FRESH: ‘Magnificent’ – Rozalla

Rozalla is “Magnificent”!

Rozalla has had many hit singles in her time. First emerging on the Zimbabwe scene in the 1980’s, having moved there from her homeland, she is unofficially known as ‘The Queen of Rave.’ It was in 1988 that she first arrived in England with a record executive and from there she really hit the big time with club classics like “Everybody’s Free (To Feel Good)” in 1991. It was a sure-fire hit that sound tracked many nights out around the country and further afield, reaching the top 10 in numerous countries.

Today the track is still a real classic which continues to get people dancing. A debut album soon followed and hit the UK Top 20, and more hits came in the form of “Are You Ready To Fly” and “Faith (In The Power Of Love)”. In the live arena Rozalla is just as special, and she even toured with Michael Jackson during his Dangerous Tour. She also recorded the theme song to the film Carlito’s Way and had more chart success as a result, then tracks like “Baby”, “This Time I Found Love” and “You Never Love The Same Way Twice” kept her in the limelight ahead of a second album in 1995.

One of dance music’s most consistent performers, it is the style and melodic flair of Rozalla’s music that sets her apart. More albums have followed throughout her career. Still recording and performing around the world, Rozalla is a true dance icon. Her new single, “Magnificent”, the follow up to “Turn On The Light“, is written by Charlie Mason and Produced by Matt Pop, and with pop, house and retro remixes, delivers in every way. Big beats, superb vocals and a killer chorus.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
