There aren’t many artists who can boast an audience topping over 110 million, but there is one such man who can – MARTIN SOLVEIG. Now synonymous with much of what the illustrious Frenchman does, the SMASH YouTube series that kicked started the success of ‘Hello’ almost 2 years ago, which just happens to be one of the biggest records in recent times, is back again with…’Episode 4: The Night Out’!
Released in conjunction with his next hit single “The Night Out” which debuted on April 2nd globally, this new installment sees Martin, with the help of trusty and some would say legendary ‘manageur’ Lafaille finally beginning to win over the heart of his longtime love, SHE. Featuring cameos from the likes of A-Trak, Laidback Luke, Sidney Samson, Madeon, Porter Robinson, Zedd and Dillon Francis– some of whom feature on the EP – this episode CANNOT BE MISSED! Having originally lost out to Gael Monfils in the battle for SHE months ago, the quest begins in earnest again as Martin and Lafaille create a special movie premiere for their first date. As with anything Martin’s ‘manageur’ touches, things do not go to plan… but with the help of scooters, boats and the Parisian scenery, can her heart be won over by the end of their night out?
“The Night Out” is the 4th single to be taken from the critically acclaimed album “SMASH”
Sway returns in style with his brilliant new single ‘Level Up’ on 8th April through 3 Beat Records. The track has been Zane Lowe’s Hottest Record In The World as well as getting the seal of approval from MistaJam.
Never one to conform to the norm, Sway constantly looks for ways to stand out from the crowd and he will have heads and ears turning with his latest offering. Combining Flux Pavilion’s speaker-oscillating dubstep production with Sway’s signature lyrical word-play and newcomer Kelsey McHugh’s soulful vocals on the hook, ‘Level Up’ brings a unique sonic to the table. “The song is about winning, elevation, going from one stage in your life to a better one,” explains Sway. “I wanted to the capture that moment and that feeling we get when we feel like we’ve achieved something that will change your life.” The collaboration with Flux Pavillion came about when Sway was introduced to the producer’s music by 1Xtra’s Semtex. Making contact with the producer via Facebook, Sway discovered Flux was a fan and within weeks the pair were working in the studio together.

Amnesia is available to download now on Skepta’s latest album Doin’ It Again itunes – click here
When P Diddy asked his twitter followers to recommend the best UK MC for him to collaborate with, the response was unanimous: Skepta. Indeed, when the annals of grime are written, MC and producer Skepta (aka ‘The King), will be considered as crucial to its development as the more celebrated Wiley (aka ‘The Godfather’), and Dizzee Rascal.
As part of the collective Boy Better Know that includes his brother JME, Skepta has been instrumental in the elevation of the grime scene. Not only have Boy Bettter Know released some of the most seminal anthems, albums and mixtapes on the scene, but they have produced tracks, provided lyrics or created artwork for peers such as Tinchy Stryder, Jay Sean and N-Dubz. It is these achievements that differentiate Skepta from his contemporaries and sees him effortlessly still impact on the underground scene while appealing to a wider commercial audience. Both his third studio album ‘Doin it again’ and his forthcoming single ‘Amnesia’ are testimony to this.
Juxtaposing anthemic riffs and infectious choruses with guttural lyrics and big bass-lines, each track on ‘Doin’ It Again’ has crossover potential, without compromising Skepta and Boy Better Know’s renowned grime roots. Highlights on the album include previously released singles ‘Bad Boy’, ‘Rescue Me’ and ‘Cross My Heart’ alongside Skepta’s monumental remix of Diddy Dirty Money’s, ‘Hello Good Morning’.
