First Listen: Duke Dumont feat MNEK ‘Hold On’

Wow! This follow up from Duke Dumont cannot be faulted. Whether it’ll get as big as ‘Need U (100%)‘ got, I’m not sure but this is class.

Rudimental – Baby (feat. MNEK & Sinead Harnett)

rudimental home album

Huge fan of all three of the above. There is nothing to fault with this track whatsoever. That’s all. Taken from Rudimental’s upcoming album, ‘Home’ out 29th April.

MNEK takes on Janet Jackson and it’s good…


The pop prodigy that is MNEK has done a ridiculously amazing refix of Janet Jackson’s ‘That’s The Way Love Goes’. And it’s a free download.

Sunday disco with Duke Dumont and A*M*E

Well this is pretty delicious. Featuring 17 year-old starlet A*M*E* on singing duties, this has classic house all over it. Co-written by teenage wonder-kid and Alfitude favourite MNEK (who recently sung on Rudimental’s ‘Spoons’ with Syron) the Duke will release ‘Need U (100%)’ on his newly minted Blasé Boys Club label.

New Music: Rudimental

Rudimental make a fresh and unique sound that mixes soul with pretty much everything else to make something pretty special. Check out here.

New Music: A*M*E*

This is a fun bit of new pop worked on by musical prodigy of the moment MNEK. Check out here.

Free Download: MNEK ‘If He’s The One’

I love the lyrics to this free track from pop prodigy MNEK. And follow his Twitter, it’s bare jokes.

Interview: Quickfire with MNEK

You probably know who MNEK is by now, I’ve mentioned him on here a couple of times because he’s pretty awesome. He’s basically like a pop child prodigy. I had the opportunity to shoot some questions at him, and he had the opportunity to shoot some answers back…

MNEK… hello… how are you right now?

How’s the response been to your new single?
Good, thankfully. I got mistaken for Paije Richardson again, though.

When did you start writing your tunes?
I was 9.

How did you end up working with the Saturdays on ‘All Fired Up’?
Two words. Brian Higgins.

Are you writing stuff for any other stars?
I write for moons :)

What’s next?
Much more!!!!
And that’s it. Told ya it was quickfire. On another note, his twitter gives me jokes.

First Watch: MNEK ‘If Truth Be Told’

I’ve been a bit obsessed with MNEK for a while now. Anyway, this song is not new, but it’s been reworked and is getting a proper release that an amazing tune like this deserves. He’s also co-written current crazy hit ‘All Fired Up’ by The Saturdays which is top 10 in the UK charts at the moment.

You know what I like about him? He puts enough fun in his pop without it sounding like something out of a CBeebies show. Check him out!

New Music: MNEK

Before I ran this blog, I shared one with my ex-wifey called Baby Sonic Trap. It didn’t last very long. Anyway, Mnek was one of the artists I featured on that old blog, and I kind of forgot about it for a while but his song, ‘If Truth Be Told’ came on my iTouch yesterday and I remembered just how fun this guy is. He’s only a teenager- something like 15 or 16 maybe? But so so good! Check out here.
