Two years ago, we featured a remix of Etta Bond’s Never Seen And Heard Before that featured a new hip hop talent named Ashnikko. Turns out, the London-based rapper has become quite the rising sensation back at home as of late, and her new song Blow is exactly the sort of effervescent, carbonated electropop/hip hop that we find irresistible. The edgy slick, whimsically punchy tune comes with a fresh and quirky video, too. Blow will be on Ashnikko’s forthcoming EP, Unlikeable, which will be out on Parlophone this summer. She explains of the track’s strong message of female empowerment: “‘Blow” starts with ‘Take it off and show them how much you want it,’ which is poking fun at the culture of women being exploited in music. I’m tired of being brainwashed that my body is my biggest asset. And it’s me saying to myself that I will never exploit myself in a way that doesn’t empower me.” Stream/download Blow, here.

London’s Etta Bond dropped a remix package for her throwback 90′s R&B track Seen And Never Heard today, and on it is an all female edit that features emerging South London hip hop artist Nadia Rose and newcomer Ashnikko. It’s a sweet and sassy Seen And Never Heard that the crew offers up, full of aloof spice yet tenderly soothing with a jazzy opulence. The mellow, chilly gem is a free download on Soundcloud. Check out the video for Etta Bond’s original below, if you missed it previously.
