Rita Ora’s unstoppable domination of the UK charts continues with the release of her new single ‘Shine Ya Light’ on 4th November taken from her No.1, certified gold debut album‘ORA’. The Roc Nation / Columbia signing hit the music scene earlier this year featuring on the No.1 DJ Fresh hit ‘Hot Right Now’, Rita followed this smashing into the charts with her own No.1 singles ‘R.I.P’ and How We Do (Party)’ making her the only artist this year to have three No.1 singles in a row. The release of her debut album ‘ORA’ rounded off her incredible run also claiming the No.1 spot this summer.
Live she has set the bar at another level supporting US superstar Drake and UK rock giants Coldplay on tour as well as playing at every major UK festival and event this summer including Hackney Weekend, Wireless, Lovebox, T in the Park, Capital’s Summertime Ball, T4 On The Beach and making a special appearance on her home ground at the Notting Hill Carnival. To top it off she celebrated the release of ‘ORA’ in style with an unforgettable performance at JAY-Z’s Made In America festival and will go on to support Usher on his European tour.
State-side Rita has also been making quite an impression on U.S. audiences, with stellar performances on Good Morning America and Jimmy Kimmel Live. She presented “Best Male Artist” award and ruled the red carpet at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards, charmed Ryan Seacrest on his show ‘On Air with Ryan Seacrest’ and she was the most recent artist to grace the stage of MTV’s Grammy® and Emmy® award-winning series, Unplugged. With two EMA nominations under her belt, four MOBO nominations and four nominations at the Radio 1 Teen Awards Rita has fast become one of the most exciting new artists to break through this year.
Roc Nation / Columbia release the new single ‘Shine Ya Light’ on 4th November. For the making of the video Rita returned to her home country of Kosovo for the first time in eight years where she was greeted by the President and Prime Minister. She described it as the best video shoot she has ever done – ‘I was born in a little city called Pristina which no one really knows about, so I’m proud to kind of put it on the map out there a little bit because we are a very patriotic country so we always try and mention us wherever we can because it’s such a great place.’
Rita’s new single ‘Shine Ya Light’ is available for pre-order now and will be released on 4th November on Roc Nation / Columbia Records.

Fresh off the release of the critically-acclaimed Ghettos & Gardens album, dirtybird and Justin Martin are proud to present Ghettos & Gardens Remixes Vol. 1. Featuring remixes of the album’s lead singles “Ghettos & Gardens”, “Don’t Go” as well as “The Gurner” feat. PillowTalk, “Molokini”, and “Riding Spaceships”. Justin has asked Dusky, Danny Daze, Bachelors Of Science as well as label mates Catz ‘n Dogz, French Fries, and Ardalan to all contribute. Each remix is thoughtfully produced, dynamically diverting from the original production. To start things off, Dusky brings the house down with their version of “Don’t Go” while Danny Daze twists the vocals of PillowTalk with deep chords and an acid bassline on “The Gurner”. Catz ‘n Dogz do what they do best providing “Butterflies” with blissful dance floor punch, French Fries drops the heavy bass in his “Molokini” remix and Ardalan’s remix of “Riding Spaceships” drops liquid in your ear drums. Last but not least, the Bachelors Of Science give us their drum & bass interpretation of “Ghettos & Gardens” which is surely not to be missed. Stay tuned for Ghettos & Gardens Vol. 2 featuring remixes from …?
