Alissia - Get Away

New York-based bassist and musical prodigy-turned-producer Alissia, who in the past has collaborated with Khalid, Havoc (Mobb Deep), Anderson Paak and Q-Tip, not to mention has also recently been called upon to produce and play bass on Bootsy Collins' upcoming full-length album World Wide Funk, which will also feature respected artists such as Kali Uchis, Bernie Worrell, Big Daddy Kane, Doug E Fresh and Musiq Soulchild, has just recently stepped out into spotlight to showcase her own production prowess by unveiling her new track and video (directed by Bo Mirosseni) for "Get Away", a neo-funk and R&B tinged offering which carries listeners from hip hop to disco to funk and beyond.

Speaking on the track, Alissia says:

"I felt like it was time to write and produce a song that I release under my name which I haven’t done in a while. The video reflects my musical inspiration in different places in the city that never sleeps. I hope people will vibe to it!"

Watch the video for "Get Away" below and expect to hear a lot more from Alissia this year; whether solo, collaborating with the greats, or teaming up with new talent, she consistently proves that whatever music she creates just feels right.
