Must-See: A*M*E – ‘Play The Game Boy’

These days music videos seem more a requirement than an artistic investment. So few churn out visuals that demand the attention of the masses; an ironic shame given the visual age we’re in.

Imagine our surprise, then, when we stumbled upon this epic gem from British newcomer A*M*E.

Aged just 17, the pint-sized singer razzles and dazzles in the video for her infectious debut single ‘Play The Game Boy’ (due November 5th via Future/ Universal Music).

The clip packs gloss aplenty, yet it’s A*M*E herself that shines most. Indeed, between the choreography, weave flicks, and intricate isms, it’s clear the Londoner possesses a confidence and stage presence well beyond her years. What’s more she co-wrote the song too.

She has excited, does she have the same effect on you?

Freshly Squeezed: Introducing…Byron Gold

Enter Byron Gold.

The talented Londoner is drumming up quite the buzz with his debut single ‘Recipe For Love’; unsurprising as his artistic skill-set is a recipe for success.

A singer-songwriter by nature, Gold’s brand of Soul-fused-Pop (not to mention his pin-up appeal and unique tone) renders him a compelling chart prospect for an industry so thirsty for something and someone “different”.

It’s this unique proposition of his which caught the attention of R&B pioneer Keith Sweat, who enlisted the budding star to open for his Indig02 show recently.

*******

Hence, in moulding his buzz and experience into a meatier product, Gold has teamed up with a cast of writers and producers, who’ve crafted hits for the likes of Emeli Sande, Alexandra Burke, Duffy, and JLS.

Be sure to keep an eye out for this rising star.

With Afro-Beats making its long-overdue foray into the mainstream via the likes of D’Banj and Tiwa Savage, next up is Nigerian wonder WizKid.

Already a house-hold name is his West African native, the 23 year old saw his debut album become the fastest selling album in the region too.

And, as if his list of achievements weren’t meaty enough, Wiz won the 2011 MTV EMA Worldwide Act Award and 2011‟s MOBO Award for Best African Act. He is also nominated for Best International act at the 2012 BET Awards.

So pervasive is the rapper’s buzz that hitmaker Akon had no choice but to sit up and sign him to an International deal on his Konvict Music imprint in April of this year.

******

So given the ample hype, naturally one question arises: is it warranted? Check out the video for ‘Pakurumo’ below and let us know!
