DescriptionThis soulful disco-influenced jam is the result of a recent collab between Sweden-based Canadian vocalist Amalia aka Miz Fuze, known for her work with Opolopo, Sekoya and Atjazz, along with producer Koyla (Nikolay Serebryakov), one of Russias most promising jazz artists. A lush, melodic vocal by Amalia dances over a rhythmic nu-jazz musical bed that hits it with a thick bassline, brilliant chord changes and glossy string arrangements, including background vocals by Tim Fuller. This track is cookin, on many disco and funk levels. Remix by Montreals Miguel Graca has a thick retro funk vibe, while the Osaze & Awaaz cut delivers a full body bumpin dubbed out afro late night groove.
One of Russias finest emerging artists, Koyla is a multi-talented musician currently breaking ground across the realms of jazz-fusion, disco, house and techno. Recent projects include his latest release, Promised Land, a soulful house classic also on Bombay. His forays into minimal techno include performing and composing with his original live techno band, Derknob, and collaborations with DJ Primat and Right2Dance. On the jazz-fusion front, his band Fun 2 Mass is one of St. Petersburgs most widely-acclaimed live acts, playing across Europe with groups such as Incognito and Brand New Heavies. Vastly gifted and making a serious mark across several musical genres, Koyla is a name you will soon become familiar with.
