Marta Ren & The Groovelvets

Release Me

Record Kicks

Released: 1st July 2016 | 1 track funk single

Release Me is the new single from the heavily acclaimed debut album Stop Look Listen by Oporto soul diva Marta Ren & The Groovelvets and comes out together with a spectacular video filmed at Oporto Psychiatric Hospital. Stop Look Listen came out in February on Record Kicks and has been heavily supported by Radios like BBC6, FIP (Radio France), KCRW and from djs such as Craig Charles (BBC6), Dj Monk (Wax Poetics), Eddie Piller (Acid Jazz Records), Francis Viel (Mouv).

Marta Ren is not a newcomer as she has been around in the Portuguese scene since the mid 90s lending her deep and powerful voice, amongst others, to break-beat outfit The Bombazines, recording two albums and establishing her unique talent at clubs and festivals all around Portugal. But Marta's passion has always been for the deepest funk and rawest soul of the sixties, and now the time has come for her to show the world her immense talent. With a powerful voice that would make the founding soul sisters proud, Marta Ren is looking to rule the world and make herself a household name.
