Feature: Here’s what shaped music in 2015

We're sure most would agree that 2015 has zoomed past our eyes; now in December (and with everyone talking Christmas and New Years Eve shenanigans), we're taking a quick glimpse back at our music-world highlights for the year. Scroll through 2015's biggest moments using the...

Spotlight: 15 for 2015 ‘Ones To Watch’

With 2015 less than a whisker away, we've channeled who we firmly believe will be the big stars of the music scene over the course of the next 12 months. Sure there may be some inclusions that you may have already heard of (particularly...

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...

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,...

Spotlight: 15 for 2015 ‘Ones To Watch’ – Rae Morris

With a plethora of EPs arriving over the past couple of years (three of which in the past twelve-months alone), young British singer/songwriter Rae Morris has developed something of an ever-growing fan-base. No less thanks in part to her shimmering early-2014 cut Do You...

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

We first laid ears on Shura way back at the start of the year, when the young Londoner unveiled her debut release Touch on Soundcloud. Pretty much without any kind of fanfare, Touch quickly drove acclaim - whilst it didn't take long for 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’ – Seinabo Sey

Seinabo Sey is one of those bizarre cases that you unfortunately hear too many about - someone whose sheer talents are applauded by the blog community, yet criminally ignored by the general public who buy music. Bursting onto the scene over a year back with...

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

Regular readers would note we've been championing Elderbrook since we first laid ears on Could a couple of months back, and suffice to say, there's something both massively interesting, and exciting, about what's to come from the young producer. Still only 20 years-old, Elderbrook (real...
