One of my favourite soloists to emerge of late. Give this album sampler by Josh Kumra a spin. It’s out tomorrow.
Im really expecting this track by Josh Kumra to blow up next year, and this live version filmed at the Shepherds Bush Empire down the road from me is proof.
A remix to what is looking to be a big track for 2013 by label-of-the-moment Black Butter Records’ Cinematic.
One of my favourite British artists to come out of 2012 has been Josh Kumra. This is his new video, and the track is pretty special. I just wish people were a bit more appreciative of experimental pop like this. His time will come though when this is released in January 2013- I’m sure of it.
Earlier this week Josh Kumra ran a special twitter initiative to allow fans to get their profile pictures featured on a limited edition 7″ of his debut single ‘Helicopters & Planes’. Once the cover was full it unlocked a free three track acoustic EP, ‘The Soho Sessions’.
One of my favourite songs this month- it’s insanely powerful pop. This is the video to accompany the video. I really do want all of you to be fans of Josh Kumra – some serious talent here. The single will be released July 15th on RCA.
Josh Kumra is one of the most exciting kids to come out of 2012 so far for me, and his magnificent debut single Helicopters & Planes (with U.S.G member K Koke guesting) is amazing. Produced by the man of the moment Naughty Boy, it sees Josh deliver a slice of distinctly UK hip hop soul.
I get so excited when I hear new UK talent like this. I really don’t see this former backing singer for Omar and Rhian Benson not making it into the mainstream! She’s been building a name for herself over the past year covering popular songs by the likes of Lil’ Wayne and Wretch 32, and by releasing two singles, ‘Heartbreaker’ and ‘Save You’. Now she’s released mixtape with a cover of Labrinth‘s ‘Last Time’ as well as six new tracks tracks of her own. Check out here.
