Ayah Marar is dubbed “Queen Of Bass” in her native UK, and now it’s time for her to take the crown in the US. Ayah is in town for DJ Times’ DJ Expo going on next week and is scheduled to make some appearances there. Tuesday, August 13th Ayah is also scheduled to perform at the legendary House of Blues on Atlantic City’s Boardwalk. Ayah will then make her way up to NYC to perform at Club Finale in NYC.
Last month, Ayah Marar performed at a secret performance for Sofar Sounds in London, England. This particular video clip shows Ayah performing the hit Calvin Harris (which she is featured on) track “Thinking About You” with special guest Rami Rad. The usually bouncy electronic song is stripped down to just Ayah’s vocals and an acoustic guitar. A truly unique take on the track. Check out the video below.
The newest single “Thinking About You” from Calvin Harris featuring Ayah Marar holds onto the #9 spot on the UK iTunes charts this week. The single, which has just seen a video released, is expected to be released with special remixes on August 3rd. Ayah Marar’s debut album, The Real is also available in the US for purchase/streaming!

Ayah Marar’s The Real may not be out till tomorrow, but it’s not stopping the blogs from buzzing about it. Raw Tracks Music recently did a review about it, and they had a lot of good stuff to say. They speak about the “kaleidoscopic” tendencies the album has, which Raw Tracks Music says “ake inspiration from the underground dance scene, cherry-picking the very best elements of drum and bass, techno and house and bolting them onto well-crafted pop hooks that look set to shatter dance floors.” You can read the full review here or check it out below.
Well known amongst the electronic music community in the UK, Ayah’s dedication to her music has earned her the rightful title of “The Queen Of Bass.” Her debut album, ”The Real” has been attracting widespread attention and critical acclaim, with a recent Vibe Magazine interview, Music Week featuring her song “Alive” as Track Of The Week, and Ayah winning Best Female Artist in the 2013 Drum And Bass Awards. Ayah’s fan-base is strong and promises to continue growing with the US release of “The Real” due out on July 9th this year.
Dance music is a broad church, but within each parish there’s usually a set of rules. A doesn’t always go with B, and X shouldn’t really mix with Y, but sometimes those rules are meant to be broken or manipulated into odd new shapes. Ayah Marar’s kaleidoscopic debut album, “The Real,” is a case in point: thirteen songs that take inspiration from the underground dance scene, cherry-picking the very best elements of drum and bass, techno and house and bolting them onto well-crafted pop hooks that look set to shatter dance floors. “It’s an homage to dance music in whatever form, whether it’s garage or two step or house or drum and bass,” she explains.
With seemingly every other new pop star trying to marry a gargantuan dance beat to a pretty melody, it’s a competitive world. The difference here is that Ayah Marar isn’t faking it. She lives the life of an underground dance fiend, of a DJ and MC, of a strong woman in a male-dominated industry. Her two worlds, the underground and the mainstream, have been brought together organically, co-existing in a way that sounds fresh rather than forced. “I’m trying something that I don’t think has been done in the way we’re trying to do it,” Marar states. “It’s what I love to do; it’s trying to find that balance.”
Ayah Marar’s debut album The Real will be out tomorrow, but check it out now on our website! Click the artwork below to listen/purchase.

Last week, Ayah Marar reportingly killed it at the Innovation In The Sun festival in Barcelona. Drum and Bass authority, All Things Drum and Bass says that Ayah put a “fresh twist on a live set” and recalls it ended way too soon. The crowd photo, courtesy of Ayah’s instagram, is more than enough proof she had the crowd on their feet. All Things Drum And Bass apparently recorded the set and it’s meant to be online in the coming days. Check back for that soon!
