TQ is back with a new single due out on 1st February 2010, taken from a new album currently in the making "KIND OF BLUE" which should be available in the spring, with a global tour being put together.
The single ELECTRONIC has several mixes, and reflects TQ's willingness to push the boat out, work outside the usual parameters of standard r&b fare, and link with some of the best up and coming producers both sides of the Atlantic
Lead version features LA artist Tha Vill, an MC and producer who has worked with and produced for The Saturdays, The Game, Akon and several others, having come from the tough streets of North Chicago, he moved to LA to establish the formidable Hi Energy Entertainment covering audio & film production. A Myspace featured artist he has a massive online following and was one of the origibators of the electro urban sound. This lead track has that hybrid r&b/electron vibe and is already receiving strong airplay in the UK
Another mix which has the accompanying video comes from crack UK Asian/Desi producers Tigerstyle. A heavy rhythmic desi vibe, TQ has a strong Asian following in the UK given it is a tradituinal supporter of r&b but also with his appearance in Bollywood film Rockin Meera which has just been released in the States.
BBC Asian Network's Sonnyji goes back to his first love of house to provide a slammin dance re-work of the track which is totally infectious. London's DJ Mappa provides the final re-work, a funky house version which is a genre particularly hot in the London area and a mix which has been picking up further additional top level support.
Best known for Westside and Bye Bye Baby some time ago, TQ has been working mainly independently, operating from his own Hub Muzic imprint though just signed a partnership agreement with E1 (Koch). As well as working on several tv pilots, he continues to tour globally where he retains a phenomenal fanbase, and this latest single release is thought to be one of the most diverse and strongest singles he has produced for several years
