Wow, wow and WOW! This amazing, stunning piece of dubstep plays on Amy Winehouse‘s ‘No Good‘ and does it so well. My heart skips a beat when I hear stuff like this. This is just the most faultless piece of music I’ve heard in a long time. Stunning! Check out here.

Juan Zelada has already been enjoying slots touring with the likes of Amy Winehouse. Now he’s just become one of the few unsigned artists to be announced as Radio 2’s Record of The Week with his single ‘Breakfast in Spitalfields’. Check out here.

First Watch: Liam Bailey ‘It’s Not The Same’

You may know that I’m a bit of a fan of this guy. Now signed to Amy Winehouse’s label, Liam Bailey’s back with a new single and video. Love.

Flashback: Amy Winehouse (Manchester 2004)

From a gig she played in 2004 at the Manchester Academy while on her first album – Frank, with support from Tyler James. This was the first time I saw her live, and it was the first proper gig I ever brought tickets for.

I nicked a poster for this gig when I was at uni and it’s been on my walls ever since. A few years later, Back to Black was released and well… rest is history!

Until Amy Winehouse comes back, Dionne will fill the void in my soul

Dionne Bromfeld hit the headlines last year when she became the first signing to Amy Winehouse‘ record label, Lioness Records. I didn’t think much of it back then, despite Amy being the one singer who’s held my heart since the early noughties. Now Dionne has a proper single that is actually pretty good. Check out here. Dionne, you’re amazing. Ask Amy to make uncle Alfie happy and chuck a new album for him yea?

Liam Bailey makes amazing.

I’ve featured Liam Bailey on here a couple of times already- and I saw him at Tottenham Court Road station yesterday singing to himself in that cocksure ‘Im going to be big’ kind of way. Of course I didn’t stop him, he probably would have hit me. But it did make me wonder what happened to him- he was meant to release something last month and I didn’t really hear much about it. Anyway, I still don’t know much but I see that he’s now signed to Amy Winehouse’s label, Lioness. And the songs on his’ So Down, Cold’ E.P are pretty amazing. Above is one such song, and you can hear the rest here.

New Music: Lauren Pritchard

Beautiful voice, melody and face all in one. Until Amy Winehouse comes back, I’m glad to have this lady on my iTouch. This is the sort of music Lauryn Hill should be making. Check out here.

New Music: Liam Bailey

This guy is a cross between Amy Winehouse, Nate James and some Daniel Merriweather. And he reminds me a bit of Otis Redding, don’t know why. It’s good. Check out here.

Simply Stunning

I feel like I’ve been hiding under a stone now that I’ve listened to this album. This is just about the best album I’ve heard all year- PERIOD. Seriously, every song… just flawless. Flawless. Going through this album reminded me of how I felt when I listened to Amy Winehouse’ Frank for the first time. Rox is without doubt the British Lauryn Hill. Check out here. Buy it here. This girl deserves points!
