SHREM'S DOUBLE TROUBLE: "VIRTUAL LOVER" - Nadia Ksaiba [+ Jimmy Edgar Remix] /// "GUEST LIST" - DENA

London residing Tunisian electro princess praised by the likes of Erol Alkan and Berlin-based Bulgarian answer to M.I.A. surely had to end up in one dancefloor action packed post here, right?

Nadia Ksaiba's "Virtual Lover" is a sneak peek into the artist's upcoming debut album balancing somewhere between Disco Classics, Minimal Wave, Synth Pop, Downtown New York Punk Funk and those life-affirming early Madonna singles as we read on Nadia's Facebook page. The single's out now on Phantasy and it includes another smashing remix from the unstoppable Jimmy Edgar.

DENA's "Guest List" mixes dancehall rhythms, subtle Oriental samples, Eastern European kitsch and clever productional tricks with her signature, slightly annoying way of rapping. I wasn't a fan of her sensationally viral "Cash, Diamond Rings, Swimming Pools" I must admit but I dig this one more and more. Two girls to keep an eye on in the upocoming months big time.
