Whilst disco might seem like a genre of the past, back in the 70s when people were still wearing flared trousers, Anna Chiara and Felicia Singson of Tsunami Section are resurrecting a touch of the style in their brand of catchy pop music.
‘Keep My Spinning Wheel’, their new single, fuses an infectious pop-hook with a foot-tapping beat that you’ll find it hard to not move to. Consequently, the track is the perfect dance-floor anthem, whether you’re looking back to you disco days or you’re a regular frequenter of the club.
However, ‘Keep My Spinning Wheel’ is not just a great track for the ears, there’s subtext behind it too. Exploring the idea of karma in a positive sense, the track, written by Oliver Fell-Holden, looks at how no matter what life throws at you, there is always another chance.
The duo have a strong musical pedigree too, having performed at over 100 venues in the past, whilst Anna has even recorded an album with famed London producer, David Ezra.
Love and Money’s James Gant links up with Steely Dan’s producer Gary Katz to debut new Korvids EP ‘Bad Faith’.
Gant was the front man for Love and Money, everyone’s favourite band from the 1980’s who should’ve been massive but somehow weren’t. The other half of The Korvids, Gordy Goudie, is also no stranger to the business having produced music for Simple Minds and played bass and guitar for The Primevals and Echo And The Bunnymen.
The original ‘Bad Faith’ track features Grant in full falsetto vocal mode, underpinned by soul-dance grooves and punchy horns. For the remixes of ‘Bad Faith’ Gary Katz brings it back to the 70’s with a US soul rock sound, contrasting with Kim and Buran’s ‘Sundowner’ remix riding the nu-disco vibe. Push To Break completes the remixes with their pulsing electronic ‘E Mix’, giving the EP an entirely eclectic sound.
Also featured on the EP is synth bass track ‘Blisters’, layered with heavy drums and guitar. The original track is followed by a 1980’s remix ‘Gordy’s Extended Edition’.

Having gone to number 1 on Zone Radio’s Top 40 Charts, getting his track played on Play Boy TV daily and receiving airplay on Tom Robinson’s BBC Introducing Mixtape, Jake Aldridge returns with ‘Fireman’ featuring Lisa Ambrose. Fusing RnB and hip-hop, Aldridge tells the captivating story of losing the person you love, a theme he is all too familiar with after losing his own father at the age of 11.
When Jake was 11, his father passed away in a tragic accident, forcing him to later use music as a form of therapy. Unlike many musicians, music wasn’t in Jake’s blood but as he began to write, he discovered he was a confident lyricist and started to master rapping. Music became a positive way of expressing his emotions as well as offering others a form of comfort.
‘Fireman’ features the singer-songwriter Lisa Ambrose, who recently won Battle Of The Bandstands, hosted by BBC Radio 1’s Rob The Bank. This led to Ambrose supporting Mark Ronson and now collaborating with Jake Aldridge. Inspired by the likes of Tupac Shakur and Dr Dre, Jake believes his music is entirely honest and offers his fans an insight to his life and emotions. The song has been produced by Ninety II, an up and coming producer from Bristol.
Urban artist KADI is releasing her empowering new single ‘Turn U On’, after having worked with Moorish Delta 7, Baby J and supporting Omar. Her new track pushes forward a powerful message all through an R&B, hip-hop and pop tinted lens.
Lauren Hill’s style and talents are just one inspiration for KADI who is looking to empower women by showing them that they don’t need to adhere to the stereotypical conventions of the media. KADI believes that the music industry portrays an image where “having a big ass or showing your breasts gets you attention” but this is not a healthy image in KADI’s view.
‘Turn U On’ comes from a time when KADI was living in New York and a producer of hers told her to conform to this idea. She refused, and the outcome has been ‘Turn U On’.
