Electric Bodega Remixes Vali's Billboard Charting Hit "Ain't No Friend of Mine"
Our First Look Friday series over the past year has been full of budding stars, names you should know and hitmakers. One such entry, Vali, has a dope one with “Ain’t No Friend of Mine,” which has caught the ears of the dynamic DJ/production duo Electric Bodega.
The Rostrum Records‘ signer-songwriter blends well with the duo’s vivacious, sunshine-filled beat. Cooked up with afro-tinged beats, plus Vali’s distinctive voice makes “Ain’t No Friend of Mine,” a misnomer of sorts, as you totally want to be her friend and cut up on the dance floor to this wonderfully flavored song.
This is the first single to be released from Vali’s upcoming EP and to celebrate the original’s success, she will be performing at Black Rabbit Rose in Los Angeles on May 9.
If you’re unfamiliar with Rostrum Records’ premium songstress, Vali is a New Yorker through and through who caught the eye of the legendary Laurieanne Gibson (Katy Perry, Lady Gaga) and has since become her manager. “Ain’t No Friend of Mine” is climbing Billboard‘s Top 50 dance chart with a bullet. Electric Bodega on the other hand is a Staten Island, New York duo that consists of Mike Cash and DJ Klutch. There recent remixes of “Bad & Boujee” (Migos) and “Not Nice” (PartyNextDoor) are in full rotation at Hot 97, and together these are the sounds that will electrify the summer airwaves.
