TheGoldenFilter

i have no idea how i stumbled into her, but i think shes great, kinda reminds me of what goldfrapp used to be, but has more of a subtle dance vibe. the potential to blow up is massive! love the this track "Solid Gold"

GIFT OF GAB

so the new Gift Of Gab album came in the other day, and to my silly little knowledge(respect), this is the main guy from Blackalicious, as a kid i was a massive fan of the album "Blazing Arrow", had the best summer track on "Make You Feel That Way"

back to "Escape 2 Mars", its great, its what you'd expect from such a clever writer. catchy and some pure stand out track on there. this guy has one of the most iconic voices in Hip Hop, the second you hear it you know who it is. Stand out tracks being "Rhyme Travel", "Somathapeople" and "Light Years" any old school hip hop fan this is a must have

Uffie

Uffie is back, new single, similar sound. but for once its all pretty good, normally you'd get a great beat, and she'd do something really bad over the top or vis versa, but this time its spot on! just a great fun track. its been ages since "ready to uff" came out, and then re releasing "pop the glock", crowd fave, but not one of mine, it just seemed that she'd dried up... but don't worry, she hasnt! check out "MCs Can Kiss"

Do you want the truth...



Or something beautiful?

Widower rocked Dark Party a while back, and happen to be blessed by having DPs' own MillsBomb as their beat machine. Anyway, this remix is unreal and has got "anthem" written all over it. I know ill be rinsing it at the next Dark Party, and probably every set i play. With some next level 80's synth action, and a back arching guitar solo it is SO catchy.

Enjoy getting bombarded with it by every DP DJ this year...

The Soft Pack

so everyones writing about them, so i thought i'd join in! even though i feel massively cheated! first heard these guy a few years back when they used to trade under the name The Muslims...as you can imagine a few people werent into this. so they changed their name, but not their sound. now The Soft Pack, but they're still punk rock with a nice pop sensibility, really catchy and fun. the new single "answer to yourself" shows that pretty well. defo check out both albums, and try and see them when they're over this month

Theophilus London



I saw this guy by accident last night at Miike Snow (he was supporting) and he totally smashed it. I've know about him for a while, but never checked him out, which now annoys me because its a really refreshing and different sound. Imagine Morrissey spitting bars over Chromeo-esq bumpy house/ funk. Just him skanking on stage with a DJ, it was poppin'. Well good. Miike Snow weren't too shabby either, in-fact they were fantastic, their album (which is very underrated) really cant do them justice. They simply sounded HUGE.

Check them both out if you haven't already...
