Hello People...Big love to everyone who made it down to our return to The Star last Thurs...it was a total riot!!! Words cant express the madness that occurs in that room...other than it becomes possessed! Our 4th birthday is next month!!! 16th Sept @ The Star...cant wait.
We have some very exciting news...
drum roll pleeeeeeeeease.....
The one and only diva Mama has her muchly anticipated debut single finally here for your good ears!!
As we continue to take over the sound waves and tear up the system, we’re very proud to present Batty Bass 05. After sharing the stage on previous BB releases, #5 sees Mama where she well and truly belongs. Centre stage.
Following her own gigs and current tour with Bloc Party's Kele Okereke this is Mama's debut single, a track full of urban tension, dark seduction and knife edge sex appeal.
As well as her legendary stage shows at Batty Bass, Mama's previous projects have seen her take the stage at Bestival, Fabric and Glastonbury with an energy and performance inspired by the likes of Grace Jones and Talking Heads. Written and produced by herself, Mama brings all the intensity of the performance directly to the track.
Renegade is a bleakly futuristic song full of raw emotion and sensuality. Crystal sharp beats, and metallic synths lay an uneasy bed for mama's seductive coo's and subversive lament. A call to arms chorus with Mama's punchy delivery is backed by sparse claustrophobia. This is pop, but on Batty Bass's terms. Best sung a long to in the confines of a dark sweaty venue.
The legendary Berlin producer Jay Haze has done a blinding remix. Jay takes Mama to Berghain Garten. The darkness is still there but contrasted with sunshine keys, stuttering jazz percussion without losing anything of Mama's almost hypnotic vocal.
YOU CAN BUY IT HERE ON ITUNES!!
One love BB X
