CHOON OF THE DAY: "TIME" - Sevdaliza

Sevdaliza, the enigmatic Future RNB/Electronic Soul chanteuse from Iran, treated her quickly expanding fanbase to a brand new single this week. "Time" is an indisputably masterful piece of music, every bit as unique and as impressive as "The Other Girl" without which the final of last year's Top 100 Greatest Tracks wouldn't have been the same... The song begins with a subtle, nostalgic piano intro and ends up with an explosive wall of electronic sounds. Everything in between is equally gripping from eerie synths, hand-claps, heavy basslines, that irresistible RNB-meets-Trip Hop atmosphere to Sevdaliza's breathy vocals. Phenomenal.
