Maxsta - Back of Me (HD Video)

Gotta admit that I feel this is ALOT better than "Average Kid"..

Nilow - Smells Like Dubstep Vol.3 Mix

I just can't get enough of Dubstep at the moment and when there's mixes like this there's no reason to reduce my affection for it..

Yasmin - Starry Eyed (Ellie Goulding Cover) Video

I love Ellie Goulding's original version of "Starry Eyed" and Yasmin's cover is probably just as good..

Vybz Kartel - Give Thanks & Jah Jah Never Fail I (Video)

Kartel would have been better shooting a video for one good song rather than this effort which includes to wack songs..

Video directed by Kirk Lee.

Tennis - Pigeon (HD Video)

Not feeling the video for this, he song is definitely better than the visuals in this case..

Two Door Cinema Club - What You Know (Video)

First heard this band on Fifa 11 but hadn't taken the time to listen to anymore of thier music 'till now. Shame cos they're really good..

Creep - Days ft Romy Madley Croft of The XX (Video)

Gif Created on Make A Gif
For their d├ębut single Creep enlisted the help of The xx's Roma Madley Croft and you can definitely hear The xx's influence in the song. Wanna hear more from the duo after hearing this..

Jessie J - Nobody's Perfect

Two Jessie J posts in a row! I know it might seem a bit much but anything new from this woman is worth hearing and worth sharing..

Jessie J - Price Tag ft. B.o.B. (Video)

What's there not to love about this girl? Not sure which version of  "Price Tag" I prefer: this, the Devlin remix or acoustic - they're all good!..

Skepta - All of The Rights/ So Alive/ Rescue Me (BBC Live Lounge)

Skepta passed through BBC's Live Lounge today and performed a cover of Kanye West's "All of The Lights" as well as "So Alive" which sounded better with a band and "Rescue Me" with a Reggae twist. Nice.

"All of The Lights"

A nice bit of Dubstep to start your day..

Timbaland ft. Attitude & 6 Two – Lil Apartment

#TimbalandThursdays has been WACK so far. Sorry but I had to say it. After all the delays, then this is what Timbo gives us?..

Nicki Minaj - Moment 4 Life ft. Drake (Video)

Minaj's British accent's rubbish but don't let that put you off what is actually a good song. Drake kills it as usual..

Wiz Khalifa – Roll Up

Gotta love what Wiz is doing at the moment. Even when he's not taking about the green he is!..

Ghostface Killah - 2getha Baby (HD Video)

Man, this needs a remix with fellow featuring Raekwon SHARPISH!..

Theophilus London ft. Sara Q - Why Even Try

Have loved Tinie Tempah & Ellie Goulding's "Wonderman" ever since I first heard it. If only all Doctors looked like Ellie..

Along with JME's "Mike Lowery" freestyle this has to be one of the best I've heard. Manga duppied this..

M.I.A. - Internet Connection (Flux Pavilion Remix)

This is just CRAZY..

Kardinal Offishall - The Anthem (Video)

What's the chances of a remix featuring Drake?

Snoop Dogg ft. Trey Songz – Dirty Dancer

First prize goes out to the first person who can correctly guess what language Trey Songz's verse is in and can understand what the hell he is saying in the second verse..

Travis Barker ft. Swizz Beatz, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross & Game – Can A Drummer Get Some?

A pretty weak effort, from this all star line up. Maybe it sounds better live..

Musiq Soulchild ft. Swizz Beatz - Anything

So apparently Swizz Beatz is gonna be 'out of town' next week so he released his #MonsterMondays track early..What happened to wireless internet & 3G? I see you got a BB.
