Meleka releases "Go" single 19th October 2009
Meleka is the UK's brightest and hottest new talent. Armed with one of the biggest dance floor records of the year, her debut single "Go" is currently causing a storm across radio waves and club land throughout the UK and Europe and is set to be a massive hit when its released in Autumn.
Hailing from north-west London singer / songwriter Meleka, 21, was crowned HUGO URBAN RULES winner in 2008 after wowing music industry execs as well as chart toppers Estelle and Sabrina Washington.
It was Meleka's soaring vocals, self-penned songs and fearless nature that made her the firm favourite for the grand prize at the prestigious urban talent event. "I couldn't believe Sabrina and Estelle wanted me to share the same stage as them. It was such a privilege," Meleka modestly admits.
As well as winning the chance to support Estelle at HUGO URBAN RULES headline gig in Manchester Meleka also appeared in the subsequent MTV Base show which was broadcast over 100 times on the channel!!
Meleka has continued to make moves and will be featured alongside Kelis and Chipmunk on the title track of Basement Jaxx new album 'Scars'.
She has also recorded a feature on Don E's new single "Time Is Now" alongside Mutya Buena and has been tipped as one to watch.
This year will see a life long dream of Meleka's become a reality with the release of her debut single, the funky house anthem "Go" produced by the Crazy Cousinz.
We don't use the term anthem lightly either, the track has already had almost 1 million views on Youtube from fans radio rips alone and 300,000 plays on Myspace.
It has been on the A List @ BBC 1xtra since the beginning of April and has been receiving plays from Galaxy Network, Kiss FM, and Choice FM all without being serviced to radio. Once serviced, Choice FM playlisted the track immediately.
"Go" was also recently picked as Urban Record Of The Month by Mixmag.
Watch "Go" video:
The video for "Go" was directed by Ben Jones who started directing three years ago and was recently signed to Partizan films. He is now represented by Davey Inc and previous work includes projects for The Streets, Lily Allen, Oasis and Example.
Once you hear Meleka's fresh, irresistible vocals and her passionate song writing ability you'll understand why others are referring to her as the next big thing to come out of the UK, with talent enough to hold her own on the world stage.
