WYLD: I was days away from quitting music

He produced one of the biggest tracks of the year but behind the scenes, WYLD was struggling to stay afloat and almost quit music altogether. It was only when a miraculous moment changed everything for him. September 2017 was a make or break moment for the artist. And it was looking more like the latter…

#WeIntroduce: Anu Omideyi drops debut solo EP

Review: CalledOut Music @ Gracepoint, London

As a concept, CalledOut Music’s headline show in London shouldn’t have worked. He’s still relatively new as an artist and he doesn’t have an album out yet. Plus the venue was far too big for someone who only just started releasing music a couple of years ago. So why was the event sold out? And…

#WeIntroduce: The Pilgrims put strong songs first

The Pilgrims don’t want you think of them as your average group. That’s because they didn’t get together that way. Whereas other bands come together with the intention of releasing music from the beginning, the Pilgrims first assembled with the intention of just writing songs. The problem is that when you start writing songs and…

Hey Drake! Hands off our playlists!

  So the other day we woke up and Drake was reading the breakfast news. Then we poured our morning cereal to find Drake on the milk carton AND the cereal box. Then no sooner had we stepped out the house did we see Drake delivering the mail. We stepped on the bus and guess…

Review: Andy Mineo @ O2 Academy, Islington

They say you only get one opportunity to make a good first impression. Boy did Andy Mineo make his count. He exploded onto the stage with Desperados and didn’t let up. It felt like the set list was compiled by Andy’s DJ, not Andy himself. It was almost like a DJ set the way he…
