’16 for 2016: Ones To Watch’ – Leo Kalyan

Aside from delivering outputs with some of the most desirable cover-art we've seen in a long time, newcomer Leo Kalyan also cuts above the rest when it comes to making sultry electro-soul. In only a short time within the scene, the youngster's talents have seen...

’16 for 2016: Ones To Watch’ – Nao

Whilst the UK (alongside Australia) seems to be driving the global development of electronica, it seems that there's still a lack of females within the market who push creativity and innovation ahead. Sure we have FKA Twigs, but we'd struggle to name many more...

’16 for 2016: Ones To Watch’ – BB Diamond

Music discovery is a wonderful thing... in fact, we could firmly say that had it not been for YouTube's 'Recommended' tab, we probably wouldn't have lead ears over BB Diamond until much later in the game. Just over two years ago, BB's rendition of Rosie...

’16 for 2016: Ones To Watch’ – Billie Marten

You may not have heard of Billie Marten, but if you've been listening to either Radio 1 or 6Music over the past six months, the chances are you've definitely crossed some of her music. 16 year-old Marten has been making blog-level waves over the past...

’16 for 2016: Ones To Watch’ – Shift K3Y

Still in his early-20s, Shift K3Y has to-date led a career that many would (and probably should) be envious of. From 2014's impeccable Top 5 with Touch, alongside the equally-as-good follow-up I Know, the producer (aka Lewis Jankel) certainly sowed the seeds of a...

’16 for 2016: Ones To Watch’ – Mura Masa

'Future-based electronica' (or futuretronica, apparently) has been one of those growing genres that's amassed a small, yet wholeheartedly devoted audience over its short time. Whilst the likes of Diplo, Hermitude and Porter Robinson have all been dipping their toes where they can (particularly the...

’16 for 2016: Ones To Watch’ – Sinead Harnett

Even if you say you've never heard of Sinead Harnett, there's a high chance you've definitely caught at least one joint featuring her gorgeous vocals. Initially throw into our ears thanks to a guest spot on Disclosure's Boiling, Sinead's been part of the 'new breed'...

’16 for 2016: Ones To Watch’ – SG Lewis

SG Lewis first came into our lives earlier this year, following his startling debut Warm. Delivering a calming sense of ambient lo-fi electronica alongside some eerily soothing vocals, the track quickly led its way to the top of our playlists, and hasn't really shifted...

’16 for 2016: Ones To Watch’ – Ady Suleiman

It's not often that an emerging talent can grab hold of one of the world's biggest rappers without even having a full-length album under their name, however his sheer talent is what led to Joey Bada$$ teaming up with Ady Suleiman for the title-track...

’16 for 2016: Ones To Watch’ – Snakehips

The British music scene has been driving some of the brightest (and most innovative) exports over the past few years, and Snakehips are firmly up there when it comes to delivering future-led beats - particularly against a scene that has become markedly saturated with...
