Supernaturally’ nods to classic UK garage and house, but that’s just the starting point; gifted with vocals from Yasmin, the track shows Preditah’s continued exploration beyond the grime sound that’s brought him to the forefront of the UK scene. Wrapped in the on point production that’s a staple of every Preditah release, expect to hear ‘Supernaturally’ all summer long, from warehouse raves to festivals, national radio and beyond.


Born in Birmingham, Preditah’s series of instrumental EPs, Solitaire EP, Eightsome EP, Circles EP, Red Bull EP, Gears of Grime, and El Futuro EP, ensured a growing presence on pirate radio and on the dancefloor. 

His breakthrough track, ‘The Big Wok’, was noticed by JME (Boy Better Know), and this association helped cement his reputation, soon after he became the tour DJ for Skepta. 


Taking into account his skills as a composer and guitarist (bass guitar), and his remixes for the likes of Skepta, Tempa, Jessie Ware, Disclosure, Blonde and Tchami, you have all the hallmarks of a prodigious talent.


Forthcoming Preditah shows include Sankeys Ibiza, Garage Nation, Tinie Tempah’s series of Pool Parties at Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza, Lovebox, Boomtown, Shakedown, Together at Amnesia, Creamfields, and many more.




Human Bondage' is the first single and music video from Straight Line Stitch's new EP 'Transparency'.
With the band preparing to release their new EP, SLS has been through some hard times but they have overcome and the result is a great solid ep with something for any type of metal fan to enjoy. Songs like Out Of The Shadows, Dark Matter and "Human Bondage" particular standouts.
"Human Bondage is about being weighed down by guilt, wanting forgiveness, & learning to ultimately let go"explains SLS frontwoman Alexis Brown I want to encourage and inspire people, to let them know to never lose hope. If we got through it, so can you
The new EP 'Transparency' is released 30th June via Pavement Entertainment.

LEGENDARY Kelly Moneymaker!!
With her new single 'Skippin' Stones', Kelly is taking the UK by storm. Armed with her insane vocals and a catchy, feel good track, Kelly is set to make the leap from session musician (with huge names, Dianna Ross, Meatloaf, Ringo Starr and more), to solo artist.

The Winachi Tribe have given us a taste of what to expect from their video for new single 'Time For Love'.  https://youtu.be/OiY6w92JO9I

The band are in a celebratory mood following international airplay, rave reviews and the news that the b-side of 'Time For Love' a track called 'Plant the Seed' will be featured in an upcoming feature length documentry chronicling Manchester's world famous nightclub The Hacienda.

Tankus the Henge are six sharp dressed and bedraggled gentlemen hailing from some of the more eccentric parts of London Town. Their music draws from a multitudinous array of influences including rock, ragtime, reggae, blues, funk, disco, gypsy punk and Django. 


The bands new single Weather has a big beat, carnival air it will get you out of your seat and dancing the tango

Here’s the video, in case you want to have a little look:

CHALK who are based in London, England.

Having played as separate singer songwriters on the London acoustic scene for some time, Josh Fowley and Jonny Breakwell decided to join forces in September 2014 and write music influenced by some of their favourite electronic artists.
In the short time the duo have been together, they have already been featured in a number of publications, and performed at a selection of top London venues including The Enterprise next to Chalk Farm Tube Station where they played their first gig together and where their name originates from.
Quoted as bringing a decisively fresh approach to the DJ and Elentronica scene, you can find more information on CHALK by visiting www.chalkband.co.uk or you can follow them on Facebook at www.facebook.com/chalkmusicuk 

An alternative indie rock band formed in the Northeast, Abel Raise the Cain were brought together by a mutual love of atmospheric and epic indie soundscapes influenced by the likes of Arcade Fire, Sigur Ros and Editors. 

The release of double A side single Too Late/The Promise' brought the band widespread critical acclaim leading to both singles receiving repeated airplay on radio stations across the UK, including regular plays on BBC Introducing. 'Too Late' was also playlisted on Brazilian National Radio & featured by Channel 4 on a primetime television program.

Regulars on the live circuit, Abel Raise the Cain have played shows across the UK, where they've earned a reputation for enthralling and energetic live performances, which have led to coveted support slots for Happy Mondays, Primal Scream, Dexys Midnight Runners, Spiritulized, Kodaline and Skaters.

The music video for new single Black Swans', taken from the forthcoming debut EP For Strangers Only, went straight to number one in the Beat 100 music chart which features bands from all over the world. The song also led to Abel Raise the Cain to win the Beat 100 Ultimate Musician award, recognising them as one of the most outstanding bands on the network.

Black Swans is a sign of things to come; an epic, sweeping message, the symphony of a Broken Heart.

