Nigerian born musician Seye (pronounced 'shey-ah') has a second single coming out following the well-reviewed 'White Noise' track released back in April. 'Mexicana Bounce' is scheduled for release on September 24th 2012 through Stranger Records/ Mercury.
The brightly coloured video carries on the summer feel featuring a mini beach set up on top of city skyscraper. It's a feel-good arrangement which will certainly incite fond memories of summer fun this year and encourages you to party on into the autumn. With the Mexican theme, Seye hasn't neglected to injects hints of Latin music into his electronic dance beat and maintains a little of the African texture that was also apparent in 'White Noise'.
'Mexicana Bounce' has so far been well-played by Huw Stephens on BBC Radio 1 not to mention XFM. Seye has impressed folk all across the UK, landing slots at several of the biggest music festivals including Isle Of Wight, Lounge On The Farm and Latitude, and even provided guest vocals for the single 'Kondaine' by The Very Best. If that wasn't impressive enough, he even managed to secure a supporting slot alongside Lana Del Rey last year, followed by a slot with Emeli Sande in April and a highly appreciative Paloma Faith last month.
