Male voices don’t come much more powerful than Russian singer, Georg Roman. Combining a blend of classical, operatic and rock styles on his new single ‘Forever’, the talented musician is one to look out for in the future.
Whilst this style may be difficult to imagine, Georg has compared himself to Josh Groban, and as soon as you listen to ‘Forever’, you will see why. Dramatic string sections set the scene before Georg truly unleahes his explosive baritone on the song. His voice resonates triumphantly over the classical instrumentation, providing his audience with quite the listening experience.
It might seem like Georg has been doing this all his life, but he originally followed the path of becoming an athlete, wanting to be a professional fighter or weightlifter. Evidently, Georg chose the right path- exhibiting his undeniable vocal talents to the world.

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’.
‘Sympathy For the Devil’ is the latest release from the debut EP of LA based production team, AT-ATs On The Beach (ATATOTB). With a world full of stereotyped electronic music, the group are trying to avoid this, taking their own distinct approaches to composing which they build on from their experience as film editors and producers.
The new EP features some original mixes from ATATOTB, as well as some remixes of huge artists like Elton John and The Eagles. In addition, ‘Sympathy For The Devil’ takes the Rolling Stones classic and morphs it into a cover like you’ve never heard before, in an entirely different genre- Guns’N’Roses eat your heart out.
The group are known for their previous work on films like Black Swan, The Thing and Wrath of the Titans, when they went under the name of InFiction. With edgy theatrical remixes and melodies crafted specifically for downtempo-chill communities, ATATOTB have tapped into a niche of electronic music which they have seemingly become the pioneers of.
With new styles of electronic music developing all the time, the group set themselves apart from the crowd with rhythmic beats, pulsating bass lines and experimental instrumentation.
