UK Tings: Katy B – Louder
by Winston "Stone" Ford
I’ve seen Katy B pop up on several blogs here and there but it took a while for me to peep her new single “Louder.” I was ready to dismiss her as yet another “not ready for prime time” pop starlet, but I’m loving the new single and how it combines electro, hip-hop and pop sensibilities.
Don’t get it twisted, Katy has cops. As a graduate of the prestigious BRIT school (along with Adele, Amy Winehouse, Leona Lewis, Marsha Ambrosius, and Kate Nash. She’s also worked with the former pirate radio station Rinse FM as well as dubstep DJ Benga.
This track will no doubt be a “floor filler” in The UK but will it ever make it to The States? Who knows. I know the DJ remixes are gonna bang.
