NEW MUSIC: MEL B – ‘WHO’S IS IT’

Former Spice Girl Mel B (Melenie Brown) really should be prevented from entering a recording studio. ‘Who’s Is It’ produced by Scott Storch is an absolute mess! I actually like Mel B but singing isn’t her forte.  Just leave it a lone Mel….. Your thoughts please……..

VIDEO: M.I.A PERFORMING AT THE DIESEL 30TH ANNIVERSARY PARTY

The UK’s M.I.A performed at the Diesel 30th Anniversary party that took place in Brooklyn this past weekend. T.I and N.E.R.D also performed. I really don’t know how M.I.A gets away with it, I really don’t! Her music is absolute shite yet for some reason the industry’s embraced her wholeheartedly and people (particularly Stateside) continue to lap up her unique brand of garbage.   The “singer/rapper” tied the knot very suddenly several months ago ( to the  son of Warner Music Group’s CEO, Edgar Bronfman, Jr), and []

UK MUSIC: ALESHA DIXON – ‘THE BOY DOES NOTHING’

UK MUSIC – THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY Former Mis-Teeq group member and ‘Celebrity Strictly Come Dancing’ winner Alesha Dixon’s new track ‘The Boy Does Nothing’ (taken from her forthcoming album ‘The Alesha Show’), premiered today, and is exactly what I expected from Alesha. Irritating, weak, radio friendly, mainstream bubblegum pop. And I doubt that the other tracks on her album will sound any different. I have nothing against the woman, but she needs to forget about pursuing a music career. She simply does []

TRACK OF THE DAY: PODGY FIGURES – ‘PODGY’

I was first introduced to the sounds of UK rapper Podgy Figures back in 2005. I think he saw himself as being Britain’s answer to 50 Cent and had a relatively large fan base….. Any way a friend emailed me his 2005 track ‘Podgy’ and I became instantly hooked. I still have it downloaded on my ipod. Whenever I hear this track I just double up with laughter. I could be having the WORST day but this track always manages to bring on huge belly laugh. It’s hilariously bad. I []
