FRESH: ‘Tic Toc’ – Zaritza

Zaritza releases “Tic Toc”

“Tic Toc” is an anthem of life woven by Zaritza’s uplifting voice and DJ Titusz’ energetic beats. “Tic Toc”, the new musical collaboration by Zaritza and DJ Titusz, is an exotic blend of fresh and groovy rhythms, soulful voice and empowering lyrics. Through this new project, the New York-based singer incorporates the themes of passion, inesse and sexual freedom, praising female empowerment in an innovative format which includes Electronic Music and Soul.

Combination of Pop, Funk and Electronica, the time is here for a fresh, positive, energetic, summer vibe. In “Tic Toc”, Zaritza shows her sensual and playful side; a flower of self-expression that has grown out of the earth of the old soviet era. She is an enigma with depth and understanding that is set to blossom into more realisations of imagination for all to enjoy.

Born in a small Russian village at the end of the Soviet era, Zaritza followed the path of Apollo since her young age. She took music and dance as her ultimate shelter against the struggle of her daily life and excelled in both. Being an outstanding dancer and classical pianist, she was spotted and integrated into an intense program dedicated for gifted musical students. As a result, she won numerous regional piano competitions and received several awards. Although she had followed a classical art at her beginnings, she fell for the freedom that the creative process of Pop music offered.

Zaritza instinctively began writing and recording her original pop songs. After graduating from high school and ten years of musical training, Zaritza spread her wings to join the U.S musical scene with great devotion, passion and determination. Whilst here she absorbed the culture, the musical inspiration and energy to develop even further, even getting the chance to meet legends such as Nile Rogers (Chic), Robert “Kool” Bell (Kool & the Gang) and David Robinson (The Cars). Her musical signature is a fusion between two cultures and holds a rich set of inspiring notions like love, identity, dreams, disappointment, freedom, femininity and feminism.

The techniques of Zaritza as a musician are affected by the perfectionism and accuracy of her previous classical music training as well as the creativity and the good sense of risk taking of her Pop Music spirit. Her roots are woven through many deep-set artistic nutrients, meaning that each work she creates is unique and more personal than the last. “All I can say is: ooh la la” Zaritza tells us. She really has something going on. This is a great album, full of mesmerising melodies that span the spectrum from rock to classical. And Zaritza’s voice is superb.

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!
