New Music Video: The Thunder – Goldteeth

With debut self-titled EP out now in full, GOLDTEETH now unveils the official video for ‘The Thunder’

In the visual, directed and shot by Oliver Brian Productions, Nicholson portrays this metaphorically in the form of a car passenger, by being ‘always at your side, through any situation’, good or bad.

‘The Thunder’ is the second single from his self-produced, genre bending E.P. While the bass still remains his main weapon of choice, the last decade has seen Andy Nicholson appear in a vast array of forms. Whether it be as a founding member and bassist of the hip hop and indie-rock hybrid Mongrel, or as a studio producer working with the likes of Toddla T, Swindle, Tom Prior and Terri Walker – Nicholson has continued to stay active and contributing to Sheffield’s iconic music history.

New Track: Doin Better – Goldteeth

Formally the bassist for Artic Monkeys, Andy Nicholson aka GOLDTEETH  unveils ‘Doin Better’,  the first single from his forthcoming self-titled EP, featuring the vocals of Hannah Yadi.

While the bass still remains his main weapon of choice, the last decade has seen the Sheffield producer/musician appear in a vast array of forms. Whether it be as a founding member and bassist of the hip hop and indie-rock hybrid Mongrel, or as a studio producer working with the likes of Toddla T, Swindle, Tom Prior and Terri Walker to name a few – Nicholson has continued to stay active and contribute to Sheffield’s iconic music history.

More recent times have found Nicholson finding and defining his own unique sound. Never afraid to pick up a pen as well as an instrument, GOLDTEETH has given him the time and space to literally transfer more of his ideas on to paper through co-writing with Hannah Yadi (Frank Gamble).

EP Review: Brown Eyed Soul Vol.1 – Cherri V

Since the release of single ‘Leave Me Be’ last year, I was eagerly waiting for CHERRI V to drop her EP, ‘Brown Eyed Soul Vol 1’…

…And finally it’s here! As featured in the aforementioned single, the eight-track set boasts the presence of reggae/dub heavy(ish) bass with lucid flow of modern R&B, before switching up to a 90s-inspired slow jam with a slight lick of gospel, through ‘Snapchat Mistress’.

The collection then filters to a faultless piano-led performance through, ‘Situationship’ where you experience and undoubtedly appreciate the true beauty and purity of this London songbird’s well-poised vocals.

Featuring guest vocalists, Sincerely Wilson – who duets with CHERRI V in ‘Situationship’ – and the legendary singer Terri Walker, ‘Brown Eyed Soul Vol 1’ is definitely worth the lengthy wait. Not the one to pass up; check it out below…

New Music Video: Unknown – Pluto Lèbon

​Introducing exciting new British talent, London singer and songwriter PLUTO LÈBON, with her brand new single ‘Unknown’, accompanied with a gripping and thought-provoking music video. Produced by Ezzrah (Skepta, JME, Terri Walker) and Ayobeatz (Wretch 32, Alexandra Burke, Chip, Wiley), ‘Unknown’ is taken from PLUTO LÈBON’s forthcoming debut EP ‘Atlantis’, set for release this summer.

Directed by Ash Riley and TGD (Da Beatfreakz, Loick Essien, Rough Copy), the black and white visuals for ‘Unknown’, and the vastly deserted location the video is filmed in, create quite the dark and pensive backdrop, which brings the record and its emotions to life. Additional themes of death, religion, famine, and migration, also run through the music video, causing the viewer to further reflect on Pluto’s message.

Speaking about the inspiration behind ‘Unknown’, Lèbon says, “I wrote this song from a place of real uncertainty, where I just wanted answers for things happening around me, but it can also mean different things for the listener. We’re all searching for our own truths and answers. Whatever the question is, I hope this song can spur listeners into actively seeking the answers we need”.

New Track: Purple – Joker Starr

Joker Starr

With some polished boom bap production from Micall Parknsun, this new single from JOKER STARR holds a wealth of lyrical content and a deep bellowing hook inspired by the legend Prince.

“I had the idea to make a chorus out of two ‘Purple Rain’ and ‘1999’ – I wanted to give a feel of one of his records but had no idea how I was going to manage it. The song is more inspired in his style rather than the content of the lyrics.”

With 15 years in the game, the rapper also known as Billy Bang Banga has built his name as a feared opponent in a string of Don’t Flop battles and collaborated with the likes of Estelle, Terri Walker, Jehst, Durrty Goodz, Mystro, Ty, Sway, Fliptrix, Verb T and more.

Purple is now available on iTunes.
