Marcus James is the evidently talented producer who’s been behind the production desk manufacturing Shide Boss’ most recent tracks including It’s Alright, Rainbow and Ni Sohniye. Set to release later this month, James presents a fresh new and exciting sound which collaborates the efforts of fluttering British Panjabi/Hindi vocalist Biti along with another glistening female songstress, Reesha. Giving plenty of time to develop, the teasing bass drop and hypnotising synth’s really build into quite an exquisite number which urges you to instantly hit the replay button.
Were excited with what the Karman Entertainment label are releasing and with the impressive Fire-Tiger EP that dropped earlier this year, I confidently can say that it’s a bold start from this fresh experimental collective.
Amit Mattu, otherwise known as Fire-Tiger is perhaps a name most won’t have come across till now and after hearing this gentleman’s production handiwork on his newly released EP, Fire-Tiger Presents, we’re confident the new British producer on the block will receive a fair bump in his follower count!
Signed to Karman Entertainment, Fire-Tiger has released a 6-tracker brimming with cutting-edge, contemporary Asian-fused sounds and manages to deliver different flavours throughout the length of the EP. What’s more, Fire-Tiger has championed female artists; an area of the music scene which is need of progression here in the UK and one that this EP attempts to address with the spine-tingling opening track Veh Vanjaria. The trio of Sabrina, Biti and Amrita of Enalay pool their complementing vocal talents on a heartfelt, piano-filled number with a subtle hint of autotune on the hook.
One track that is a gripping journey from start to finish is the Drum and Bass beast G6. Satwinder Birdi, the flourishing voice behind tracks like DJ Sanj’s Mitran Di Jaan and Atre heads this one and is in imperious form on this white-knuckle, adrenaline ride! The rags-to-riches lyrics are quirky, synths imposing and a bassline nothing short of bludgeoning. Birdi further lyrically revamps the evergreen classic Jind Mahi with Fire-Tiger favouring a largely Hip-Hop feel with a smattering of Desi, Dub and DnB to send our senses into overdrive!
With a wealth of variety to pick from, Fire-Tiger has essentially released an accomplished product and his experimental, mainstream production style is bound to resonate with a diverse listenership. From Electronic to Soul, this debut has revealed him to be adept across an array of genres and has the vision to fluently incorporate cultural identity with resounding ease.

A slow jam that brings together two of the biggest RnB diva’s of the past decade? Yes please! Taken off MJ. Blige’s My Life II: The Journey Continues, which is due November 21, a small part of me thinks that Sean Garrett should have produced this for a solo Beyoncé performance but without trying to sound all averse, a jam of this quality is something that deserves nothing but praise.
Set to release on her forthcoming album on November 21st, Rihanna requests non other than Jay-Z to feature on her newest offering Talk That Talk which also happens to be the title of her album. Whilst the track doesn’t sound that groundbreaking, I’m sure the intentions of Rihanna’s management team is to ensure Rihanna stays in the forefront and on top of the charts. Another number one in the offing for her?
One of my favourite tracks off the outstanding Mirrorwriting album, Shoulda gets the Kaoss Pad treatment using nothing but the excellent vocals sounds of Jamie Woon. This guy never ceases to amaze me.
Wow, wow, and simply wow. Been a long time since I heard either of these two artists with new music but it has officially blown me away with them both appearing on the same track (extra special as its my birthday today!). Hope you enjoy!
Wouldn’t say I would have chosen this song for her next video but Rihanna rolling all around on a bed, cannot say I disapprove.
This is official stuff right here. They’re not many artists more creative, original and talented than Mr R Les. This album is one to look out for.
You ask me why I’m rappin’
Well I’ll give you the reason
The same reason you hatin’ when you should be believin’
It’s in your heart to hate
It’s in my heart to win
So yeah, I’m rappin’ now
Let the hatin’ begin
I write my own records -write my own checks
Wonderin’ which hotel in which city I’m callin’ home next
One thing I know for sure
One thing that’s mandatory
I owe it all to God
I give him all the glory
Jessie J performs Stand Up in the 1Xtra Live Lounge for Trevor Nelson.
If you let a frown become your normality
You don’t set an example for the youth of our humanity
If you spend every day wishing for the next to come
Aged and lifeless is what you‘ll become.
So Stand Up for the Love
Ryan Leslie is one of my biggest inspirations, some of the work that has come out of his studios have been nothing but epic music. Not conforming to the hype that surrounds the popular charts, I feel Mr Leslie has and always will bring out music that is true to his vision of great music. Check out this exclusive from a concert in San Francisco where he unveiled a track that features Birmingham, UK born singer Mr Hudson.
