It’s not out til September but this should keep you going til then. I didn’t think Example could sound better than his last effort but it sounds killer.
This is about drugs, isn’t it?
I saw Plan B at London’s Mean Fiddler in July 2006, with Example supporting. The place was packed but at the time neither of these guys were well known- Plan B didn’t release his multi-platinum selling ‘The Defamation of Strickland Banks’ and Example didn’t release ‘Won’t Go Quietly’ til 2010. At the time, both were promoting … Continue reading Flashback: Plan B and Example (London 2006)

Ji Nilsson has been one of the more exciting Scandi talents to have emerged in the last year. Take this track as an example – throwback RnB with some soft electro mixed into an ethnic vibe. I really want a remix of this.

Irrespective, I’ve had a chance to listen to new record ‘I Never Learn’ (out 5th May) and for the most part, it’s just beautiful. There’s … Continue reading Thoughts on Lykke Li’s ‘I Never Learn’

I was lucky enough to catch a few tracks (including upcoming single ‘Squeeze’) by Man Like Me at Mike Skinner’s relaunch of The Beats label- the same label that first discovered and signed up Professor Green and Example. The man’s obviously got an eye for talent!

So everyone’s doing their lists for 2011. They’re fun to read but a nightmare to compile, so I thought I’d shake it up a bit with my list by using some really rather pointless categories. 2011’s Most Painfully Cool Woodkid – This is one of those ‘hidden loves’ I have who I don’t really blog about … Continue reading 2011’s Random List
