Jade Moss mixes it up with new Dance Remixes of ‘Hey Babe’

Emily Lindsell

Following on from the great success of her recent track Hey Babe, which was broadcast on multiple radio stations across the UK (including on BBC and Jazz FM), Jade Moss is preparing to release two brand new remixes of the track!

The genre-bending tune, which was released in January 2021, has all the aspects to perfectly satisfy a music lover’s taste. Jade focuses her music with a message of self love and positivity, with her lyrics reflecting her values of self-worth. Hey Babe highlights how she feels about the different themes (self-worth in particular) as she tells a story of a partner who objectifies her and doesn’t treat her with the respect she deserves. The morals of the song are greatly beneficial to today’s society, as we enter a time where women aren’t always respected and treated equally. Hey Babe delivers the perfect message that young women across the world need to hear right now – don’t let anyone else define your worth and undermine you.

The two remixes bring an all new twist to the track’s usual Jazz-pop sound, adding an extra layer of excitement to an already addictive track. Jade’s vocals compliment the new sounds well; with a voice so unique it’s refreshing to hear the different versions of the track, as both Tazeko and Steff Garner’s remixes bend the song in their own unique way. Listening through each track it almost feels as though you’re listening to a new song every time, something which you’ll be grateful for after learning Jade’s discography only consists of two singles at this moment in time (with further releases nearing in the future).

You can listen to the remixes for yourself on the 23rd of April, but for now enjoy the original just the way it is here.

Highly anticipated Fjokra EP ‘Thoughtsteps’ arrives June 9th

Versatile Irish songwriter looks to build on a growing reputation with brand new release

Influenced by a list of genres and artists taking in classical, metal, funk, jazz and more, Fjokra is an artist who is nigh on impossible to pigeonhole.

Born in Dublin and now living in London, he is a multi-instrumentalist whose music takes in so many different ideas and angles that to tie him down to one genre or style is a fool’s errand – just as it seems you have his sound sussed, a new idea will come and slap you in the face. And that’s just the way Fjokra likes it.

You can see the video for EP track ‘Infinite Loops’ here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P5FrW1UyVyY

‘Thoughtsteps’ is an EP that tantalises and astounds. With the album name, artwork and musical content designed to demonstrate alternative, free and independent forms of thinking, the varied style is all tied together by the consistent high quality of the recordings. Even more impressively, the EP is primarily self-produced but for one track from producer Donald Clark (Guns ‘n’ Roses, Muse).

It’s little wonder that Fjokra counts Mick Jones (The Clash), Duran Duran, and Beardyman amongst his fans – and this range of musicians gives you a glimpse into the wide audience demographics the music is connecting with. Peanut Baines of the Kaiser Chiefs put it his own way, labelling Fjokra ‘sex music for metallers’.

With a fan base that is widening thanks to a unique live show (performed with his eponymous band), Fjokra has already graced the stage at Beach Break Festival and Liverpool Sound City. They also performed at a very special concert which saw Tyondai Braxton (of Battles) premiere his new orchestral piece ‘Central Market’ – a truly inspiring experience for the band. And now, with ‘Thoughtsteps’ only a few weeks away and a slot at the Isle of Wight Festival this summer, he is using that inspiration to fuel his forward momentum.

And if you’re still not convinced that this is an artist with a unique approach, then perhaps his unusual approach to promoting the EP will help. In addition to releasing the songs and music videos, Fjokra has also recorded for each track a cookery show, punning on the song titles from the EP. Due to be posted on YouTube and fjokra.com shortly after the songs themselves are released, the tasty teasers will make this EP a truly multi-sensory experience.

Also, keep your eyes peeled for acoustic versions of the EP tracks, recorded in a guitar shop and due on the Fjokra YouTube channel soon.

‘Thoughtsteps’ will be available from June 9th.
