A deliberate music junkie, with the spectrum of the universe being played in her world as a child; Brown Sugar is and will always be drawn to people who have a passion for music.
Never afraid to go deep musically, yet highly selective and distinctive of her musical taste , the quietly bubbly Claudz (better known as Miss Ouch) aims to ensure that you, the listener is entertained with an indulgent beat & often meaningful lyrics. She carefully integrates the nostalgic yet rarely played irregular Neo & Bass-line Soul with current and emerging Neo sounds. Having been surrounded by a wide range of genres musically from childhood, not surprisingly Miss Ouch certainly is not pigeon holed into one genre, but rather just has a more prolific love of the Neo Independent Soul beats which are the predominate tracks you can expect. She’s just an ordinary down to earth girl, who has an inquisitive & exquisite love of music. She will also play Rare Grooves, Lover’s Rock and Classic 90’s Soul from time to time. Feel free to tune in on a Saturday eve via iLive UK between the hours of 6-8pm GMT or Thursday eve between the hours of 7-9pm GMT or 2-4pm EST. Do indulge; she just might have you coming back for more. She indeed looks forward to your company.
