Tom Bull just released a massive house/bass remix of Ayah Marar’s “Mind Controller” off her solo debut album “The Real,” and if you missed it on Tough Love’s KISS FM UK radio show, our friends at DoAndroidsDance.com happily premiered it for us, and here’s what they had to say about it:
The underground house music scene can be a bit dizzying. The different strains of house with their varying names and overlapping qualities is a bit much sometimes. One guy though who has shown he doesn’t care is Tom Bull. Tom Bull has made it to these parts a few times with his bass-laced house & garage music and is back with more of the same; but better. Remixing Ayah Marar’s “Mind Controller,” Bull brings his bass into full focus and delivers a classic ’90s house-infused dancefloor jam as Marar’s vocals soar right into place.

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?
