Today sees the release of two brand new tracks by MIX ‘N BLEND. This latest 2-track release features two incredible vocalists, blues artist Sannie Fox on Rebel Gun, and maloya singer Yaelle Trules from la Reunion on Mercy. Stepping out of their usual comfort zones whilst creating the music, both came up with something unique, special, blending their own styles and sounds with flavours not familiar to them.
First up, Sannie Fox blends her trademark dreamy blues vocals over dark, deep and melodic dub rhythms on Rebel Gun – something unusual for her, but a mixture producing great results.
Yaelle on the flip side of the release, hailing from la Reunion Island, sings her verses in Creole and brings her unique flavour to the collaboration. The song, Mercy, was born in la Reunion on one of Mix ‘n Blend‘s previous trips to the Island. Seeing her perform at Sakifo Festival, they knew immediately that they had to make music with her. A classic horn line composed by the bands brass maestros Lee Thomson and Ross McDonald rounds out this hooky affair.
These two tracks are released through the record label Ngomso – a boutique label looking towards the future, created by Mix ‘n Blend, allowing for the easy release of their own music and other artists whose music they admire, as and when they create it.
Both tracks will be available for purchase within the next week on iTunes, Beatport, Amazon, 7 Digital, Juno Download, eMusic, and more.
