First Listen: Lovelife ‘Heaven’

Record of the week. New icy-cold, synthy pop gem from Lovelife. The new EP, ‘The Fourth Floor’ is out December 10th.


First Listen: Jessie J ‘Silver Lining’

What do we think with this new Jessie J track? Hard to believe she was featured here as a new artist just two years ago to the month.

First Listen: Richard Osborne ‘Better’

New cut from Richard Osborne that’s reminiscent of old-school N*E*R*D.

First Listen: Rebel Rebel ‘Project Runway’

Dreamy, synthy single from Sweden’s new disco pop outfit Rebel Rebel.

First Listen: Katy Tiz ‘Famous’

Katy Tiz has been on my radar for some time, and it’s nice to see that her debut is a pretty decent pop track. Where it leads to I’m not sure- I think it’s a bit premature writing up a song about fame from a newcomer (although it does end in a ‘Im not famous anyway’ line), but it’s good nonetheless.

First Listen: Swiss Lips ‘Something In The Water’

A little Saturday afternoon disco courtesy of Swiss Lips.

First Listen: Fenech-Soler ‘All I Know’

I’ve always been a bit on the fence with Fenech-Soler, but this song is close to brilliance.

First Listen: Soso ‘The Girl And You’

This is so different and brilliant, I just have to share it with you. Swedish Soso is back with a new track that is indescribably quirky and cool at the same time.

First Listen: Holy Ghost! ‘It Gets Dark’

One of my favourite electro duo’s of the year have come up with another stomper of a track.

First Listen: Icona Pop ‘Good For You’

New music from Icona Pop! How can you not love these two cute Swedes? Anyway, Iconic EP is out now.

First Listen: Rudimental feat Alex Clare ‘Not Giving In’

So another week begins, and there’s nothing more motivating to start the day than with an epic bit of noise by Rudimental and Alfitude favourite, Alex Clare. Happy Monday.

First Listen: Lulu James ‘Be Safe’


Something slow and gorgeous to end the week with. I’m a big fan of Lulu James so it’s exciting to hear a new song.

First Listen: Fleur ‘Turn The Lights On’

I’m a little bit of a fan of this lady. Fleur has a new single co-written and produced by Culture Shock which is pretty decent!

First Listen: Olly Murs ‘Troublemaker’

One of the UK’s most harmless pop stars, Olly Murs, is back with a new track with Flo Rida (who I’m personally SICK OF), but the song is catchy as hell. Out November 18th.

First Listen: Loreen ‘Crying Out Your Name’

I nearly wet myself when I found out that Loreen released a new track- out October 8th. This lady only has a handful of tracks out on the web despite her enormous win at Eurovision 2012. Anyway, enjoy. Can’t wait for the album, Heal. The tracklist is as follows:

01. In My Head
02. My Heart Is Refusing Me
03. Everytime
04. Euphoria
05. Crying Out ​​Your Name
06. Do We Even Matter
07. Sidewalk
08. Sober
09. If She’s The One
10. Breaking Robotic
11. See You Again
12. Heal (feat. Blanks)

First Listen: Look, Stranger! ‘Ithaca’

This is as quirky as synth pop can get, from Look, Stranger! It’s cheerful.

First Listen: Ruby Goe ‘Sq1’

This is as current and fresh as it comes. Released October 29th 2012, I’m hoping the world wakes up to the genius of Ruby Goe by then because it really is a short matter of time before she becomes radio’s best friend.

First Listen: Maxsta ‘Pop Off’

Fresh from the ridiculous success of ‘I Wanna Rock’ and his Adidas Originals performance during the Olympics (also featuring Wretch 32), upcoming grime artist Maxsta will release his next single ‘Pop Off’ on 22nd October.

First Listen: Misha B ‘Do You Think Of Me’

The background to this track sends me back to the 90s. It’s an epic pop track from a girl who’s won me over from her X Factor UK days.

First Listen: Kymberley Kennedy ‘Wonderland’

This is a very sexy pop track from Kymberley Kennedy. Shame it’s only a clip because I’m pretty sure the full track sounds pretty interesting.
