by BerNs

That true talent we featured a couple of weeks ago, is back to please his fans with a new video for Keep Your Head Up.

The new visuals are directed by Mickey Smith (the guy who brought us his two previous videos) and Owen Tozer and it was filmed on the Dartington Hall Estate with support from the Arts at Dartington. Its another great and amazing song by Ben Howard and it all indicates we’re gonna have a very strong album on October 3rd when Every Kingdom is released. But until then enjoy the new track bellow:

by luxulterior

Nueva Forma alumni A Gap Between has just released a lush new track to soundtrack the end of Summer. Hailing from rainy Portland Oregon, A Gap Between fills your ear with an eclectic mix of 80s nostalgia with gorgeous vocals and a bucolic backdrop of colour and beats.

Have a listen to Blaster

And while you are at it, enjoy Bonfire; Possibly one of the best chill-Wave songs heard last year.

Breaking Out: LoopTroop Rockers – Professional Dreamers

by kopes

LoopTroop Rockers is a hip-hop group formed in 1991, with the influence of rap from United States and Europe, they have marked their own space within the hip hop scene. Their presentation is very far away from the image projected and associated with American hip-hop, and that distance is visible even in the verses they write for their songs and also in the voice of Promoe, which has a solo career as well.

The group is Promoe, Supreme, Dj Embee and Cosmic and they are now releasing their fifth album Professional Dreamers. The single Magic pops out immediately.  In a nutshell, this music goes about all the good things in life or, as the band explains. “It’s a tribute to the beautiful, magical powers that, often unexplainable, guide us through this world of uncertainty and fears”.

This single is a real pleasure for your ears, and you will immediately feel the urge to hear it over and over again…an extraordinary feeling that only great music can provide. It’s magical. Bellow are two official videos to give you a taste:

 

We, like them, are Professional Dreamers…
