'Lovelorn' by Alonestar


Jethro Sheeran, aka Alonestar, returns with the new single ‘Lovelorn’, accompanied by the talented vocals of top ten singer, Rosie Ribbons. The addictive track was produced by Sheeran himself with the help of Massive Attack’s guitarist Angelo Bruschini.
The single explores the popular topic of heartbreak and unrequited love, but uniquely so through Alonestar’s aggressive rap stylings. Jethro and Rosie wrote ‘Lovelorn’ together about past life experiences. Jethro explains that the emotive track  “the strongest and most powerful song I have written & produced to date, it reflects my new sound and style. It’s something fresh and different to anything else out there at the moment. I dug deep to exercise the darkness in this track, and fell into the depths of my soul when coming up with the concept.”
 Being related to Ed Sheeran, Jethro always had pressure put onto his work. However, after going straight to number #3 in the iTunes charts with his debut album ‘Cornerstone’, it was clear Alonestar was going to take on the music industry by storm. He went on to win two EIA Awards, two Exposure Music Awards, wrote all of Ed Sheeran’s SBTV and Live Room Performance raps and produced Bars and Melody’s platinum selling album ‘143’ reaching number 4 in the official UK charts.

‘TLC’ taken off of ‘XLCR’ from Humor

untitled

 

‘TLC’ is taken from Humor’s forthcoming project ‘XLCR’ it’s a self-produced EP with

squelchy synths and punchy 808s and Humor’s energetic personality really shines through.

Check out ‘TLC’ below:

His beats draw from a diverse palette of grime hip-hop, deep/tech house, electronica and 90s R&B. Inspired to produce his own instrumentals after struggling to afford decent beats, he has since honed his craft into a creative and polished sound.

 

Humor’s single ‘I Told You’ from his first project was previously chosen by Tom Robinson for a BBC Introducing Mixtape on Radio 6, ‘XLCR’ is a strong project, lets hope he can do even better and gain more fans with this project.

Daniel David’s solo single ‘Me an U’ released 28th August

Single written after chance meeting with pop singer Cheryl Cole in a London night club

Hailing from East London and the creator of gritty dance pop tracks, Daniel David is no stranger to music industry success. He was part of an urban music group with none other than Labrinth, Daniel has played huge stages, such as the Radio 1 Big Weekender in front of 70,000 people, as well as winning an Urban Music Award for Best Video and being nominated for a MOBO – losing out only to JLS.

Now working on a solo career, his new single ‘Me an U’ is a bass heavy, infectious tune inspired by a chance meeting with Cheryl Cole in London’s exclusive ‘The Box’ nightclub. At the time, the singer was going through her high profile issues with ex-husband Ashley Cole, and the song was written as an offer of escape

You can hear the single here:

Daniel David is an artist who continues to build a reputation amongst his peers and the music fans, particularly in London. Amongst those voicing their support for his work you will find the likes of Plan B, Professor Green and Paul Young, not to mention aforementioned band mate Labrinth.

It’s a growing reputation that stands him in excellent stead going forward, particularly if he continues to release high quality tracks with great production like ‘Me an U’.

Daniel is also an artist who takes seriously the development of young talent in the music industry, having started a label called Eagle Rush Global to help give younger people a chance in the industry as well as create in imprint for his own work.

It’s this kind of attitude and work ethic that is likely to see Daniel David to the top of his game.

Listen to ‘This is Who I Am’ here: https://soundcloud.com/lateefahsings/this-is-who-i-am

“This is who I am” brings a bass fueled, revival to the soul scene. Produced by talented young producer KING for Lateko Records, it will be released July 14th.  Lateefah’s debut single “Here I am” held the number one spot for three weeks on the Reverbnation Christian chart for St. Lucia and also for a period of one week was number one on all genres chart. The single also reached #27 on the National Airplay Top 50 Gospel Chart (US) in December 2013 sharing the spotlight with notable artists such as Mary Mary, William McDowell, Donnie McClurkin and others.  Her second single release “Love Me Through” was well received by the media and already performing live sessions with some of the top radio stations such as Premier Radio and top venues such as The Vortex, she is one to follow.

London Born musician, Lateefah is a neo soul artist who after returning to the UK from her parent’s native country of St Lucia, is now working on further developing her gift for making music. Her new single releasing this year, will hope to demonstrate the talent and efforts of this young neo soul artist.

