Siba AvanteArtist: Siba
Release: Avante
Label: Mais Um Discos
Genre: World – South America – Brazil

Mixing Northeastern Brazilian rhythms, rock ‘n’ roll and romantic Brazilian ‘brega’ music with African influences such as 70s Senegalese guitar music and Congotronics, Siba is a man who joins the dots between his life, his culture and the rest of the world. Marrying his well-crafted and hard-earned lyricality with both new and old influences, ‘Avante’ sees Siba’s languorous vocal and sinuous guitar playing intertwine beautifully with tuba, vibraphone and drums to create a dynamic album of experimental ‘alt-tropical’ folk-rock.

Release: Success
Label: Tru Thoughts
Genre: R&B – Hip Hop

In a welcome return for the inimitable London flow of Rodney P aka Riddimkilla, ‘Success’ sees the industry veteran dispatching the haters, with a brilliantly unshakable chorus brought to life by Harleighblu’s charismatic caramel tones; the track resembling a crash course from master to protégé in light of the steep upward trajectory of Harleighblu’s career.

Taking a darker soul-searching route since her wonderful EP ‘Katie Malco & The Slow Parade’, Katie Malco is back with the undoubted highlight of her career so far – her new EP ‘Tearing Ventricles’. Lilting heavy piano accompaniment with soaring vocals that effortlessly evoke a whole diorama of emotions, this is brave new territory for the girl who flippantly describes herself as “Pop music for people that don’t like JLS and so on”.
