go” is available now for download on iTunes, Bandcamp, and Beatport. The single is also available for streaming on Spotify.
Emerging singer Salt Ashes, aka 22 year old Veiga Sanchez, will release her second single ‘If You Let Me Go’ September 2nd. Written and produced while sleeping on floors between Ibiza, New York and Berlin, it takes in her love for epic electronic grooves and melancholy drenched melodies with a nod to early eighties Madonna and the New York club scene. Obsessed with Giorgio Moroder’s blend of disco and epic dark atmospheres, the Brighton based songstress first sprang to attention with her inspired cover of Depeche Mode’s ‘Black Celebration’. In March this year she released her debut single ‘Somebody’, an elegant synth pop excursion that received rave reviews and created a real buzz about this super talented newcomer.
This summer Salt Ashes played some key festivals including The Great Escape and Glastonbury and she’s gearing up for shows in London and Brighton in September, to be announced!