The cool Caribbean Artist started out singing in church at a young age, and gathers a lot of the inspiration for her work, from her own personal diaries from her childhood. Adapting these written records of her past, Lateefah has been able to create moving and soulful songs that entertain and educate her listeners about her colorful past.

Lateefah developed her passion for singing from early on as 3 years of age! Her earliest memory of being driven by the art, was trying to hit the right notes in the song “The Lord is my Shepherd”.  Rehearsing relentlessly, until she hit it with pitch perfect precision. After that success and a great deal of extra practice, the music industry became a second home for the young superstar. The music blood has been in Lateefah’s family since her father founded the 70’s Reggae band, Cygnus.

Along with the Single, you can also get a FREE download of the track “Here I am”: http://latekorecords.com/lat-s-music

Scrilla – Turn me Up – Single out, July 14th!

Scrilla

 Album, Bangers N Cash, to follow later this summer

Upcoming urban rapper, Scrilla, is releasing a new album under his own record label Scrills Monetary Records. Having been described as a “fantastic artist who is abstract in creativity” by Tom Simkins (BBC Introducing), it is no surprise that Scrilla is hotly tipped for success in the UK music scene this 2014.

 

New release, ‘Turn Me Up’, sees Scrilla showcase his refined song writing skills and musical arrangement to create an ideal club hit. The track embodies the whole vibe of the album, Bangers N Cash, which is filled with fun and upbeat, contemporary music. Produced by Elementree (Young Money, Young Capone, Cuban Linx), ‘Turn Me Up’ has a variety of Dubstep, dance and hip-hop influences to create a rhythmic fusion of chart beats worthy of acclaim.

 

Check out the video for new single here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3D3e4iU3Qds

Listen to the song here: https://soundcloud.com/iamscrilla-com/turn-me-up-hiphop

 

Scrilla has played at various venues nationwide, gaining considerable media coverage from the likes of Capital FM and RAP City TV. However, his career highlights to date include a live performance at BBC introducing radio, playing to a 10,000 strong crowd at Gran Can Music Festival in Gran Canaria and of course, owning his own record label.

 

In order to keep his music fresh and unique, Scrilla likes to work with rising producers, engineers and collaborators who can bring innovative ideas and musical influences to keep the music new and exciting. This helps to avoid producing generic sounds that is hard to differentiate between artists and also pushes the boundaries of the urban genre to create something truly eclectic.

 

Scrilla’s love of music first developed in his early teenage years when his Mum paid for piano lessons, which ignited his desire to learn and produce music professionally. This progressed when he moved to Leicester forming friendships with fellow rappers who encouraged him to write his own material and master the craft.

 

The musical direction decided and perfected, Scrilla’s new album is a great example of how the talent he possesses has grown and tightened to produce something great.

ShoDem returns with ‘ShoDem Records presents…ShoDem’ EP May 5th

https://soundcloud.com/shodement-1/shodem-records-presents-shodem


Bright young entrepreneur collaborates with some of the UK’s top up and coming stars

Following the success of previous track ‘Cheque Me’, featuring London MC Beluga Ice, ShoDem Records returns in May with a new, six track EP, which addition includes bonus mixes from ShoDem Ent DJ Kapz.

The brainchild and versatile music maker ‘Sose’ (aka Sammy Sose), has further developed ShoDem Records creating an innovative project designed to work with a variety of UK artists and deliver original, raw and exciting UK talent and music under SMG. And for this EP he has gathered together three talented artists who he is looking to develop in their respective music careers.

The lead track and EP opener ‘My Time’ (video in the making) is a rhythmic hip-hop track featuring the voice of female vocalist and rapper Honey the first Lady of ShoDem SMG. Built on a foundation of effective looped electronic sounds, the lyrics portray an artist grabbing opportunity with both hands striving toward the music career that lays ahead. Honey is unlike many other female Mc’s feminine in her ways she keeps her lyrics relevant and relatable.

After opening the EP, Honey also goes on to appear on two more tracks – ‘Welcome2the Floor’ and ‘Hold You Down’. A proud artist on the rise, the ShoDem EP represents Honey’s first, confident steps into the music industry.

