The OXD Mirror: Reintroducing MNEK and a Slew of New Remixes



The OXD Mirror is a weekly music column brought to you by the boys of OCCUPY THE DISCO (OXD), a New York City based collective created by three music lovers, Ru Bhatt, Josh Appelbaum, and Tad Haes, who want to share their love for disco, house and dance music with the world.   

Uzoechi Osisioma Emenike, known to the masses as MNEK, has peppered the soundscape with his unparalleled talent, through collaborations and remixes for artists such as Rudimental, Charli XCX and Duke Dumont. Now that the British teen has signed to a major record label, he's pulling out all the stops and gearing up to release of his first full-length album. The buzz around MNEK started with his release of various "refixes" of 90s hits (using his vocals and completely new backing). Browsing through his soundcloud feed makes it clear that the popular music from this 19-year-old's childhood, from garage to R&B, has influenced his style in every possible way. With 'Every Little Word,' MNEK repackages those influences and infuses some new jack swing into his already iconic souful vocal vibe. Can't wait to hear what he has in store for us next!

Jessie J Comes Out as Straight, Says Bisexuality Was a 'Phase'


British pop star Jessie J tells the UK's Mirror that she's now straight:

The star, who had previously said she was bisexual, spoke candidly to 3am about her changing sexuality.

“For me, it was a phase,” she says. “But I’m not saying bisexuality is a phase for everybody.

“I feel that if I continue my career not speaking on it, I almost feel more of a liar than if I didn’t. I just want to be honest, and it’s really not a big deal. Who cares?”

Jessie adds:

"I did talk about it, and I was open about it, and I do support being lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender - love who you want. That’s what I’m doing. I don’t regret anything I ever said, but I never knew back then that whatever I said became a fact that I couldn’t change. I’m just so bored of it, and that’s kind of it – I want to stop talking about it completely now and find myself a husband. It’s a true struggle. All the chick flicks that didn’t make sense to me, I now understand – Sex and the City is real! I’m not anything. I’m aware of who I want to be and I want to marry a man. That’s it."

If this track is getting the amount of radio airplay (every 20 minutes) everywhere as it is in Minneapolis, where I am right now, it should chart much higher than "Price Tag" did.
