okay(K) – Lucy wrap(s)

Listening to okay(k) debut EP “Lucy wrap(s)” somehow gives me the feeling that despite life being a rollercoaster, things are going to turn out alright… As cliched as it sounds, this EP transmits a grounded sense of acceptance for what is, and the uncertainty of what’s to come. “If you only knew” kicks off this

Caleb Alleyne – City in the Sound: Knoxx

We’re really excited about this one. Up and coming, young music producer Caleb Alleyne has recently released the first of a four-part EP series, titled “City in the Sound: Knoxx”.

Thee Oh Sees – Fortress

The Thee Oh Sees have been around since 1997 and are renowned for their experimental home recordings. You may well approach the track with that idea in mind.

Curren$y – Bottom of the Bottle ft. August Alsina & Lil Wayne

Opening with a guitar riff which isn’t unlike the Red Hot Chilli Peppers’ ‘Under the Bridge’, this latest track from Curren$y reunites him with long term collaborator and fellow New Orleans rapper Lil Wayne. It’s every radio scheduler’s wet dream: young R&B crooner August Alsina brings the soul, the video sees the guys playing spin

Rick Ross – Bill Gates

Bill Gates has been ranked the “Richest Man in the World” sixteen times, so it’s only fitting that Rick Ross, ranked the “Hottest MC in the Game” by MTV, has written a song about him. Rick (a multi-millionaire himself) takes on Gates’ $80 billion lifestyle, drawing parallels between them over a classy, smooth backing track.

Miguel feat Chris Brown & Future – Simple Things

This star studded remix collaboration from Miguel who enlists Chris Brown and Future has found a showcase on his Wildheart album. The lyrically seductive tones of Miguel, blend with those of Chris Brown and Future and ooze from this remix cut like honey and lemon for a sore throat. Beat heavy, this single mixes the

Diplo & Sleepy Tom – Be Right There

This fabulous reconstruction of Jade’s 1992 single Don’t Walk Away, sees Diplo team together with Canadian Sleepy Tom and the soulful vocals of Priscilla Renea to add to the wealth of music he’s already released. Listening to ‘Be Right There’ you will experience a full circle of sounds in one song. You can feel the

Following their 2013 hiatus as a group, they are back with this challenging track that will have you by the killer chorus.  Its cheerful synth-pop creates an

The Vamps – Wake Up

Returning to the charts once more, The Vamps haven’t disappointed with this feel-good anthem that is, without doubt, more grown-up and advanced that anything they’ve released yet. The four piece band of Brad Simpson, James McVey, Tristan Evans and Connor Ball have delivered an Ear Worm that will positively inspire and uplift leaving you pumped