Two more tracks on the EP, ‘More Girls More Cars More Weed’ and ‘Drinks on Me’ feature another up and coming talent in Steffy Dizzle. Having started rapping at the age of 18, Steffy was recently contacted by producers for TV series The Voice, turning them down to build his own career. Already an experienced performer, his talents also saw him appear on TV show Limelight UK, as well as picking up plaudits from the radio community.

Last but not least, the final track on the album is the aforementioned track ‘Cheque Me’, featuring Beluga Ice. With an extremely catchy hook and relatable lyrics – depicting a talented man who could have it all, as long as he stops being lazy and works for it – the track turned plenty of heads on its original release earlier this year.

You can still catch the ‘Cheque Me’ video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F0fiRM8EOg4

It’s A Bright Future for ‘ShoDem ENT’

He has always had an entrepreneurial instinct, even from a young age when he used to sell sweets for a profit. Providing for his family and supporting his mother from an early age has taught Sose to dream big, and that with hard work you can achieve anything.

Upcoming urban Artist, Goldi, releases debut single ‘Typa Chick’

Goldi ‘Typa Chick’ – Released December 9th

Goldi is a young singer/songwriter originating from East London/Essex. With her spontaneous style of writing, her punchy lyrics and sassy attitude, Goldi’s new track ‘Typa Chick’ impacts with everything a first single should be.

Growing up listening to soul music and Motown, Goldi has always been highly influenced by this particular era. After struggling to fit in at school Goldi turned to music at a young age, and after starring in several musicals she discovered a passion for performing that she decided she just had to pursue.

Goldi has consistently worked since the age of twelve, sometimes holding down two jobs at a time in order to support her ambition. After moving on from musical theatre, Goldi auditioned for several music projects in and around London, where she began an artist development deal with an independent record label. This enabled Goldi to express her creative writing capability – having written her first song at the age of seven, Goldi was finally able to record her first track. After her contract ended, she was scouted by a music manager and since then she has worked with Solo Solid Crew and several producers.

Goldi’s ambition and hard-working attitude has led to her striking out on her own. Having formed a partnership with London based production company ‘Knightstarr’ Goldi now works religiously with them. She loves trying new things in the studio, experimenting with her sound with no limitations, and her new single ‘Typa Chick’ channels the brilliant spontaneity of being lost in the moment. Its catchy hook and upbeat tempo will inspire dance-floors all over the UK, and the sexy and conspicuous video reveals her as a force to be reckoned with on the urban music scene.

“I know what I want, I don’t always get it right but I will get it, I’m prepared to work my ass off until I do” – Goldi

THE DICE release the DOUBLE 6 E.P. (Beetroot Records release 2-12-2013)

Outta nowhere, from the humid streets of MARACAIBO, VENEZUELA via LONDON’S gritty underground comes THE DICE, aka BEETROOT RECORDS head honcho Alfonso Araujo with his debut EP, the freshest mix-up of Urban beats, sleazy grime bass lines, and phat hip-hop rhythms we’ve heard in ages..

“ROLL THE DICE” features EMCEE KILLA on vocals

(from CAXTON PRESS , London’s buzzing Hip-Hop collective fresh from supporting PUBLIC ENEMY at their recent Brixton show), who turns in a stunning,  expressive delivery over the Dice’s trademark dirty bass, with  a killer synth-line hook to seal the deal.

IMPULSE OF WAR reworks these elements into an alternative, more melodic cut with vocals from TIDDLES ( top female rapper from London’s punk underbelly) and JASON JAMES    (another killer wordsmith from Colchester’s folk protest scene ), whilst a remix from underground Acid Techno kingpins CHRIS LIBERATOR & STERLING MOSS fuses the edgy beats, flowing raps and needle sharp synths into an uptempodancefloor powerhouse.

This  is a taster for the forthcoming DICE album, an eclectic ensemble of brilliant songs somewhere between the cutting edge blues of MASSIVE ATTACK,  via PORTISHEAD, contemporary HIP-HOP and sleazy ROCK ‘N’ROLL, created with haunting electronic sounds, raw beats, dirty guitars, violins and some of the most interesting vocalists around, all put together by the extremely talented DICE MAN himself, someone you are gonna be hearing a lot more of in the coming months. We think the album’s something really special, but in the meantime, get your teeth into Double Six EP.
