MTV Iggy Discusses Pop Artist Salt Ashes’ Latest Single, “If You Let Me Go”

Salt Ashes- MTV Iggy MTV Iggy covers pop artist Salt Ashes’ latest single, “If You Let Me Go” and here’s what they had to say:

“Salt Ashes wants to dominate the dance floor — provided, that is, that everyone at the club is clad in black. Sure, she might be a material girl at heart (aren’t we all?) but the Brighton, England-based singer (née Veiga Sanchez) is out to provide an arty alternative to the Technicolor tunes of Madonna and her spandex-clad followers. “

“Last Call” by The Bello Boys feat. Kat DeLuna Featured on Muumuse.com

Kat DeLuna Bello Boys Last Call Muumuse.com

“Last Call” by Kat DeLuna & Bello Boys has been featured on Muumuse.com!  Here’s a bit of what they had to say:

Kathleen “Kat” Emperatriz DeLuna, Kween of Klubs, literally does not know how to turn down. Turn down forWHAT? That’s what Kat would probably say. She doesn’t know the answer to that. Why? Because it’s still PARTY O’CLOCK.

Not since blessing us with her $150,000 dress-borrowing visual for “Wanna See U Dance” back in 2012 has Kat spiced up the pages of MuuMuse — but that DeLuna Dry Spell mercifully ends now.

Belgium’s favorite dance floor diva returns this month as a featured chanteuse on “Last Call,” a Latin-infused summer jam by NY/NJ-bred act, Bello Boys. (And yes, that is the very real and actual single art above, serving you Baby’s First 1994 MS Paint PC project realness. Could your faves?)

As is always the case in Kat’s world, the party is on the dance floor, and it’s time to turn the music up, pour up the drinks, get those hands up in the air and TURN THE FUCK UP: “Turn it up, don’t stop, live it up/No, this town ain’t big enough!” Kat declares above the sizzling House beats and sassy accordion sound. The vocal mix sort of makes it sound like she’s singing underwater, but it’s fine — IT’S A DELUNA BANGA!”

Madame Freak’s “Ride It (Simone Bresciani Remix)” has been featured on JamSpreader.com! Here’s what they had to say:

“Let your freak flag fly with Madame Freak‘s new track, “Ride It (Simone Bresciani Remix)” via Radikal Records! The electro-house tune is blended to perfection with Freak’s jazzy, soulful voice, and will have you on your feet in no time. Madame Freak, AKA Jessi Teich, is an award-winning songwriter and Berklee grad, and certainly proved her worth with the song’s simplistic, but undeniably catchy chorus of the easy-to-remember: “do do do do do do do…” Oh, and did we mention that there’s an accordion involved? Check out the track for yourself below and try not to dance, we dare you!”

FreshNewTracks Salt Ashes Somebody Cruelty Remix

Sending over a big thank you to our friends over at FreshNewTracks.com for featuring Salt Ashes “Somebody (Cruelty Remix)!” Here’s  what they had to say:

“Last week I featured Satin Jackets’ latest remix of Salt Ashes’ “Somebody,” a nu-disco rendition of the synth-pop record, well this week having that tune on repeat on my SoundCloud, I couldn’t help but love the Cruelty remix  of “Somebody” as well, which adds a funky touch to the original. I know I’m a month late with this one, but this track is by far underrated, and with the current exposure “Somebody” is getting, there’s no doubt this record deserves a revisit and a feature! This is a must listen and a must download!”

Salt Ashes Interviews With Hot Band Girls

HotBandGirls

HotBandGirls had a chance to catch up with Salt Ashes to discuss her sexy music video for her latest release “Somebody,” the inspiration behind her song, and the challenges that come with being a women in the music industry. You can read an excerpt of the interview below, and read the full article here. Make sure you purchase “Somebody” on iTunes today!

-You have just started out in the music scene as Salt Ashes, what is the message you want to convey to the world as an artist?
Right now, I am just sharing pieces of my mind and heart little by little for listeners to take what they want from it. If my music brings any kind of strong emotion out in somebody then I am always winning.

-Did you face any challenges when writing your latest single, “Somebody”?
This was actually one of those ones that came out in an evening…. I did some fine tuning later but the best part of it flew out of me pretty quickly. This definitely doesn’t happen all the time though, that would be a dream. Usually my best writing happens fast for some reason which is annoying when you’ve spent ages pouring blood and tears into a song and then it’s not good at all.

-How did you come up with the concept behind your video to “Somebody”?
I always had the idea of two bare bodies up close and personal, expressing their angst, passion and hate all at the same time. That’s essentially the essence of the song; Strong, erratic feelings. …  I wanted to portray intensity and there’s nothing better than stripping everything down to its purity and getting intense.

1. Capes/hoods

“I love anything with a cape ,   I love pulling my hood up and hiding , I like looking Sinister and mysterious in a nice black cape”

2. Liquorice

“It’s like eating treacle and latex , it smells amazing and cures everything, I eat it everyday and can’t live without it.”

3. Book: 1984 by George Orwell

“I just re-read this recently , such an amazing story, my songs are often about betrayal and the hiding of feelings or escape,  I love visions of the future. Or in this case the future past.”

4. Ableton Controller

“We love using Ableton live to run all our tracks , it’s an amazing and instinctive programme and I love the new controller, it looks like a disco when it’s all lit up.”

5. Big chunky Silver Skeleton themed jewellry

“I love oversized jewellry and I’m really into bones and strange skulls and chunky designs.”

6. Music: Daniel Avery Drone Logic

“An amazing forward thinking dance record, it has such wonderful textures and bass sounds. He’s a master of swell and build and the whole record is so musical. Love it.”

7. Drive Soundtrack and Movie

“I love the mood and Visual tone of the movie , the nocturnal widescreen feel and futuristic city vibes and the soundtrack really locks it down it’s a masterpiece.”

8. Studio54

“If there’s one place I wish I had visited it’s the famed disco inferno that was Studio 54, the music the glamour and seedy nature of the place, I try to imagine it and put that excitement into my own music.”

9. Bass Players – Bootsy Collins

“I love bass lines and I love Bass players , I love the funk.”

10. Really amazing High Heels

“Life without great shoes would not be worth living , I like the way they make me feel and I like to dance and fall over on stage in them.”
