New artist… Mayflower. They’re going to be playing at Soup Kitchen on 30th April and are creating some really good music. I’d really recommend going to see them!

I’ve been listening to Leon Vynehall’s new album called ‘Rojus (Designed to Dance)’… It’s incredible, like paradisaical house music.

Really into this new track, Gone by Hudson Scott, his debut show at the Nines in Peckham last month was incredible.

Also, this group, Little Cub are pretty exciting.

Baby Queens – with an old-school R&B vibe they’re doing it for the girls and recently did an awesome live set for BBC Radio 1Xtra.

Lazytalk – I saw these guys at The Great Escape last year, crammed into a packed out Green Door Store, and they were a definite favourite. Labelled as ‘Future-Ska’ – a blend of brass/rap/electronic and more – you can’t help but move to their music!
