Carlitta Durand - How I Feel

Carlitta

Just when you don’t think things can get any better - Miss Durand decides to pop up with an absolute gem. Produced by Magnedo; (who did a lot of work on Carlitta’s Way “The Prelude”) ‘How I Feel’ is everything I expected, and more. Carlitta’s soothing vocals work in perfect harmony with the uplifting piano beat, creating the most beautiful sound I have heard for a long time. She is my favourite new-ish female artist and I am really looking forward to her album.

Beats. James Beats.

A concept instrumental album, by Shy Guy, based on the theme music from the James Bond Movies. Another example of a Hip-Hop producer thinking outside the box. I really enjoyed this. ‘From Russia With Love’ was a personal favourite.

David Stewart - Virtual Love

For those of you that don’t know - David Stewart is a singer, songwriter and performer that is currently singing and playing guitar for Example. Aged just 21, he has achieved some quite astonishing feats; including writing with Mark Owen, performing at the famous Abbey Road Studios and also on the tail end of the Simply Red arena tour. David will also be performing at near enough every major festival in the country this Summer, before starting to concentrate on writing and recording material for his first commercial release, which will hopefully come to fruition in 2011/2012.

I’m not a huge fan of Pop music on the whole, but I can appreciate thoughtful lyrics and forward-thinking production. This song has both of those. I think it’s a very clever concept and I know that I for one would love to see more Music like this in the Top 40 on a regular basis. He is a top guy, a very talented Musician and I wish him every success for the next few years. I was lucky enough for him to send me ‘Virtual Love’ earlier today and you are able to hear it here:

Rhymefest - Dangerous 5:18

ELCHE

Big. Huge. Enormous. Gigantic.

This is Mixtape is everything a Mixtape should be. A lot of people have been moaning and complaining about how long El Che has taken to be released, but if you want to hear a brilliant album, then you need to understand that it will take time. The majority of these tracks would make it onto most people’s albums. I have seen Rhymefest live twice and I have always said he is one of my favourite MC’s and that ‘Blue Collar’ was massively under-rated - I still believe this. I think everyone will be astounded by El Che, but for now; here’s one of the best Mixtapes I have heard in a long time. You can hear a track called ‘Letter’ featuring John Mayer below and get the link for the mixtape HERE.
