With a string of hits over the years under the AlunaGeorge banner, Aluna is stepping out on her own in a major way through the cracking debut single ‘Body Pump’ – her first release under the Mad Decent banner and taste of whats to come in her debut album!
‘Body Pump’ comes through with its thick synth bass carrying the core of the piece in its hands alongside the flavoursome groove held in the drums that sets the scene for Aluna‘s trademark commanding melodies that linger long after the conclude. With an addictive chorus melody sticking in your brain immediately, ‘Body Pump’ etches itself in the scene with a major impact and leaves us craving more as soon as possible!
“Having enjoyed being the main ingredient to many successful dance records, I started wanting to create the whole dish. In the past when performing on the stages of my white male peers, I always felt like a visitor being one of the few Black women I could see, so it never fully occurred to me to claim dance music as my music, as an artist, even though it was at the heart of my connection to music.” – Aluna
