ARTIST OF THE WEEK: No. 200 Nick Lee & Halima

While this unrelenting summer sun seems to have no end, we have been spending every second of it trying to find the perfect soundtrack to the current hot weather and think we have found it with the introduction of multicultural duo Nick Lee & Halima.

Made up of Halima, a Nigerian born in New Jersey and raised in London whilst Nick Lee is Chinese and Japanese, the pair have obviously taken their melting pot of cultures and unloaded them into the wonderfully upbeat new single 'Hotspice'.

With its fresh and vibrant sound, which takes influence from afrobeat, dancehall, and tropical flavours, 'Hotspice' is one of those tunes that simply can't be pigeonholed into one genre. The stark electronic sound gives the record a real energy to it, making it something impossible to ignore.

'Hotspice' is available to download now via RCA Records, and you can also check it out in the player below.
