Martika LA was spotted on MySpace in 2009 where her musical talent and mixed heritage beauty (She is part Ghanaian, Greek, British and Dominican) saw her fast-tracked into girl group RD aka Ruff Diamondz. With RD she recorded and sang for two years, supporting JLS on tour and playing to tens of thousands of fans.
Since departing the group she has been focused on writing and recording new material. Now armed with a new sophistication and mature sound, Martika LA gears up for her debut album release in 2013. ‘Give Me Your Love’ is released 12/12/12 on Soko Records.
It’s about time the second Kylie Minogue single from Aphrodite came around. “Get Outta My Way” is a strong track with a solid dance sensibility, catchy lyrics and what seems like a great video (judging from the preview).
We wrote a piece on the lovely Paloma Faith over at our friends’ place SQUA.RE. It’s a piece that is unlike the writing we usually do here, but reminded us of our days as features editor. Click here to read it and comment.
