Ahead of the release of his highly anticipated debut album ‘In The Lonely Hour’, Sam Smith will release his second solo single ‘Stay With Me’, a heart-breaking pop ballad, on 18th May.
‘Stay With Me’ is an epic ballad of unrequited love, tugging at heartstrings as Sam’s stunning vocals float effortlessly over delicate keys, percussion and strings. The single is the perfect pre-cursor to the release of his album ‘In The Lonely Hour’ which features a roll call of impressive collaborations from Fraser T Smith, Two Inch Punch, Eg White, Disclosure, Zane Lowe, Tourist to long term writing partner Jimmy Napes.
Live Sam continues to play to sell-out crowds, with a recent tour in the UK, further dates in Europe and North America and performances for this summer announced at Besitval, T in the Park, V, a show at Somerset House, that sold out in a matter of hours, and another sold out show at London’s Roundhouse.
Remixes for ‘Stay With Me’ come from Shy FX, Darkchild and Wilfred Giroux.
Capitol Records release ‘Stay With Me’ on 18th May.

This is the slick debut single from Roses Gabor on Toddla T’s label, Girls Music. Roses has already had releases on Digital Soundboy and Young Turks through her collaborations with some of the most respected producers going… Buraka Som Sistema, Shy FX, SBTRKT, Gorillaz and Redlight. ‘Stars’ is a song for clubs and night bus journeys alike- both contemplative and energetic. The atmospheric and emotive intro gives way to a rumbling bassline and off kilter drum programming. Roses voice is a perfect fit for the warm synths and moody beats which she shakes up with her feisty chopped up vocals.
B-side ‘Night Sky’ shows off a more downtempo and RnB sound that brings to mind Cassie or Aaliyah on a London flex. Its’s a sultry statement of intent: ‘we don’t play around, doing what we got to’. From jungle inspired tracks with Shy FX to a brilliant collaboration with renowned masked producer SBTRKT- (their track ‘Pharaohs’ was a standout track on his debut album) Gabor’s textured soulful voice dances across genres and is making the music world stand up and take note. Inspired by hip hop legends and Bjork alike, her vocal expression and personality go hand in hand to make Roses a beautful and talented singer to watch- both ‘Stars’ and ‘Night Sky’ justify her growing reputation as a star in her own right.
This is the new single from Yasmin featuring Shy FX and Ms Dynamite ‘Light Up (The World)’.
‘Light Up (The World)’ is coming on 15.01.12 on Levels Entertainment/Ministry of Sound Recordings.
Tricky is to release Time To Dance (RUG417D), from his most recent album Mixed Race, as a digital single on Monday the 18th of July 2011. The single will feature remixes from Maya Jane Coles, Doorly and FiFi Rong.
Mixed Race was released last September to great critical acclaim. Tricky has since completed tours of the UK, Australia, Europe and South America with many sold out shows. Tricky will be headlining Blissfields Festival in Winchester on July 2nd before heading into the studio with some interesting electronic artists – full details to follow!
The Time To Dance remixes have already been picking up support from a broad spectrum of dance music’s elite including Ramon Tapia, Plump DJs, John Selway, Groove Armada, Sister Bliss, Kruse & Nuernberg, Mighty Mouse, Hector Romero and Nick Warren. Here is further information on the remixers themselves:
With covers of Mixmag and DJ Mag Weekly already under her belt, and a Radio 1 Essential Mix landing in July, 23-yr old Maya Jane Coles is the rising producer/DJ on everyone’s lips. Support for her productions are as wide ranging as Skream to Scuba on the dubstep side through to Jamie Jones and Laurent Garnier on the house front. As a remixer in her own right Maya has remixed artists from MSTRKRFT through to Todd Terry and as one half of dub-electronica duo She is Danger, her credits include Massive Attack, Delphic and Gorillaz.
The second mix on the package comes from blogger’s favourite, Doorly. The Ibiza Rocks resident has been making just as many waves from Sydney to London as he has in the Balearics – most recently on a 30-date arena tour of North America supporting Rusko. Famed for his ‘Pigeon Hole This’ label and attitude; Doorly’s remix credits list to many to mention but include Prodigy, Groove Armada, Dizzee Rascal, Basement Jaxx and Sia with the likes of Fake Blood, Tiga, Shy FX and Soulwax supporting them at club.
And finally, the third remix comes from FiFi Rong. Signed to Tricky’s Brown Punk label, FiFi Rong is one of London’s freshest talents producing from Dubstep through to UK Funky.
