#NewMusic | Ceylon Ceylon ft. Graziella - Ghost
This week, the production duo Ceylon Ceylon dropped their latest single ‘Ghost’ featuring ex-Foreign Beggars vocalist and established soul singer Graziella - out now on all digital platforms. This follows their last release ‘Why Don’t They Love You’ which also featured Graziella.
Having being premiered on influential blog Son Of Marketing, ‘Ghost’ sees the duo revert back to a more chilled production approach after the more hard-hitting ‘Why Don’t They Love You’. This time, they have opted for a jazzier approach with a piano-led track which boasts a distinctive late night jazz club vibe, paired with some contemporary synth flourishes, electro-funk guitar links and complimented by with another soulful vocal performance from Graziella.
The transatlantic duo, James from New York and Josh from London met whilst running club nights around Shepherds Bush, London. After bonding over a love of soul, funk, house and electronica, they began to hone their own electro-pop sound. Their debut EP ‘Colombo’ and lead track ‘Havass’ Ft. Katie Addy garnered plenty of early support from influential blogs like The Revue and Megatunes as well as with high profile YouTube channel Electro Pose.
Graziella gained a reputation as one of the UK’s go-to vocalists after she was featured heavily on 3 of Foreign Beggars' albums and toured internationally with the highly regarded hip hop collective. She also opened with Foreign Beggars for Amy Winehouse and performed with them at Glastonbury.
From being an X-Factor finalist to collaborating with DJ Vadim on his tour, Graziella continued to forge her path within the industry. After taking some time away from music, she is now working on many exciting collaborations.
