Exclusive premiere of the new Raphaella video

Who? Raphaella

What’s the Story? Perhaps the most prolific British musician/songwriter/producer you’ve never heard of, North London-born Raphaella has collaborated with a huge array of cutting edge names: Rudimental, MNEK, Wilkinson, NVOY, Afrojack, Pep and Rash, Midnight City, and Brit-winner Blair Mackichan to name just a few. It’s safe to say that the industry has Raphaella fever, and from the sound of cool new release Alien, dancefloors throughout clubland are about to catch it too. With a hint of the east-meets-west vibe that can be heard in most of her music and lyrics – a cultural clash that pays reverence to her Persian, English and Scottish heritage – it’s a cool and infectious track that perfectly captures that late-summer sound. Expect it to be a bona fide dance classic this time next year.

For fans of: Rudimental, Gorgon City

In three words: Festival anthem incoming
