With his latest LP ‘Dark Days + Canapés’ having recked up a mass amount of critical praises, as well as reaching the Top 40 charts, London’s Ghostpoet now unveils the remixes to his single ‘Woe Is Meee’. Producers Slowdive and duo Plaid are called upon to provide the reworks.

If the music of his previous band Virgin Kids represented a sonic explosion of youthful urgency pushed by fiery punk and garage rock, as a solo artist CC Honeymoon’s current sound is an introspective journey examining love, lust and more, powered by seducing pop, electro and new wave rhythms that are hypnotically gripping. Having released his lush debut single ‘Part Time View’ actually under the moniker of CC Honeymoon a couple months back, his follow-up track ‘In The Night’ is a hedonistic and passionate voyage into the experience of the physical connections between two. What could be the soundtrack of a dark, exclusive club full of erotic activities or just a room in a flat where two bodies meet, the song is a pleasurable trek through image-provoking sound. In a way, CC Honeymoon reflects the idea of liberation – a freedom to organically create, a freedom to be that of the most organic and pure. Only just the beginning of this musical travel as a solo act, we’re all up for taking the ride.

We’res surely on board!

When it comes to pumping out recordings, the Godfather of grime himself Wiley, has always had a work rate that has been unmatched. Even though his critically acclaimed ‘Godfather’ album dropped in January of this year, the East London-raised artist is already slated to drop his new LP ‘Godfather II’ in March of 2018.

London band Indigo Husk have shared their latest video ‘Waste of a Year’. Whilst the boys describe the track itself as a break up song, the lead companion in the video is well, a mannequin.

We’re just posing the question. ‘Waste of a Year’ is directed by Andy King. Read more […]
