EXCLUSIVE: STERLING INFINITY PREMIERES HIS NEW TRACK “#HYPNOTIZED” 54

Having first discovered his passion for song-writing and performing in gospel music, Sterling Infinity’s voice soon earned him attention from anyone fortunate enough to witness him on a stage and he quickly moved from performing in churches to playing historic and iconic venues such as Madison Square Garden and Radio City Music Hall.

Now, here in 2018, Sterling has embraced his love of pop music and intertwined it with flashes of R&B and house styles, to create the persona and the sound that so many have come to know and love. With an empowering, captivating vocal prowess – a seemingly effortless range and a stunning rich vibrato – Sterling’s career continues to go from strength to strength as more and more music fans on both sides of the Atlantic discover his gift for themselves.

With comparisons to the likes of much loved and much missed icons including David Bowie, Freddie Mercury and Prince, Sterling Infinity is now set to launch himself further onto the global stage with the release of his self-titled deluxe edition album on July 20th. In the meantime, ThisIsTheLatest are delighted to premiere his new and deeply hypnotic single “#Hypnotized (Pyramid Black Remix)”, about which Sterling says:

“When I wrote and arranged the track, I wanted to write something that was timeless and would never be dated – that people of the future would still love the beat and rhythm. For me, house music is timeless. This is synth-rock meets house.”

Give “#Hypnotized” a listen below and for more information on Sterling Infinity, visit his website, give his page a like on Facebook or follow him on Twitter.

THE SUMMER SEASON KICKS INTO GEAR WITH THE IBIZA BURLESQUE FESTIVAL 59

As summer approaches and the festival season slowly gets into full-swing, one of the hottest upcoming events is the second annual Ibiza Burlesque festival, which takes place Friday 25th – Sunday 27th May.

Founded by singer-songwriter Sapphira, who has found the music of the white isle a lifeline during her struggles with bipolar, this years’ event, organised by the globally established company Sapphira’s Showgirls which champions self-expression and fundraises in support of mental health, includes a tribute of her debut single Money$hot as well as a special guest appearance by Billboard Top 20 and Grammy Award winning artist, Kim Cameron with DJ Halo.

Other highlights of the festival include performances from several world class artists, hailing from seven different countries, with Innocence Bliss and Jamilia Wardknott, both from the UK, and Italy’s Scarlet Lovelace among those confirmed to entertain those in attendance. There’s also a swimwear parade, a couple of pool parties and, if you fancy learning a little bit of burlesque yourself, you can take a beginner class in Sex A Peel with Sheila Starr Siani or Fantastic Fans with Sapphira.

The festival works in partnership with premium venues on the island, with the premier event – the Bass & Tease gala – taking place at the distinguished Heart Ibiza, a state-of-the-art restaurant come nightclub. From the first day to the last, the festival is set to delight and excite all those who attend.
