Priscilla Angelique is a London based British singer songwriter, music producer, animator and academic. Influenced by jazz music and early hip hop culture she developed her style as a scat singer giving her a jazzy vocal and soulful vibe. She produces Soulful House, UK Garage and Nu Jazz among other styles of urban music. She produces animated music videos and film shorts, virtual reality experiences and VR360 videos. She is known as an artist who produces all aspects of her work. All of the media on this site with the exception of the Rock City Crew Photo below was created by her. She is the founding member of the group The Urbanists.
Her recent releases include the dance tracks Give Me That Feeling, You’ll Find Love Again and Hold Me Tight. Her soulful house single Aftershock showcases the more jazzy side of her vocals and Latin dance vibes can be heard in her single You Don’t Seem to Know. Her debut album Positive Digital is heavily jazz influenced and saturated with electro house beats and tech synths. It has been compared to the work of Joey Negro, Armando Gallop and Ron Trent Jr. DJ Lil Jon of Chicago’s 5 Magazine describes it as ‘tasty ear candy, and a refreshing change of pace in a watered down, cookie-cutter music industry’.
Collaborations include a dubstep/hip hop crossover track with Oakland CA artist Major D called Holla. What makes the track enjoyable, according to Noho Arts District reviewer David Mariam, is the ‘fusion of different influences’. They collaborate again on the tracks Curious, and Curious (Futurebox Remix). Whether being compared to Jill Scott, Estelle or Erykah Badu she is forging her way through the underground music scene and is one to watch out for.
