After I news about the BBC Sound of 2011 shortlist earlier this week I was curious to know the names of the pundits responsible for helping to compile this list, and found a link to this information via fellow blogger Marvin Spark’s blog. Thanks Sparks!
161 influential UK-based music critics, editors, broadcasters and bloggers helped put together the BBC Sound of 2011 list by naming their favourite new acts. The tastemakers were:

I’m happy to see the following names made it on that list.
Annika Allen – Editor & Co-owner, Flavour Magazine
Matilda Egere-Cooper – Music Writer, The Independent
Marsha Gosho Oakes – Editor/Founder, SoulCulture.co.uk
I do however think that it’s an absolute travesty that I wasn’t asked by the BBC to help compile this year’s list. Queen Ice Cream and Mafiella deserved to make that shortlist alongside this years nominees Jessie J and Wretch 32, and I could have made that happen.
UPDATE: In response to this post FURIOUS visitor The Truth stopped by and left this comment.
