VIDEO: Ibeyi 'Oya'

Ibeyi's video for 'Oya' is simply stunning.  The clip was directed by Scanlab Projects, and features black and white footage of a forest, with shots overlapping.  This effect gives the feeling of double exposure in photographs, and perfectly suits the haunting and ominous song.  Ibeyi is a French/Cuban duo consisting of sisters Lisa-Kaindé and Naomi Diaz, they sing both in English and in Yoruba, a Nigerian language that made it's way to Cuba in the 1700's.  The sisters picked up music following the influence of their father Anga Diaz, and released their debut EP earlier this year. iTunes

Gregori Klosman: Time To Be Alone ft. Sarah Mount

This brief preview offers a glimpse at what's sure to be a brilliant new single.  Gregori Klosman's 'Time To Be Alone' errs on the somber, introspective side of progressive house.  It's a meticulously crafted departure from a style that's often over the top energetic.  The beautiful voice of Sarah Mount adds to the emotional power of the track, due next month on iTunes and Beatport.
