Lykke Li – still sad, still sexy ep

The MONSTA is getting bigger and bigger…

So MONSTA were featured some time ago. I’ve been a fan since realising that the lead singer was Bryn Christopher, who I was slighly obsessed with from his solo days. Anyway, they’re now signed to Skrillex‘s OWSLA label’s and this is their new video for single ‘Holdin On’ (released October 22nd). It’s a brilliant mix of dubstep and soul.

Kaskade + Skrillex

This has been online for a few months now but it’s due to blow up in the next month, so here you go. I can’t think of a better tune to feed your ears with on a cold summer Friday morning than this.

Skrillex comes in fourth on BBC Sound of 2012

I must say, I’m not a huge fan of American DJ Skrillex, but he’s come fourth for the BBC’s Sound of 2012.

BBC Sound of 2012 revealed!

Not to sound sad but this is one of my favourite moments of the year- when the BBC Sound of 2012 list is revealed. If you are unaware of how important this list of musicians is, check out the same list from 2011 and see how many predictions are household names now. This list is a big, big deal- so get used to the names this year because you’ll be hearing from them a lot in the next twelve months. The list is compiled by music bigshots. The top five will be revealed in the week commencing 2 January. Here’s the full list:

I’m proud of the number of artists on that list that I featured before… Boasting over and done with now!
