NEW RELEASE MARCH 17, 2009
“No Time” by AmesEla & Kwok is a hip dance song about living life to the fullest - right now! Because we’ve “got no time for wasting”.
A groovy song about seeing everyone for the beauty they are - whether fat, skinny, brown or yellow. So Beautiful was inspired by a small group of adventures whose camp was known as “No Where In Particular”. “Colored baubles dangling” contrast with experiences of a world traveled and the beauty of an unadulterated reality.
“So Beautiful” is an allegory of the sixth Chakra, said to govern our ability to see beyond the physical world through intuition. “Baridi sana Coca Cola man” meets “blue haired boy” who “wears no brand”, and in the end dances to “rumbled bongo baby beat”.
“...AmesEla providing silky smooth vocals over deep house beats, smooth synths, and string arrangements.... AmesEla’s vocal snippets adorn the track in all the right places giving this track a soulful feel... the Original mix which layers AmesEla’s vocals over snappy snares, old-school house organs, and a live bassline...For fans of Miguel Migs or Naked Music, this release is sure to find plenty of play-time in your crate.”
“...A bumpy groove with wicked keys and vocalist AmesEla who is blessing us with her talent. She’s giving the track that extra soulful edge.”
“...A sultry sophisticated vocal from AmesEla over a groovy and smooth instrumental. Sexy keys and a solid garage feel to the track will make it a choice for the vocal DJs...”
“I’m listening to your CD right now. It’s hot, Amy. Kinda jazzy, with that cool, sexy house sensability, and a really positive vibe; feel good, with cutting-edge hipness. And your voice sounds so pretty and ethereal. It invokes images of celtic godesses in misty groves, sleek sirens, singing by waterfalls, with hot gay backup dancers on the rocks above ... so good. I’m especially into your voices natural raspiness. So many women sound oh-so-affected, trying to hit that sound that comes naturally to you. It’s in my rotation, for sure!”
