’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...

Spotlight: 15 for 2015 ‘Ones To Watch’ – Speelburg

Still incredibly-early in his career, French/American-born producer and singer Speelburg already seems to have the who's-who of the industry firmly at his feet. Already heralded by the likes of Zane Lowe, alongside Radio 1 DJs Phil Taggart, Huw Stephens, Gilles Peterson and Tom Ravenscroft,...

’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...

Spotlight: 15 for 2015 ‘Ones To Watch’ – George The Poet

The backdrop to London's 2012 Olympic Games first allowed us access to George The Poet, with his insightful look into the real inner-state of the capital in My City. More a poem than a song itself, it was My City that not only opened...

Spotlight: 15 for 2015 ‘Ones To Watch’ – Becky Hill

Throughout the month, we'll be documenting our '15 for 2015' Ones To Watch. First up, it's Becky Hill: Regardless of whether an artist wins (or appears in the live finals), the ability to be able to positively shun the chains of reality TV show appearances...

’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’ – Mabel

Most offspring of powerhouse music supremos usually have it made when they want to venture off on their own course within the industry - modern culture tells us that you don't need talent in order to gain a social media following by the millions;...
