Tinchy Stryder – Game Over | Official Music Video |

It’s being hailed as one of the UK’s biggest grime tunes to date. I’ve been pretty excited about this track for a while and now the video has now been unveiled for all to enjoy!!

GIGGS, DEVLIN, EXAMPLE, PROFESSOR GREEN, TINIE TEMPAH and CHIPMUNK all appear on the track. The fact that Tinchy has gathered ALL these UK artists is no mean feat and shows the strength of UK music at the moment. It’s huge!!

Game Over is taken from the Tinchy’s forthcoming album Third Strike.

Judging by the reaction so far, the track is destined for chart glory… The result is the UK urban scene at it’s finest really!!

Mr Ed Drewett unveils the video for his Debut single “Champagne Lemonade”..

Ed Drewett is set to one of this year’s biggest break-through stars without a doubt! October 31st will see the release of his very first single titled Champagne Lemonade. If you haven’t heard it yet then what are hell are you waiting for? Go listen and Enjoy! You can expect to see Drewett’s debut album released March next year. I particularly love how he has established himself as a contender for chart credentials without having even yet released his first single. That’s star quality right there. Very impressive from  the 22-year-old Essex singer-songwriter. As the introducing post described i first heard Ed Drewett’s smashing voice after he featured on Professor Green’s #3 hit ‘I Need You Tonight’! Not to mention he penned a number one hit in the form of “All Time Low” by this year’s breakout boy band “The Wanted”!

With the release date ‘CHAMPAGNE LEMONADE’ looming Ed has premiered the video for the track. If you’ve listened to the track then you’ll know Champagne Lemonade is a perfectly produced pop tune, mixing a pretty big catchy hook with lyrics that are smart and witty which emphasise his very cheeky persona. The bridge is an amazing part where the beat drops out then explodes back into the chorus, and that does it for me, I’ve got so much confidence in this track , I think I think it has the potential to break into the mainstream market and people are gonna warm to Ed well just because he’s a pretty likeable chap!

Oh yeah the video , it’s a decent effort from Ed, nothing too extravagant for his debut singlee, It sees the young lad smashing golf balls on a driving range in the company of a bevvy of curvy ladies!!

Ed’s first single has been produced by Tim Powell who has overseen his first production since leaving the hitmaker stable Xenomania. He’s worked with some big producers for the album which is exciting.  Greg Kurstin (Lily Allen), Cutfather (Kylie Minogue, Christian Aguilera), Guy Chambers (Robbie) and Fraser T. Smith (Cheryl Cole, JLS) have all contributed so far!


He will also be  joining Professor Green as main support on his October UK tour which culminates with a London date at Koko on October 19th.
The dates for the tour are below!

New Video : Professor Green’s Single Monster Gets its video unveiled!!

Here we have the official video to Professor Green‘s new single, ‘Monster‘. Featuring Example on the hook the video takes you well and truly into the world of a haunted house – Its a very different video to the norm. Filmed on location in Blackpool the video has a very spooky feel to it.

Them haunted houses are scary stuff.. Anyway the video is pretty much what you would expect from Pro’ Green. It’s lighthearted, funny and different.

Expect Professor Green to be a permanent fixture in the charts for the next few years!

Introducing Ed Drewett : Take a listen of his debut single!!

You may have heard Ed Drewett on a very popular track this year. Yes he featured on Professor Green’s first single “I Need You Tonight”. Ed has this year signed to Virgin/EMI records and has been busy with the production and recording of his debut album! His debut single has recently leaked on You Tube! 1) Its called Champagne Lemonade. 2) I Love it! 3) Its pure pop excellence! Exciting times for the 22 year old from Essex! The album i’ve heard is set for a release early 2011 and features some very very exciting songwriters! He’s bagged the likes of Wayne Hector , Fraser T Smith just to name a few, not a bad lineup of producers/writers!

ALSO Ed has been partly responsible for a  number one single this year! He co wrote “The Wanted””s debut single “All Time Low” which is particularly impressive!

All because he buys you champagne, i buy you lemonade, makes him something of a Casanova” is just one example of Ed’s unique lyrical style which is expected to be shown across his whole debut  album. A believer in classic songwriting and intelligent pop music, Ed’s style is influenced by some of the greats such as Elton John, Sting, Robbie Williams and Justin Timberlake and the album style is a fusion of all these influences with his own cheeky chappy cherry on top. With a voice that cuts through the air with the utmost conviction and honesty, its easy to relate and revel in every single word and melody sung by Mr. Drewett, Ed is a true artist and is sure to be around for a long time in the industry!

If you’re not familiar then just get familiar he’s a gem!
