~ ISSA CELEBRATION ~ This International Women's Day Concrete Jungyals and I Give You Give are proud to present: MUSA MOTUS | An all femxle production. We have been working with 13 talented femxle producers and vocalists from across the UK to bring together a multi genre compilation LP that will be raising money for selected femxle orientated organisations: Spring of Hope Women's Shelter and Saffron Records. Two amazing lxdies have also donated their time to slay artwork and graphic design that has gone into this release. _________________________________________ About the contributors: Ngaio Ngaio is a force to be reckoned with. More than just a singer, this powerhouse of a performer can switch from a killer DJ set to delivering intricate jazz harmonies with a voice that could have stepped out of the 1940s, to heart hitting spoken word. Born in London, now a twenty years strong Bristolian, Ngaio has been skating across musical scene since she could walk. As well as being musical director of Bristol’s Bass Choir. She has been organising and promoting events since setting up of her own night Booty Bass which was started in 2018 as a way to provide a platform for more female DJ’s. It’s rare to find a performer with this many strings to their bow. Ngaio’s versatility as an artist has seen her moving audiences to standing ovations in St George’s Hall with a soul striking vocals, spark tears though truth laden lyrics, destroy dancefloors with selections old and new that take crowds on a journey of nostalgia and discovery and sometimes combine all three! Bringing jazz influenced vocals into the UK Funky world has seen her released on Bristol label Durkle Disco with a Cardinal Sound remix that reached clubs from Europe to Australia. Previously seen at festivals such as Glastonbury, Boomtown, Secret Garden Party, Love Saves The Day, Tokyo World and guesting on Rinse FM, Flex FM, Noods Radio and soon to be station regular at SWU FM, 2019 isn’t likely to see her slowing down any time soon. Electric performances that envelop the crowd, the vibe she provides stays long after she’s left.

She caught the itch after playing main room at Motion [Bristol], which she has confessed to be her biggest achievement.

She is a dj, but also studied at Deep Blue Sound in Plymouth and has been producing for just short of a decade, although admittedly was close to calling it quits with the scene until she stumbled across AYO by Binga & Redders which changed her outlook on life. After finding the Philip D Footwork eps, she found herself full of inspiration and became obsessed with blending 808 drums and jungle breaks, and particularly enjoys mashing up tracks when mixing with the aim to create a vibe for the heads as well as the people who are present to get down and dirty with the dance. Already mixing and producing for various femxle crews in the city, you can be sure to see her name a lot more in the upcoming future.

She has now turned her hand to music production and DJing, with a monthly residency on London radio station Subtle FM. LINKS www.instagram.com/laramakeitgood www.ukbassmusic.com _________________________________________ Mouse A face often seen in the shadows of the Bristol music scene, Mouse has been building for what’s felt like an eternity. Building and cultivating jagged fragments around her until she’s felt ready to stand back and let others view her creation. Eye-catching emeralds, daring scarlets, bright ambers and rich cyans borrowed from all of her eclectic influences decorate the walls of sound that surround her. Before finding her love of music production and delving into the world of pop and hip-hop, Scottish-raised Mouse grew up on a mixture of emo, math-rock and heavy metal. This unusual concoction allows Mouse to have one of the most distinct styles heard by a young artist. Her performing career has spanned near enough her entire life. Mouse has got a story to tell, whether it’s being performed on academy stages, tiny pubs or supporting Dua Lipa. Having written songs since the age of 8, there’s a charming purity and refreshing honesty that shimmers through her lyrics, often tackling topics in a way that no other can. Make no mistake though, she has wisdom and experience beyond her years and small stature. People are starting to notice too, after Mouse was selected for Naughty Boy and Carla Marie Williams' Girls I Rate event in 2018. The sonic mosaic she’s created can sometimes be dark in colour due to her convoluted past; but when the sunlight shines on the technicolour tiles, the reflection is breath-taking. "The rapidly rising Bristol-based but Scottish-raised pop star has a story to tell, whether it’s being performed on academy stages, tiny pubs or supporting Dua Lipa. Having written songs since the age of 8, there’s a charming purity and refreshing honesty that shimmers through her lyrics, often tackling topics in a way that no other can. Make no mistake though, she has wisdom and experience beyond her years and small stature.’ "She's worth looking out for, isn't she? Big, big career ahead of her" - Sue Kinnear, BBC Wiltshire “With bags of influences, ideas and heart behind her in addition to supporting superstar Dua Lipa, it’s only a matter of time before the Bristol singer and producer achieves stardom.” - Tap The Feed LINKS www.shescalledmouse.com www.instragram.com/shescalledmouse www.facebook.com/shescalledmouse Original drawings by Laura Wathen @wifwaff Curated by Concrete Jungyals
