If you missed it last night, Phil Taggart over at BBC1 Radio featured Salt Ashes‘ follow-up single “If You Let Me Go” on his evening radio show after discovering the song via a fan on Twitter. You can stream the live broadcast on their website here. Here’s what Phil had to say when presenting the record: “Apparently that track was made by sleeping on floors in New York, Ibiza and Berlin. If that’s the quality of a track sleeping on people’s floors, imagine if she had a week in the studio…bit of Kate Bush in there…loving it!’”
Hear what all of the excitement about by streaming the single below, and purchasing it on iTunes today!
Emerging singer Salt Ashes, aka 22 year old Veiga Sanchez, will release her second single ‘If You Let Me Go’ September 2nd. Written and produced while sleeping on floors between Ibiza, New York and Berlin, it takes in her love for epic electronic grooves and melancholy drenched melodies with a nod to early eighties Madonna and the New York club scene. Obsessed with Giorgio Moroder’s blend of disco and epic dark atmospheres, the Brighton based songstress first sprang to attention with her inspired cover of Depeche Mode’s ‘Black Celebration’. In March this year she released her debut single ‘Somebody’, an elegant synth pop excursion that received rave reviews and created a real buzz about this super talented newcomer.
This summer Salt Ashes played some key festivals including The Great Escape and Glastonbury and she’s gearing up for shows in London and Brighton in September, to be announced!
As the follow up to her nu-disco release “Somebody,” Salt Ashes is gearing up to release her second debut single “If You Let Me Go,” which is currently being played exclusively on Gaydio.com and we are very happy to announce that the song was brought up to B rotation , along side Above & Beyond, Mapei, Nero, Klangkarussell, and more! Look out for a release day for “If You Let Me Go” and check out the music video for “Somebody” below!
Salt Ashes “Somebody” (Satin Jackets Remix) has been featured on DancingAstronaut.com! Here’s what they had to say:
“German duo Tim Bernhardt and Den Ishu join the Dancing Astronaut airwaves as Satin Jackets, the indie dance stand outs responsible for a wide array of original hits and sterling remix outputs since their inception. On their contribution to The Radar, the pair piece together 12 tracks of early morning music, kicking things off on a mellow note with Bogdan Irkuk remix of “Lullaby for Robert” by Al Usher before unveiling a remix of the silky smooth “Never Without You,” from the hands of Domestic Technology. Things pick up a bit as the mix moves through an interesting array of cuts courtesy of Darius, Heion, Les Loups, Oxford and more, including the Jackets own remix of Salt Ashes “Somebody.” Combining tasty French touch, filter cut white noise, and sugar-coated synthwork, the duo delivers effortlessly in the lower BPM range, leaving behind a lush and relaxing hour of disco and indie dance offerings — fused with a touch of tropical sunrises.”

Our friends at Dancing Astronaut featured and reviewed Satin Jackets’ nu-disco remix of Salt Ashes’ debut single “Somebody.” Read what they had to say below:
The brainchild of German production talent Tim Bernhardt and his friend Den Ishu, Satin Jackets have established themselves as tentpoles in the indie dance discussion. Furthering their influence in the lower BPM range, their latest groove-driven output comes in remix form, this time reworking Salt Ashes “Somebody.” The debut single from 22-year old Veiga Sanchez, “Somebody” is defined by the Brit songbird’s evocative wails, vocals that are effortlessly juxtaposed by The Jackets lush padwork and tinsel-coated piano rolls. A summer sunset in sonic form, Satin Jackets once again deliver on their now patented indietronic tendencies.
