Ali Love: “Another”

October 1st, 2013

London-based producer and vocalist Ali Love certainly knows how to keep himself busy. Besides being a member of both Hot Natured and Infinity Ink, he also continues to produce his own quality material. Following the release of his single “Emperor”, featuring Kali on vocals, back in March, Ali Love returns with his infectious new single “Another”, which pumps a “four-to-the-floor beat with glitchy percussion and distinctive psychedelic vocals.”

“Another” is the first proper taste of his upcoming solo album, the follow up to 2010′s “Love Harder”, which will be released early next year via Crosstown Rebels. The single will arrive on vinyl on October 14th and comes complete with remixes by the likes of Tuff City Kids, aka Gerd Janson and Lauer, and Felix Da Housecat.

Update: Here’s the video for “Another”, directed by Craig Murray.
