Powered by indie label 3 Shots Productions and remixed by Franky G, Eluozo shows us all his hard work is paying off handsomely with a hot summer track to groove happily with (feat. Rapping Kat) on the new tropical love single which is ‘One In a Million’ (Remix).
Francis Eluozo aka Eluozo, is a supremely motivated and very inspiring RnB solo artist, music producer, and flourishing entrepreneur from Nigeria. He is a passionate creative who genuinely wants to see growth from others, as he performs with a caring edge that most do not possess and wish they had in their locker.
”A good start is no guarantee for a good finish, but start good regardless, good is always good.” ~ Eluozo
He sings with such a confident essence, that smells so beautifully warm and has the scary world feeling rather peaceful again. You feel so relaxed in your all-knowing stomach – as you refuse to let go of that sweet love who you treasure so much – even if you can’t be together right now.
‘One In a Million‘ (Remix) from the multi-talented Nigerian music producer, keyboard player and solo RnB artist Eluozo, is that Afro-Beats fused single that has you believing in romance again.

The vocals shine after the cloudy skies and you find some peace on this freedom-finding new track, that is best played loud and with those loved ones.

For her latest release Bruneian singer-songwriter and producer Aisyah reworked her absorbing contemporary RnB pop track, ‘Slow Down’; in doing so, she ironically made us fall even more in love with the single.
The original release was a stunning feat of RnB pop which showcased Aisyah’s harmonic vocals against Pisces Kid’s irresistibly smooth vocal timbre as the two vocalists contended with romantic hesitancy. The remix introduces female vocalist, Zalelo, who acts as the proverbial devil on the shoulder, leading the narrative into one which mimics the conflict that is often fought when making romantic decisions.
While many artists use their tracks to boast how head over heels in love they are, Aisyah takes a more meditative approach to affection. Her hesitancy draws realism into the release but it never detracts from the affection.
It’s a stunning track that has left us assured that big things await Aisyah as she takes a step back from the film music industry, where she worked for Netflix, Marvel and Disney and became the first Bruneian to break into the American film industry.
Slow Down (Remix) officially released on April 30th. You will be able to check it out for yourselves via Spotify.
Hitting play on Eiffel 65’s 1999 cult hit ‘I’m Blue’ is a sure-fire way to get a sweetly potent shot of serotonin. That also goes for Netherlands-based artist and producer Artuga’s rework ‘Blue (Da Ba Dee)’.
20 years have passed since the original, that’s reflected in the artist’s mix which extracts the 90s pop elements and replaces them with harsh trancey layers which lacerate the iconic soundscape with lashings of reverberant biting bass. With plenty more reverb on the higher-energy vocals, there’s little separation between the vocals and the surrealist escapism-aiding beats which tear you away from reality and throw you into the reality of the blue alien we fell in love with when MTV still played music.
Artuga’s remix of Blue is now available to stream via Spotify.
Alex Kreid is a 90’s head and he was so inspired during these wild lock down times to remix ‘Mysterious Times‘ as it perfectly projects how the whole world is feeling right now.
This track was originally released in 1998 by Sash! (ft. Tina Cousins) and this is probably one of the best dance songs of its generation. The fitting ode to this classic is a wonderful addition to a strange year that has in some ways, forced musicians to re-look at the way they do things, in order to make sure that they can remain productive while venues are mostly bolted shut.
The earthy atmospheric start catches the mood of the year as the build lifts and lifts gradually as the vocals become even more spooky than before. This is a remix that has been recreated to fit our current times, which is a welcome sound as most covers try and copy the original completely.
His vocals transforms the speakers and you sit back and try to soak up what is currently going on outside. With some countries doing great with the pandemic and others poorly, you realize that we have to stay strong and re-invent ourselves in order to survive.
‘Mysterious Times‘ from Bristol based singer-songwriter Alex Kreid is a reboot of the classic 90’s song and this is a fitting tribute to this wonderful tune that has been re-imagined with such skill and quality, to make us all tip the cap and appreciate a quality dance track.
