The UK emcee Dazzle returns to uplift his community with the powerfully Hip Hop/Reggae infused album ”Kingship”.
The London artist impresses mightily and starts in menacing mood with ”Already (Intro)”. This sets up the game and then it’s the Reggae soaked ”Everybody Talkin”. I really like the buzz on this one and it flows through the speaker to get me listening intently.
”London” heads through the whole city and stories of his life in the majestic city. This has a grimy UK feel to it and this is probably my favorite track. ”Foolish” is next up and this starts with some wonderful female vocals that I would like to find out more about. Dazzle soon swoops in and pulls out his bars that sinks through the track.
The album is complemented by the remaining tracks ”In My Head”, ”Special”, ”Roll Up”, ”Dangerous”, ”Real”, ”Just Another Day”, ”Know Now” and the remix for ”Immortal”. I enjoyed ”Special” the most here as it has a familiar sound and the song is one to groove with all might.
Dazzle certainly knows how to put on a show and this album is a highly skilled produced effort that gets me in the mood. This is one of the UK’s shining lights in the Hip Hop scene.
Victoria May is a young British born pop singer with a massive future. She sparks brightly here with her debut single called “Electricity“.
Now based in Argentina, Victoria impresses like a futuristic starlet on this pop soaked winner. With quality production and pure vocals that make my ears sweat, this is a tremendous entry into the music world.
Recorded in Buenos Aires and mixed in New York, you can feel the overriding international standard and the whole package is a delicious listen the whole way through. This is a young musician with a huge future if she can stay focused and hungry for more. Victoria’s voice puts me under a delightful spell of positive energy.
“Electricity” is one of those songs that makes you listen again and again. You imagine Victoria’s feeling towards her new crush, she wants it but isn’t afraid to keep her guard up just in case something is off.
This is an absolute gem and I highly recommend you give Victoria May your full attention.
Ettie is a new singer-songwriter from London. She drinks a lot of wine and has a lot of feelings. ”hello, i’ve got anxiety” is the name of her latest track and the name says it all really. This a talented young lady who is struggling to break out of her own head at the moment and needs our support.
Her first single ”fast cars and airplanes” went on to get radio play on BBC Scotland and she has had a great deal of success so far.
”hello, i’ve got anxiety” is self-written and produced by Hoeningermix. Ettie, who is struggling with an anxiety disorder herself, wanted to write a song that provided a soundtrack to other peoples’ anxieties. The aim is to hopefully open up the dialogue around mental health. This is a topic that is often swept under the carpet and not talked about enough.
This is a wonderfully created track and we hope that Ettie can move past this and be happy inside. She deserves it.
Abi Flynn is from Brighton in United Kingdom and has a spellbinding style that is a pleasure to listen to. She saves the day like a superhero with her beautiful new song called ”Courage”.
”Courage” is packed full of deep vocals and magical drum beats and the ambiance is such a welcome addition to the airwaves of the world.
After recovering from the dreaded chemotherapy and making a full bounce back, Abi is one brave woman. She fought through cancer and never gave up. She then found out that she was giving birth and this must of been a huge shock to the system. After being told that her body was supposedly infertile, this is such a miracle of movie-type proportions. Abi Flynn is 2020’s UK comeback artist of the year and what an inspiration she is.
”Courage” sums us 2020 perfectly and Abi Flynn is in stupendous form here. What a brave woman and what a talent.

Underrated British singer Lewis Edwards has just released his new r&b love story with ”Idols”. This is a fantastic song that cheers us up and also is reflective on love.
Lewis is attempting to rise to the top no matter what stands in the way. He is inspired by his idols and also wants to reach their levels. He is even keen to knock some of them off their pedestals. This is a humble singer and he also missing that special one that is just like he is.
”Idols” is a sweet song with dynamic vocals and a smooth background style that maximizes Lewis Edwards track. I like his clean cut attitude and meaningful lyrics. The British singer raises him game here and this is a very pleasurable listen. His r&b indie persona is radiant and well-received in this dark year of 2020.
