Fresh Friday's

Shuanise Odunaiya is the latest artist to join the ranks of Floating Points & Alexander Nut new imprint Eglo!

This week's new talent is Shaunise, who is not really new talent but still kind of breaking the waves I guess.....With influences including Ella Fitzgerald, Omar, Fela Kuti, Pharcyde, Sister Nancy, Zap mama, Peter Tosh and Roy Ayers, her music is bound to ring PENG in your earholes!!!!

Dallas born but raised in North London, the lady is something of an enigma. She was introduced to playing percussion at an early age. Around the same time she started to use her voice as a way of expression. From freestyling with the local hoodrats to weekly jams on the grand piano with the old guy up the road, Shuanise started to make sense of it all. Her music is a spellbinding combination of soul, hip hop, gospel and spiritual jazz. She's a true UK star with bright future. - Sounds of the Universe
