Faith SFX ft Black The Ripper – Swim Good (Rework)


Another relatively new bit of great music here:

An unbelievably good rework of Frank Ocean’s, ‘Swim Good’, courtesy of Faith SFX ft. Black The Ripper.

And if you couldn’t tell, everything you will hear is vocally done – which is just unreal to think.

Also, it’s another amazing cover of a Frank Ocean track. Ed Sheeran, Yasmin Kal Levelle, and I’m sure there’s others too – something about his tracks!

Festival Announcements | Coachella (California)


arguably one of the most well know international festivals worldwide has announced it’s line-up. To proceed Kanye, Arcade Fire and Kings Of Leon last year, it’s managed to pull out some more massive names.

Main headliners – The Black Keys, Radiohead, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg

Bon Iver, Madness, Florence And The Machine, Justice, Arctic Monkeys and The Horrors, Calvin Harris, Nero, Swedish House Mafia, Frank Ocean, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds are the other main names to be playing.

If you’re lucky enough to be able to even consider going, I have a whole lot of envy for you. Great line-up! Especially in a year without Glastonbury and Oxygen, it seems big acts are going to be more available this year?

BBC Sound Of 2012 Results!


20120106-092554.jpgMichael Kiwanuka, the winner of the BBC’s Sound Of 2012 poll! Second was Frank Ocean, third, Azealia Banks, forth, Skrillex, and fifth was Niki &The Dove!

I’d say a very good winner – extremely talented, so its thoroughly deserved!

Right, so there we have it, another year begins, and another successful ‘Sound Of’ poll done by Radio 1. I mean, I would’ve loved to have seen Flux Pavilion and Dot Rotten somewhere in the Top 5 – but it’s pretty assumed that they, and everyone on the long-list, will go on to have a great 2012. However, they won’t be topping charts and being played as often as ‘artists’ like Pitbull or LMFAO during day-time radio will they? It comes back to what I wrote in my ‘Tips For 2013’ effectively, we need to just do a small amount of searching to find talent, which is still untouched and untampered with.

I’m not trying to put a downer on the ‘Sound Of 2012’ at all. Despite the stuck up music bloggers sprinkled over the internet, it’s really a great platform for the artists and bands short-listed! Oh, and if you look at previous winners, Adele, Ellie Goulding, and last years winner, Jessie J, you can see the sort of standard of talent that wins, and the sort of success they go on to achieve!

Wish Michael Kiwanuka the greatest of luck!
Listen and watch him performing live on Jools Holland below!

There really is something about Frank Ocean songs isn’t there – really make for good covers!
