CLAW returns with a triple threat: vocalist and songwriter Xenia Rubinos links up with sci-fi MC Sammus and electronic composer Olga Bell.

If you’re feeling down and out, leave it to Xenia Rubinos, Olga Bell and Sammus to lift your spirits. “Levitating,” the first collaboration of this almost unfairly gifted trio sees them go deep from the start. Over a sultry Olga Bell instrumental that wouldn’t go amiss on a Soulquarians revival 12”, MC Sammus reflects on the privileges and responsibilities that come with being part of a progressive movement, before the beat switches up mid-track and Xenia gets to prove her bilingual lyrical prowess. Besides the premiere of “Levitating,” this week’s C.L.A.W. takes a closer look at the diverse individual musical histories of these impressive women.
