Alexandra Blakely first came to my attention as the vocalist and one half of Solbust alongside partner hugo vera solari. The duo from Mexico City released their debut album “Natural High” in 2011 and enjoyed support from the global soul community.
Fast forward 2 years and Songwriter, MC and Singer Alex is back with a solo project and celebrates her debut release “Reset”. The new album is a more thought provoking journey (to her previous and more soulful work) where she gets on point and questions the important everyday things that effect us all, like capitalism, the system and politics as well as tackling topics such as violence, peoples colorblindness, and white privilege. Overall Reset is a quality album with plenty of standout tracks and collaborations throughout.
Released 09 May 2013
