Rising pop sensation ALMA shares a banging remix from Murder He Wrote for smash single Chasing Highs. The UK producer introduces a darker take, twisting elements of Garage and Drum & Bass into a moody mix. Listen here.
The 21-year-old Finnish powerhouse (currently working with MNEK, Rudimental, Charlie XCX, Sub Focus and 2 Inch Punch) needn’t worry about clichés: with her long, electric-neon hair, baggy punk attire and ‘zeros fucks’ magnetic attitude she is everything but the stereotypical pop princess. “She looks like a cybergoth reimagining of a young Adele and sounds like Beth Ditto had she been raised on tropical house,” The Observer wrote recently – they hit the nail on the head.
Chasing Highs, which was premiered on Radio 1 by Mistajam as his ‘Hottest Record’. It has already notched up over 17 million global streams and is climbing up the airplay and Spotify charts around Europe, and follows the release of Alma’s debut EP, Dye My Hair. Since the release of Dye My Hair, ALMA has notched up over 100 million combined Spotify plays, with the title track of the EP scoring a no. 1 on iTunes in ALMA’s home country, a top 10 in Germany’s singles chart and extensive support from Radio 1 (including a recentplaylist addition) in the UK.
