Simple Pleasures (Ski Oakenfull Dub)

Released: 4th February 2022
Brettina Vs Incognito ‘Simple Pleasures’ includes Ski Oakenfull and Yakul remixes.
This is the new single from Bahamas-based jazz singer-songwriter Brettina. She has been a fan of the Incognito sound for many years and managed to hook up with Bluey to record this new version of her single ‘Simple Pleasures’ . Bluey has brought the trademark Incognito production to this track using the whole band to create a classic horn-driven sound. To complement the original is a remix by Brighton-based electronic jazz act Yakul whose singer James Berkeley has toured with Incognito and long term Incognito collaborator Ski Oakenfull who's delivered a 4 to the floor soulful house dub.

Brettina grew up in a show business family – her mother is gospel singer Leona Coakley Spring, and her uncles are Theo and Kirk Coakley of the popular 1970 funk/soul group and R&B band T-Connection. At the age of five, her family identified her singing talent and began nurturing her skills. Brettina has said that while many children watched cartoons, she studied her uncle’s performances on Soul Train and began developing her own craft. By the time she finished school at C.I. Gibson, she had already penned hundreds of songs. Her family relocated to the United States after she was awarded a scholarship to the University of Washington in Seattle. She now resides between the Bahamas and LA.

“In these Covid hit times It’s about appreciating the simple things in life,” said Brettina of the single “Simple Pleasures” which she co-wrote with singer, songwriter, vocal producer and dancer, Tricia Battani in 2019.

Brettina has received critical acclaim from All About Jazz, Jazz Wax and Bohemian Soul. Her second album ‘New Day is set for release in the summer of 2021 and follows her debut ‘Brettina'.
