Genre-bending Musician Celebrates iTunes Exclusive Release Of Instrumental Album With New Single
The eclectically talented Georgia Anne Muldrow will be releasing her latest project, VWETO – the album title means "gravity" in Swahili – exclusively on iTunes today with the worldwide release, both physical and digital, to follow on January 25, 2011. The album is a tour-de-force when it comes to musical exploration taking on influences from "Fonkrock" and Hip-Hop and runs the gambit all the way down to Piano Space. Innovative and avant-garde, Muldrow's new album is a breath of fresh air as the songstress and producer continues to push musical boundaries.
To accompany the digital release of the instrumental project, Georgia Anne Muldrow is releasing her first single from the album. "fOnkRocker" goes in hard as the music mimics the tracks title by giving off a heavy dose of funked up base lines accompanied by a fierce Rock 'N' Roll vibe. The melodic track incorporates rolling beats – beats fit for both swank underground lounges and clubs. The track embodies the essence of what this West Coast artist has become so successful at: meshing together styles and creating a sound that is fresh and transcendent among any genre.
Georgia Anne Muldrow's VWETO is available now on iTunes via Mello Music Group.
Described by one industry tastemaker as “an edgier Taio Cruz with a similar vocal presence to John Legend”, Chrome has been winning plaudits across the world since his two UK Number 1 features with Dizzee Rascal in 2008 and 2009 (Dance Wiv Me and Holiday). His vocal contributions helped Dizzee achieve his first and third UK Number 1s, be nominated for a MOBO, achieve platinum and gold plaques in several countries and grow into the pop megastar he is today.
Chrome is now embarking on his own pursuit of chart success with his debut album being released in 2011.
Collaborating with the likes of Cause An Effect (Migraine Skank/Streetdance 3D soundtrack) and Wideboys (myspace.com/wideboysmusic) amongst other major stars that he's held close to his chest, the album looks set to help Chrome pick up where he left off, at the top.
Ooh Now Baby is the first single from Chrome's forthcoming album.
