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.

Freshly Squeezed: Introducing…WizKid

WizKid BB 4 e1338760161675 Freshly Squeezed: Introducing...WizKid

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!

WizKid makes his London tour debut on June 4th. Click here for ticket details.

Freshly Squeezed: Introducing…Little Nikki

Aged just 16, newcomer Little Nikki is drumming up quite the buzz. And with good reason.

The West Londoner posits a flavoursome mix of Synth-Pop and British Grime, a blend best showcased on her aptly titled intro single ‘Intro Intro’.

A fact which shouldn’t be diluted though is Nikk’s is ability to be “genre chameleon”; possessing the uncanny talent of  dabbling in various sounds, while making them her own. It’s a skill no doubt attributable to her wealth of talent – which also sees her pen her own songs.

Hailed as “Rihanna meets Azaelia Banks”, this young talent (who has toured with Justin Bieber) has many industry folk raving. Does she have you doing the same, though? Check out the clip above and let us know what you think below!

Who is Cleo Sol?

 It’s a question no doubt on the minds of many reading this. Yet, it’s a question the Londoner provides an emphatic answer to with debut single ‘Never The Right Time’.

British bred, the 22 year old has been a fixture on the London live circuit, drumming up a buzz which carried her into Island Records late last year. There she would ink her first major label deal.

Since then, Sol has been cooking up her hotly anticipated LP, the first taste of which you can hear below…

Introducing…Conor Maynard (Live On The Splash)

In an era where record deals are becoming scarcer and scarcer, there’s something to be said when hitmakers Ne-Yo and Pharrell Williams both want to sign you.

Such was the predicament 19 year old Conor Maynard found himself in before eventually inking a lucrative deal with EMI Music last year.

Discovered online, the Brighton-bred star has seen his buzz boom; with his Twitter following topping the 160,000 mark and the Youtube views on the video for debut single ‘Can’t Say No’ sitting at over 4 million. All this prior to actually releasing any material.

Impressive? Yes! Surprising? No so much. For, Maynard presents quite the compelling “package”. Indeed, his sound skillfully and genuinely fuses “Pop” and “Urban” in a way many acts beyond his age are still striving to achieve.

Naturally, Maynard’s look and artistic direction have seen comparisons to a certain Justin Bieber drawn – especially with the latter now flirting with a harder/Urban sound. And they’re comparisons we’re sure will only intensify when Maynard hits the US in May.

However, pending then, watch the budding star justify his buzz on That Grape Juice’s The Splash.  Peep his performance of ‘Can’t Say No’ above and the track’s official video below. Get familiar with the name and face, as you’ll be seeing much more of it!
