Zimbabwean, Melbourne-based songstress Quashani Bahd delivers dance floor heater 'Get On Up'
Zimbabwean solo artist Quashani Bahd is well-versed in the art of anthemic, high energy productions. Born in the heart of Southern Africa, and now having called Melbourne, Australia home for two decades; the rising artist has lived a host of rich and varied experiences, the results of which shine through in her work. Following one already storming release this year ‘Two Wrongs’, Quashani now returns to the spotlight with dance floor heater ‘Get On Up’.
Following the development of an uplifting, dancehall-infused catalogue of sonic goodness, ‘Queen Quashani’ has stirred up some magic yet again. By seamlessly integrating elements of dancehall and r&b, and adding euphonious echoes of reggae and hip hop fusion tones, this new offering lends itself to a unified experience - one that you can only find on the dancefloor.
From singing in school choirs and talent shows at the tender age of nine, to now fully immersing herself in the Melbourne reggae scene; the songstress values diversity at its best as she cements her place in the music arena. Having debuted her sound at the acclaimed Oz Soul’ Collective in 2011, she is truly an artist born out of organic growth and collaboration. Joining forces with some of Melbourne’s most hailed resident reggae and dancehall selectors, from Chant Down Sound to Natty Sistren Sound, Quashani Bahd has developed her craft to form an irresistible sound built on pure, driving grooves.
With echoes of noughties club heat, Bahd’s latest offering exists freely to remind music lovers that variety and energy remain key words all year round. As a signature topline borrows the sinuous rhythms of reggae, fans are carried by a dancehall groove with sensitive ears being sure to prickle. Fusing teasing builds with a call to get up and moving, belly bottoms tremor at the chunky bassline as the artist showcases her natural versatility.
Speaking on her latest storming delivery, Quashani Bahd said:
"Get On Up is an ode to dancehall, r&b and hip hop, my love for old school vibes really chimes through in this feel-good funky jam."
