Mixtape: Roger Riddle - Hoxxx! (I'm Talking to You, Ladies) - A Tribute to Princess Freesia

The playfully soulful sounds of Princess Freesia.

The release of Princess Fresssia's newest album, STELLARSONIC! is just the next stop on the wild ride I've been on since I first heard her voice.

Back in the days when Soundcloud wasn't deleting everything everybody uploaded, I spent a lot of time uploading to, searching, and listening to what was available on that website. 

I had run across and was following a producer named Soulpersona. I loved his remixes - particularly a Whitney Houston one comes to mind. Then one day I ran across a song called "Ultrasuperlove" that he produced. 

I was blown away by the sound. And the voice? The singer was amazing. 

What manner of music was this? It was new but it reminded me of the soulful sounds from the late 70s that I loved so much.

So looked up the vocalist behind the track, Her name was Princess Freesia. The next song I found was a cover of Barry White's "Never Gonna Give You Up". The integrity of the song was still there, but she had made it her own. At this point, it was official - she had her hooks in me. 

What came next was a bit of an obsession with this singer/producer 1-2 punch. 
I have since then bought every album I could find and any song with her name on it. That's seven full length albums - more than a lot of artists release in their entire career. 

In the world of Princess Freesia's music, it is always nighttime. She is loving, strong, bold, fun, and unapologetically feminine , and because of all of that, the music is very sexy. 
Her newest album, STELLARSONIC!, continues with her tradition of releasing solid albums. It is well worth the purchase.
