Angie A releases a brand new Reggae Dub Trap remix of the classic We’ll meet again in aid of charoty and bringing people together.
London-based Angie A has released a brand new remix of Dame Vera Lynn’s ‘We’ll Meet Again’, equipped with an innovative new reggae trap sound. In aid of two of her chosen charities, and to reflect on her thoughts of the current social climate, Angie’s reimagined classic encourages people to chill out, heal and look back on what we’ve achieved in a problematic year.
The track is uniquely special, staying close to the original whilst also showing to everyone the style of music that Angie specializes in. It is a breath of fresh air for anyone who is familiar with the classic song, introducing it to a new circle of listeners who may not have enjoyed it before, and honouring it for those fans of the original, giving it a modern update.
As well as boasting performance skills, Angie is also a singing teacher, manager and owner of Keep Calm Sing group, that helps people learn to breathe calmly and correctly through the art of singing. During the summer, these sessions had to be quickly adapted to online.
With ‘We’ll Meet Again’, Angie has continued on the historic song with a newfound importance in the trying times that everyone was going through.
Once Angie saw The Queen saying the lyrics to her chosen song, “We will see our families again, we well meet again”, she considered combining the words with a rhythm track that she was working; the charity mix was born.
“I was also curious to see how the original song lyrics would fit on a completely different style of music that was produced by Alann Ulises”.
Angie hopes that the single can help her raise money for two of her chosen charities, one being the initiative, “Get Technology to Local Schools and Their Pupils”, helping fund access to better educational tech nationwide, especially during the pandemic where remote learning has become the primary access to education for children.
“We’re already aware that ‘many pupils don’t have the necessary hardware to access their remote learning’ as pointed out by Streatham MP Bell Ribeiro Addy and I would like to help”
The other charity is funds for care homes to have access for larger screen entertainment.
“As someone who has entertained in many care homes before the pandemic, I would like to help raise funds so more care homes can adapt their entertainment to some kind of one room cinematic large screen zoom type entertainment. Please support where ever you can, this really is about community, thank-you. ”
She has already appeared on Britains Got Talent, gaining praise from Simon Cowell and Piers Morgan, whilst she’s gained some media coverage after her previous release Essex Girl [Professional], which was part of the #IAmAnEssexGirl campaign to get the definition removed from the dictionary.
Angie’s career in singing is rather distinguished, having sung backing vocals for established artists including Yazz and Shakatak, as well as for Olive, who got to number 1 in the UK National Charts with the song ‘You’re Not Alone’.
Angies classic sounding vocals also have similar tones to the likes on Nina Simone, Jools Hollands Rhythm and Blues Band and Ella Fitzgerald. Her love for Jools Holland inspired her to start the hashtag #RoadToJools in attempt to appear on the Later…With Jools Holland show.
Well Meet Again remix is available on all major streaming platforms now!
