Fifty Fifty, Passed

abrahamblue :

Based in Antwerp Belgium, abrahamblue grew up with an intricate love for music, which he cultivated over the years by listening to a broad spectrum of styles like the soundtrack of classic Arabic singers such as Fairuz, Abdel Halim Hafez or by dancing to Michael Jackson or by getting mesmerised by classics from Beethoven and Bach.

Later, Blue discovered Jazz, which opened a whole new world for him. Add to this pallet his love and appreciation for 90’s hiphop, classic soul and even gospel music and you’ll understand his eclectic identity. Blue experimented with singing and finding his own melodie groove, making his first steps to become a vocalist. With just a freestyle he managed to score a ‘Most promising Artist Of The Year’ at the Redbull Elektropedia Awards. More interested in studying music than releasing quick tracks, Abraham evolved towards producing and songwriting. This patient journey of self-study manifested in his much anticipated EP debut ‘Tracks I Made Last Summer’. His debut EP got support from BBC1, was catch of the day at Studio Brussels and made it to the Colors blog.

November Ultra :

Singer and songwriter of the band Agua Roja, with whom she released two EPs from which the tracks “Summer ends”, “Be alone”, “Lord” are taken, November Ultra is often recognized for her deep and soothing voice. The band split in 2018,  November then evolved into November Ultra and began to explore solo. At the same time, she works for and with other artists as a topline artist/songwriter (Jaden Smith, Claire Laffut, Terrenoire, Kungs, Anna Majidson, Barbara Pravi, Ali-
cia…) and makes her first album in her corner, album that she decides in great part to make alone by learning to record and to produce on the software Ableton.

 

The result: 11 songs as a journey through the musical spectrum of the Spanish-French woman steeped in folk, Spanish copla, r&b, and 60s musicals. She produced three Secret Tapes, reworks of Radiohead or Sufjan Stevens, which she posted on Instagram and Youtube in order to familiarise people with the sounds of her music and her future album. These first two singles, the DIY rocker “soft&tender,” and the bittersweet “honey”, represent a taste of her music : comforting, intimate and incredibly cinematic.
