Mayra Andrade - Lovely Difficult - 2013

Cape Verde perfectly fulfills its bridge element between Africa, Europe and America. The opening to the sea; the idiomatic connection with the creators of bossa nova or tropicalism, and the ever-present presence of the forgotten continent as a reference of rhythms and nostalgia are the main strengths of Mayra Andrade's music.

Mayra Andrade represents miscegenation turned into a way of life: she was born in Cuba, daughter of Cape Verdean parents, grew up between Senegal, Angola, Germany and Cape Verde, and has lived in Paris since 2002.

In LovelyDifficult, his fourth album, Andrade is ready to leave behind the shadow of the worldmusic to get into fertile pop land with wide international views. The first proof of this comes from the hand of its opening to other languages, listening to it unfold in Portuguese, Cape Verdean, French and English.

Produced in Brighton, England, by Mike Pelanconi, the composition of the three cuts is the responsibility of Mayra herself who has the contributions of Pascal Danaë, Krystle Warren, MárioLúcio, YaëlNaïm, HughColtman, Tété and BenjaminBiolay, thus characterizing each of the pieces and providing them with a greater international aroma.

LovelyDifficult opens the heart of Mayra at various times, such as the appealing song "Weused to callitlove" or "96 days", which oozes melancholy under a jazz structure. It allows us to relive with her her Cape Verdean childhood in "Ilha de Santiago" (her eternal place of vacations) with joy and even summer self-confidence that also presents "Les motsd´amour"; the strange symbiosis between reggae and chanson, as present in this album, as the ballad "Le jour se lève". It builds bridges back and forth to Brazil in "Rosa" and "Trésmininu", to return to briefly rescue the sounds of sub-Saharan Africa in "Téralonji", ending with the beautiful ballad "Meu farol" (dedicated to his mother, Dina Stela) .

The opening to pop and the internationalization of sounds is clear and evident. Listening to his latest album take us to visit the places and common transits of his life and, perhaps, that yearning to grow beyond what one is, beyond the roots that bind a never forgotten past. In LovelyDifficult, Mayra Andrade draws a map of the world that runs from her native Cape Verde to European pop, getting what she calls "tropical pop".

Superstar Ace - Wassa Wassa

African fusion/hip-hop artist/producer Superstar Ace releases a new hit single, WassaWassa. This self produced track offers a great commercial-appeal sound with a fresh twist that fuses Hip Hop, Afrobeat and pop allowing the vocals to blend with different sonic elements. WassaWassa means naughty and Superstar Ace is set to take the African music industry to new heights with his latest Afrofuturism (African and Future) look and feel. The fun, sexy and young entertainer is a total enigma that blows people away with his style, music and everything that he does.

WassaWassa is a Single off Superstar Ace's upcoming debut project after the underground success of Summertime which featured Anatii. The album will offer self-produced tracks by Superstar Ace and it includes production collaborations with popular beat makers Shizzi, Tweezy amongst other producers.

The Nigerian born artist is not new to the music industry. He's been behind the mic since 2009. His first major performance was as an opening act at the Sound City Urban Music Blast Concert in Lagos opening for the now defunt JOZI hip hop group in Lagos, Nigeria. He then went on a 6-city tour in the UK opening for artists like Davido, Wande Coal, Sean Tizzle and Runtown in 2014. In 2017 he released a hit single, Summertime featuring Anatii.

Having worked on different music genres, from hip hop to Afrobeat as an artist and a producer, Superstar Ace sees the need to promote Pan-Africanism now more than ever. The African continent is speaking a different language in the music scene. There are more interconnections that are rising, thanks to social media breaking boundaries across the continent and taking music closer to the people, says Superstar Ace.

Borders don't confine Superstar Ace; he's traveled to 12 countries to learn and build his music craft from each experience. The all-round creative artist is a real entertainer who is ready to reignite his music career & take Africa by storm. He currently resides in Johannesburg & Lagos.

WASSA WASSA is available on iTunes/Apple Music/TIDAL/Spotify/Deezer/Amazon/Napster:
