Pulse Radio had the opportunity to catch up with Ayah Marar to discuss all of her upcoming projects, including her single with Calvin Harris “Thinking About You” as well as her debut album “The Real.” Here’s a small excerpt of what Pulse Radio had to say, and you can read the entire interview here:
Ayah Marar has been plying her trade as a singer and songwriter in the electronic world for some time now, and and even if you’re not familiar with the name, chances are you’re familiar with her voice and her work behind the scenes. Born in Jordan, she moved to the UK at the age of eighteen, and it was there that her music career began to take shape. Since then, she’s made a name for herself with huge singles like “Unstoppable” and “Beg Borrow Steal,” and her voice has made it on to massive songs like Calvin Harris’ “Thinking About You”.
Over time, her style has morphed and transitioned between pop and house (with a little bit of everything else thrown in too) but she’s recently taken a new direction, and embraced the style of big room electronic music that’s been making lots of headlines recently. Her record label, Hussle Girl, has been responsible for some very innovative music, and with such a dynamic resume, we decided it was high time we catch up with the legend herself and talk shop about music, life, and her work with other great artists.
If you missed it last week, Radikal’s own Giuseppe D. was live in the mix on the Remix Top 30 Countdown and he brought a long a whole bunch of copies of our latest compilation DanceHits Supermix to give away including featurings by Ayah Marar, Melanie C, Matt Cardle, The Bello Boys, DJs From Mars, Tune In Crew, Kat DeLuna, Andreas Moe, and many more!

“Racecar Driver” by Tune In Crew was previewed to me a few months back. A naïve love story between a teenage bad-boy daredevil, and an Upper East Side rich girl, I couldn’t wait to share this mainstream sounding record when it had been made public. Also featuring vocals from Silver Medallion, his soulful crooning flawlessly complement the French duo’s electro-pop production. With its nostalgic, upbeat vibe and sense of adventure from the lyrics “Racecar Driver” by Tune In Crew featuring Silver Medallion has the potential to be a HIT record. Take a listen to the song and purchase it out now on iTunes via Radikal Records. Enjoy!
If you haven’t yet, head over to Attitude Magazine to read up on Salt Ashes’ interview on the inspiration behind “Somebody,” her upcoming projects, being compared to Kylie Minogue, and the origins of her name (it comes from a boat!) Check out an excerpt below of the interview, and head here to read it in its entirety! Oh and if you haven’t already purchased Salt Ashes’ latest single “Somebody” make sure you get it on iTunes today!
Somebody was, in fact, inspired by a break-up.
“The song is basically about that shit period you have to go through just after a break-up. It’s all of those emotions that you feel when you’re bumping into your ex at a club and seeing them with another person. You can hear in the song that he walks into the club with another girl and it fucking kills you, doesn’t it?”
The song’s video, is, erm, a bit NSFW…
“The steamy element wasn’t really in my vocabulary when I was thinking about the video. What I wanted was passion, fire and aggressiveness because fundamentally that’s what the song is about. It’s about that raw passion between people, then breaking up and still feeling that passion but feeling aggressive towards them. I wanted all that pushing and pulling.”
Despite being referred to as the “S&M Kylie”, Salt Ashes doesn’t really hear much of La Minogue in her music. However, she really doesn’t mind the comparison.
“I think with any any artist, the natural thing to want to do is relate it to something that you’ve heard – so you know where to place it. I think that Somebody is definitely very Kylie. I’m not going to deny it. It’s kind of a dark Kylie. I don’t mind, really. I think I’m going to be continuously compared to people. The aim is to be as individual as possible, which can be difficult as the industry is so saturated with new musicians. But as long as I’m trying then I’m happy.”
