Somebody To Love – Kathy Brown & AI (Music Video)
Made entirely possible through ‘Music Gateway’ revered drum and bass duo Artificial Intelligence and legendary Gospel and R&B singer / songwriter Kathy Brown have released their massive collaboration ‘Somebody To Love’ via Music Gateway, available for download now.
Back to the summer is where this track first began. Kathy, after having little success with social media platforms such as LinkedIn, turned to Music Gateway as the platform of choice to seek collaborators to help bring the 17 year old song ‘Somebody to Love’ back from the archives, co-written with Asha Keys Elfenbein, to add a modern twist with new flare.
Through Music Gateway Kathy was successfully connected to Artificial Intelligence. Work on the song started immediately through the successful communication and use of our workspace platform connecting both Kathy & AI globally without having to leave the comfort of their studios.
It was then decided that the song would really benefit from that ‘live sound’. So with this in mind found and hired through the platform were no less than industry legends – Primal Scream drummer Darrin Moony along with former Groove Armada percussionist Patrick Dawes. To complete the line-up assembled also was the talented Nick Pike on keys, Phil Walmsley on Guitar and AJ Chandrasena on Bass. By bringing various industry professionals across all stages of their musical careers together the quality of musicianship was of the highest result.
With the original track now in the bag Kathy and AI realised a variety of bespoke remixes would add further depth and reach to the single release and again Music Gateway fully satisfied this need. This led to the final process of hiring the relevant producer’s to provide remixes in a variety of different styles. Out of all the remixes submitted through the site from various DJs the successful remixes to be taken for release were from the likes of Massappeals, Copy Paste Soul, Others Echoes & Ben Knight, Kyshido and Alessio Calforio.
Through release of the heart warming music video following the story of three courageous robots journey home the song has received various press coverage through features and artist interviews with Kathy and AI ranging from Vibe, Do Androids Dance, The Frontliner and Massappeals remix being featured as Clash Magazine’s Track of the Day.
Along with this ‘Somebody To Love’ is quickly proving to be a firm favourite amongst both fans and tastemakers including Danny Byrd, Nu:Tone, Rich Parkinson (UKF/Kiss), Elisa Bee (Radio 2 RAI Italy), Sister Bliss (Ministry Of Sound), Rattus Rattus (Kiss FM) Paolo Mojo, Simon ‘Bassline’ Smith along with the single being chosen by BBC Radio 1Xtra DJ MistaJam for his sought-after and highly regarded ‘Future Classics’ slot.
For more than a decade AI have been studiously building upon their unique signature vibes in their Camden based studio grotto they call second home; reinforcing their position in the book of Drum and Bass with legendary tunes such as “Uprising”, “Bloodlines”, “Days Of Rage”, “Three’s A Crowd” and of course “Stand Alone” – their exceptional debut artist album for V Recordings (2010). Coming off the back of a busy 2013, the new single will kick off an exciting 2014 for AI, with more new music scheduled on leading drum & bass labels Shogun Audio and Goldie’s Metalheadz.
Kathy Brown has also scored a number of chart hits including her number one hit “Turn Me Out”. Due to her strong combinations of R&B and gospel influences, Kathy has remained a much sought after artist with a striking list of songs that includes “Can’t Play Around”, “Turn Me Out”, “Stronger On My Own”, “Joy”, “Don’t Leave”, “Get Another Love”, “Give It Up” and “Over You”. This has led her on to do collaborations with numerous artists, producers and leading groups such as Praxis, Soul Central and White Knights.
