This has to be the cutest remix I’ll hear all week, I reckon. It’s S-Type playing around with AlunaGeorge’s new single.

This is my favourite Disney song EVER and now it’s had the AlunaGeorge treatment. LOVE LOVE LOVE. Good morning all.

Disclosure + AlunaGeorge = White Noise

I can’t think of a better way to get the week started than listening to this blissful bit of noise from two of the UK’s biggest buzz acts, Disclosure and AlunaGeorge.

AlunaGeorge put their own spin on Frank Ocean‘s ‘Thinkin Bout You’ for BBC Radio 1Xtra last week and it just sounds epic and cute and sexy all at the same time.

AlunaGeorge are runners up on BBC’s Sound of 2013

I expected AlunaGeorge to do well for the BBC Sound of 2013. Previously featured back in February 2011, the next twelve months are set to be huge for the duo. The winner of the poll is announced tomorrow.

BBC Sound of 2013 longlist announced!

sound of 2013 longlist

The BBC has just released it’s Sound of 2013 list of artists. Over the years, this has proven to be one of the most accurate predictors of who’s likely to become a household name (in the UK at least) over the next twelve months, and it’s personally a very exciting thing to see. The list is compiled by the UK’s most influential music industry tastemakers, who were each asked to note their favourite emerging artists.

While I’m familiar with all the acts on these long lists by the time they are published, I do not necessarily agree with all the talent in them (that’s the great thing about music).

Still, every year I like to benchmark this blog against the list to see how many acts I’ve championed, and I’m chuffed to see that most of these artists have been featured on Alfitude over the past year or two (although some of these posts are already so old the sound clips may not be active any more):

Other acts on the longlist also include:

  • HAIM
  • Kodaline
  • Little Green Cars
  • Palma Violets
  • Peace
  • Savages

Overall, I think this year’s list covers a much more varied and promising selection of talent compared to 2012, and it’ll be interesting to see who wins. The top five acts will begin to be revealed during the week of 31st December 2012.

Until then, I haven’t made my mind up who will make the shortlist just yet- who would you like to see win?

AlunaGeorge ‘Your Drums, Your Love (Friendly Fires Remix)’

One of those rare moments that Friendly Fires remix someone else, this occasion being AlunaGeorge (who are pretty special themselves). Nice

First Watch: AlunaGeorge ‘You Know You Like It’

I’m 27 years old, but I feel about 15 when I hear this new track from AlunaGeorge. Love it. ‘You Know You Like It’ is out this week on Super Recordings.

Free Download: AlunaGeorge ‘Analyser’ (Last Japan’s Buy Me A Spaceship and Fly Remix)

I’ve blogged about AlunaGeorge on here before, I really think they’re ones to watch. Fusing the current desire for wild electronic productions and a pop sensibility that everyone enjoys.
