DONAE'O "The Party's Over Here" brand new single out now

North-West London’s finest Donae’o marks his triumphant return with the release of his brand new single ‘The Party’s Over Here’ on April 16th via Moving Anti/Island Records.
Written and produced by Donae’o in collaboration with singer, songwriter and producer Shakka, ‘The Party’s Over Here’ is the second single to be taken from his forthcoming debut solo album; with Island Records, which is slated for release in the final quarter of 2019. The follow up release to his 2017 mixtape ‘Sixteen’, “The Party’s Over Here” features production heavyweights such as Take a day trip and 1st of FKI, to name but two.

The single follows the massive smash hit ‘Chalice’, which featured Calvin Harris as well as US Superstar XO artist Belly. ‘Chalice’ remains one of most played hits on national radio over the last six months.

Donae’o has achieved great success as one of the most culturally significant musicians in British urban and pop music. For many years now, the musical ‘swiss army knife’ has been serving up banger after banger using his many musical skills … there isn’t much that the North West Londoner can’t do. From classic UK anthems such as ‘Party Hard’, ‘Black’ with JME and Dizzee while featuring in and producing Giggs’ national hit ‘Lock Doh’, the musical powerhouse never fails to deliver. Now, with his next single about to hit radio, Donae’o looks set to continue to be a major force in the UK music scene.

Australian singer songwriter, Dean Lewis starts UK Tour Today

The Australian singer songwriter is also set to play his biggest UK headline tour this month, adding a second Shepherds Bush Empire headline on 16 April and regional shows due to popular demand.

Dean Lewis catapulted into the UK top 15 with the Platinum selling “Be Alright”, racking up 350M global Spotify streams, before dropping the stunning new single “7 Minutes”. Bittersweet memories of past romance is the thread that runs through the 12-track debut LP, “All the songs were written through relationships I’d been in and houses I used to live in and hotel rooms,” says Lewis.

A trip to the UK in 2016 saw Lewis team up with producers Edd Holloway and Nick Atkinson at The Barn studio in North London, a partnership that not only led to ‘Waves’, 4 x Platinum ARIA single ‘Be Alright’ and a significant portion of A Place We Knew, but set in motion a whirlwind 24 months as Lewis went from an unknown to a globally recognised hitmaker. Dean Lewis’ debut album demonstrates a far greater breadth and depth to his song writing than ever before; “The EP was me throwing things at a wall. I didn’t really know who I was. Now I have a good sense of what’s me,” says Dean, pointing to three key ingredients that unite his work: “The way I write lyrics, which is very first person; the acoustic guitar; and the rawness. They’re the three things that tie it all together.”

Now with over a billion streams of his music globally and being named Billboard’s “Chart-Breaker” in October, Dean has topped local and international charts with “Be Alright”. “Be Alright” topped the Apple Music, Shazam, iTunes and Spotify Charts in Australia, peaking at #1 in 6 markets and Top 10 in 23 countries on iTunes, and reaching the Top 5 in 13 markets on Apple Music. Dean now has over 15 Million monthly listeners on Spotify.

AMWIN Drops visual for her lead single “Dua Lipa” from debut EP "AMWIN IN WONDERLAND"

On the heels of releasing her highly-anticipated debut EP, 'AMWIN in Wonderland', Swedish artist on the rise AMWIN has dropped a stunning visual for her lead single "Dua Lipa". Produced by Carl Lehman and Carli LΓΆf, the song departs from the blonde stunners signature sass and showcases a beautiful depth and vulnerability. AMWIN shared, "I wanted to make a song that's just about straight up being in love with someone. No compromising. No playing it cool. Just straight 'I love you, I love you, I love you. Please don't break my fragile heart'."

For the "Dua Lipa" music video, Grammy nominated director Nicolina Knapp wanted to show an expression of the internal struggle of falling in love. She brought to life a concept of being overwhelmed by the feeling of love and so fearful of ending up heartbroken you try to escape that feeling by shutting down. Not giving that person the power to mess up your mind. Knapp transports the viewer into AMWINs wonderland, using the song itself as the sound of her inner voice trying to break free from the control. Stylist and designer Selam Fessahaye evolved the fantasy further with her breathtaking costuming.

Swedish artist on the rise , AMWIN Releases Imaginative Debut EP "AMWIN in Wonderland"

March 29th, marked the release of Swedish artist on the rise AMWINs highly-anticipated debut EP, 'AMWIN in Wonderland'. A collision of pop, hip-hop, and electronic soundscapes, AMWIN collaborated with songwriters/producers like Carli LΓΆf (Robyn, Galantis), Jay Weathers (Not3s, Jacob Banks), and Carl Lehman (Liam Payne, Panic At The Disco!), adorning each track with otherworldly beats and luminous textures and her own madcap vocal twists.
While much of AMWIN's material embodies a certain restless attitude, lead single "Dua Lipa" unfolds as a full-tilt love song, a magnificent bop built on her heart-on-sleeve lyrics. The EP then drifts into an edgier mood on her first three singles "DeLorean", "Living Mistake", and "Uber" - which caught support from Hypebae, Highsnobiety, Clash Magazine, MILK, and more. When asked about the inspiration behind the project, AMWIN shared, "This EP lets you in to the ambivalent mind of a young women. A world that's often upside down. On one side super fucking happy and amazing, on the other side super fucking sad and pissed off. Too many emotions to count. Finally, after hours of blood, sweat and tears, they turned in to my debut EP. I'm so stoked to finally share it with you".

