Roses Gabor

Quite probably best known for her guest vocals on SBTRKT’s ‘Pharaohs’ from the producer’s acclaimed 2011 debut album, Roses Gabor has also recorded with a long list of enviable collaborators, including Buraka Som Sistema, Shy FX, Jakwob, Ty and Redlight, as well as acting as a live vocalist for Gorillaz. Now signed to Toddla T’s Girls Music label, she’s ready to launch herself as a headline artist in her own right.

Her debut single for the label, ‘Stars’, due for release on 12 Nov, sees her again teaming up with Redlight as producer (their last work together being his 2010 single ‘Stupid’). The track’s warm synths are occasionally interrupted by what sounds like the round-ending siren from ‘Family Fortunes’, which here announces the entrance of a rumbling bassline. Roses’ vocals, at home equally on lighter and heavier tracks, flourish in this environment, as they’re cut up and rearranged around her.
