I have known about Kwabs for a while, but he was kind of one of those people that got forgotten about since his music process is one that takes time. With the release of his music video for ‘Right or Wrong‘, earlier this year, he sparked back up on my radar. It seems he is ready to come into the limelight with the release of a fantastic EP, Right or Wrong, and most recently his release of a huge track called ‘Something Right’, which can be heard below.
Kwabs definitely has soul written all over his vocals, but something else can be said about the production behind his big vocal tracks. Most of his tracks are produced by SOHN, which has just recently released material of his own. Kwabs is definitely one to watch for in the coming year, and although with the release of MNEK’s solo tracks adds to his competition, but Kwabs seems to be going in a different direction.
Anyway, keep an eye on this guy in the near future, big things shall happen!
Also, if you want to be at lost for words, watch him perform a track off his EP called ‘Last Stand’ live after the jump!
Another talent that SBTV has highlighted for me named JP Cooper. This guy is more acoustic sounding but you can’t deny that voice on him. JP doesn’t have much going on yet as far as tracks go, he has a couple up on his soundcloud but other than that, you just have to stick to youtube videos for now. The song he is seen above ‘What went wrong’ is probably my favorite that I’ve heard from him so far. Once again, I can’t really say much yet, but keep an eye out on this guy too, big things are coming his way.
SBTV is one of my favorite online sources for new artists, sadly they are mostly all from the UK, but I’ll take a good singer when I can get one, and Ed Thomas is that guy. He was featured on a Chase & Status track titled ‘Blue’, and as seen above, he can do it justice acoustically too. Ed has an EP out titled Outlaws which can be heard at his official website. Other than his EP, he doens’t have anything else out or planned to be released soon, but I would keep an eye on this guy, he is going down the right track!
Just recently discovered BOOTS, and immediately fell in love wit his talent. BOOTS produced one of the biggest superstars tracks, Beyonce’s ‘Haunted/Ghost’. This track ‘Howl’ has a a little bit of each genre within, from soulful vocals to leading into a very dance friendly track towards the end, all while still keeping its R&B roots. This track is everything, and I hope to hear more from this guy, seriously talented!
Most of you probably haven’t heard of these talented guys known as the Afro Deezy Axe, yet. These guys are currently a local band located near the Dallas,Texas area and after a couple of years of gigging locally, they have managed to release an EP, and I have to say it sounds fantastic! The short 5 track EP features some of their best songs and doesn’t even begin to show the aura they give out during a live show. I highly recommend if you’re ever near to check them out!
The above track is the only one I could find in full on Youtube titled ‘Stay With Me’. Definitely check out the others on the EP even if you aren’t a fan of this track, they are all fantastic!
Anyway, you can check out their EP via Spotify and iTunes
Keep up to date with their gigs on facebook
I know it has been a while for the music updates, but it’s about time that I bring this back. What a better way to bring it back from a months break than with the soulful sexy Moko. Moko has been featured on the hit Chase & Status song, ‘Count on Me’ which sits at #15 on the UK top 40 charts. Don’t let her collaboration with them fool you though, this chick has everything it takes to make it on her own, including the vocals.
‘Honey Cocaine’ is vocally huge, and I can’t explain how sexy and smooth the beat is, which at times invokes many chills. The end of the track really showcases her vocal abilities, and I have to say that I can’t wait to hear more from her.
Watch out world!
First discovered Mike Hough just stumbling around on youtube, and immediately fell in love with his vocals. I did some more research at the time and all he had was youtube covers at the time but that has changed quite a lot. This guy is definitely one to watch out for mixing the likes of pop, soul, and R&B, his tracks have definitely have been worthy of the small itunes fee. With inspirations like Adele & Beyonce you can definitely hear their sound on the tracks he creates, but still adds his own touch to it. His vocals are definitely unique and fit well over a smooth R&B track and even a massive pop track. Watch out for this guy in the coming months, and next year!

Rochelle Jordan is bringing smooth R&B vibes back all the way from Canada. I have been following this lady for quite some time now and I’m loving hearing the different tracks she has been dropping. She has just now starting putting on shows, and I can’t say enough how bad I want her to tour the USA or at least Texas. I love everything about her, she has a slight Aaliyah comparison, with a little more of The Weeknd thrown in, and the end result is Rochelle Jordan. Check out her tracks after the jump!
JMSN, formally known as Christian TV, has released just released his debut album last month titled Priscilla, and it is definitely a contender for one of my favorite albums of 2012. He started his journey as Christian TV releasing tracks taking the more dance/pop route with ‘I’m In Love‘, ‘Love 2 Baby‘ and ‘When She Turns 18‘.
