Alex Vargas - Solid Ground (Live Video)

I can't recall ever making a live performance Song of The Day, but that's where Alex Vargas' "Solid Ground" differs. It is probably the best live performance you'll see today; Alex's voice is amazing especially when it comes alive on the chorus and along with the guitar they perfectly convey the song's emotion. Doesn't look like the song's been released, so Alex better get moving - this is a beauty!

Highly Recommended: GERGAZ - Beat Garden Compilation 4 (Mixtape)

GERGAZ's Beat Garden Compilation 4 is the fourth instalment of the label's annual compilation series. The label was created to help and promote new musicians get their music out and listened to. The most telling thing about Beat Garden Compilation 4 is that picking a favourite is hard, very hard. Unlike some label compilations, the music is of the highest quality; bass music fans are in for one hell of a treat with this one! GERGAZ's Beat Garden Compilation 4 compilation is available to download for free on Bandcamp.

VUURWERK - Wakening ft. Climb X (Video)

Not gonna lie, I didn't understand any of what was going on in VUURWERK's new video "Wakening". The music however was fantastic and even better than that is the fact that the Belgian trio's new single is free! You can download "Wakening" for free from VUURWERK's Soundcloud page.

Oh Wonder - The Rain

While some 'artists' struggle to put out even one good song in their whole career, London based duo Oh Wonder (Anthony & Josephine) will be releasing a new song every month for a year. The duo are on their fifth instalment of the series with new track "The Rain" and it's one of the best yet. It's a shame that it's not available to purchase although Spotify users will be happy to know that it's available on the music streaming service. The duo's songs are the musical equivalent of a warm hug in the winter, perfect for freezing days like today.

Jess Glynne - Hold My Hand

Following last summer's massive track "Right Here", North London singer Jess Glynne is back with new single "Hold My Hand". She's got an evident gift for songwriting having previously written and sung on Route 94's "My Love" and Clean Bandit's "Real Love" both of which were UK Top 10s. "Hold My Hand" has a feel good disco feel to it and Jesse's soulful vocals continue to shine. "Hold My Hand" is due to be released 23rd March on Atlantic Records.

Tove Styrke - Ego

Swedish singer Tove Styrke will release her debut US album Kiddo this Spring via RCA, the album's latest track is "Ego". The song starts in UK Funky territory but blossoms into dance track with massive Pop appeal. Tove Styrke's Kiddo will definitely be an interesting one.
