Shannon K – ‘Lose Control’

Booze?

https://soundcloud.com/galaxy-of-stars/lose-control-1

Alcopops!

Composed by Matt Knight and Andy Whitmore, with lyrics from the excellent Rosie Penn, the single is a feel-good treat, capturing the spirit and freedom of the upcoming summer months. It’s the first time Shannon has released a single with such pure, summer vibes, and the infectious melodies and great production very much get you in the mood for the sunshine.

The quality of her songs, which was there from the very beginning, only improves with each single release. It should come as no surprise to learn that she grew up with a parent who knows what it takes to make it in the music industry.

Capture

A glittering career as a vocalist in Bollywood has seen her father Kumar Sanu win a total of 69 awards including 64 in his native India (from Filmfare, Zee Cine, Kishore Kumarand more) plus 5 internationally (from Sunrise Radio-London, West Indian Academy, Grammy-West Indies, Bollywood Music-U.S.A. and Radio Lotus-South Africa).

But now, thanks to her developing mainstream sound and with many years ahead of her, Shannon K has every chance of eclipsing all those accolades – and with more top pop singles on the way, we wouldn’t bet against her.

Innovative Rapper 2Nice Unleashes the ‘Sunlight’ with Latest Track

10153723_742252632461722_7642575485299275733_n

Booze?

Cocktail!

Astoundingly versatile in his songwriting skills, London singer/songwriter, rapper and fusion artist, 2Nice is the kind of artist that only comes along every once in a while. His incredible fusion of reggae, pop, hip-hop and drum ‘n’ bass has been setting him apart for several years now, building true credibility in the underground urban scene.

Since winning the 2008 award for ’UK Unsigned Best Reggae/Dancehall Act’,  2Nice’s momentum and reputation has been growing thanks to his innate talent for bringing together and blending styles. His buzz is such that urban music royalty are sitting up and taking notice, with fans and collaborators including Congo Natty, Luciano, Tinie Tempah, Dizzie Rascal, Wiley, Mark Morrison and more.

All the more impressive, 2Nice does all this while suffering the debilitating effects of epilepsy. Using music in his everyday battle to overcome the condition, 2Nice finds the creative process soothing – allowing him to turn his thoughts away from an illness he has found it hard to come to terms with.

With his genuinely unique blend of genres, ‘Sunlight’ is just the first assault 2Nice is readying for the mainstream UK music industry this year. Hold on to your hats for 2015.

Gritty and raw while still having a polished sheen, ‘Sunlight’ is a single which could well see 2Nice break through from cult status to the mainstream. It’s truly impressive work from a brave and innovative artist not afraid to try new things.

Scarlet small

Booze!? Tequila!

A huge fan, Head of Absolute Radio James Curran had this to say following a recent blockbusting performance at Hard Rock Rising in London:

“By far the best female vocal we have seen in this competition!”

BBC Introducing Oxford have debuted Cruel Love already with DJ Dave Gilyeat saying “this track should be in the charts”! Add to that Kat Orman of BBC Oxford labelling her ‘One To Watch’ in 2015 and the stars are aligning for Scarlet Baxter.

Single ‘Cruel Love’, released on July 20th, will no doubt continue to win over fans with its superb production values and slick pop sound:

“Scarlet has no fear and has clear goals to make 2015 her year” – Mark Boardman (Music Journalist).

Described by Cigarette Sounds as “the next woman of pop”, Scarlet Baxter’s rise has been meteoric. Working consistently in a tight knit team with talented guitarist Dominic Ireland and co-writers, John McLaughlin, Judd Mahoney & Natalie DeLucia, Scarlet has derived an entire catalogue of original material in only a year. The team specialise in catchy, radio ready tunes with genuine feel good factor – as proven by excellent previous singles ‘Backsliding’, ‘Stuck’ and ‘Down With It’.

Booze?

cider!

The LaFontaines – the UK’s finest party band – will release their much anticipated debut album ‘Class’on Monday 8th June via 889 Records with an extensive UK headline tour to mark its release. Plus, the band has announced the first of many festival slots at this year’s T in the Park – performing on the Main Stage and highlighting just how far #Fontmania has come in a such a short space of time.

Starting with their debut single release (‘All She Knows’) via LAB Records, the band played their first headline shows in New York in April, supported All Time Low in Glasgow (2500 capacity) and released their second single, ‘Under The Storm’:  to widespread airplay (Radio 1, Kerrang!, XFM Scotland, TeamRock Radio plus a plethora of UK Regional Stations) and UK wide press coverage.  The year culminated in their biggest headline sold out show to date at Glasgow’s ABC in October (1300 capacity) as well as a tour of the UK and Europe with Watsky.

Tour dates kick off on 26th May and are detailed below. Tickets are available now fromwww.seetickets.com or www.ticketmaster.co.uk

Cherry White set to precede new EP ‘Staring at the Sun’ with stylish single ‘Drifter’

Booze?

Cider!

The EP is led out of the gate by single ‘Drifter’, which will be released on June 1st, one week prior to the full EP.

