OFFICIAL ENTRY OF SWITZERLAND FOR THE 2016 EUROVISION SONG CONTEST – Remixed by Sonny Vice & Mark David
Swiss/Canadian singer/songwriter RYKKA presents her song “The Last Of Our Kind” which has been chosen to represent Switzerland at the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest. Rykka convinced both the audience and an expert jury in the Swiss national finale, and thus won the ticket to Stockholm.
The multitalented musician, tucked away in the vast hills and deep lakes near Zürich, Switzerland and in the Canadian wilderness surrounding Vancouver, has been writing feverishly and honing her next sound. Change has been a constant for the aspiring songwriter, who started as an acoustic folk artist under her moniker Christina Maria before reinventing herself as Rykka and emerging with an alternative pop bang.
“The Last Of Our Kind”, produced by Warne Livesey at Toronto’s Coalition Music, is a triumphant mega-ballad about standing for love at the end of the world. The original release is already available as Download >>http://www.littlejig.com/release/lj-4423. Rykka’s new Album BEATITUDES is due to be released later in Fall 2016.
Swiss DJ/producer team Sonny Vice & Mark David provide an upgraded version of this musical gem. The duo revamped the song into a powerful percussively driven Anthem that can easily be considered equal to the original as a fine addition to the package.
Switzerland: 12 Points, Suisse: 12 points, Schweiz: 12 Punkte…!!!
