All Hail Noir is featured on Afropunk with their latest release of “Tokyo”, remixed by Charlie Heat. Head over now to listen to the track.
C.P DUBB works with RamRiddlz again on this new release, “Dem Callin” featuring Playboi Carti.
It’s been quite a year of transition for Ramriddlz, the Mississauga singer who first came to prominence with the spring one-off “Sweeterman.”Something like eight months since that drop, he’s embarked on a new wave, linking up with OVO and playing shows across the U.S. and Canada. Finally, he’s releasing his first piece of new music since this summer’s P2P EP. The track, produced by frequent collaborators Jaegen and C.P Dubb, features a verse from new friend Playboi Carti. Over a characteristically slow-burning beat that sounds like the post-Hennessy slump he sings of, Ram delivers some of his most memorable one-liners to-date: Babes just wanna Ramriddlz and chill; Eating good, call me Uncle Phil; Everything halal so no pepperoni. We’re crying.
“I’ve been out in L.A. for the past couple months working on my next project and did a few appearances and show. At one show, Playboi Carti was also there. We kicked it off and vibed with each other. Brought him over to a studio where I record at, Jaegen cooked up a beat and C.P Dubb threw his touch on it. With all the drugs and drinks being passed around, the idea of being fucked up and have bitches ringing up our phones too often became the song itself,” Ramriddlz told The FADER over email. “Ring ring for the dingaling,” he added.

Congratulations to Izzy Bizu on being nominated for a BRIT’s Critics’ Choice Award.
via The Telegraph
Twenty-one-year-old Izzy Bizu has been on track for this kind of nomination for the past couple of years. The South Londoner first pricked the attentive ears of Emeli Sandé and producer Naughty Boy during an open mic night in 2013.
Within months, her self-released EP Coolbeanz debuted at number three on the iTunes RnB chart and she had supported her Critics Choice predecessor, Sam Smith, on his tour. She’s already brought her infectious blend of soul, pop and RnB – think Solange meets Ella Fitzgerald and Florence Welch, whose records sound tracked her childhood – to Glastonbury twice. She is set to release an album next year.
Izzy Bizu has been named by VEVO as ‘One To Watch’ for 2016. Previous VEVO ‘Ones to Watch’ have included James Bay, Years and Years, George Ezra, Ella Eyre and Sam Smith.
Artists chosen for will be showcasing their talents at a series of exclusive performances for the website during November and December available to watch at www.vevo.com Here is the full list and video:
Coming off a series of singles earlier this year Kossisko releases his debut EP, entitled Red White N Cruel, worldwide on November 13th.
“With this project I wanted it to be a very honest introspective piece of work, so it explores both sides of the spectrum. Sometimes we are victims of cruelty and sometimes we deal it. I’ve been working on this project for over a year, experimenting and finding my sound and all that shit was a huge part of it. I spent a lot of time in isolation discovering and studying music and watching a lot films. I think everyone around me sort of knew i had to go through that process to find where i was going next and once i found the place i was looking for it just started pouring out of me.” -Kossisko

Kossisko gets a premiere from Noisey/Vice for his newest music video, “Across The Room” of his debut EP, Red White N Cruel. The EP will be released on November 13th through all digital outlets. Pre-order Red White N Cruel here: http://bit.ly/RedWhiteNCruel
A few years back Kossisko was known as 100s. They were signed to Fools Gold. They sounded like the colour purple. They were hella funky. Now though he’s broken free into territory that feels much more of his own; the sort of thing he wanted to make all along. His releases in 2015 as Kossisko – “Own Me” and “Jealousy” – represent an artist that, in our tracks of the month piece, we said was “bursting with ideas, yet has the aesthetic and know-how to tie everything together into a unique project”. Today we’re premiering the latest track from Kossisko called “Across the Room”. Here’s what he had to say about it.
“”Across The Room” is about letting go, living in the moment, not being afraid of giving yourself to another person, and not living in fear because of past experiences. When I wrote this it marked the beginning of me finding what my vision was for my next project, so I decided it should be the first song to kinda commemorate that.”

“South London’s Izzy Bizu has become our pop-soul dream girl overnight.” Wonderland Magazine
21 years old, Izzy Bizu is a pop force to be reckoned with. Not quite at Bieber levels of adolescent fame yet, she’s well on the way. Staccato sunshine vocals with falsetto trills, Izzy’s feelgood factor is off the charts on her new track, “White Tiger”. We’ve been promised an album in early 2016, but until then you can replay her cutely named Coolbeanz EP from 2013 that won her recognition from 1Xtra as well as BBC Radio 1.
After applying herself to the arts academically at boarding school and later theatre school Izzy flirted with the possibility of finding fame in Soundgirl, a group she started with friends but it was after she jumped onto an open mic she found herself as a solo performer. Believe it or not, at the ILuvLive musical showcase, that turned out to be run by her long lost cousin, it sounds like one of those he-said, she-said stories, but it’s so unbelievably lucky, it could only be true.
Since then she’s appeared on Jools Holland’s show, sold out two of her own headline shows and played with Mark Ronson at the Amy Winehouse Foundation Event. We’re already hooked on the sugar-sweet sound of “White Tiger” after a solid day of clicking the repeat button so we interrupted Izzy’s busy tour schedule supporting Foxes to talk about her new track and what’s on the way from Izzy Bizu.
