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

Back in early-summer, a new track (Resonance) by an unheard of house collective emerged on the scene in a bizarre way - lots of fanfare, yet little in the way of content to be heard (bar the aforementioned song). After many spins from...

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

With two astonishingly-brilliant EPs already under her belt (The Duchess & Alchemy), 25 year-old TALA seems to be heading in the right direction for success. Having been signed to Aesop (and counting the likes of Sylas, Wayward and SOHN as label-mates), TALA's releases have...

First breaking onto the scene back in 2013 thanks to a guest role on Chase and Status' Lost and Not Found, it was this year that Louis Mattrs came into his own, thanks to a spectacular effort on his Slow Waves EP. Though released as...