There are some artists that just have it. Their voice is stunningly delivered, the tone is perfect and they sing without trying too hard. This is pure talent and is a pleasure to listen to. I feel relaxed and drift away like I’m on a quiet lake on a sunny afternoon.
Miranda Joy has a soulfully genuine voice that takes you away to another peaceful world. With striking pureness she washes away all our fears and makes everything okay.
London based and working on a few projects, this is one of the UK’s finest talents around. On the way up and shining bright, we are in the midst of this fantastic singer- pianist’s time to shine.
”The Fall” is all about picking yourself up after falling. You need to dust yourself off and embrace the fall. Learn from the lesson while patching yourself up with the medical aid kit of life. Smiling in the mirror and laughing about the unfortunate events. This is the only way to mentally survive and not drift too far down the dusty and wind-filled road. We should try and hold onto the good memories and remember that tomorrow is another day.
Their music is out of a UK music. Perhaps Snatch or Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. It’s very dark and moody with some spooky sounds that keep you on the edge of your chair. The song builds and build, keeping us all captivated.
A monolith is a geological feature consisting of a single massive stone or rock, such as some mountains, or a single large piece of rock placed as, or within, a monument or building. I feel like Baad Acid are busy jamming right now on a massive rock, with their sound effortless and professional. They have a sound that must sound even better live.
”Monolith” is a grand song from the Douglas, Isle Of Man band. They are on another level with this and an entertaining song with lots of twists and turns. They have an earthy sound sound tight together. An act to watch out for in 2020 and for festivals in 2021 no doubt.
Bonsai Bison is a musician and visual artist based in East London in the UK. ”No Respect” is the new release for the newcomer in the music scene and this is an enjoyable single.
This is all about getting that respect that you deserve and not settling for anything else. This is a vital way to go about things otherwise you can go crazy. Being manipulated and hearing lame stories all the time that you know aren’t true is no way to live. This is experimental electronic music and I haven’t heard any style like this before. The beat takes me to a strange place and I am reflective and feel like I am in a far away place. Quite a lonely place.
Bonsai Bison is creating a niche for herself and this East London artist doesn’t conform to any particular box which is refreshing to see. There are some creative sampling here and I like the home kind of feel. This is an artist keeping busy during these crazy times and getting better and better.
Breakups are an emotional roller coaster and can really affect you for years. Perhaps forever. However, you can learn a lot about yourself and its important to cherish those good memories.
Prince of Sweden is a true indie folk singer-songwriter from South London and is emerging slowly but surely on the UK music scene. ”If You Speak to Her, Tell Her Thanks for Me” is the new release from this young musician and we are blessed to have a lyric video to watch.
Recorded at Stonepitts Farm, this is a beautifully sung live track and I really enjoy the simple video. This is a sad song and was captured perfectly. The message here is that Prince of Sweden (James Phippen) is grateful for the great times but knows that it’s over and time to move on.
Wearing a smart white jumper, Prince of Sweden encapsulates a man that is expressing his hidden pain about this new development. I like his voice a lot and would love to watch Prince of Sweden play live. This is the type of singer-songwriter that is low-key and not worries about being flashy on Social Media.
Let’s look for more songs from this real talent who is sure to shine on the local scene when pubs and venues open up again. He is a mysterious figure who will have his time to shine.
You can never give up. Even if you have been told that you are in the wrong career or should just give up. It’s vital to never listen to these negative notions if you truly believe that this is what you love and should be doing. Music heals all and is good for the soul anyway.
UK emcee Scratchy Joe has just release his middle finger anthem to all the haters on his brand new Facebook single ”Keep On”. This is a story about how he loves what he does and won’t give up until he chooses to. Doing things on your own terms is important when you are in the music game as there are a lot of so-called experts out there that are just looking to bring you down. This is a song all about that and this emcee has lots of energy and style about him. With such a raw song he might not be everyone’s cup of tea but we should admire his persistence. I’m excited to see how he develops and which producers and other artists he works with next.
