Tom Bem – Captain

Electronica artist Tom Ben with ‘Captain’ is surely radio bound. South-East London are, and always have been, nurturing talent and Tom Ben is certainly no exception. He marks a wave of indie, electronic singer/songwriter/producers that all follow in James Blake’s relatively newly paved path. Alex Turner may have been...

SecondCity & Tyler Rowe – I Entr

I Entr is everything I would have expected from a Dirtybird release. Bassy stomps and fragmented vocals. This one is a dancefloor destroyer. Mark my words, along with Route 94, it’ll be no time before SecondCity hits the commercial realm – his production technique is faultless. Soundcloud | Twitter |...

Lily Allen’s Ridiculous Album Title

Sheezus is the name of Lily Allen’s new LP. As Glamour reports, the singer-rapper confirmed the title on the episode of BBCs Graham Norton’s Show airing last night before she performed her new single ‘Air Balloon’. “It’s a confident title choice,” she said, “and a little nod towards Kanye West”.  

Jack Beats – Beatbox

Jack Beats were my first love. I remember going to Fabric several times just to see their sets and they have never disappointed. That was a couple of years ago and they’ve since been championing moombahton and trap – not my kind of stuff at all. Beatbox is a huge...

Shura – Touch

Ed Thomas – Let It Take/Outlaws

I can’t quite grasp why Ed Thomas isn’t more popular, he’s already a finished product. With a meagre 1000 followers on Soundcloud, it’s proof that the number of followers you have, may not exactly be a true testament of ability. ‘Let It Take’s’ composition reminds me of a Blondie...

Elsie – Crying (Silent Whisper)

I’ve been getting into singer/songwriters recently and this record absolutely stands above almost everything I’ve listened to recently. Powerful in its lyrics and vocals alike and fine-tuned with respects to production, I’m a little surprised at its success, well, lack of. Deserves a lot more recognition and I’m sure...