Currently building a buzz with their live shows in and around London, Cherry White have now taken to the studio to record a brand new EP, ‘Staring at the Sun’. Inspired by life in London during this austerity era, surrounded by the greed of the wealthy, the tracks circle around an aspiration to reach higher and achieve their goals in the music industry and beyond.

Folding the old school songwriting smarts of Fleetwood Mac into the contemporary edge of the Raconteurs, London based four piece Cherry White are an immediately impressive proposition. Their in your face indie-blues sound is highlighted by great hooks and high energy, blending genres in a way that sets them apart from more pigeonholed bands.

Engineered at Bark Studios by the excellent Brian O’Shaughnessy (Primal Scream, The Firm, My Bloody Valentine), the EP does a fantastic job of capturing the frenetic energy of a band who thrive on a live environment.

And with the single and EP on the way, Cherry White will be working harder than ever to make sure that reputation continues to grow into the music career they deserve.

Former Deptford market traders set to make Jason Statham pop sensation.

Shirt-White 03logo

BOOZE!?

BEERS!

The next step is to make sure Jason knows about the release and this is the challenge with his new movie ‘SPY’ on the horizon , it is now down to the Men with Ven to do all they can to set up a meeting with the movie icon, they have numerous plans in the pipeline from flashmobs to lookalikes but all the guys really want is the thumbs up from the man himself, they have therefore put together a tribute video with which they intend to reach out and attract his attention and from there who knows ! maybe even get him to appear in the real video and truly help Mr.Statham to hit the pop charts and the movie box office charts at the same time.

Check out the video: 

‘A few weeks ago we found ourselves back in the neighbourhood at the Birds Nest. After a couple of beers Carl had the bright idea of conducting an informal survey in the pub asking, who was the greatest British Actor of the last 50 years? We were pleased and surprised that the most popular choice that evening was the king of market-stall and marshall arts – Jason Statham. Carl was intrigued but not completely convinced that this was a fair representation of the voice of the people and so conducted some further research in the area. In all, after getting over 350 responses, he found that Statham was more popular than Michael Caine , Sean Connery and Sir Laurence Olivier put together.’

Johnny Wore Black Double Single – ‘Firefly’ / ‘Comfy Slippers’

The latest fruit of this labour is the double A side single ‘Firefly’/’Comfy Slippers’, which will be independently released on June 15th. You can see the stunning animated video for ‘Firefly’ below, with sketchy, monochrome visuals augmenting a classy song about facing your own personal demons head on and the inherent challenges therein.

The singles are both taken from current Johnny Wore Black album ‘Walking Underwater Part 2’. Available now, it followed debut LP ‘Walking Underwater Part 1’ as a double whammy of albums released in 2014 to excellent reviews. ‘Part 2’ sees Johnny Wore Black continue to evolve his unique energy and song writing style, with an intense, passionate lyrical style.

On hearing the singles and the album as a whole it should come as no surprise that this acerbic brand of indie-rock already has fans among music’s top table. Notable followers of Jonny Wore Black include Tim Simenon (Bomb The Bass), Danny Bigfoot (Shanks and Bigfoot), Loretta Heywood (Winter in July), David Ellefson (Megadeth), Simon Hutchby (Earthtone 9) and more.

David Ellefson chose to work alongside Johnny Wore Black on production duties, as did Grammy Award Winner David Bottrill. The fact that such storied veterans of the business believe in the music of Johnny Wore Black goes some way to confirming the potential of this unusually dark artist.

In the words of David Ellefson himself:

“Johnny Wore Black has a very unique sound that I like and as an artist creating a unique sound is one of the hardest things to do, you either have it or you don’t and to me Johnny Wore Black definitely has it.”

Crazy Fenton making some noise with ‘Cool Ella’ single

A welcome throwback to the golden ages of punk and rock, Crazy Fenton is the musical brainchild of songwriter Clive Aliker – a Norfolk based artist who is a big fan of making a good old fashioned ruckus. With influences from 60s garage rock and 70s punk all the way through to the modern day, Crazy Fenton is the work of a veteran musician who certainly knows how to rattle out a top tune.

20150203_110526

Having worked with renowned producer Dave Allen (The Cure, Human League, Chameleons) to arrive at an energetic studio style, the new single ‘Cool Ella’ is set for release on June 22nd. High energy and built on a foundation of distorted guitars and pounding drums, this is one for fans of the classics.

‘Cool Ella’ is one hell of a way to come out fighting, and with the follow up album due a couple of weeks later on July 13th, you will be hearing a lot more of Crazy Fenton in 2015. The album, produced by British EDM trailblazer Alex Banks (EZ Rollers), is the kind of release which will have the music industry on high alert with its raw song writing and production values.

With lyrics inspired – in Clive Aliker’s own words – by ‘deaths,mental failings,and a complete inability to understand the female species’, these are songs that listeners can’t fail to relate to.

And in ‘Cool Ella’, Crazy Fenton has picked out one hell of an entrance.