"When the bubble or romantic suspense pops, a chorus, a wall of sound, a full culmination of six instruments really grabs the ears; A chanted motif, "I'm just too late", has rung around in my head since coming across Abel Raise The Cain. This is a 'big room' song."
Narc Magazine

"Abel Raise The Cain closed out 2012 with the release of their fantastic Double A-Side single, entitled Too Late /The Promise. The two tracks are great, with Too Late having the previously mentioned orchestral sound that builds up to a satisfying crescendo with Crichton delivering a repeated poignant line Im just too late that really sticks in the head. The Promise is equally majestic, but with a more varied structure of an acoustic opening, before building up to a huge cymbal-crashing middle-section and neatly wrapping up with a beautiful guitar line to draw the song to a close."
Hooting and Howling Magazine

'The Promise', their latest single, is a positive example of what is yet to come. A strong arrangement of components from a solid foundation to husky vocals. A distinct range of elements creates the perfect atmospheric soundscape. With riffs that blend well when harmonized with repetitive vocals, effective musical layers are produced adding to the depth of this song. Despite being a new act were sure these guys will take 2013 by storm. Such a promising act with evident talent, you would be a fool not to keep an eye out for Abel Raise The Cain this year." 
Venture Mag Northeast

"'The Promise' is an ambitiously produced ethereal indie rock tune filled with tastefully layered guitar riffs and haunting harmonies. Sean Crichton's husky vocals are filled with intense depth and emotion that instantly sweep you off of your feet."
Cargo Collective

"An ambitious, bold sound for fans of Arcade Fire and Coldplay!" 

"Abel Raise The Cain pack quite a punch a visceral live band, their post-rock is expansive and epic."

"Even closer to home are Abel Raise The Cain and they seize their moment in the sun. A powerful atmospheric performance reveals clear and present signs of life on the Teesside music scene."
God is in the TV Zine

Calum Foad -

MeMeMe' off the back of some really encouraging BBC play and would be keen to try and get you on board for this release too! The track is a light hearted, fun-poking, summer jam about social media and the trivialities of it! 

The music video for 'MeMeMe' is premiering on Wednesday 24th June, with a 2 track EP being released on July 13th.

The Talks are embarking on an extensive UK tour punctuated by European festival appearances, full details here: http://www.thetalks.co.uk/shows/4551324681

In just a short space of time The Talks have built themselves a compelling live reputation across the UK and Europe for delivering sweaty, high octane, dance floor filling shows, treading the boards with the likes of Madness, The Specials, Rancid, The Beat and many more.

2013 saw the band release their eagerly anticipated Westsinister E.P. along with singles Can Stand The Rain - featuring the legendary Neville Staple from The Specials and the YouTube smash Friday Night. The E.P. and respective singles achieved much success with Ska Punk and commercial listeners across the UK and Europe and also achieved the playlists of certain American, Australian and Japanese Ska orientated radio stations. With main stage performances at globally renowned festivals such as This Is Ska (DE), Mighty Sounds (CZ) and Rebellion, tweets of appraisal and support from new wave big hitters Less Than Jake, glowing reviews and cover features from Big Cheese and Vive Le Rock Magazines - not to mention appearing in programmes on various UK TV networks - the bands reputation has surged from strength to strength.

In April 2014 the band released Dont Look Behind You, their first single from upcoming album Commoners, Peers, Drunks and Thieves, which boosted the bands popularity seeing them dramatically increase their touring schedule and break through further into commercial and alternative media across Europe. Proceeding with a successful second single "Radio" in their back pocket, The Talks shortly followed with new album Commoners, Peers, Drunks and Thieves' and set out on an extensive European tour. Totalling up 40 gigs spanning two months across 9 different countries, and about 10,000 miles of tarmac, the band were able to explore a lot of new, wide reaching territories and deliver the mayhem to brand new audiences in places such as Italy, Austria, Poland and Croatia. 

'Commoners, Peers, Drunks and Thieves' was released on 24th November 2014, sale figures continue to rise and the tracks are continuing to attract air-play globally.

They embody the 2 tone sound of the Specials and the punkiness of Rancid. I know its early, but this EP is one of my favorites!
Read Junk

Its packed with lively upbeat tracks that prove Ska is not only alive and well but also, fresh and relevant.

(modern sub) 60s keys, slicing guitar, rolling bass line and snapping tight drumming, a cool and clear vocal
Studs and Punks

When it comes to ska, there's no more seminal figure than The Specials singer Neville Staple. He guests on his friend Pat's band The Talks ' new single which melds trad ska with reggae and punk influences, with a socio-political lyrical approach. Can Stand the rain is a belter from hull's finest.
Big Cheese Magazine

The Talks rock a blend of old school Jamaica ska infused with Two-Tone sensibilities and a refreshing lack of 3rd wave spaz.

A few of these rude boys, really look like boys but with the song's stuttering chorus, walking bass and propulsive horn line, easily erase any doubts about their maturity. Music Ruined my Life
