Nine Ten Eleven: The Refixes by Jermaine Riley

WHEN WE at here! first heard that UK boy group FDM (formerly Fun*dmental) were no more, there were audible gasps around the newsroom.

The talented trio, comprised of Jermaine Riley, Kyle Lettman and Varren Wade, had after all caught the eye of US superstar, Ne-Yo and were reallocating to America to penetrate the US market the same way they had done amongst R’n’B fans on our UK shores. But then, the group disbanded.

Still, there was soon relief when we learned that Riley, the group’s former front man, had decided to go solo and had released a free downloadable mixtape, heralding his return to the music scene.

Nine Ten Eleven: The Refixes is a tantalising taster of what we can expect from the new solo star in the future. With a mixture of reworked hits, including Beyoncé’s 1+1, and original material, including my personal favourite, Missing You Too (sung over Drake’s Dreams Money Can Buy), Nine Ten Eleven: The Refixes will have you dancing, reflecting and bopping your head to every one of its 10 tracks.

For the inquisitive among us, Then and Now narrates the story leading to the group’s breakdown and the singer’s frustration with aspects of the music industry.

“This body of work is dedicated to every artist working their a** off trying to make it,” Riley said. “Don't stop! Live good.”

Nine Ten Eleven: The Refixes is a showcase of UK talent at it’s best. Nice work Mr Riley!
