I love DivaGeek.
I discovered the UK duo DivaGeek about 2 years ago, and I have been hooked ever since. Lead singer Vula Malinga does vocals like I haven’t seen since the days of Martha Wash — just big, brash and effortless!
“Mr Happy” quickly became a favorite of mine, and I even pitched it for a few projects I was working on.
They tweeted these gems today, as apparently they are leftovers from a Red Bull Sessions recording that they did that weren’t used. Slightly rough, but still awesome. Please listen to the end of “Mr Happy” (original track after the jump). Trust me on this. They also did a live version of their cover of Hall & Oates’ “I Can’t Go For That” which is still fun and well done. Hit that after the jump!
They’ve done major work this year, opening for and/or working with such folks as Rahsaan Patterson, Lalah Hathaway and more. I look forward to new music from them with every passing day.
