Aluna from AlunaGeorge has released a lyric video for her debut solo single, 'Body Pump'.

"Having enjoyed being the main ingredient to many successful dance records, I started wanting to create the whole dish," she says of her new material. "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.

“Then I looked at the history of dance music and saw how, for example, Chicago House, known as the invention of house music, was pioneered in the Black and Latino LGTBQ+ communities which gave me inspiration to stake my flag in the ground as a Black woman in dance music by taking control of production and songwriting with my own vibe.”

Mad Decent label boss Diplo adds: "I've been a fan of Aluna for years - her voice, her style and her way of putting records together. Having her sign to Mad Decent feels like a family reunion - can't wait to get these records out to everyone. Huge project for Mad Decent."

Give 'Body Pump' a watch below, and keep an eye out for news of a debut album.
