“Believe it or not, I first heard the hook of ‘U Sexy Mutha U’ in a dream,” reveals Zhana Roiya of her new club anthem, releasing this week. It’s the follow-up to “Lick Me Up,” her #1 Billboard smash from this past summer.
“As soon as I woke up, I recorded it on my phone and waited for the opportunity when I could lay down the track in a studio.”
Written and produced by Barry Huffine and Stevie F, “U Sexy Mutha U” is a high energy retro pop record infused with gospel house. The hypnotic and infectious hook that Roiya dreamed about is one that club fans will want to sing at the top of their lungs.
“We wanted to create a song that was catchy and that anyone could relate to,” explains Stevie. “What’s more universal than desire? There’s a time in everyone’s life where their eye catches someone with a crazy sex appeal that really revs up their motor; someone they can’t stop thinking about who they want to be with.”
Roiya’s doubly excited that “U Sexy Mutha U” is releasing in time for Valentine’s Day because, after all, there’s no better time to get dirty on the dance floor.
To support the single, Swishcraft Music is rolling out a bunch of exciting interpretations from some of the top remixers in clubland, including 17-time Billboard Dance #1 remixers Division 4 and Matt Consola, 15-time Billboard Dance #1 remixers Dirty Disco, Bearlin Records super producer Jose Spinnin Cortes, London-based Circuit mega producer and label owner GSP, and former Paisley Park/Prince engineer turned producer Larry Peace. There are also versions by Nu Disco award winner Lucius Lowe, Spain’s Italo-Iberican pioneer OBTUS (aka Julián Guarque) as well as DJ/ remixers Max Grandon, Guy DeGiacinto and the team of Alberto Ponzo & Fabio Campos .
“Clubs need a song like ‘U Sexy Mutha U’ right now because global current affairs are so dark and bleak,” says Matt Consola of Swishcraft. “We need uplifting music we can escape into. Like the great Inaya Day says, sometimes you need to ‘Take Your Problems to The Dance Floor.”
