There are some artists you like, you follow their music, buy there albums/songs and you look out for news of their next release. Then there are artists who excite you, who you actively seek new music from rather than simply waiting for it, these artists bring something fresh and new to the table and are pushing the boundaries of ‘soul’ music. Dezaray Dawn is most definitely an artist that falls into that latter category.

I honestly cannot remember how I came across her name in the first place, however I remember following a link to her myspace page and being suitably impressed with the music on show. She effortlessly combines the classic with the bang up to date, to produce music that is original, yet comfortably familiar. Much like her contemporaries Brittany Bosco, Iman Williams, Zaki Ibrahim and Janelle Monae (where did she go?) her music is not easy to categorise, it combines elements of soul, electronica, hints of jazz …. basically a little bit of everything.

I have been anticipating the release of the Chameleon EP for a while now, and Dezaray has been keeping myself and fellow bloggers up to date with it’s progress. Well now it has finally arrived and I can definitely say it was worth the wait. The EP is relatively short at just under 20 minutes, however it is 20 minutes of some of the best ‘future soul’ you will hear this year!

Check out the remix of the title track below, then head on over to her myspace where you can here the other 4 tracks from the EP (‘Can’t Look Down’ is a personal favourite):

    I fell in love the second I pressed play. The sound is crazy and THEN she starts singing. I think 20 minutes would be torture. I might have to wait for the album.
