Shayne Brown – #9toFiver

I’ve watched Shayne Brown coming up for a while now, and it is amazing to see him find himself as an artist. His use of autotune on songs is just right, enabling him to produce catchy hooks that people can vibe to. Shayne has filmed for me before, and it’s fair to say he’s a lovely guy to work with and I will be supporting until the very end!

Sally Caitlin – Stuck in Limbo (The Next Room House Mix/UKG Mix)

Personally, I hate house music, but there’s something about Sally Caitlin‘s voice that makes me want to get up and dance, especially the garage mix! This one is out on the 9th October. Sally has also been working with award winning producers The Next Room for th past year, so I’m certain we’ll hear some more fire very soon!!

Kadiata – Goodnight

Following his previous release “Madeleine”, Kadiata (formerly Clixx), has released “Goodnight”. It follows in the same style as his previous releases since the rebranding of himself as an artist, quite dark, with lots of autotune. As much as I love the music Clixx made, I’m enjoying this new sound, also.

Jordan King – Unborn Child

I find Jordan King a beautiful mix of raw emotion, power and good looks. His voice and writing capabilities speak for themselves in this track. Absolutely stunning, and something slightly different from Jordan.

Paige Young – All the Way ft Chip

I love this one from Paige Young, although I’m not a huge fan of Chip, or his verse on this track, overall I love the vibe and the hook. Beautiful vocals.

Mr. Mini – Hi, I’m Mr. Mini (Official Video)

Mr. Mini has been around for a little while (although this is the first I’ve heard of him), so this track is no real introduction, however it does show off his wordplay skills and fun energy.

“Hi, I’m Mr. Mini” reminds me of Eminem in his We Made You days, although maybe that’s just the video, either way I thoroughly enjoyed both the song and video. The hook is catchy and I look forward to what he produces next.

Loick Essien – Number One (Official Video)

http://cache.vevo.com/assets/html/embed.html?video=QMGR31510447&autoplay=0

I posted the audio for Loick’s “Number One” a little while ago, but I had to show you the video. The track showcases his powerful vocals without the ballad instrumentals. Makes me want to get ready for summer already, let’s hope it’s a good one. I’m excited that Loick is BACK! Also, I’m aware that posting someone who is not upcoming breaks my rules… but I couldn’t resist!

Jay CarterĂ© – The Love Story

Yesterday, Jay CarterĂ© released his fresh new 8 track long EP called “The Love Story”. It showcases his abilities to produce dance music, which is currently becoming a more and more popular genre.

Jay is what you call a DIY artist, he produces, films and edits, sings and raps. Not only does this minimise expenses for him, but also means he is a force to be reckoned with as he is able to work at his own pace and doesn’t  have to depend on others to get the projects done. The EP is available for ÂŁ5.99 on iTunes, which is less than most of Burger King’s meals. Be healthy, support a cause. People don’t understand the importance of buying music. Just like you working in Tesco, this is their job. They provide you with music that you can listen to every day for the rest of your life if that’s what you want to do. You wouldn’t steal clothes, or food or shoes (some of you might), so don’t do the same with music. Hit download, it’s well worth it.

Risky Javan – Vibe Like This (Adonai Remix)

This video/track captures perfectly everything I love about Risky. His high energy and extremely happy persona are portrayed so perfectly. Risky is always good fun to be around and watching this video definitely makes you want to jump into the computer screen and “vibe” with him. Make sure you catch him live if you can, he’s so good on the stage and makes sure everyone has a good time, no matter what age, race, or gender you are! Vibe Like This is taken from his forthcoming E-Tape “New Wave”.

This video also features the beautiful and extremely talented Luv❀Rell, who has a project coming out on May 10th, Alpha Tauri. Make sure you look out for it!

Razor – Other Side ft Jay Soul

Other Side is by far my favourite track that Razor has ever released (that includes anything from his mixtapes/EPs). His deep and intense lyrics tell a snippet of his life and is complimented by the beautiful voice of Jay Soul. Razor has taken a long time to release the official video for this, following his Illacoustic but it’s been worth the wait. He’s now performed twice at “I luv live” since he released the Illacoustic, which he says he’s been waiting to do for 5 years! Good for you, keep working hard, I look forward to hearing more from you, Razor, we need more lyricists, too much air and meaningless messages in music these days.

  • [Thought of the Week]

    "Maybe cheating in a relationship isn't the worst thing you could do, maybe it's just human nature?"

    Remember when you were a child, and your parents would tell you you're not allowed to eat sweets, or make a mess in your bedroom, and you'd do the complete opposite and crave it even more just because you're not allowed? Or if you're on a diet, you know you're not allowed cake or carbs, but simply because you know you're not allowed it, you want it even more? Well surely the same applies in relationships?
    Firstly, I want to start by saying we're not perfect, but perfection is something we should strive towards. Honesty is the best policy.
    A friend of mine is genuinely one of the loveliest people I know, with the best heart and the best intentions and I don't want to show him in a negative light whatsoever, simply provide you with an alternative idea. I've known him for a few years, however we only started speaking properly about a year ago. We both found each other attractive, blah blah blah, so we decided to book a hotel room. He ignored me for a few days, so obviously something was wrong, then he told me there's another girl he loves (obviously I didn't know this before), as they weren't together. I didn't think much of it, actually I was extremely envious of this girl, and that she has someone in her life that is so dedicated and faithful. A few months later, conversation escalated, and we once again decided to go hotel, and a few days beforehand he once again cancelled. This time I was pretty angry and upset, because he'd lead me on and then cancelled. Obviously we're not together but I'm my own person too at the end of the day and don't want to be lead on.
    Another few months later we started talking, innocent conversation about gym, films etc (this time via dm on twitter as I deleted his number and vice versa, I assume), and I had calmed down over the previous incident, he was a genuinely lovely person and I admire the faithfulness to his yet to be girlfriend, I hope I find someone like that in the future. But anyway, we decided to have a gym session together, as we live near each other we went to the park, and for the majority of it, it was a really good session, fun, productive (my legs KILLED the following day) but there was sexual tension, especially towards the end. My back was super sore from gym the previous day and he offered a massage, it was rubbish and he didn't get very far unfortunately as he was starting to give in, and couldn't resist the attraction any longer. Not a lot happened as I stopped him, before it escalated too far. I'd hate for my future husband to cheat on me, so I could only give this couple the same respect (they were together a few months at this point). The following day he thanked me, and was grateful for stopping him.
    The point of this example is, I know my friend loves his girlfriend very much but none of us are perfect and we all give in to temptation now and again. Many males/females cheat because they have a craving, and a hoe gets in the way that has no respect for the relationship and only wants his/ her needs fulfilled, few will have a conscience and stop anything

    Alternatively, on a separate occasion I was speaking to another friend about this topic. He told me that he's seen a sidechick/man save many relationships. His reasons were that if you have an argument with your partner, instead of ending the relationship, you go to see a sidechick/man, relax, then go back to your partner happy and proceed as normal. I disagree with his reasoning however I see the point behind it.
    As long as you don't make a habit out of temptation, and are honest... maybe we're too extreme when it comes to cheating? I disagree with cheating, and don't condone it, however this is just a thought. Everyone get's bored of everything eventually if you get too high a dose, it's just a matter of balance.
