New Music: Downside

With a sound that mixes dirty beats with a catchy chorus, Downside have created the perfect sound that has seen them perform to fans all over the UK including supporting 50 Cent at Birmingham NEC to a crowd of over 30,000. Made up of Dean Moxam and Sean Mcleod, Downside made their mark on the music scene in 2006 with their underground classic Moneyman featuring on MTV Base and reaching number one on the Channel U charts, staying in the top 20 for 3 consecutive months. Since then they have received airplay on national radio stations Kiss FM and Radio 1 xtra as well as being broadcast on stations in the US, Germany and France.  Check out here.

Capital FM goes national today…

Capital FM, once London’s largest commercial pop radio station, went national today in a bid to compete with BBC Radio 1. It’s the first of it’s kind in the UK, aiming to reach 6.5 million listeners weekly. In reality though, it’s just a bit of a name change for several outer-London radio stations owned by Global Radio. Each region will still have it’s own staple of local DJ’s, but I suppose all the regions will share the same playlist. Should be interesting.

First Listen: Jamiroquai ‘White Knuckle Ride’ (Full Version)

Above is the full version of White Knuckle Ride. Yea! Also, you’ve got 6 days left to listen to Jamiroquai on BBC Radio 1. Skip to the 1hr55 mark to hear the interview and 2hr22 to hear the full song again. Funky to the max. Check out some clips from his recent London gig here.