Every AMWIN song is an escape into the world inside her head, a beautifully strange fantasia populated by glamorous misfits and glorious monsters, libertines and Bright Young Things, '80s movie idols and '90s rock-and-roll stars. On her EP AMWIN in Wonderland, the Stockholm-based artist brings that world to life with her hypnotically glossy yet minimalist pop, delivering a debut that's equal parts elegant fever dream and sharply detailed confession of her deepest desires.

Growing up in Gothenburg, AMWIN first discovered her artistic streak and love of music as a little girl, when she obsessed over hyper-creative and idiosyncratic stars like Missy Elliott and Sinead O'Connor. "I always dreamed of making music, but I was living out in the countryside and it just seemed impossible," says AMWIN. "At some point I realized, 'I don't want to die depressed because I didn't even try.'" At age 18 she landed a spot on Swedish Idol, which soon led to her signing to Universal Music Sweden. Since kickstarting her music career she's taken a decidedly self-possessed approach to every aspect of her output, including conceptualizing her videos: an element that further blurs the boundaries between fantasy and reality, with each visual revealing AMWIN's refined cinematic sensibilities along with her fantastically goofball humor.

With the release of her debut EP, AMWIN hopes that her own creative journey might spark a new sense of freedom in others: the freedom to feel too much, to make an extraordinary mess of your heart, and—maybe most of all—to wildly contradict yourself whenever it feels right. "I really just wanted to allow myself to not make sense, because I think that's so true to life: we often don't make much sense in the way we act or the way we feel," she says of AMWIN in Wonderland. "I want everyone to know that every emotion or thought is okay, because when you accept yourself instead of judging yourself, it's so much easier to feel good. I guess that's my purpose with all of this: to just let everything out, so we can all feel good about who we really are."

Jessie Buckley "Born to Run" (From "Wild Rose") single out now. (

BAFTA Rising star nominee Jessie Buckley, one of the fastest rising actors in cinema, looks set to take the music world by storm as the star and voice of the gritty, inspirational and heart-warming film WILD ROSE. Written by legendary country star Emmylou Harris, “Born To Run” is the second song to be lifted from the “Wild Rose” OST (April 12). The accompanying video finds Jessie in her element performing this anthemic song which is central to the film’s narrative.

“Born To Run” soundtracks a key moment in the film and is performed by Buckley with passion, verve and genuine vocal prowess. Adding a new string to her bow Jessie got so involved in the music and the process that she ended up writing six of the album’s songs with the film’s Bafta winning writer Nicole Taylor and has since performed the songs live. The Original Soundtrack will be released on Island Records on April 12th, the same day the film hits the screens in the UK.

Starring alongside Julie Walters and Sophie Okonedo, the Irish born Buckley plays Rose-Lynn Harlan, a single mother of two, fresh out of prison, bursting with raw talent, charisma and cheek. Her dream is to leave Glasgow for Nashville to make it as a country star. Her mum, Marion (Julie Walters), has had a bellyful of her nonsense. Forced to take responsibility, Rose-Lynn gets a cleaning job, only to find an unlikely champion in the middle-class lady of the house, Susannah (Sophie Okonedo). Directed by BAFTA nominee Tom Harper (The Scouting Book For Boys), produced by BAFTA nominee Faye Ward (Stan & Ollie) and written by BAFTA award-winning writer Nicole Taylor (Three Girls, The C Word), WILD ROSE is an uplifting story with an original soundtrack about family, dreams and reality – or as succinctly put throughout the film, “three chords and the truth.”

RADA graduate Buckley’s TV performances include the role of Princess Marya in BBC hit-adaptation of Tolstoy’s epic novel “WAR AND PEACE” and starring opposite Tom Hardy in historic drama series “TABOO”.

This April she will be seen in the HBO / Channel 4 series “CHERNOBYL” alongside Emily Watson. In 2018 Jessie had her first lead role in Michael Pearce’s critically acclaimed film “BEAST”, co-starring with Johnny Flynn. The film opened to rave reviews and Jessie won the most promising newcomer award at the British Independent Film Awards. 

2019 promises to be a very busy year for Buckley with co-starring roles alongside Renee Zellweger in Judy garland biopic “Judy” and “The Voyage Of Doctor Doolittle” alongside Robert Downey Jr.

Sigrid Announces her biggest headline tour. Debut album "Sucker Punch" out 8th March.

