We’ve featured this lovely lady before. Always brings the quality whenever she performs and her A64 is no different. She’s got a wicked set up with the banjo, Bass and i know there’s someone lingering with a bit of percussion. The boys back Kerry up on Backing Vocals to give the piece some lovely harmonies and make the piece even better. One of my favourite A64′s enjoy enjoy!!!
First performance from Nadine since she dropped her video for “You are The One” and with full band in towards she delivered a great performance for the Wired Crowd last Monday. Vocals lovely as always and the band are sounding dope (check the guitar solo at the end…BIG). looking forward to this EP!!!
This guy is hot property right about now as his brand of spoken word performance continues to touch on more and more ears and eyes. This one is another beautiful piece from the man about relationship that i’m sure all can relate to!
The Neutronics descended down upon an unsuspecting St Pancras Train Station last Thursday to deliver a dose of their iller Funk to the many commuters making their way home. By all accounts it sounds like it was a quality set, as only they can deliver. The musicianship of these guys is RIDICULOUS and they all look the part too!!! Definitely worth checking out the interview some funny moments in there and gives you more of an insight in too the madness and funk that is The Neutronics!

It was a busy night at Wired last Monday night and fresh from her awesome Writers Block performance last month this lady once again delivered a superb performance. This was the first song in her set and has a real nice vibe about. Band and vocals all quality enjoy!
Followed this lady for quite sometime now from her days gigging on the circuit to the present where she has a record deal and album available now. Always had great songs and quality vocal. This her performing one of those great songs and chatting a little about her and what she does.
Big up Station Sessions and go cop Zarif’s debut album Box Of Secrets NOW!!!
So the last two nights i can’t lie have been sat on the sofa glued to the box watching on as John Adeyele performed for a place in the XFactor final 12. Up until the weekend he had advanced through the rounds seemingly unnoticed without causing too much of a stir. This weekend though performing in front of Sharron Osbourne and Louis Walsh he delivered a near flawless rendition of the Bruno Mars sung hook “I wanna be a Millionaire”.
No gimmicks, no mistakes, just a quality vocal and a charming humble smile that earned the man that the scene knows as J’Nay a spot on the live finals commencing this coming weekend.
For those that don’t know John Adeleye has been around for quite some time now working the London scene and is a class act. Favourite of The Kindred Spirit, Seb Collective and poetry Motion Nights as well as winning over the crowds of the then new school One Taste and Remedy nights this guy rocked every crowd he performed in front armed with brilliant songs, mesmerising stage presence, awesome vocal and that smile and energy that he gives off that forces you to like and fall in love with him.
This brother is representing the scene and the circuit. It’s because of artists like him that i am in this game and so many of you are too. He needs your support peeps if you believe in the scene and believe in making a career for yourself in this industry we need to push him as far as he can go in this competition so the country can see what is going on and more quality artists and quality music can start gaining the attention it deserves.
Click the links blow watch the you tube clips and support this fantastic artist and man to acheive all that he can.
Today Dean Atta release his debut album The Missing Piece and it’s everything you’d expect from the man if you knew him and everything you’d expect from looking at the cover… upfront, honest and well the bare naked truth. From start to finish Dean tells stories of experience from his own life and what he has witnessed throughout. There are sad hardhiting pieces like ‘Key to the City’, tales of love and heartbreak in ‘Tunnel Vision’ and ‘Goodbye’ alongside tales of family and his roots on ‘Mother Tongue’
My favourite would probably be ‘Ascension’. It’s a lovely sample but probably the piece that resonates with me the most. Trying to live up to your potential and rise above the disappointments of life.
There’s something in there for everyone which is always the mark of a good body of work. And it’s not just for the spoken word heads it’s something music lovers can enjoy too. Click on the link below and give it a listen and download for free!!!
Last Friday Kaana and The Remedies headed down to Soul-D Out and tore the place down with the killer funk. Not the best footage in the world but you get the idea. Come see her for yourself live this Thursday @ Aesthetic Sounds Vibe Bar where there will also be performances from Heid Vogel and Lyric-L… REACH!!!
XO Man was recently invited down to the Idol Magazine offices in New Cross for a photo shoot and interview, Surrounded by many gorgeous women (so i’m told) he talks about music, how it all started, his influences, fashion and more. Here’s a lil snip:
What about your fashion sense and style?
Style? Cut to me two years ago and I would never have assumed I would be here clothes wise. It comes with confidence, it comes when you stop assuming that you have to dress a certain way because you have certain friends who listen to certain types of music. I have always liked fashion but depending on where you grow up and how you are you close doors on things because it’s not cool yet. Until you allow yourself to realise it’s cool.
There’s loads more good stuff in there so if you don’t know much about the big man click here for a little read and peep the freestyle he did for them below (big up my Bajan crew!!! watch it)
