Example’s kicked off 2011 with an almighty bang, already he’s sold-out his 15-date UK tour and had one of the biggest viral track hits of the year with the killer Skream collaboration ‘Shot Yourself in the Foot Again’ which received over 2 million YouTube views, climbed to #1 on HypeMachine and became a viral hit across the world.
There is no rest for man of the moment Example, he’s back and means business. Armed and ready to take over our airwaves once again his massive comeback single “Changed The Way You Kiss Me” gives us a taste of things to come from his third studio album, “Playing in the Shadows”, released later this year. Produced by dance pioneer Michael Woods, “Changed The Way You Kissed Me” sees Example back on form at his very best. Utilising a dirty bass backdrop infused with big synth-heavy hooks, Example is able to lay over his classic lyrical prowess of tales of girl trouble and unrequited love.
“Changed The Way You Kiss Me” has already received massive support from Radio 1’s Zane Lowe, Annie Mac & Nick Grimshaw, as well as reaching #1 on HypeMachine within a matter of hours of it being leaked online, this huge summer anthem is sure to see Example tearing up dance floors and tents across the festival circuit in 2011!
As well as making tunes for his own eagerly anticipated album, Example has also featured on the Wretch 32 radio smash ‘Unorthodox’ and Giggs’s ‘Look Over Your Shoulder’. Alongside this and his new material, Example will be nurturing the leviathan that is Example Live with a constant stream of live dates across the UK and Europe leading all the way up to festival season including appearances at Wireless, Lovebox, Big Chill, V2011, Creamfields and he will be returning to the Balearics to headline this year’s Ibiza and Majorca Rocks.
Changed The Way You Kiss Me will be out in June 2011 and with fan uploaded samples already in their thousands on YouTube hits, it is clear that the love for Example’s genre bending club bangers is stronger than ever!
Ministry of Sound release ‘Changed The Way You Kiss Me’ on 5th June featuring remixes from Steve Smart, Kris Menace, Mensah & Tom Starr
True Tiger Featuring Professor Green & Maverick Sabre
'In The Air’
New single released 12 June 2011 on Relentless/Virgin Records
True Tiger are set to release their new single, ‘In The Air' featuring Professor Green and Maverick Sabre on 12th June 2011 .
Forget what you think you know about current club music, because True Tiger are ready to turn it on its head and send it spinning across the floor. If there is a group of musicians who better represent the potential of 21st century British music to expand in all directions better than Stanza, Sukh Knight, Blue Bear and Gowers, we'd like to see them; entrepreneurial, independent of spirit and culturally open, this collective of four distinct and distinctive personalities are not beholden to the past in any sense, nor to any current scene. They are of the generation that watched the dubstep and grime scenes forge their own sounds and identities from their own localities, and are inspired by that to do precisely the same: to take from their lives and whatever is around them and create something completely of the now, and completely for the people.
True Tiger draw on experiences that take in the pirate radio stations of UK garage, the dark dancefloor of FWD>> and the raging moshpits of Essex heavy metal gigs, immersion in East End bhangra beats, Hendrix and the Aphex Twin, and somehow find the linking points, and find a coherent identity of their own. Yet they are never, ever about “fusion”, nor about some indiscriminate mish-mash of influences in an attempt to be all things to all people. Rather, they are simply four young men of discriminating tastes and a passion for particular sounds who have learned through trial and error what will move a crowd in any given situation. And whether tearing up arena gigs in support of Enter Shikari or being blasted from the biggest bassbins with their beats for P Money and Professor Green, they have already proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that they can do exactly that.
Their previous singles 'Slang Like This' with P Money, and Tiger-produced 'Jungle' by Professor Green (voted Best Dancefloor Filler NME Awards) show that they are just as in touch with their pirate radio and rave history as they are with crossover audiences. They show that those musical first cousins grime and dubstep are still not so very far apart and stand as a proud representation of the brilliant cultural collisions that make modern Britain so exciting and creative as we move into the second decade of the millenium.
The guys have teamed up with Professor Green and Maverick Sabre once again for the immense True Tiger track ‘In The Air' which adds a whole new level of dancefloor heft to the urban pop template which has been taking over the charts in the last couple of years. The guys are working on their debut album, and with young stars from the underground...Tinchy Stryder to Katy B, Dizzie Rascal to Magnetic Man... breaking through into the mainstream on a regular basis, True Tiger are ready to take their comprehensive schooling in that underground and make some of the most important pop cultural statements of the new decade.
Released: 19th June 2011 on 360 Records Ltd.
Following on from the chart success of Pow 2011, Lethal Bizzle is set to release ‘Mind Spinning’ the debut track from his forthcoming album. It’s lyrically a different side of Lethal, but over a real typical Bizzle bassline heavy in-your-face track. The man himself explains;
“The track is about a girl who was into me, but I wasn’t really interested. But then the tables turned and I got into her, but she had moved on, so I was too late. The video is following on from the Pow 2011 video storyline, we’re trying to make a mini movie so all the videos will link together.”
The track is produced by R1 Productions who are production team made up of Richie Montana, Sneaky and Flipz. Richie Montana discovered Tinie Tempah and also recorded his double platinum album ‘Discovery’.
Bizzle released POW 2011 in January 2011, featuring a stellar cast of the current ‘top grime dogs’, appearing on the track in order; Lethal Bizzle, JME, Wiley, Chipmunk, Face, P Money, Ghetts and Kano. It reached a Top 40 chart position despite no radio daytime playlists, and has to date had over 2 million Youtube video views. A great achievement for a grime record, on an independent release, and a fitting follow up to the original banned POW which was a #10 chart smash released in December 2004,
The Best of Bizzle album is out now, and is celebrating Bizzle’s ten years in music. It features some of his biggest hits over the past years including co-labs with Dizzee Rascal, Mr. Hudson, Donaeo, Luciana, US rapper Twister.
Mind Spinning is released 19th June 2011 on 360 Records Ltd.
