“Dr Who” Is Sarah Jane’s Smash!

3Beat173 Tujamo & Plastik Funk feat. Sneakbo - Dr Who (Blog Packshot)Make sure you lock in to Sarah Jane Crawford’s show on 1Xtra this week from 1pm til 4pm. She’s picked “Dr Who” by Tujamo & Plastik Funk featuring Sneakbo as her Single of the Week – ‘Sarah Jane’s Smash’ which means she’ll be playing it every day!

She gave the track its first spin today…in fact she loves it so much she played it TWICE in one show! Listen back to it here.

Sarah Jane’s verdict: “it’s an absolute tune”…”it is so infectious”…”I am absolutely loving this, the beat on it’s ridic, and the lovely Sneakbo is perfect for it as well.”

We couldn’t agree more. “Dr Who” is a guaranteed smash and it’s out on March 23rd. Grab your copy on pre-order here!

Stylo G talks Yardie & Poison Chang with The Voice Online

3Beat136 Stylo G - Soundbwoy (Packshot)

It might be raining outside but there’s no damping down the appetite for Stylo G’s new single “Soundbwoy”. Last night Kiss FM’s DJ Hype played the massive Sigma remix of the track. If you haven’t heard it yet have a listen here.

Today Stylo’s interview with The Voice Online went live. In it he talks to Dionne Grant about why he wants to celebrate the term ‘Yardie’ and opens up about his father, Jamaican dancehall star Poison Chang, who died when Stylo was just 13.

The day ended with People’s Prince Charlie Sloth playing “Soundbwoy” yet again on his drivetime show on 1Xtra. Thanks for all the support Charlie!

Definitely a good day at the office…

Sway Unveils New Single “Still Sway & Kane”

1Xtra listeners got a treat on Friday when legendary UK rapper Sway joined Charlie Sloth for a full 30 minutes of chat and banter.

Listen back here.

Sway also treated Charlie to an exclusive first play of his brilliant new single “Still Sway & Kane”. The track features the lyrical talents of seminal East London rapper and star of Channel 4’s “Top Boy” Kano, along with upcoming talent Tigger Da Author (who joined Sway and Charlie on the show). The single got a lot of love from Charlie and his listeners!

Inspired by Sway’s  favourite producer – hip-hop superstar Dr Dre – the track samples the Dre classic “Still D.R.E”. “Still Sway & Kane” had existed in demo form for some time but a chance meeting with Dre prompted Sway to release it as a single, putting a sharp UK spin on one of the most recognised songs in rap history.

The teaser video for the “Still Sway & Kane” went live on Vevo this weekend. If you didn’t see it already you can watch it here. AND there’s a behind the scenes video too.

Sway was on the road all weekend supporting Trey Songz in Leeds and Birmingham. If you missed him, you can still catch him live in the next couple of months.

Sway will headline Proud Galleries in London this Friday, February 1st – info AND he’s appearing with Example later in the month – dates.