Today Sigrid announces her biggest headline tour to date commencing in November 2019, performing at London’s Eventim Apollo and 3Arena in Dublin, alongside huge regional venues. The Norwegian pop star is set to release her highly anticipated debut album Sucker Punch on 8 March, and continues her A-List record success with the defiant single ‘Don’t Feel Like Crying’, which Sigrid performed on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night. Fans can get priority access for tickets on the pre-order link below, and tickets go on general sale on 1 March.

The 22-year-old’s epic songs are tales of the unexpected; fearless musical collages and shout-outs to human resilience, starting at the piano in Norway, “There’s a certain grace to heartache”, says Sigrid, “A sort of…epic grace! I like good, heartfelt pop songs,” which is the foundation of Sigrid’s extraordinary debut Sucker Punch.

Sigrid’s rebellious pop was catapulted into the public consciousness with the zeitgeist defining ‘Don’t Kill My Vibe’; the certified-Gold ‘Strangers’, A-List record ‘High Five’, critically lauded RAW EP and new single ‘Sucker Punch’. With performances at The Royal Variety Show, the Nobel Peace Prize and headlining Brixton Academy under her belt, Sigrid is set to tour the UK next month with George Ezra, playing arena’s including O2 London.

We have all witnessed an incredible new talent over the last two years: Sigrid has won BBC Sound of 2018, debuted at Glastonbury, lit up festivals across Reading, Roskilde, Coachella and Radio 1’s Biggest Weekend, bewitched TV audiences from opening Later…with Jools Holland, The Late Late Show with James Corden and wowing Dame Helen Mirren on the Graham Norton Show. With streaming numbers reaching 570M globally, the Norwegian sensation is undoubtedly set to continue her ascent with non-conformist and progressive attitudes to the femininity in the pop landscape.

"7 rings" Lyrics:
Breakfast and Tiffany’s
And bottles of bubbles
Girls with tattoos who like getting in trouble Lashes and diamonds
ATM machines
Buy myself all of my favorite things
Been through some bad shit
I should be a sad bitch
Who woulda thought it’d turn me to a savage Rather be tied up with calls and not strings
Write my own checks like I write what I sing

My wrist
Stop watching
My neck
Is flossy
Make big deposits
My gloss is poppin
You like my hair?
Gee thanks, just bought it
I see it
I like it
I want it
I got it yuh

I want it, I got it
I want it, I got it
I want it, I got it
I want it, I got it
You like my hair?
Gee thanks, just bout it
I see it, I like it, I want it, I got it

Wearing a ring but not cause I’m no mrs.
Bought matching diamonds for 6 of my bitches
I’d rather spoil all my friends with my riches
Think retail therapy my new addiction
Who ever said money can’t solve your problems Must not have had enough money to solve them They say which one I say nah I want all of em Happiness is the same price as red bottoms

My smile is beaming
My skin is gleaming
The way it shine I know you seen it
I bought a crib just for the closet
Both his and hers
I want it
I got it yuh

I want it, I got it
I want it, I got it
I want it, I got it
I want it, I got it
You like my hair?
Gee thanks, just bout it
I see it, I like it, I want it, I got it

Yea my receipts be looking like phone numbers
If it ain’t money then wrong number
Black card is my business card
The way it be setting the tone for me
I don’t mean to brag but I be like
Put it in the bag (Yea)
When you see them racks
They stacked up like my ass yea (Shoot)
Go from the store to the booth
Make it all back in one loop
Gimme the loot
Never mind I got the juice
Nothing but net when we shoot
Look at my neck
Look at my jet
Ain’t got enough money to pay me respect
Ain’t no budget when I’m on the set
If I like it then that’s what I get
uh huh

MIRAA MAY DROPS ‘NOBODY’ VIDEO

Today Miraa May releases her second video ‘Nobody’, filmed by friend Mahaneela (Sampha, Steve Lacy) as a montage of Miraa’s enlightening trip to LA. The personal VHS home video feel and the surrounding LA backdrop capture Miraa’s positive policy of self confidence: “I wanted the video to be extremely inclusive. My main goal was for people of all races and religions to feel represented and appreciated, and to shed light on positivity because the world has been so dark recently. It was starting to suck the life out of me. I also wanted to showcase how beautiful happiness is. When I watch the video I feel happy,” says Miraa in an interview with Notion.

‘Nobody’ is lifted from Care Package, the 5-track EP which introduces a new artist who will make you move, think, laugh, cry and feel. The Algerian born, Tottenham based singer-songwriter takes inspiration from the north London streets where she grew up, from the friendships and the experiences of a life lived.

In 2014 Miraa May debuted with her first EP titled ‘The Beginning’. The EP, alongside a handful of raw and soulful live performances, attracted the ears of Award winning, legendary producer Salaam Remi (Amy Winehouse, Nas, The Fugees) who produced her second EP N15. Now Miraa releases her most unapologetic, frank and heartfelt collection yet. ‘Care Package’ documents a young woman living life to the full, discussing big themes like love, life, sadness, relationships, cooking, gaming or Anime (which inspired the Care Package artwork). These five songs, and if you take some time to check out Miraa’s Instagram, give an insight into the character behind this remarkable music. ‘Care Package’ is out now on Island Records.
