Lucy Spraggan releases album number six today and it’s an album that comes from the soul. Most artists will have, at some point in their career, the record that changes everything for them. It might not be the album with the most success, or the album with the most hits but it will be that album where everything seems to come together, where the lessons learned from everything that comes previously enables something forged in real honesty, in real emotion. For me, this will be that album for Lucy; the record that becomes the touchstone for everything that will inevitably follow, the bar against which everything else will be compared.
18 year old Liv V is brimming with confidence and positive energy in her new single, ‘Magnetic’. The song, which saw her team up with DJ Wiz, IKA, and Jenne Derck, is a song that will resonate with everyone as she asks that we all come together, and not allow anyone to divide us – whether it be the governments, media, or other influences.

His new single, ‘Heads Up Stand Tall -Remix’ is an inspiring and upbeat track, which brings Challan’s inspiring and uplifting message to the wider community, and comes with a music video filmed in Nottingham.
Nottingham’s Tom Walton comes from a musical family, and grew up listening to his father’s 90s house and trance music on car journeys, as well as the grade 8 jazz piano standards his brother played. It was a short step for him to make his own music, and ‘Sonic Limbo’ is the latest album from the electronic music artist. The release, which came out on February 12, has already seen coverage by BBC Introducing.
