Best In Music Take Over The MUZU Blog!


At Best In New Music our job is to sift through the piles and piles of new music that is released each day and bring you the best (and only the best!). So the good folks at MUZU.TV asked us to compile a list with our pick of new artists and tunes to watch out for. Since new music is our speciality we, gladly accepted the challenge!

 Rita Ora - R.I.P. feat. Tinie Tempah 
21 year-old London based singer Rita Ora is signed to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation imprint. She has already had a taste of success having featured on the UK's first ever Drum & Bass Number 1 single, DJ Fresh’s “Hot Right Now “. She is now gearing up to release her debut UK single “R.I.P.” which was written by none other than Drake, features Tinie Tempah and was produced by Chase & Status and Stargate!
 

 King Charles - Lady Percy
King Charles is an English indie singer/ songwriter from West London. He plays the guitar, piano, and cello. His styling may be from the past but his Folk-Pop inspired Indie Rock music is timeless. King Charles’ debut album Loveblood is released in May and is certain to ensure he stays on the throne for many years to come.
 

 Lianne La Havas - Lost & Found
Lianne La Havas is a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Her songs are a mix of Folk and Soul music and are highly emotive. Having toured with Bon Iver, she is now preparing to release her debut album Is Your Love Big Enough? in July. Definitely someone worth checking out!

 L Marshall - The Wait Pt. 2 
Having written Loick Essien's No.2 smash “How We Roll” and co-written Wretch 32 ‘s first UK number 1 with “Traktor”, L Marshall is ready to make some hits of his own. “The Wait” Remix is a taste of what he has to offer and what we can expect from this talented singer/ songwriter.

 J. Cole feat. Missy Elliott - Nobody's Perfect 
 Grammy nominated rapper and producer, J. Cole was the first signee to Jay-Z’s label Roc Nation. His debut album, Cole World: The Sideline Story, was released last year and debuted at number 1 on the US Billboard charts. J. Cole has toured with Rihanna and Drake and has even worked with both Jay and Beyonce!

Plan B - ill Manors
Before he released his soul album, The Defamation of Strickland Banks, Plan B was known as a rapper/actor and he has returned to his roots with his new single “ill Manors”. The song is the title track to Plan B’s new film which he directed and addresses the issues surrounded last summer’s riots. “ill Manors” proves that Plan B definitely hasn't lost it!

 Santigold - Disparate Youth
Santigold’s debut album didn’t notch up any huge sales but it was received well by critics, Kanye West sampled her and Drake and Lil Wayne remixed one her songs - so she didn’t do too badly. “Disparate Youth” is her brilliant new single and further proof that Santigold is a leader not a follower went it comes to her music.
 

 B.Traits – Fever
“Fever” is the debut single from Canadian born DJ and record producer, B. Traits. It is a brilliant feel good record with reminiscent of 90’s Dance music; a welcome contrast to Dubstep. I haven’t heard a lot from her but based on what I have heard I can say that she is definitely one to watch. 
 

 Various Cruelties - Neon Truth
Various cruelties are one of the new bands that we are most excited about. The band’s self titled debut album is released at the end of this month and their new single “Neon Truth” is a good example of the cruelty the band specialises in - killer songs!

 Usher – Climax
It’s been more than 2 years since the multiple Grammy winning and multimillion record selling Usher Raymond released an album. His new Diplo produced single “Climax” is a taste of what’s to come and proof that the hits won’t stop coming from Usher.

 Willy Moon - Yeah Yeah
Willy Moon writes, records and produces everything on his own and keeps everything short, none of his songs exceed the 3 minute mark. He is a lover of all things Pop pre 1960 and that can be seen in his styling and heard in his music. “Yeah Yeah” is Willy’s Wu Tang Clan sampling new single and needs to be heard now!
