This guy’s already drawn out a name for himself on YouTube for his pretty spectacular covers of pop tracks. This is an original piece of work though and it’s very impressive- there’s some 90’s dark garage vibes to it. Check out here.
Epic-sounding pop. I wish I could say more about this but I don’t know what else to say other than it’s a good song! Check out here.
Flying the flag of both classic British indie and forward thinking progressive electronic music, Troumaca pioneer sounds that have formed from the development of UK bass music fused with tropical riffs, dubby bass lines and big guitar leads and are at the heart of where UK music is heading. Check out here.
This is flamboyant in a very American way and I’m captivated by it. Check out here.
I got the same knots in my stomach when I watched Lianne La Havas’ performance on Jools Holland as I did when I heard Amy Winehouse and Corinne Bailey Rae for the first times. And it’s such a good feeling to have. Im so happy that this talent is around- in me you have a fan! There’s no question that this lady will invade the charts. Check out here.
There’s some buzz kicking about for this Mancunian soul popstrel. There’s a very rich sound coming from this and it’s very well produced. It’s like Rumer with some punch. Check out here.
We have some Danish candy pop for you this morning. Check out here.
Wake up! It’s Saturday! And this is just about the best song to get up to- so feel good! Check out here.
I can’t stop listening to this. Beautifully minimal and uplifting electropop from this Swedish duo. They seem to have been around for a really long time and I won’t be surprised if this song takes them to a bigger audience. Check out here.
… I really don’t. I mean, some of her songs are great- but I don’t believe for one second she’s actually written any of them. Which isn’t a problem, but pretending that you have when you haven’t makes me a bit angry. Anyway, I don’t like making a habit of writing about what I dislike on here, but this remix of Beyoncé’s ‘Countdown’ is very, very good. It’s just pure happiness.
To me, this sounds like pop. But when I try to learn more about the guy behind this music it all got complicated for my simple brain and I gave up, so I can’t give you much history. Sorry. All I know is these aren’t songs- they’re ‘prints’. Check out here.
Can you guess the inspiration behind this? I can… I say Prince and Grace Jones. Which is an amazing blend. I do enjoy Prince. This is very interesting funk. Check out here.
Seeing lots of potential in this. Pure pop! Check out here.
You know, for someone who remembers garage music the first time round, listening to Disclosure and seeing their sound being labelled as ‘future-garage’ makes me feel ancient. Anyway, there’s some very fresh sounds coming out of these guys. Check out here.
Hip hop’s hottest new crooner. Check out here.
I was really into this kind of music in my mid teens, so when I hear The Subways I sort of feel like I should put on some baggy jeans and wrap myself with duck-tape or something [making ‘a statement’]. This track has been A-listed on BBC Radio 1 which is a very huge deal and I can see it’s appeal. They’re already on their third album (which makes me feel old since I’ve only just heard of them now), and they seem to be doing alright for themselves;
“We wrote this track about each and every one of you” exclaims singer Billy Lunn night after night on tour. ‘It’s A Party’, the opener on the album has over the course of the band’s summer exploits across Europe become a (if not the) live favourite culminating with massed frenzy at venues across Europe not least at the band’s recent sold out show at London’s KOKO which witnessed Lunn leaping from a first level balcony into the moshpit…”
