Last night saw Mistajam drop Essex based rapper Dream Mclean's second single on MTA records; 'Sloe Gin'. As always Dream Mclean kills it.
Some nostalgic visuals for my favourite track from Jessie Ware's stunning debut album 'Devotion'. Bashmore smashed it with this one.
Pretty self explanatory really - my 20 favourite albums of 2012, with a few notable mentions to go with it. A pretty fantastic year for music, if you ask me. Make sure you listen to any of these that you haven't, and let know if there any others that would have made your list! Bring on 2013...
As if he hasn't been there enough over the past few years, Example has today announced that he and DJ Wire will be the special residents at Ibiza & Mallora Rocks in 2013. The pair are known for their incredibly tight and high energy sets, and will be blessing the islands with 15 of them across the Summer, with Example taking his live band across for 2 live shows along the way. Promo video after the jump, and all other info is HERE and HERE.
Alok & Icy Sasaki take Snoop & JT's R&G classic 'Signs' and turn it into a groovy Deep House track, perfect for 2012. Have a feeling this one will go down very well on the dancefloors over Christmas.
Croatian-based festival Hideout have today unveiled the second part of their 2013 line-up, which sees Seth Troxler, Julio Bashmore, Bicep, Soul Clap and many more added to an already stellar week of music. Tickets are selling fast, but you can still get some HERE, for what is sure to be the festival of the year.
Seeing as though every man and his dog is doing a 'Sound Of 2013' list this year, I thought it was only right that The House Of Coxhead gives you some people to watch out for in the new year, who I believe have all the elements to become stars of the future. The list is 10 acts strong and covers a (quite) diverse range of music, including Hip-Hop, Soul, House & R&B. If you've been a regular visitor of the site over the past 12 months, then you should have heard of all these people, but if you haven't, then make sure you do your research and educate yourselves on their music. Part 1 is below, with Part 2 coming later in the week.
A very personal insight into the life of Ed Sheeran and some of the experiences that have helped him get to where he is today, with words from his family and very close friends. An incredible journey thus far, and so much more to come.
