On A Mission
This London dance-music fixture is only now taking her remarkably confident debut to the States. She's an ideal ambassador from her homeland's ever-expanding groove universe, with a diva-next-door voice that brings every body-moving subgenre her producers serve up - from bleeding-edge dubstep and so-called U.K. funky to good old-fashioned house and jungle - into the pop realm. Katy is even more formidable as a songwriter, crafting a dozen first-person club-life stories packed with tons of relatable detail: "Standing at the bar with my friend Olivia/We were trying our best to catch up," she sings on "Easy Please Me," sounding like someone anyone would want to party with till sunup.
