The future faces of music

What a year 2018 has been. A really strange one for the music scene as well - we saw memes blowing up and getting signed to a label due to them becoming viral. It seemed like 2018 real music had to take a step back and let social media attractions and meme music (yeah, it seems like that's a thing now) receive enormous recognition. It's a bit of a shame, isn't it? So many...

Music & Other Stories Presents: DynamicMP

Born-and-raised in Hackney, East London, is emerging rapper and producer DynamicMP. Although it wasn't until he started going to University that he took rapping and making music seriously. Studying Film at University of Hertfordshire, he initially planned to branch out into that industry which is how his name came about. DynamicMP originally had the meaning of 'Dynamic Media Productions' but as soon as it was time for him to get an artist name he...

Music & Other Stories Presents: Malunga

East London-based songstress Malunga already knew from an early age that she wanted to pursue her passion for music. Starting out by doing songwriting and singing sessions in youth clubs, she made the ultimate decision to go for a career as a singer when she was 17 years old. To get herself out there she went to as many open mic nights as possible, and eventually got chosen as a resident artist at 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.

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...

The Real Cool – Blinds

I´ve got a new favourite indie pop band! Their name is The Real Cool and they are based in Birmingham, England. Enthusing their listeners with incredibly smooth and laid-back guitar lines and soft synths since 2016, Thomas Pledger-Barton, Jacob Barton and Ellis Garrat have quickly established a supporting local community and are already known for delivering pretty solid live shows. Opening up for bands such as Clay or Pixel Fix, The Real Cool is looking to...

Patch – Point Of View

What exactly is a point of view? This is what Londoner rapper Patch is trying to find out in his latest release titled- you guessed it- Point Of View. His conclusion is the following: "Point of view is me taking a moment to understand that the truth and essence of people and situations is based purely on the filter through which we as individuals look at them. It's about knowing that we have the power...

Mirror Signal – Try

Mirror Signal, the singer from Suffolk, whose real name is actually Steven Barker, is still quite unknown in the business.

And now, alt soul fans watch out! Mirror Signal has just dropped a brand new track and it's beautiful. The song, titled...
