The good folks at GoodMusicAllDay.com featured I.O.U.’s first single “The Other Side Of Fear” off their debut album “The Soul & The Intellect” and gave it a more than great review! Here’s what they had to say:
The first single “The Other Side Of Fear” is DOPE and I think they they can make an impact with it. Buck and Isaiah have a unique chemistry on this song that with its alternative and hip-hop vibes. For a group whose just beginning to make a name for themselves on the music scene, I.O.U.’s “The Other Side Of Fear” is a great introduction to them.

CDS Music Chart had a chance to speak with Ayah Marar on her recent rise to fame with her collaboration with Calvin Harris “Thinking About You” along with the release of her debut album The Real with the featured singles “Mind Controller,”"Unstoppable,”"Beg Borrow Steal,” and “The Raver.” Here’s what Ayah had to say about her album and what’s to come:
3. When did the plans for your album “The Real” come to mind?
They had been building for a while but it all came together when I met Will Simms and we ‘fell in love’ and decided to make something together.
4. When working on your album, did you sit down and write everything all at once or did you write over a long period of time?
We locked ourselves away for 4-5 months in a dark room and wrote and wrote and wrote every day. I loved it!
5. Which of your songs means the most to you and why?
That’s would be like choosing a favourite child, they all mean something to me in a different way.
6. What are your plans for upcoming releases, collaborations or tours?
More tracks to come in the new year, collaborations, tours of course. First single of the year will drop soon, and of course it’s very important to me to keep supporting upcoming artists and push the UK scene any way I can through my company HUSSLE GIRL.
7. What helps you write or record music?

It’s 2014, and Jersey duo I.O.U. aka Inside Our Universe is not wasting any time releasing their first single “The Other Side Of Fear” off their digitally released debut album The Soul & The Intellect, a catchy hard hitting track layered with the guy’s unique style of rapping and singing.

Popular music blog Pop On And On just reviewed The Robot Dentist’s remix of “Beg Borrow Steal” and gave it along with the original a stellar review:
“You may recognize Ayah Marar from the Calvin Harris hit single “Thinking About You”, she’s released her new single recently and I’m absolutely floored. “Beg Borrow Steal” is a fucking smash, how this is not ripping through Top 40 radio right now is beyond me…The original is great, the Robot Dentist remix is just as amazing, everything here is winning and I’m happy to have such a solid POP anthem to set the tone for 2014.”
