Hot Remix Alert: Black Porcelain - Butterflies (DJ Zinhle Remix
Back in April I named South African singer/songwriter Black Porcelain to your attention, calling her one of my 'Ones To Watch in 2011.' There was just something about her that I inspired me to post. I don't know if it was her soulful vocals or her deep and meaningful lyrics, or perhaps it was her story of wrongful termination from her job as a radio presenter. No matter, her music is what speaks to me now and evidently, it speaks to a lot of people all over the world.
While the original version of her single, "Butterflies" remains a beautiful piece of artistry, a new remix might just make me love the song even more. "Butterflies" was the first single released off Black Porcelain's EP, TheInBetween and it's been given a bit of a dance floor makeover by South African DJ Zinhle. Within two weeks of it's release, the remix was play-listed in 17 countries including Australia, Switzerland, Germany, Russia, Italy and even her native country, South Africa. Now given the success of the original track, which was play-listed in 8 countries, the success of the remix is not a surprise. That being said, the fact that Black Porcelain is a label-less independent artist and still seeing this amount of success is very exciting indeed. The Soweto born singer/songwriter is currently in the studio finishing up her debut album, Invincible Summer.
"I called the Album Invincible Summer as it has been a very long journey with many rejections on the way. I was inspired by an Albert Camus quote (In the depth of winter, I finally realised that within me there lay an invincible summer), which described this journey so well."Scope out the hot new remix below and make sure you check my original post to listen to the single version of the track. So glad things seem to be taking off for this talented artist. She certainly deserves all the success in the world.
