CHOON OF THE DAY: "STARS" - Roses Gabor
I have been utterly excited about this tune since the first time I heard this urban diva is about to release her first solo single. After collaborating with such a diverse bunch of musicians (Buraka Som Sistema's explosion of electro kuduro "We Stay Up All Night", SBTRKT's groovy "Pharaohs" or Greenmoney's "Into You" opening my top 40 of 2011, to name just a few) Roses Gabor is dropping her long anticipated "Stars" via Toddla T's Girls Music. As we read in the official press release "'Stars' is a song for clubs and night bus journeys alike- both contemplative and energetic. The atmospheric and emotive intro gives way to a rumbling bassline and off kilter drum programming. Roses voice is a perfect fit for the warm synths and moody beats which she shakes up with her feisty chopped up vocals." It's one of the most original singles I heard all year and accompanied by this charmingly kitschy video it surely secured a safe spot among my top tunes at the moment. This is as cool as it gets!!! And this lady is one to be watched carefully in the upcoming months.
