Words: Saam Das
Our belated tips for 2013 saw London solo artist YADi make her way into our top ten ones to watch for the rest of the year. To be honest, I'm a tad surprised she's not already more of name. But these things take time and with tracks like recent single 'The Blow' and this free download of 'Unbreakable', I'm still confident YADi has a bright future. She also plays The Great Escape this Saturday, and we heartily recommend checking out her live act.
This collab might seem to a bit out of the leftfield but Johan Hugo, producer on 'The Blow', also happens to be half of The Very Best. Who are pals with Baaba Maal. It's like that six degrees of Kevin Bacon thing. Sort of. Definitely minus the dubious television adverts. 'Unbreakable' certainly brings much more of a "world music" vibe than her more straight forward pop efforts but proves to be a pleasantly engaging surprise with its juxtaposition.
