Emotions: Saucy Lady
Saucy Lady aka “The Beantown Disco Queen” has an exotic background: originally from Japan with a bi-cultural background, she’s now based in Boston and has been making waves on the disco club scene for a couple of years. ‘Emotions’ is a frisky, classic-sounding disco track that runs along at an unrelenting pace. Despite the speed, which will force even the most leaden-footed clubgoer to shake a leg, the track’s chorus is sensual, adding a touch of emotion (funnily enough) to what would otherwise have been a song too hectic, too frenzied and, in the end, too tiring.
La Costa: Sheila Ford
Sheila Ford is a singer, songwriter, producer and performerBaltimore from Baltimore. Recently she’s added Djing to her repertoire of musical talents. On ‘La Costa’ she’s struck a note that hovers somewhere between soul music, club music and a hint of latin sass. The whole point of it is to uplift and this is reflected in the lyrics when Ford sings ‘You are my love, you’re my light, you’re my everything’. There’s also a strong sense of abandon provided by a chorus that doesn’t have words so much as it does scat improvisations and nonsense syllables.
Ed Sheeran: Shape Of You
Twenty-five year Sheeran may be known for his unbounded pop hits but “Shape of You” hits another side of the dancefloor pulling in influences from tropical house and dancehall. Full of vocal acrobatics, and Ed’s signature rootsy guitar riff, this addictive little number is guaranteed a long shelf life and a sure-fire addition to his string of global hits. Straight in at Number 1 across the pond, and the debut single from his forthcoming album ‘Divide’, we are pretty sure it will reach the same spot in the UK. One thing is for sure, Mi-Soul will be pumping this beauty for a while to come.
