Raised in Birmingham to parents with Jamaican and Irish heritage, Clementine Douglas has unveiled her brand new debut solo single “Riddles”. One of the UK dance scene’s most instantly recognisable vocal talents, Clementine Douglas steps out into the limelight and takes centre stage with her debut solo single, showcasing a raw vocal performance with lush elating strings and a thudding house beat.

Sweet soulful vocals and warm live instrumentation give dance music a more humanising touch and open the pathway for a new innovative sub-soundscape to be formed.

Speaking on this exciting new chapter and the new single, Clementine shares:

“It’s like Riddles is the first chapter of a new book. One where I get to set the scene and create the characters but where the story will go, I don’t know. I guess that’s what makes it exciting. Ever since I was little I’ve always had a passion for singing and writing songs, I just want to keep creating music I love and see where the journey takes me.

With my solo music, I’m trying to bring more soulful elements into dance, like live instruments, piano and strings. Some dance music can be so electronic and auto-tuned that you lose the humanity of it. With this, there’s no auto-tune, I just want to make it feel kind of raw, and like it has some textures and a human touch to it.”
