Always Get Away (Astral22 Extended Mix) – LeNora Jaye

Watch Video : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dJCuCi9Pstc

Digital Worldwide Release

“Sweet, sassy, confrontational, intimate, doubtful, nervous, SEXY and playful… My favourite cut from LeNora Jaye’s “The Story”, the glorious house jam, “Always Get Away.” – Paul Cutting- DJ/Tastemaker/Reviewer – www.soulcuts.org

“PHENOMENAL artist … LeNora’s sound is definitely reminiscent of the days when Rufus w/ Chaka & Patrice Rushen were pushing out the soulful sounds” – DJ Shhh -DJ/Host (The S.T.O.R.M.) – www.blogtalkradio.com/storm2010

“One of the most ANTICIPATED in the past year … A great new soul singer with a fantastic soulful voice and great vocal range.” – Lawrence Prangell – www.soulbrother.com

“111 East Radio Network LOVES LeNora Jaye’s music !!!” – Baron Harris – CEO – (BLG Music Group USA) -www.blgmusicgroup.com

“Soulful and Sensitive …” DJ Soulswede www.soulinterviews.com

“Modern Black Music … Real Soul for Real People” – Jörg Michael Schmitt (Radio Host/Reviewer) – www.sonicsoulreviews.com

“Superb … Contemporary … definitely one of my Highlights”! – Mark Coddington – www.firstexperiencerecords.com

Elegant…playful….soulful…mischievous…lyrically intriguing all describe this scintillating foray into soulful house music. LeNora Jaye takes a walk on the dark side here, while Astral22 brings the soul & funk with a hard-hitting bassline groove, riding the 124BPM with fervor. Together LeNora Jaye & Astral22 create a striking & unforgettable movement with this soulful house vocal offering.

LeNora says:  ‘Always Get Away’ is unique for her, mostly known for tender & insightful love songs, this song presents another side – and a departure from the norm in its concept. It has a duality in which she offers sweet, deceptively sensual, teasing vocals with a hint of power & vocal prowess that invites the listener into a dark story of seduction and perhaps even danger? This delicious slice of soulful house continues to take listeners by suprise with its strident rhythms, intense groove and thought-provoking, controversial lyricism.

It’s Working Out – Bashiyra

Digital Worldwide Release – Available Now

Bashiyra and producer Astral22 team up for the first time on “It’s Working Out”.

Bashiyra says: ‘It’s Working Out’ is a special gem, autobiographical in its concept. It offers the listener as well as myself; INSPIRATION, GRATITUDE and continued DETERMINATION to EVOLVE as INDIVIDUALS in GRACE, PASSION and CREATIVITY that is deliciously limitless and boundless”.

Astral22 sees this collaboration as having a modern Motown feeling, a daily AFFIRMATION, that has a message of exercising faith and holding onto the feeling that everything IS working out! Bashiyra’s perfectly crafted melody, lyrics and delivery evoke an era of London Soul that is ripe for return.
