JANINE AND THE MIXTAPE RELEASES FIRST TRACK & VISUAL FROM FORTHCOMING SOPHOMORE EP
LISTEN & WATCH “THIS MOMENT (ECKHART TOLLE)”
“Janine and the Mixtape first started turning heads with 2013’s sensuous, magisterial Dark Mind EP. “This Moment (Eckhart Tolle)” is the first track we’ve heard from the next project, due out in April. With 4e providing deft production and a bevy of harmonies at her back, Janine takes listeners down a moody, heartsick path that breaks into an soaring chorus.” -Pigeons & Planes
“HOLD ME” REMIX & “THIS MOMENT”
PART OF JANINE’S LITTLE MIXTAPE MONDAYS CAMPAIGN
The New Zealand-born singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist/producer’s acclaimed debut EPDark Mind was re-released via US-based DSP’s on November 4th, 2014 (after joint venture with Atlantic Records). Since then, Janine has been on the rise. This week, as part of Janine’s Little Mixtape Mondays campaign, she graces us with new track and visual for “This Moment (Eckhart Tolle).
Last Monday, her buzz single, “Hold Me” received a fresh touch this week with production by visionary producer/artist Ghost Loft and also features up and comer Tunji Ige. The Fader exclusively premiered this beat and you can check it out / listen here. The original track has already proven a breakthrough for Janine, drawing more than 1 million plays on her official SoundCloud while also earning featured play on VH1’s smash reality series, Love & Hip Hop Atlanta.
Now based in Brooklyn, Janine and The Mixtape – known to friends and family as Janine Foster – began performing at open mic nights in her native Auckland when she was but 14 years old. She soon developed her own unique amalgam of pop, indie, R&B, and hip hop, all built around her emotional songcraft, otherworldly vocals, and utterly individualistic persona. Released initially by her own Little Mixtapes Records in 2013, Dark Mind immediately shot Janine and The Mixtape into the spotlight – as well as the top 2 on the iTunes Store’s “Top R&B Albums” chart. The EP – which also includes the hit single/video, “Little Bit” (featured on VH1’s Love & Hip Hop Hollywood) – received worldwide applause, with high praise coming from such outlets as MTV, Billboard, VIBE Vixen, Complex, and VIBE, which ranked Janine and The Mixtape among their “R&B Secret Society: 26 Acts You Should Be Listening To.”
