Wah Wah 45s are proud to present the second single from a lady who's been causing quite a stir in 2013, the powerhouse vocalist and lyricist that is Lea Lea. Following on from her first single released on Wah Wah 45s, "Black Or White", and in anticipation of her eponymous debut due in September, Lea Lea unleashes her new single, "Apartheid", which comes with a host of remixes from some of contemporary dance music's most interesting and exciting producers.
Having wowed audiences in London with uncompromising live show, and recently worked with Hospital Records artist Other Echoes on his forthcoming LP, this young lady has had a very busy year so far. Her sassy style has drawn comparisons to Missy Elliot, MIA, Kelis and Grace Jones, but Lea Lea's is really a one-off – at once alluring, charming and commanding. Writing songs that encourage dialogue and challenge female stereotypes, whilst being thoroughly entertaining, Lea Lea thrives on the darker side of music yet delivers her songs with an infectious warmth.
Her second single for Wah Wah 45s speaks for itself, questioning prejudices that are still prevalent across the globe, and is underpinned with sparse yet foot friendly beats and bone crunching bass from Bonobo drummer and producer Jack Baker.
Remixes come courtesy of three of the UK's finest producers: the bass loving Is Tropical, Rinse FM's Funk Butcher and the brilliant Noisses who deliver a trio of very tasty, straight up club mixes.
Modern in style, dramatic in production – Lea Lea is the new queen of dark electronic soul.
