I was introduced to YADi a few months back via a session she recorded for Hypetrak in which she performed a few tracks and I was interested from the outset. A uniquely brilliant live voice was accompanied by all London-based Algerian musicians was recorded at London's Fish Factory Studios and the results are riveting. Taking a western band set up and mixing it with traditional raï instruments I couldn't take my eyes off the screen and listened on a loop for a good hour. Today she's let loose two other recordings from that session in the shape of "Blow" and "Sahara Heart". They're up at the top and down below respectively. Get familiar and look out for a debut album next year.
