Azealia Banks and Pharrell Williams – #ATMJAM (2013 Glastonbury Teaser)

Azealia Banks Glastonbury

This could be a massive song from Azealia Banks when it’s released… This teaser from Glastonbury is just mean – I want it all!

Stop what you’re doing…

This is indescribably mad. You’ll either love or hate this remix of Azealia Banks by Mister Gray, but it’s a free download. Just don’t operate any heavy machinery while you’re listening to it- your brains will probably blow up.

Lana Del Rey ‘Blue Jeans ft. Azealia Banks (Smims&Belle Extended Remix)’

Smims & Belle is the the DJ group from Mark Foster and band member Isom Innis. The track is a new verse that Azealia recorded specifically for this remix.

Take a jazz singer and let him have a go on Azealia Banks’ ‘212’

Jamie cullum did it first years ago with his cover of ‘Frontin’ by N*E*R*D, and it hasn’t really been done since. Then I see this cover by Wouter Hamel, a Dutch jazz/pop crossover artist. It felt  a bit wrong but it comes out good in the end. I think…

Not to sound sad but this is one of my favourite moments of the year- when the BBC Sound of 2012 list is revealed. If you are unaware of how important this list of musicians is, check out the same list from 2011 and see how many predictions are household names now. This list is a big, big deal- so get used to the names this year because you’ll be hearing from them a lot in the next twelve months. The list is compiled by music bigshots. The top five will be revealed in the week commencing 2 January. Here’s the full list:

I’m proud of the number of artists on that list that I featured before… Boasting over and done with now!

New Music: Azealia Banks

Be warned, don’t be tricked into thinking this is a cuddly song from the picture- this song is a bit filthy. If Missy Elliott was current, this is what she would sound like. There’s a very strong, fresh, dirty New York beat to this. Check out here.
