EP Review: Escape – Bella Loka

Bella loka Escape

Originally from Bristol, husband and wife act BELLA LOKA moved to London’s Camden Town to work on their latest project, Escape set for release on 2nd September.

Recorded at Abbey Road Studios, the five-track production features singer/songwriter Tea Boothby’s angelically-light vocals which lures you  into a colourful fusion of 80-esque indie pop and refreshingly-sweet electronic (slightly rock) melodies (well executed by David Boothby).

With the support of loyal fans, funds were raised for Escape through a £10000 Kickstarter campaign…after sampling the EP, It’s very safe to say that this couple did their fans proud.

Mixtape Review: The Greatest Show On Thirst – Cypher Clique

Cypher Clique The Greatest Show on Thirst

 

Delaware hip-hop group CYPHER CLIQUE dropped their mixtape, The Greatest Show on Thirst earlier this month.

The ingenious balance of a super smooth bass and that lick of sweet melody just cruises throughout the 17-track album. The trio said their latest mixtape is ‘suited to a summer playlist’ – I disagree. The project is also well suited for kicking back on those autumn and winter nights. To check out The Greatest Show on Thirst, head right here.

The #Mustlistens: Friends with Benefits, Good Money, Mastermind, Champagne Dreams.

Song of the Day: Music With You – The Tech Warriors

If you live in the UK, you may already know THE TECH WARRIORS. The group consists of presenters Jason Bradbury, Amy Williams and Ortis Deley (aka The O-Dog) from Channel 5’s hit technology programme The Gadget Show.

They have teamed up with electronic duo UTAH SAINTS  to create a one-off BANGING track using consumer music gadgets, to see if they can enter the Top 40 Chart! To achieve this the track needs 8000 downloads.

It’s all for a good cause as all profits from the sales will go towards  Nordoff Robbins. The music therapy charity is dedicated to transforming the lives of vulnerable children and adults around the UK through music.

So are you ready to support this great cause? Music With You  is now available on iTunes and Amazon for just 59p.
