Ruth Koleva - Rhythm Slave (CD)

Hot on the heels of a critically acclaimed debut album, Ruth Koleva presents a collection of remixes by some of the most respected names in contemporary dance music. The Bulgarian artist, still only 25, has become a national treasure, sharing the stage with legends including imperious jazz vocalist Bobby McFerrin, mentoring on popular talent show Music Academy and performing a sold-out concert to more than 1,300 guests at Bulgaria Hall with the Sofia Philharmonic Orchestra. As a vocalist and songwriter she excels in all things soul and nu-classic R&B - think Erykah Badu and Jill Scott - but as a music fan her tastes extend much further. She has always kept an ear to the ground when it comes to club culture and the roster of producer remixers on Rhythm Slave confirms that. In addition to stellar remixes from producers as varied as Eric Lau (Lupe Fiasco, Tawiah) to Mark de Clive Lowe (Sy Smith), fans can also enjoy two original tracks recorded especially for this album: 'Tuk s Teb', a feisty crowd pleaser, and 'Breaktaking Moment', a supercharged number that fuses drum and bass with strands of EDM, once again demonstrating the singer's versatility. Koleva's second album promises to be an even more intimate and affecting set as she heads into the studio in LA with producer Crooked Waters (Kan Wakan).
