5 ARTISTS YOU SHOULD BE LISTENING TO

GEORGE FITZGERALD

2018 has seen electronic musician and DJ George Fitzgerald release his latest record, ‘All That Must Be’. Firmly establishing his dominance in the electronic music scene, the album documents Fitzgerald moving back to London to begin life with his newly born daughter after serving the Berlin club scene for the last decade. But alongside the more mellow composition of tracks like ‘Passing Trains’ – there are still plenty of moments of kinetic ecstasy to be found on the album.

RAYE

Back in 2016, Rachel Keen (professionally known as RAYE) was featured on Jonas Blue’s single “By Your Side” and, Jax Jones’ single “You Don’t Know Me”, which saw her career spiralling to where it is now – collaborating creatively with Charli XCX and Stormzy and releasing her own EP ‘Side Tape’. The 6-track project features hit singles ‘Decline’ and ‘Cigarette’, alongside the club vibes of ‘Crew’ and smooth R&B in ‘Confidence’.

EBENEZER

Having worked with the likes of Craig David, Ty Dolla $ign and Jeremih, Ebenezer release his first solo track ‘Cliché’ last year and has now released the much anticipated ’53 Sundays’ – a conceptual project inspired by his questioning of the importance of Church and God. It showcases not only his musical talents but also his storytelling abilities, and it has tipped him as being one to watch in the scene.

MABEL

Spanish born Swedish singer/songwriter Mabel was always destined for greatness. The daughter of Grammy-nominated pop icon Neneh Cherry and Massive Attack producer Cameron McVey, she stated in an interview with the Evening Standard that she had always worried that she wouldn’t be taken seriously. She needn’t have, as Mabel now has her own, entirely self-constructed career. Having crafted a unique and soulful blend of R&B, pop and afrobeats, she cracked the Top 10 with her track ‘Finders Keepers’, and new single ‘One Shot’ hasn’t disappointed.

JOAN

After releasing their debut EP ‘Portra’ this summer, indie-pop duo Joan are quickly becoming the go-to band for catchy synthpop with a The 1975 guitar revival. Made up of Alan Thomas and Steven Rutherford, their EP includes previously released standouts like ‘Love Somebody Like You’ and ‘Tokyo’, alongside some newer releases which are arguably even more catchy than their earlier tracks.
