The beautiful and artistic Ms Marar has taken us on an eventful journey over the last few months releasing hit after hit from her debut album ‘The Real’. Following on from her club ready record ‘Go Hard’, Ayah returns with her ultimate single from the album ‘Lethal Dose’ released on her imprint ‘Hussle Girl’. ‘The Real’ has received championing support from Q Magazine who gave it four stars, Dazed Digital, Vibe, Mixmag, Timeout and The Sun who have labeled Ayah the ‘queen of bass’.
‘Lethal Dose’ dives deep into the darkness of desire and obsession and addresses the effects of emotional and physical addiction. The video for ‘Lethal Dose’ displays a stripped back version of the Ayah, and we’re invited in to a more sensitive and vulnerable side of the songstress that we haven’t seen before. Filmed within the warehouses where Ayah is now living, Ayah says
‘the making of the video really brought us together as a creative family and community, and touched on the phenomenon that is warehouse life.’
Ayah has been extremely busy this year since signing a deal with US Record Label – ‘Radikal Records’. As well as running her own label Ayah also finds time to tour the world and host her own monthly radio show on BBC Radio 1xtra. With everything shifting around her, Ayah can always count on one thing remaining constant and that’s her close connection with long-standing friend Calvin Harris. After Ayah released the video for ‘Lethal Dose’ this week Calvin took to twitter to show his support by saying ’amazing work from one of my best friends’.
With a jammed pack festival season and back-to-back tour diary Ayah continues to live out her legacy as the ‘queen of bass’. Keep your eyes peeled for the ‘Lethal Dose’ remix from French producer Dilemn signed to Audioporn coming very soon!
