Following on from last years, 11 for 2011 – http://xtianmusic.wordpress.com/2011/01/03/happy-new-year-11-for-11/, here’s a few of the Artists & Tracks which I’m tipping for success this year. I’ve not including people who I’ve already posted about at length, like Skrillex and those that EVERYONE has posted about like Emeli Sande, Lana Del Rey etc. SO, IN ALPHABETICAL ORDER….

1 – AZARI & III – RECKLESS (WITH YOUR LOVE) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7VZ1sN9233Q&feature=related

Have to admit, the first few times I heard this, I wasn’t a fan of the vocal. However although it’s grown on me, I just think it would be amazing as an instrumental. They’re a four piece from Toronto and the single version has been remixed by Paul Epworth, it’s released next month.

2 – AZEALIA BANKS.

Already the winner of the 2012 NME Cool List – which doesn’t really hold any weight with me considering there’s probably more people work on the mag, than buy it nowadays! It will be interesting to see what Miss Banks serves up next after the Amazing “212” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i3Jv9fNPjgk (which sampled “Lazy Jay – Float My Boat”) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QfrVEt4EvFU) and the decent “Liquorice” http://soundcloud.com/azealia-banks/liquorice (which sampled “Lone – Pineapple Crush”) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D3HPKH3w9so)

Just booked tickets to see her at Heaven in London in Feb, and although I’m not the biggest fan of the band, I’m liking her contribution to the new Scissor Sisters single “Shady Love” (under the pseudonym Krystal Pepsy) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x0T5-PDeJ7c&feature=youtu.be

3 – CHIDDY BANG – RAY CHARLES. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=atEx6ZOX51s

From the forthcoming album ‘Breakfast’. Although they released another couple of singles and a mini album, they never really followed up the success of the MGMT sampling ‘Opposite Of Adults” from 2010 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=McRgkE_vgjU

I first heard this live at an EMI showcase at Abbey Road and thought the chorus was “RAJAR”, which considering the room was full of radio people, I presumed was a smart move!

4 – DJ FRESH FEATURING RITA ORA – HOT RIGHT NOW. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N7OPZOBJZyI

Finally a follow up to ‘Louder” which sold over half a million copies and was one of the Top 25 best selling singles of last year. It features vocals by Rita Ora, who’s signed to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation label.

5 – ESTELLE – THANK YOU. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r40wCY8IIFQ

Admit I’m not Estelle’s biggest fan, but the first time I heard this I thought it was amazing. Imagine if Portishead replaced Beth Gibbons with either Mary J or Sade…… I think it would sound something like this. If you listen carefully you can hear co-writer Akon in the background, although thankfully he resists adding his usual “Konvict” branding at the beginning!

6 – GOYTE featuring KIMBRA – SOMEBODY THAT I USED TO KNOW. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8UVNT4wvIGY

Seeing as it’s had over 39 million hits on youtube, I can’t exactly claim to be up front on this! However, I’ve only just heard it and although it’s been a big hit in Australia, it’s not out in the UK ’til next Month. Very Peter Gabriel, Hall & Oates-esque!

7 – KORN FEATURING SKRILLEX & KILL THE NOISE – NARCISSISTIC CANNIBAL. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CUOlc_j4rMA

Taken from the Korn album “The Path Of Totality” which is a collaboration with the likes of Skrillex, Feed Me, Kill The Noise & Noisia. This like previous single “Get Up”  http://xtianmusic.wordpress.com/2011/05/03/korn-vs-skrillex-get-up/ is a hook up with Skrillex http://xtianmusic.wordpress.com/2011/11/19/skrillex-koko-weds-161111/

8 – JOSH OSHO.

Marger ft Josh Osho – This Year. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sp1VKG5t1Tk

This is the first track I’ve heard by Marger, but I’m more looking forward to hearing more of Josh Osho’s solo stuff. Was a big fan of his debut single “Redemption Days” http://xtianmusic.wordpress.com/2011/06/07/josh-osho-featuring-ghostface-killah-redemption-days/

9 – REDLIGHT. 

New single – Get Out My Head. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4AqbLGHqsTg

Signed to Chase & Status’ MTA records, who had great success last year with the Nero album, this is the follow up to the Ms. Dynamite collab “What You Talking About” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N3piv9EFZU8

10 – RUDE KID – GET BUSY. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dPGPI3A3rNg

Sampling “Big Bass vs Michelle Narine – What You Do” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xTxeR-9UuAg from 2007, which in turn had sampled the original “Playing With Knives by Bizarre Inc” from 1997. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KQuHvJh_LeA 

Coming out on the recently relauched Relentless Records in March.

I remember a version many many moons ago, which I believe was recorded by Blue Pearl as their single “Can You Feel The Passion”, but they couldn’t get clearance for the Bizarre Inc sample. This bootleg isn’t a million miles away from how it sounded. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uWw3zeBdNVw 

11 – YASMIN FEATURING SHY FX & MS. DYNAMITE – LIGHT UP THE WORLD. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=USzW_yf9HNY

Had the original version of this track (minus Ms. Dynamite) since Carnival time last year and played it constantly for a couple of months! It’s finally coming out in the last week of January, but 5 months later it still sounds fresh.

12 – WILEY – BOOM BLAST. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SGxBOqUTFIQ

From the new album “Evolve Or Be Extinct”, Wiley’s third album in the past 10 months! There’s some real gems on the album including a skit about customs, in which the policeman sounds like Brian Harvey from East 17!

BEST OF 2011.

JAY-Z & KANYE WEST – N***AS IN PARIS – WATCH THE THRONE. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eXMJ-V6MCzw

Definitely one of my favourite songs from one of my favourite albums of 2011. During the recent live dates that they performed in the states, they performed this song up to SEVEN times in a row some nights! http://timeoutchicago.com/music-nightlife/music/15041285/watch-the-throne-kanye-west-and-jay-z-at-united-center-live-review-ph

WORST OF 2012??

Hate to end this post on a negative, but in contrast to the above Artists & Songs, although we’re only a week into the new year, I’m pretty sure this will be one of the worst singles released this year when we look back in December! Truly awful! If you thought Head Shoulders Knees & Toes was bad…..

K.I.G. FAMILY FEATURING KELLY PEPPER – DREAMS. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDxVUtbd1Qc
