Nosuga is a musical project helmed by producer/mixer Christos Tsantilis and their newest record is a vibrant and energetic cut titled “HoT GirL(LiGhT Me uP)”. The song features the vocal talent of emerging rapper Zizzo who delivers a solid verse over the rousing soundscape. The song also features an all-star cast of performers and musicians ranging from Caron Wheeler of the GRAMMY-winning group Soul II Soul; New Zealand-based hit songwriter Andrew Mockler, who has toured live singing with Sting; GRAMMY-nominated singer/songwriter and Wyclef Jean collaborator Katia Cadet; producer and multi-instrumentalist David Lloyd of Beyond the Beyond , veteran Motown drummer Jon Ihle (Chuck Berry, The Righteous Brothers, Bo Diddley); percussionist Chris Theberge of Groove Collective; and bassist Zev Katz (James Brown, Sheryl Crow, Bruno Mars). Another interesting fact is both Zizzo and Tsantilis have been affected by the disease. Zizzo is a Stage IV cancer survivor while Tsantilis lost his father to lung cancer during the song’s production so all that really plays into the inspirational theme of the song.
