First Watch: Elsie ‘The Assassin (Bang Bang)’

I featured Elsie a few months back, this is her debut video. Can’t get enough of that voice.

First Watch: DJ Fresh ft. Rita Ora ‘Hot Right Now’

Following his #1 smash hit ‘Louder’ – one of 2011’s biggest-selling singles – DJ Fresh is back with his new single ‘Hot Right Now’, featuring the vocal talents of Rita Ora.

First Watch: Riva Starr & Fatboy Slim (feat. Beardyman) ‘Get Naked’

I keep watching this video over and over. It’s the new Fatboy Slim/ Riva Starr single.

First Watch: Ghostpoet feat The D.O.T ‘Trouble’

On Wednesday 30th November Ghostpoet and The D.O.T. took to the stage at Village Underground for the third RizLab project to take-part in the world’s first live interactive music video shoot for the collaborative track ‘Trouble’.

After Ghostpoet and The D.O.T. asked fans to send in trouble making suggestions, the online audience voted for various multiple choice options in real time. The artists were faced with a Yeti in a snowstorm, bad disco dancers, a cheerleading quartet, a choreographed boy band and a homage to the Stonehenge scene from Spinal Tap. Watch it and read more here!

First Watch: Major Lazer ‘Original Don’ ft. The Partysquad

This video went live on the 8th and it’s got over 364,000 hits already. I can’t stop watching it…

First Watch: Yelle ‘Comme Un Enfant’

I haven’t talked about my French obsession for some time so I thought it would be nice to show you her new video. Still quirky and edgy and funny.

First Watch: Tanya Lacey ‘Letter To My Ex’

I remember getting a dodgy looking email introducing me to Tanya Lacey not too long ago. I was impressed and blogged about it straight away. I remember emailing back asking for more- a link to a site or at least a picture. I didn’t get anything back and I had to improvise. Now she’s got a proper video through Sony Records and like I’d said before, the throwback to the 90’s thing works very well.

First Watch: Amy Winehouse ‘Our Day Will Come’

This is the official tribute video for the new Amy Winehouse single. It’s sad and lovely at the same time, and makes you realise how much of a talent was lost. The album’s out next month.

First Watch: Duran Duran ‘Girl Panic!’

There’s been a lot of talk about this video (in the UK anyway)- not just because it’s Duran Duran but because the video features some of fashion’s biggest models- Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Eva Herzigova, Helena Christensen and Yasmin Le Bon– faking a ‘super group’. It’s fun to watch, and the song’s good too.

First Watch: Bekele ‘Popstitute’

Almost a year ago I featured one of New York’s hottest up-and-coming starlets, Bekele. Now she’s come back with this, and as far as début videos go, this is pretty spectacular. The new Gaga? Very, very possibly. A glitter micro/cock is just genius. But what’s even better is the song’s available as a free download on the site- check out here.

First Watch: Friendly Fires ‘Hurting’

The first 30 seconds of this track are so painfully vibey and cool. This is the new video from my favourite band of recent years, Friendly Fires. Don’t leave, don’t leave, don’t leeeeeaaaave…

First Watch: Jon Ink ‘Every Little Inch’

Previously featured on here a few weeks ago, Swedish Jon Ink is back with a new video. It’s crazy catchy- this kid really needs a big record deal! He’s also acting as a guestjudge in Webjokern, the swedish eurovision song contest 2012.

First Watch: Spiro ‘Hurricane’

Début video from up and coming popster Spiro, previously featured on here a few weeks back. Find out more here.

First Listen: Wolfette ‘Trophy Girl’

Wolfette’s new single ‘Trophy Girl’ is set to be released on 5th December. It’s a piece of cheeky electropop with some kick.

First Watch: Sway ‘Still Speedin’

The return of one of the UK’s biggest MC’s is here, and this track is HUGE. The official video came out last week and features a cameo from magician Dynamo and puts Sway firmly back in the driving seat (gettit?)… Check out here.

First Watch: Duck Sauce ‘Big Bad Wolf’

One of the best videos of the year by a mile! Hope it doesn’t put you off your lunch!

First Watch: Niki & The Dove ‘The Drummer’

Niki & The Dove was featured here long, long before many people started to realise her amazingness. This is her new single and it is sick. The beats just melt like butter. Check out here.

First Watch: The Ting Tings ‘Hang It Up’

I have to be honest, I thought The Ting Tings would be a one-hit-wonder. However, this is their new single and although I really have no idea if anyone will buy it, it’s pretty amazing. The drums remind me of the intro to Dizzee Rascal’s ‘Fix Up Look Sharp‘. They haven’t lost their touch.

First Watch: Filur ‘Concentrate!’

I don’t know much about Filur but they seem to be big in their native Denmark- I just love the song (when it kicks in at the 2:45 mark). Check out here.

First Watch: Visions of Trees ‘Sirens (Novocaine)’

One of my favourite songs by this duo. They’ve announced a tour for the autumn (so like… now). Check out here.
