Istanbul/New York-based singer-songwriter/producer SIRMA released her glitched out and vocals driven new double single “On/”24 Hours” today and the single is a collaboration with producer Mallow (aka Ian Barnett) who turned heads for his work with NY rapper Marlon Craft.

“I used a bunch of sounds that I recorded on my Zoom field recorder- just random things around the apartment to create the beats. Between those sounds and samples from an old unreleased track of mine, it all came together really fast and organically. I showed both demos to SIRMA a year later and she liked them, so I sent her the stems I had bounced at the time, which she then re-arranged, wrote and recorded vocals on top of as well as finishing the production with a few additions and touches of her own. She also mixed and mastered both tracks, so the collaboration went pretty smoothly for me, because my input came at the very beginning and she did her thing after that.”

Black Friday madness is upon us, it’s good thing that we have this exquisite mix of dancey, electronic pop tunes from Istanbul born, currently New York City residing artist/songwriter/producer and Berklee College Of Music alumni SIRMA.

SIRMA’s music is a blend of ethereal pop with electronica. She has spent the past two years working on developing her own sound and writing, recording and producing at her home studio in Brooklyn. The first product of this seclusion and self-discovery is her “To Love” EP, which will be released early 2017.

Montreal based duo, Blue Hawaii, put their signature stamp on the latest from New York songstress, Sirma. Blue Hawaii’s sparse, hypnotic, almost tribal production provides a perfect framework for Sirma’s lilting vocals to flutter about in the ethers… this remix seems far more appropriate for her voice than the original arrangement and I’d be curious to see a full on collaboration between the two burgeoning acts.

Check out her “Instincts EP” to get a taste of authentic Sirma.
