Premiere: Hear UFO Fev’s new potent record ‘Nightclubs’ featuring Jamaica’s top female deejay Spice

The Spanish kid from the East got Grace (Spice’s first name) to bless the Grace Jones original. Fun fact: Both Grace’s were born in Saint Catherine Parish, Jamaica.

UFO FEV, one of the first New York City-native artists to leap from grinding through email pitches to mainstages all over the globe, returns with a potent feature from one of Jamaica’s baddest deejays, Spice. The flawlessly produced ‘Nightclubs’, inspired by Grace Jones’ classic ‘Nightclubbin’ sees the Harlem emcee with the high-grade descriptive lyrics, which plants its listener in the seat or room of his mind. If you weren’t born in the 70s, but you were rocking with Hip-Hop music when Puffy dated J Lo, you know the flip of this beat for Shyne’s debut album was a problem.

The year was 2000: the beginning of a new millennium and a new decade. The Barrington Levy-sampled single was a breath of fresh air. Music fans treated him like he was the second coming of Biggie because of his big baritone voice. ‘Nightclubs’ is a sweet ode to those times, and the classic ‘Nightclubbin’ by Grace Jones from her fifth studio album. Play this one loud, baby.
