L-Vis 1990 first single Lost In Love and debut album Neon Dreams

"Lost In Love" is the first single to be taken from L-Vis 1990's forthcoming debut album, Neon Dreams. Continuing a collaborative partnership which began on last year's "Forever You" single, breakthrough Bristol-based vocalist Javeon McCarthy once again takes centre stage here. Through its melodious analogue synths, infectious vocal hooks and sub-4 minute running length, "Lost In Love" in many ways serves as the ideal entrĂ©e to Neon Dreams. This is the sound of L-Vis 1990 revisiting the routes of his dance music love affair. Picking up his own theme from the original—the classic French bassline—L-Vis 1990's Neon Dreams Club Mix pushes the low-end triumphantly to the fore. 'Club' is certainly the operative word here; feel the remix's Bangalter-esque bassline drop and your mind's eye fixes instinctively upon an undulating dancefloor. The Night Slugs Allstars—L-Vis 1990, Bok Bok, Jam City—also take the 'floor on their version, albeit via the neon-tinged scenic route. Much like the label itself, their remix is replete with colour, difficult to define and relentlessly innovative. Dub versions of both remixes come bundled with the package.

AnGeL‘7 Minutes Before Time’ EP out now

AnGeL is stepping up to fill the spot of a UK R&B Renaissance man who can produce, sing, write and rap. Produced by his Parallel Music production house ‘7 Minutes Before Time’ is where his song writing meets the best of the UK’s road writers. In order of appearance; Maxsta, Wiley, Temps, Giggs, Scorcher, Gfrsh, Sneakbo, Wretch 32. As a writer/producer AnGeL has some pedigree– they wrote Roll Deep’s #1 smash ‘Green Light’ and has written for pop superstar Pixie Lott. For the ‘7MBT’ EP they have assembled a ridiculously strong team of the ‘about to blow’, the legendary and a #1 chart star. The self released videos for the EP have racked up 500,000 views on AnGeL’s Youtube channel by word of mouth. It opens with a cantankerous sample from Peter Tosh (a nod to AnGeL’s family’s musical roots, his Dad was a major reggae keyboard player). What follows is mix of the ‘nasty and the nice at the same time’ in his own words. ‘Gleamin’ see’s West London’s finest meet East’s; Maxsta and Wiley contributing fiery bars – grime’s godfather and youngest blood blessing the track.‘Raining Girls’ is a swagged out tribute to the ladies. ‘Popstar’ deals directly with questioning voices in the scene over an adrenaline filled track with rock guitar and Giggs drops his ‘six figure’ verses. ‘Bottles’ is a squiggly-synthed club banger. ‘Hard’ shows off the song-writing side to AnGeL’s talent. ‘Ride Out’ is pure feel good riddim, with a Calypso influence on the piano and 2011’s new face of road rap Sneakbo.  ‘Go In, Go Hard’ is a huge sounding track, the perfect backdrop for #1 star Wretch 32’s flow. EP closer ‘Ladder’ tracks AnGeL’s struggle and tribulations up to this point. AnGeL is the most compelling mix of grit and glamma UK R&B has in 2011.

LIL WAYNE: THE RETURN OF THE LEGEND, THA CARTER IV

Multi-Grammy-winning, multiplatinum hip-hop superstar Lil Wayne released his latest album “Tha Carter IV”, on August 29th. The feverishly anticipated follow-up to his game-changing 2008 set “Tha Carter III”. The album, released via Young Money/Cash Money Records,  includes the new single “She Will” featuring Drake, as well as recent singles “6 foot 7 foot” (ft Cory Gunz), “John” (ft Rick Ross) and “How To Love”, all of which debuted in the Top 10 on US iTunes. “THA CARTER IV” is Wayne’s 10th album in all, and sees the New Orleans rapper returning to his hip hop roots and cementing his reputation as the greatest rapper alive. The last decade has seen Weezy establish himself as arguably the most influential artist hip hop has seen in years, with more than 10 million records sold, a staggering eight Grammy nominations for the seminal Tha Carter III, and shattering records by selling over one million copies in its first week of release. The New Orleans native who hails from the rough streets of Hollygrove is a veteran artist who released his first tracks at age of 12 after he was introduced to Cash Money CEOs Ronald “Slim” Williams and Bryan “Birdman” Williams. He released the first instalment of Tha Carter series in 2004, followed by Tha Carter II in 2006, which further solidified Lil Wayne’s status as one of the best MCs in the hip hop game. But it was with the release in 2008 of Tha Carter III that Lil Wayne became a genuine worldwide superstar, paving the way for his advisory role to grow as CEO of Young Money Records. Since then Young Money has given us debut albums from two of the hottest new artists to emerge from the US in recent years, Drake and Nicki Minaj.
