Live: DVTN

It's always great to see all these amazingly talented visuals around me do great in life. The other day I went to a show from DVTN which consists of my fellow Pardon My Blog mate DB and his sister. I have previously introduced you to the duo (read here) when they released their single Distance but now they are back with a brand new tune. "Now that you're here I'll never let you go" Entitled Difference,...

The Halfway Kid – When I Think About Love/Come Back

Meet The Halfway Kid, a producer and singer/songwriter based in London. He recently released a the songs When I Think About Love and Come Back - both part of his mission to unveil a new song every fortnight over a couple of months. Both songs feature some strong Soul and R&B-inspired laid-back melodies. His dazzlingly smooth and subtle vocals are creating a special atmosphere which you can undoubtedly vibe along to. Make sure you keep an...

Tiana Major9 – Levee (Let It Break)

Early last year I have introduced you to the talented songstress Tiana Major9 (read interview here). At the end of last year she released her brand new single Levee (Let It Break), the follow-up of her highly acclaimed single Merry Go which quickly gained her the title as 'one to watch' by major industry tastemakers. Just recently the official visuals for Levee (Let It Break) followed - and it is her first ever music...

Patrin – Blinded By Love

Rapper Patrin is back at it! After a highly successful 2017 in which he dropped his storytelling mixtape Time Will Tell (check interview here), to being showcased on BL@CKBOX's Youtube channel with an outstanding freestyle - the lyricist is always on his grind. Just the other day he unveiled another music video, the official visuals for his single Blinded By Love taken from his project. Once again, the Harlesden-based artist proves his versatile musical...

TCO Dank – Section

Welcome to TCO Dank's Section! The London-based rapper who describes himself as an 'independent artist making music from his bedroom' has just released a new tune. Taking influence from the genre of Hip-Hop, he is yet trying to craft his very own signature sound - and it does sound very promising. Thanks to the dominant jazzy beat, his new release represents a rather vibey, laid-back summer sound which certainly comes as immensely refreshing during...

VAS LEON – Leggo

There are snakes on every corner, fake people showing fake love to you (*Drake voice intended*) or simply those untrustworthy, shameless human beings who constantly consider themselves too good for something. Yes, those kind of people are out there. Sadly. "Done with the fake people, they don't get no love from me. LEGGO!" London-raised rapper, singer and producer VAS LEON has created the perfect anthem for that! Entitled Leggo, his brand new release genuinely portrays the,...

My personal ‘ones to watch’ in 2018

Without a doubt it has been a highly successful year for music - many projects have been released and even more songs have been put out there. Many shows have been organised, many new talents have been found. Personally, I had the pleasure of discovering so many outstanding artists this year - singers, rappers, creatives - it's been such a major pleasure getting to know them, their music and their vision. There were a...

2017 – The Highlights

2017. What a year. I don't even know where to begin with but let’s try. The other day I went to a listening party and met the guy whose music platform was the first one I ever wrote for, the start of my journey basically. I started getting into music properly back in 2015 (yeah that's late but better late than never am I righttt, I have always loved music but never thought about working...

Premiere: Fifth Quarter – Eternal Recurrence

Following up on their previous single #Crash, London-based creative collective Fifth Quarter (5SiO2) returns with both a brand new visual and project Eternal Recurrence, premiering on Music & Other Stories. "This project focuses on the lifespans of an average man who with the help of a time machine struggles to find reason for his existence" Those who don't know Fifth Quarter: The collective consists of Evil Edie, Lilith, Hennessey and rapper Syf - everyone of...

Stash Peso – Cold Dreams

Guess who's back, back again? Stash Peso is back. (tell a friend). The North West London-based rapper and Too Rare To Die member recently returned with a brand new song titled Cold Dreams. The timing couldn't be any better because it's gotten quite icy out there indeed and the feeling of warmth is rather overrated these days. So this track is basically perfect right now. The new release follows up on his EP Shine (listen here)...
