Ayah Marar Ft. P Money – ‘Alive’
‘Alive’ is the fourth single off Ayah Marar’s debut album ‘The Real’. Championed by the likes of Q Magazine (four stars), Dazed Digital, Attitude, Mixmag, Timeout and The Sun who have labeled her the “dubstep queen”. This single is Ayah’s first foray back into dubstep after her ‘Follow U‘ release with Yogi on Ministry of Sound. Having been a fan of both Funtcase and P Money (a fellow south Londoner), this seemed the perfect time to bring them together. Big, bashy, dark and very unafraid, Ayah’s penchant for unusual collaborations means that her tracks span a variety of genres making them relevant to an even wider demographic and ‘Alive’ is no different. Ayah has been enjoying an incredible response to her Calvin Harris album track ‘Thinking About You’, which went to number 1 in the Hype Machine charts and is still one of the most blogged and tweeted about tracks of the album. Ayah and Calvin have been friends and collaborators for many years. Ayah has also enjoyed success from the three album tracks she wrote and performed for DJ Fresh’s album. 2012 has been a string of UK and international club and tour dates including her nationwide tour with Netsky.
2013 is going to be an incredible one for Ayah Marar. Between recording her second album, starting her own show on BBC Radio 1Xtra this month, playing gigs and festivals across the UK and Europe and collaborating with a number of new artists, she also finds time to run her own label Hussle Girl and she’ll be looking to find new talent and “help aspiring performers get stuck into the industry in the right way”.
