Loveless – They Don’t Know
Loveless have recruited UK vocalist Varren Wade for this latest single; a fresh production packed to the rim with good-time Summer vibes, soulful vocals and beautifully contrasting gritty bass hits. Throughout 2014 Loveless has released several remixes as well as their first official single, How To Love You which was instantly added to national radio. Their music has brought them attention from blogs, magazines, youtube-channels and DJs all over the world. On Soundcloud they reached 500k plays in a their first year as artists.
Courts – Part Of
Essex 5-piece, Courts are making self confessed ‘music with a message’ and set to take your ears by storm with their addictive hybrid genre harnessing; blending Hip Hop and Indie into one unique sound. Hailed as Zane Lowe’s last ever ‘Next Hype’ on BBC Radio One, the boys have come up via BBC Introducing Essex, and are set for a brilliant year ahead. Keep an eye out as we’ve heard the guys are releasing some new music pretty soon.
Iyes – Glow

Memeb – Thousand Words feat. Kaleem Taylor
Spanish producer duo Memeb have shared their debut track, titled “Thousand Words,” which features the vocals of Kaleem Taylor. With split synths and high hat top-notes, the producer duo seek to create their own vision on 21st Century Music. They try to focus their mind in a specific sound; but pride themselves on being able to adapt to any style.
The Griswolds – If You Wanna Stay
Their debut album has already smashed the US, with their single ‘Beware of the Dog’ charting on iTunes alternative chart in the top 5 and the Heatseeker charts top 10, with 6 million streams worldwide so far and finishing in the top 3 of The Spotify emerge campaign. They have been compared to having a sound similar to Tame Impala and Vampire Weekend.
Espa – Pray For Me
Espa adopts a significant intimacy in her sound and song writing. Classic soulful R&B informs a large amount of her approach to her music but by the same token, she will never be confined by one musical style. Erykah Badu, Jimi Hendrix and Madonna are cited as inspirations: as much for their ability to reinvent themselves as for their music. And while her music speaks of a long relationship with soul and RnB, her work with hip-hop taste-makers and friends and collaborators, Flatbush Zombies on ‘Red Light, Green Light’, gives an idea how far her musical parameters extend.
