Listening to another as yet amazing R&B record on the radio, Radio 1 to be precise, and what a tune. It’s called Angels/Your Love and the guys’ voice on this song is both soothing and melodic and just seem to cut straight through and is on the Hottest Records on 1Xtra at the moment. If you ever get the chance check it out, it’s worth a listen. Once again America I thank you for some get music
Just caught a new track on the radio, literally a moment ago. It’s called Truth Be Told by American R&B duo Dante Jones and Drew Love, also know as They. All I can say it that it sounded amazing, and I’d definitely listen again. Once again America I salute you for giving us another great new band/duo of beautiful taste. The Truth Be Told is on their debut album Nu Religion: Hyena. Should be in the Top Ten at least.
Been hearing a lot from this guy recently, especially his song Human which is absolutely awesome listening pleasure. Radio 1’s been playing it a lot lately, and I won’t be tiring of of it any time soon. He’s only 32 he’s got an amazing, powerful, gospel voice that has a very rich sound to it. Human is a great song, I love it and the lyric “I’m only human after all” just goes round your head and is fantastic. Not bad for a guy who won the Brits Critics Choice Award
Heard the new single from British producer High Contrast on Radio 1 last night, it’s featured in the new soundtrack to T2 Trainspotting2. It’s called Mouthwash, and I was completely hooked after 20 seconds, that’s how much I loved it. As far as soundtracks go it’s highly energised and is in the same vein as Underworld’s Born Slippy. If you ever get the chance to just listen to it, you won’t be disappointed. It’s even been noted as Hottest Record in The World on Radio 1
Caught the new song by Bastille, Blame, on Radio 1 whilst on the road this afternoon which sounded really good. Sounds a bit different from some of their other songs and definitely one I would listen to again and again. Lead singer Dan Smith’s voice sounds great as always and just cuts straight through the sound.
Found myself listening to Had Enough by Lower Than Atlantis, Ain’t Got Far To Go by Jess Glynne on Radio 1 on the way back from work, and I have to admit, though I’m not a huge fan of Atlantis I found myself enjoying it. Has a mature sound to it. Ain’t Got Far To Go I’ve heard a few times already and already like it. Also there was a special track by Declan McKenna who I mentioned in a previous post. The track was called The Kids Don’t Wanna Come Home and though I only heard 20 seconds worth it sounded good.
And the winner is London gal Ray BLK (Building, Loving Knowing) who’s been described as the British equivalent of Lauryn Hill and by going by the sound of her two singles My Hood and Chill Out f.t SG Lewis. Both are incredible and great listening pleasure. Other runners up from this year are…
2. Rag ‘n’ Bone Man
4. Jorja Smith
5. Nadia Rose
The Japanese House
Well done for getting this far in the poll and look forward to hearing from you this year. Other winners have included Sam Smith, Jessie J, Adele and Michael Kiwanuka are previous winner
Watched the legendary Radio 1 DJ that is non other than Pete Tong himself play and amazing set on The Graham Norton Show on BBC1 earlier (just last year). A perfect mix of dance and classical and even had the singer Cookie (guest singer from The Shapeshifters) to perform the hit ‘Lola’s Theme’. Absolutely amazing and a perfect reminder of why the songs are great and why Pete Tong’s a LEGEND!!!
Just been driving back from work today and these were 3 tracks that I heard and they sounded amazing
Adele: Water Under The Bridge
BMTH: Oh No
Kungs (ft Ephemerals): I Feel So Bad
Anything by Adele needs no introduction as anything by her speaks for itself, not a huge fan of BMTH (Bring Me The Horizon) but I admit the track sounded alright and I’ve never heard of Kungs till now but this track was a beauty. The 1st and 3rd I’d definitely recommend for a drive-time selection.
