Salt Ashes’ Moodboard on Planet Notion

PlanetNotion

The good folks at Planet Notion fell in love with Salt Ashes’ debut single “Somebody,” and decided to reach out to find out more about Mrs Ashes and what inspires her. Here are 10 things Salt Ashes is obsessed with:

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.”

Notable Dance Picks Salt Ashes As Song Of The Day

Notable Dance

Shout out to our friends at Notable Dance whom picked Salt Ashes’ “Somebody” as their track of the day! Here’s what DJ Ron Slomowicz had to say about the single:

“Imagine Kate Bush doing a dark synth-pop cover of Depeche Mode’s “Black Celebration,” and you have the initial buzz single of Veiga Sanchez (a/k/a Salt Ashes). For the “official” debut comes “Somebody,” a slick-yet-moody downtempo electronic record with the feel of a New Order side project – maybe Revenge or Electronic. The comparisons to Kate Bush are obvious, but there’s a hint of a Natalia Kills noir in there that gives it an even darker, angelic vibe. While not exactly club-ready, the Cruelty remix adds a new beat with a kind of RAC-meets-DFA vibe. With her unique and ethereal (yet powerful) voice, I imagine that there will be some strong DJ/Producer collabs coming soon.”

Obsessed with Giorgio Moroder’s blend of disco and epic dark atmospheres, Salt Ashes first sprang to attention with her cover of Depeche Mode’s “Black Celebration.” Salt Ashes, aka 22 year old Veiga Sanchez, has spent the past year honing her own songs in the studio, creating her signature electronic grooves, and drawing influence from artists as diverse as Madonna, Kate Bush, Daft Punk and MIA.

On her single “Somebody,” available in early 2014, Salt Ashes brings to life the imaginings of Kate Bush dancing in a haunted Studio 54 to electronic pulsing grooves and lyrical escapism “Somebody take me… away.” “Somebody” is complemented by the B-side “Kiss A Little Dove,” a jewel of a track with fragmented, brooding vocals. The package is tied up with UK Dj/Producer Cruelty’s soulful, slick italo-disco remix of the original “Somebody.”

“Somebody” is just the first taste of this young talent, Salt Ashes, who will be releasing her first full length album sometime in 2014.
