The new 12 track album from Brutha White features his instantly recognisable blues sound which really needs no introduction.

This album is the perfect evidence of how over the years he has really honed his sound to the perfection that it is now. He has taken inspiration from multiple different genres including jazz and country allowing all his songs to sound mature and expertly crafted. He plays beautiful guitar riffs which sound effortless but full of skill whilst perfectly reinventing the blues scene.

Having been recorded in a room surrounded entirely by wood, his first full length album has a natural sound but if packed full of his jazz infused sound. Although White has already had much success playing with acts such as Samantha Fish and Digital Underground, this album looks like the perfect material to propel him further on his musical journey.

This is a beautiful sounding album and gives Brutha White a real edge compared to other blues artist. Overall, a lovely album which requires no effort to listen to. Perfect summer listening and I recommend you add it to your playlists.

With a sound akin to the likes of Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix and the experimentalism of Frank Zappa and Gorillaz, Bull Funk Zoo are something that Im very glad showed up in my inbox this morning.


The first track on the album entitled 'Dangerous Radio' is called 'Burnin' and is a fantastic opener for the album featuring a very weighty guitar riff and super fat drums that underpin the total sense of strength and power behind the music. The guitar solo in the latter part of the track really highlights the bands ability to accentuate and compliment their own music without deviating from the level of perfection that is so evident upon listening to them.


'Hangover' is one of my favourite tracks on the album. Beginning with a warmingly distorted rhodes piano riff that then continues throughout the track followed by an amusing and I'm sure, relatable to many, dialogue. Then you have a storming drum beat with some of the cleanest production I've ever heard on them. Topped by distorted vocals that help add the depiction of the brain fuzz feeling of a hangover, the track creates a vibe that you may not want to listen to whilst hungover but one that youll enjoy to no end whilst you feel alive.


My second favourite on the album has got to be 'whiskey', now I know this review may sound a bit too alcohol focussed, but it's strictly to do with the music! Again similar to the track 'Hangover' it is partly due to their integration of keys and synthesis. As well as that the angular and syncopated riffs are absolutely fantastic and just show the bands virtuosity. So many special effects and crazy shredding lines in this one, I absolutely love it!

‘With You’ from American pop group The Northcoast Stars’ is an indie pop track with amazing sounding guitar riffs, thumping beats and catchy lyrics. Their experience as a band and individual musical talents are clearly evident on this track which is the perfect summer sound and makes for effortless listening.

Watch/Listen to "With You" here:

The song has strong nods towards the British alternative band The XX and the London based alt-pop duo Oh wonder. I love their electro sound and fun bubbly melodies and guitars, it really makes for a brilliant sounding track.

I think the song would be the perfect background music for a summer barbeque with friends and would go down well with a nice refreshingly cold glass of Pimms.

Go and add this to your playlists and follow their social medias so you can keep your eyes peeled for what they come out with next!

The banging remix of 'Wreckless' by J Keys gets the track from the streets to the clubs and gets you dancing the night away. With constant progression throughout the track you’re never bored of hearing the same build up or the same drop and you’ll never hear a Dj skip it half way through.

Stream the remix on Soundcloud here: https://soundcloud.com/j-keys-official/j-keys-wreckless-the-remix

The song is a fun and energetic club remix of his original track ‘Wreckless’. It is full of energy and power yet interestingly does not lose the motivation behind its lyrics. As soon as the song starts you can feel yourself wanting to move and dance along, meaning this is the perfect track for a fun drink fuelled summer night out.

It is not at all hard to see how J has already had much success with previous releases having worked with Little Mix vocalist Megan Cotton. Over the past 10 years that he has been making music, every release of his has been welcomed with open arms by all of his fans! His debut album released a few years ago propelled him to where he is now and in my opinion this track will take him even further on his musical journey. I would say this is a track to add to the playlists if you are having a summer party, keep your eyes peeled for what he will come out with next...

The video is set for release on 8th August

After a brain injury left him unable to walk or talk, marathon-runner and singer-songwriter Adam Lanceley has defied all odds, now releasing his new creative single ‘The Dream of Yesterday’.

As a child, Adam Lanceley was involved in car crash suffering a crushed pelvis, damage to his legs and a serious brain injury. Doctors said it would be unlikely that he’d ever walk or talk again. Determined to prove them wrong, Adam has since achieved incredible feats.

Watch this video to hear his story: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0fIBwSXvlCs

Presented by the late HRH Princess Diana, Adam’s recovery was so remarkable that he was one of 150 children to achieve the McDonald’s Child of Achievement. Before realising his passion for music, his sights were set on acting, getting offered a place at The BRIT school (which he now regrets turning down!).

Adam was still able to find a place at East 15 Acting School, but soon found acting wasn’t for him: ‘This might have been a step too far - coupled with my vulnerable nature, a side effect of my head injuries, it had a detrimental impact on my mental health. I began to find acting too restrictive & had a lot of my own feelings that I would rather express in my own way, rather than someone else’s ideas in a script.’

Choosing to pursue a music career, Adam has already released several albums slowly developing his sound into the unique brand it is today. Deliberately relying on an old-skool production style and using unconventional instrumentation, his new colourful album Postcards From Then… is a must-listen for anyone looking for something a little left-field.

If learning to speak again wasn’t already impressive enough, Adam has pushed himself to become a singer, developing his own unique vocal style: ‘I still have the gift of being able to communicate emotion and feeling through my music. What makes it more meaningful to me is that relearning my life skills includes having to learn to talk again.’

Adam is dedicated to raising money for The Brain and Spine Foundation and has run a number of 10k runs and two marathons in support.

Postcards From Then… is set to be released May 23rd
