niyi.


niyi is part of the same london-based clique as m.i.a, his club nights started the whole 'new rave' phenomenon and his best friend runs cassette playa, so i guess it's clear that we're dealing with a true underground innovator right here.

i immediately got all hooked on 'amelia', a super-catchy funky house track, bringing back memories of classics like 'i luv u baby' by the original because of the great piano chords. easily my favorite track these days, so glad to hear something completely different and timeless as this!

niyi - amelia

niyi has an album scheduled for early 2009 and his new single is available on itunes. head to hus myspace to show him some love and to get ahold of remix packages and more tunes! even more niyi can be found over at our friends from palms out and the fader.

im actually really liking the new trend of bad singing..i just wish they would add bad production to it as well to complete it but still good tho.

This is shit, stop believing every bit of hype please.

hype? where's the niyi hype? didn't see any so far. (and definitely didn't see any at all when i first heard the track.)

just shut the fuck up if you don't like something and move along. i don't need negativity like this on here.
