Lifestyle e-zine, Chasseur Magazine did a nice write up for Ayah Marar’s The Real, which is set to drop on Radikal Records on July 9th. With that said, Chasseur Magazine commented on her latest single “Alive” calling it a “track grabbing a bit of Tulisa’s streetstyle attitude on one side, the bold look of Jessie J on another and a pop refrain that could easily fit into one of The Saturdays’ albums, the energy though is palpable and will definitely make the dancefloors and festival goers shake.” Chasseur also featured the clip, which you can also see below.

“Alive” is the premier single for the American release off Ayah Marar’s debut album “The Real.” Championed by the likes of Q Magazine (four stars), Dazed Digital, Attitude, Mix Mag, Timeout and The Sun who have labeled her the “Queen Of Bass,” this single is Ayah’s first foray back into dubstep since her “Follow U” release with Yogi on Ministry of Sound. Having been a fan of both Funtcase and P Money (a fellow south Londoner), this seemed the perfect time to bring them together. Big, bashy, dark and very unafraid, Ayah’s penchant for unusual collaborations means that her tracks span a variety of genres making them relevant to an even wider demographic, and “Alive” is no different. The official video has racked up over 160,000 views on VEVO Online.
Well known amongst the electronic music community in the UK, Ayah’s dedication to her music has earned her the rightful title of “The Queen Of Bass.” Her debut album, “The Real” has been attracting widespread attention and critical acclaim, with a recent Vibe Magazine interview, Music Week featuring her song “Alive” as Track Of The Week, and Ayah winning Best Female Artist in the 2013 Drum And Bass Awards.
Dance music is a broad church, but within each parish there’s usually a set of rules. A doesn’t always go with B, and X shouldn’t really mix with Y, but sometimes those rules are meant to be broken or manipulated into odd new shapes. Ayah Marar’s kaleidoscopic debut album, “The Real,” is a case in point: thirteen songs that take inspiration from the underground dance scene, cherry-picking the very best elements of drum and bass, techno and house and bolting them onto well-crafted pop hooks that look set to shatter dance floors. “It’s an homage to dance music in whatever form, whether it’s garage or two step or house or drum and bass,” she explains.
With seemingly every other new pop star trying to marry a gargantuan dance beat to a pretty melody, it’s a competitive world. The difference here is that Ayah Marar isn’t faking it. She lives the life of an underground dance fiend, of a DJ and MC, of a strong woman in a male-dominated industry. Her two worlds, the underground and the mainstream, have been brought together organically, co-existing in a way that sounds fresh rather than forced. “I’m trying something that I don’t think has been done in the way we’re trying to do it,” Marar states. “It’s what I love to do; it’s trying to find that balance.
