Space Sluts is a synthy, sexy solo project of Brooklyn based musician Madi Cox, who you may recognize as the keys player from the band Shelter Dogs. Space Sluts is a cathartic and very catchy way to deal with the heartbreak one finds while trying to navigate the dating scene of the modern world—made even more complicated in an era of global pandemic. On this episode of BTR Live Studio at Home, Madi dishes on her recently-released  single “St. v,” shares a live version of her quarantine song called “Touch Me (COVID)” and discusses how self-releasing music can feel a whole lot like dating.

One thing I learned about the music business: you don't have to be a superstar to go on tour and travel the world, you don't need to sell a billion records to make a living off your creativity. What you really need is courage, patience and some good talent. Up next on BTR Live Studio, this young man has been around the world visiting a ton of countries some people only dream about traveling to. Give it up for Mazzi & S.O.U.L. Purpose. Mazzi is a dancer, MC, and amazing writer who puts out a ton of music each year with most of the proceeds going to a charity of his choice. I had a chance to sit down and talk to the humble one. Watch a special at Home performance of "Piece" here. One Vibe Africa presents: "Year Of Return" is available now.
