The Huffington Post Features Tony Moran & Martha Wash for Their New Single, “Free People”

Tony Moran & Martha Wash Featured on Huffington PostThe Huffington Post has featured Tony Moran and Martha Wash for their recent collaboration on “Free People.” The new single follows up their previous collaboration on “I’m Not Coming Down” last year, and “Keep Your Body Working” in 2007 which hit #2 and #1 on the Billboard Dance Club Chart respectively.

For the feature writer Dustin Fitzharris spoke with both Moran and Wash about the inspiration behind the track and what it was like to collaborate together again.

“In a time where people Photoshop their faces because they worry about if they’re too thin or too fat or too ugly or too dark, you should just care about the way you want to look for yourself. You have the power,” Moran says about the song he wrote and produced.

For years Wash has personified the message in “Free People.” From her early days with Sylvester with singing partner Izora Armstead to hits like “Just Us” as Two Tons O’ Fun and then later as The Weather Girls with “It’s Raining Men,” Wash has never let preconceived notions on image stand in her way. She set the music industry on fire in 1991 when she sang the lead vocals on C&C Music Factory’s #1 hit, “Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now),” but failed to receive credit because her size was deemed unmarketable. She won a lawsuit, and by speaking up for herself, it is now mandatory for artists to receive rightful credits on albums and music videos.

Martha, what is it about Tony that you love?

Martha Wash: He’s worked with the best over the years and made hits for them. He’s been able to do that year after year. We just go in the studio and talk about what needs to be done and basically do it. We’re comfortable enough with each other that we can read each other and figure out where a song needs to go.

Tony: People are constantly being introduced to her voice. We are basically underdogs working together. It’s not like we have Clive Davis’ staff with us. We’re looking to put out good music in a time where music is in such a state of purgatory with streaming and mashups. The one thing you can really hold on to is an artist’s performance, and Martha has always been there to make herself available.

Tony Moran & Martha Wash - ‘Free People (Volume 1)’ is available now for download on iTunesBeatportBandcamp and streaming on Spotify. Look for Free People (Volume 2), featuring 12 new mixes of the single, available March 17th, 2015 on Radikal Records.

Salt Ashes Releases New Single “Raided,” Available Now on Radikal Records

Salt Ashes - Raided

Emerging singer Salt Ashes releases her new single, “Raided” today, March 10th, 2015 on Radikal Records. Obsessed with Giorgio Moroder’s blend of disco and epic dark atmospheres, Salt Ashes, aka 22 year old Veiga Sanchez, broke into the dance music scene last year with the release of several singles and accompanying remixes.

“Raided” sees Salt Ashes building upon her unique blend of synth-pop, but taking her sound in a slightly darker direction. Clash Magazine, who premiered the track, spoke with Salt Ashes about her inspiration behind the single.

“A friend took me to an underground club in Berlin that reminded me of Warhol’s ‘Factory’. Everyone seemed to be escaping the outside world, hiding whatever secret or story they had. I became fascinated by them and tried to imagine what their real stories were which lead me to write ‘Raided’.”


The music video for “Raided” was directed by Debbie Scanlan and Liz Adams of De La Muerte Films, who worked with Salt Ashes on her previous video for “If You Let Me Go.” In an interview with Wonderland Magazine Salt Ashes spoke on the video:

“I wanted to create something with a dark B-movie, late-night kind of vibe, probably because I’d been watching a lot of Neo-noir, thriller movies at the time. We wanted to create something trippy and surreal with the idea of allowing the viewer to decide what is and isn’t reality.”

“Raided” is available now for download on iTunes, Bandcamp, and Beatport. The single is also available for streaming on Spotify.

Wonderland Magazine Premieres Music Video for Salt Ashes ‘Raided’

Salt Ashes - Wonderland Magazine PremiereWonderland Magazine has just premiered the music video for Salt Ashes’ new single, ‘Raided.’ You can pre-order ‘Raided’ on iTunes now, with the track being released worldwide tomorrow, March 10th, 2015 on Radikal Records.

Salt Ashes’ strain of pop music explores the darkness in disco, with its deep, cold electronics matched with the light, almost shimmering tones of Sanchez’s voice. With her debut single, ‘Somebody’, Sanchez was eager to convey a break-up with industrial synths, arpeggiators, yearning vocal and a rather erotic video.

Building on that ‘Raided’ has more complexity in its materials. The sparse, house-y verses take tips from minimal R&B, while the vocal sits firmly in the ethereal. Meanwhile, driving percussion is matched with pumps of electronics, wooshing pads and a chorus that catches you with first listen. With the video, Sanchez is exploring her dark side again. “I wanted to create something with a dark B-movie, late-night kind of vibe,” she says, “probably because I’d been watching a lot of Neo-noir, thriller movies at the time.” - Alim Kheraj (Wonderland Magazine)
