Combining the best elements of rock, pop, funk and soul, Alanna Royale is led by Alanna Quinn-Broadus, whose soulful voice and suggestive, "spicy swagger" hook you from the moment you hit play.
One of the most soulful, energetic and emotional releases I've heard in years.
Seriously groovy stuff. This one will slap you silly.
Here are a few of her older tunes that will rock your socks off.
Here is a live video for 'Animal'.
In preparation for the new album from The Traveling Band (out this week!!)...here is a live video for 'Passing Ships', their new single.
I know I just posted about this genre hopping 19 year old bad ass but she has released another moody and hypnotic track that is sure to help make people sit up and notice her.
Here is a teaser of the EP she has coming out in October.
I expect big things.
I am huge fan of Stan Forbee and his jazz influenced hip-hop beat tapes.
He's back with a new EP and it looks to be super sweet.
In his own words...
"After the successful release of my debute album Jazz Sessions last year, beatmaker and jazz musician (and alterego of a certain Dutch producer) I announce my second project entitled "Reflections EP", which consists out of 6 fresh jazzy tunes. This project, like my first Jazz Sessions album, will be released on Digi Crates Records (NY / JP) by the 2nd of August on CD + Digital."
Here is a sample of what to expect.
Check out more of tunes below.
Winner of Female Artist of the Year (Liverpool Music Awards), Natalie McCool is a voice to be reckoned with. She has great pop sensibility and just enough of an edge to help her rise above the slew of female artists trying to make a name for themselves.
See what the fuss is about.

ZOHARA is an Israeli artist based in Tel Aviv, who just finished her first album which she produced in her bedroom. HEr first single, Soldier, has some really moving and meaningful lyrics that hit home a bit more due to during these turbulent times in the Middle East.
"You will go and you'll find you've been wrong
Ten thousand miles too long
And it's not only you that's to blame
You've been raised by the rules of the game
And i know you've been sitting on high
Watching mistakes passing by
And you shrugged and you turned a blind eye
When they told you too many have died
Yes i remember one, told me once, told me once
That same actions will yield the same outcomes
You will go and you'll find you've been fooled
Following all of their rules
We're the same on both sides of the line
How did they turned you so blind?"
Download the single HERE!!
I look forward to hearing more from this burgeoning artist.
Great new track from Friends in Paris but the remix from Way Back is the real winner here...a solid deep house track.

I'm a huge fan of drums and a huge fan of bass and this tune has both in spades. It also has a very catchy vocal. All of those elements combined will get your feet tapping, head bobbin' and your ass shakin'.
In her own words...
"THE BASS SOLDIERS EP is a real labour of love. Following the success of my track with Calvin Harris last summer (Thinking About You), we decided that the next logical step would be to remind the fans who we are and why we do this.
The last few months have been spent putting together a team that best represents HG and this thing we love so much, bass music. The EP is made up of four tracks with established and successful bass artists including DRUMSOUND & BASSLINE SMITH and RACK'N'RUIN, as well as up and coming talent, to remind everyone that we are in this together. We are so lucky that bass music is flying high at the moment. Myself and HG hope to be fully involved in promoting and proliferating not only the music and artists that we love but also fashion, design, art and film. This is to support UK talent in various creative movements representing the UK."
Check out some of the slick remixes below.
That artwork is exactly what I can see when I close my eyes and listen to Acre Tarn.
The debut EP will be out in September.
Check out another track from the duo.

If you are a frequent reader of this blog you know I like many styles of music but I have a soft spot for electronica, shoegaze and dream pop.
One of my favorite current bands to combine those styles is Ummagma. They now have a new side project call Sounds of Sputnik.
In their own words...
"Sounds of Sputnik is the brainchild of Roman Kalitkin, whose periodic collaboration with Canadian-Ukrainian indie rock dream pop duo Ummagma has culminated in this 'New Born' LP. This album also features Graham Bonnar (Swervedriver/ Brian Jonestown Massacre) on 'Overdrive', and an array of remixes, including by Malcolm Holmes (Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark) and Fran Ashcroft (Damon Albarn/ Lords of Acid)."
It will be released on August 25, 2014 on Ear to Ear Records.
Check it out below.
Pre-order it HERE.
Please also support the band by ordering one of our Merchandise packs!!
Ummagma are not only working on side projects but they are also available to hire for producing, remixng, mastering and loads of other studio work.
To see what they can do for you, download a nifty brochure for more details.... HERE!! (there is a pdf above the picture you can download!)
