Mike’s Monday Music Playlist 6/3/17
MIKE CURATES THE PICK OF THE MUSICAL CROP TO SOUNDTRACK YOUR MONDAY MORNING.
The resurgence of the UK Urban music scene was completed this week when Stormzy battled his way to number one in the album charts, holding off the challenge from Rag’n’bone Man. Now we look beyond Stormzy to see who is going to be next to pick up the baton from Mr Skeng aka Big Mike. Fortunately for us XL Recordings are one step ahead, hence their latest project “New Gen”, an album showcasing the new generation of urban talents. The track we’ve chosen from it this week for the playlist is Jevon’s “Man of the Hour”.
London based singer songwriter Loop continues her ascension in the collective consciousness with her Electro-pop release “Losing My Mind”. We’re looking forward to seeing what this ready-made Popstar can deliver in 2017, but for now this will have to Whet your appetite.
Rounding the playlist off nicely is “Be Ok” by the Deep Throat Choir. The name is a peach and I’m sure a bit tongue in cheek, but the output is bloody brilliant. As you would hope for with any choir project, there is a real sense of unity and fun with what DTC are doing and long may it continue.
