London-based vocalist Basheba says that her love of music stems from the passion that the people of Barbados (her mother’s country of origin) have for music.
Given the sun-drenched, optimistic production from TWD on ‘High ‘N’ Dry’, she certainly seems to have a point.
An unabashed lover of drum & bass, Basheba opts for a classic breakbeat on this one with a few elements of Jungle thrown in, letting her unmistakably British accent shine through.
The track, taken from Basheba’s ‘Bad Friends, Good Enemies’ EP, has also now been blessed with a stylish new video thanks to co-directors Jon Emmony & Luke Nugent.
If you think back to summer 2010, your thoughts will most likely be soundtracked by DJ Fresh’s ‘Gold Dust’, a radio-friendly drum & bass cut with a great vocal. This time around, it may just be the turn of Basheba.
