The Eclectic Eight
1) VV Brown
I came across this singer/songwriter instantly loved her voice and her catchy pop-ish songs. Listen to two of her songs off her latest album, Traveling Like the Light, called, Game Over and Everybody.
HW is a Philly based musician who initially started out in Hip/Hop and slowed transitioned himself into the world of dub-step. Read more about his evolution as an artist here and check out the video below for one of his latest tracks called, Water, with Mt Eden Dubstep :
I came across this group thanks to a friend of mine and it definitely is a fitting band to listen to with all this weather change. I really liked their song, Give a Little Love, and after checking out their site, I found this short film they made called The First Days of Spring:
I heard of this artist after she came across Shade and sent me some of her music. She really has some great music and a really great story too! A few years back she moved to LA from Russia and worked hard on creating a name and fan base for herself. Check out her newest single, G.F.Y. and more of her music can be found here.
Another group who reached out and I found their story, hunger, and love for hip/hop really interesting. Check out more of their music here. Here is one track off their recently released EP, “Low Light Turbulence”:
I came across him via The Fader . I heard one specific track called Dirty Diamonds feat. Sleepyhead and ended up listening to it on repeat several times. It’s that additively good. This Bay Area music has elements of electronica, dubstep and a little hip/hop even…simply put, it’s just a sexy track. Check out his last EP called RobotSexTape:
He is a Scottish dj/producer who does mainly grime, dub-step and techno music. Few of his tracks are on the psychedilic side too. Check out the track called, Sniff and Destroy below:
This soulful UK singer has the delicate looks of a 40’s glamor girl but the vocals and draw of a seasoned soul singer. She is currently finishing up a lengthy tour in support of her first album, meanwhile working on her second album slated to be released the first quarter of 2011. Check out her song called New York feat Ghostface Killah:
