While Py is slowly starting to gain some popularity in her native UK, she is relatively unknown in the United States. This is a shame though, as her talents and potential are both very high.
Take “Lungs” for example. She gets a beautiful beat courtesy of George Fitzgerald and absolutely kills it with her sexy vocals. I’m excited to see more of her work in the future. “Lungs” can be found on Py’s recent mixtape, Tripping On Wisdom.
Watch the video to “Lungs” and her latest song “These Strings” below. (more…)
Last Friday night I won tickets to see UK beatsmith Star Slinger at The Echo courtesy of Thrillcall. His live sets occupy some interesting area between UK electronic and American hip-hop, where his own intricate productions sounded right at home alongside Juicy J’s “Who Da Neighbors”. His set consisted of a slew of his intricate remixes including his “We Found Love” Rhianna remix and his Hundred Waters “Thistle” remix as well as his own original productions, “Chain Dumbin” with a verse from Juicy J and his latest release “Ladies In The Back” featuring Teki Latex.
I highly recommend seeing Star Slinger live as he got all the hipster kids at The Echo dancing.
The Chevin are an up-and-coming alternative band from the UK. Once I heard their hit “Champion” I knew these guys were going to become real big famous acts. It’s only a matter of time until America embraces their upbeat rocking sound.
Phonat is a rising DJ from London who makes real catchy electronica/dance tunes. Rather than give you a whole description of his music I will say his music reminds me of Justice mixed electro-house music, here’s two of my favorites from him.
In the DJ game, there is no one who can touch UK DJ/producer Star Slinger. He has carved out his own path, and there is absolutely nobody near him in terms of combining originality, creativity, and fat beats. His latest track, a remix to Washed Out’s “Eyes be Closed” transforms the mellow indie campfire swaying into a breakbeat dance track.
Right now, Star Slinger stays slaying dance-floors overseas in Europe, but rumor has it that he’ll be touring the US in the late fall/early winter. Follow him on Twitter for updates. If he comes to your city, go catch him live. I promise, you’ve never heard anything like this dude.
A rising UK DJ who has a electronic mix of sounds is quite talented. He already has over 60,000 fans on facebook, is playing all over the world and has a real catchy electronic sound with a little bit of dubstep, electro, house and overall real upbeat. Here’s my three favorites from Feed Me who kind of reminds me of Deamau5 or Skrillex. Call Your Girlfriend (Feed Me Remix) by robyn
Buying music is so out these days, and UK DJ/Producer Star Slinger is taking advantage. He’s constantly releasing free music on his soundcloud page of originals and remixes, and it’s all awesome. Consequently, Star Slinger is gaining tons of new followers and building a super loyal fan base. His latest work is a remix of UK hip-hop group Rizzle Kicks’ track “Down with the Trumpets.” I know absolutely nothing about Rizzle Kicks, but on the remix, Star Slinger builds a hot beat with an original latin feel to it, and creates a serious jam! I had no idea the UK could be so based.
Everything that Star Slinger touches turns to gold, so do yourself a favor and follow him on Facebook and Twitter. He’s coming back across the pond for a national US tour which should be huge. The based dance party is coming. Be there.
There is no question that Tinie Tempah has blown up in the United States in recent months even though he has been quite popular in the UK for a very long time now. He bring in Bei Maejor to help create his newest track “So Addicted” and I gotta say, this will soon be a radio hit. Enjoy!
