First Listen: Ifan Dafydd ‘Llonydd’

Ifan Dafydd

Something ethereal and lovely from Ifan Dafydd.


First Listen: Devlin ‘Love Cards’ feat Etta Bond


One of my favourite MC’s and one of my favourite new female vocalists get together in this track, out on May 6th. It’s a little bit epic.

First Listen: NONONO ‘Pumpin Blood’


One of my favourite tunes of the week. Swedish electro pop that has lots of whistling in it and so is just basically brilliant.

First Listen: Black Light Dinner Party ‘Lift Away’

black light dinner party

It’s been snowing in London today, which is a bit of a weird situation that I don’t think Londoners are used to in April. But anyway, this little gem of electropop from Black Light Dinner Party has a nice glow around it which seems just about right to listen to at this time of night.

First Listen: Say Lou Lou ‘Julian’

Saint Lou Lou have changed their name to Say Lou Lou and come out with a beautiful new piece of pop.

First Listen: Naughty Boy & Sam Smith ‘La La La’

Sam Smith’s voice graces the new single from Naughty Boy. Nice.

First Listen: Kristine Mirelle ‘Over and Over’

Kristine Mirelle

New one from Kristine Mirelle. I find her voice pretty distinctive and her tracks show heaps of potential.

First Listen: Caught A Ghost ‘No Sugar In My Coffee’

Caught A Ghost

I have a fondness for this neo-soul act. It’s a sexy, perfected sound that still manages to sound pretty raw.  Caught A Ghost will release a special version of their debut EP ‘Nightworks’ on April 8th.

First Listen: Har Mar Superstar ‘Lady, You Shot Me’

har mar superstar

I’m a fan of Har Mar Superstar. His brand of pop is incredibly infectious, and although it’s not always amazing to listen to, every now and again he comes out with something huge like that puts a massive smile on my face.

Mutya Keisha Siobhan!

Mutya Keisha Siobhan

A little surprise for the afternoon courtesy of ex-Sugababes Mutya Keisha Siobhan. It’s a mash up between a new track and Kendrick Lamar’s Swimming Pools.

First Listen: Beatrice Eli ‘Violent Silence’

beatrice eli

Another epic pop track from Swedish Beatrice Eli. Debut EP ‘It’s Over’ is out on March 24th.

First Listen: Mercedes ‘Cool For Me’

Mercedes singer

I’m not sure what I think of this new one from Mercedes. Maybe it’s because I haven’t heard anything quite like it. I think it’ll be a grower.

First Listen: Fou De Toi ‘Heartless’

Fou De Toi

I’m a little in love with this new track from Sweden’s Fou De Toi. It’s a cute little indie pop number.

First Listen: Lulu Rouge ‘Sign Me Out’

lulu rouge

I don’t know much about Lulu Rouge but this Danish duo have come up with a seriously handsome piece of broody electropop.

First Listen: Saturday, Monday ‘The Ocean’ (feat. Julia Spada)

saturday monday ocean

This new track from Swedish electro outfit Saturday, Monday is a bit depressing but it’s also pretty nice to listen to.

First Listen: Fyfe ‘St Tropez’


I’ve rarely seen someone take the blogosphere by storm as much as I have with Fyfe. Anyway, he’s back with this gorgeous track which hops around playfully between the minimal and the epic.

First Listen: Dan Croll ‘Compliment Your Soul’

dan croll

A new indie/ afrobeat sound for Dan Croll’s new track, out in April.
