He fed my love of house music with this new track. It’s pounding beat paired with Tiffani’s seductive vocals are perfect for the dancefloor.

This female has incredible bite with fierce yet delicate debut single ‘Dum Dee Diddy Dum’. Big thanks to Charli XCX for pointing me in the direction of this one as CuckooLander’s her touring drummer. She’s bloody cool already and her track sure puts her in the ranking for 2014.

Huge thankyou to a friend for pointing me in the direction of these psychedelic rockers. ‘Lady In White’ has some brilliant 80s infused guitar riffs and with these five American punk rockers pulling together influences from some the legends including Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Nirvana, they make an incredible racket!

February Playlist

So we’re already a week into February! Crazy how the time seems to fly! Thought it was about time I did a playlist for this month though!

Things have got more mish mashed with a tonne of different genre’s flowing through my ears lately! I seem to have re-visited a lot of older tracks this week. I think that had something to do with Paramore releasing their video for ‘Ain’t It Fun’.

Paramore – Ain’t It Fun

This has always been my favorite song from their latest self-titled album. I love the added soul choir in the chorus and it’s just an all round uplifting kinda beat that makes me just want to sing along to this.

Iggy Azalea – Fancy (feat Charli XCX)

My obsession with Iggy Azalea is hard to explain as I hate artists like Nicki Minaj. But there’s something about Iggy, she’s far more raw and spits pure venom in all her tracks. ‘Fancy’ brings back her original sound, verging away from the more commercial stuff she’s been doing lately. The fact she got Charli XCX on this as well makes me love both these lovely ladies even more.

Anna Lunoe – Breathe

Only stumbled across Anna the other day and wished I heard her sooner. Love the dance-house vibes in her track with its thudding beat. Makes a great track to dance too.

Ella Eyre – Deeper

Gorgeous voice, great lyrics and a great soul house-esque track, much to the same as her fellow pals Rudimental.

Black Stone Cherry – Like I Roll

Been listening to old Black Stone Cherry all week. Been really in the mood for old school American rock sounds which I’ve always been a sucker for. This is a great track that puts you in a Cadillac on Route 66.

The Pretty Recklass – Going To Hell, My Medicine

Still can’t stop listening to their latest single ‘Going To Hell’, the heavy driving guitar riffs are to die for. Cannot wait for the album! ‘My Medicine’ is one of my old favorites so thought it deserved a place in here.

Syron – Colour Me In, Three Dreams (feat Horror Stories)

This girl is definitely my new obsession for 2014. Great voice and she’s all about the house which I am in love with at the moment. Plus she gorgeously edgy. Keep an eye on this one. 

Peace out!
