The official video for Matrix & Futurebound’s new single “Don’t Look Back” featuring vocalist Tanya Lacey is now live on the deb duo’s Vevo channel.
Check it out:
“Don’t’ Look Back” has already been dubbed Matrix & Futurebound’s best track so far by 1Xtra’s MistaJam.
Friday 2nd May 2014
The track features the hot new vocal talents of British singer/songwriter and star-in-the-making, Tanya Lacey. Prior to appearing on “Don’t Look Back”, Tanya’s finest moments have been writing and featuring on Loick Essien’s “How We Roll” and writing “T.H.E” by will.i.am ft Mick Jagger and Jennifer Lopez.
BBC 1 Xtra’s head of new tunes MistaJam gave “Don’t Look Back” its debut play on his show last night. Jam’s verdict? “…the best Matrix & Futurebound record so far” AND “So big it’s a monster” AND “If that’s not a hit I’ll eat my hat – with no seasoning.” In fact he liked it so much that he played it twice.
Don’t just take his word for it….listen to the play on our Soundcloud and see what you think.
“Don’t Look Back” is due for release on July 6th.

Famed for being first with all the hottest tracks, MistaJam did it again when he chose the Hudson Mohawke remix of Duck Sauce’s maddeningly infectious new single “NRG” as his Radio Ripper on 1 Xtra last night.

The single, taken from the New York duo’s upcoming album Quack, is due for release on June 22nd.

The video for Sigma’s smash new single “Nobody To Love” just went live on our YouTube channel.
Filmed on location in South Africa, the video is a big fat splash of fun in the sun.

It’s been a busy couple of days for 3 Beat’s top girl Baby Blue!
Her brilliant new single “Bump” has just been added to the BBC Radio 1 playlist and has taken the Number 1 spot on the Music Week Urban Club Chart. It’s also number 7 on the Shazam new release chart and number 29 on Shazam’s UK Top 200 (up from number 98 last week!). Great news for Blue and British female rappers.
“Bump” has been well supported over at 1Xtra too – Mistajam premiered the track and DJ Target and Charlie Sloth are both big fans. The single was play listed by 1Xtra, Kiss Fresh and Choice FM back in June. Early spins on Choice came from Firin Squad and from KC who has been championing “Bump” ever since! And the love is building over at Kiss FM. The Kiss Twitter feed was buzzing after Justin Wilkes played it on his daytime show. It’s also had a play on Live@Kiss and evening spins from Jez Welham and AJ.
“Bump” is out on August 11th, but you can pre-order your copy on iTunes now.
The official video for “Bump” has had more than 420 thousand views on Vevo, did you see it yet?

There was major excitement at 3Beat HQ today when the video for Sway’s brand new banger “Charge” landed.
Filmed in East London last week, the video is a beautifully shot call to follow your dreams. We especially love the rooftop shots, featured vocalist Mr Hudson’s close ups and Sway’s leather jacket! What do you think? Take a look here.
Sway video shoots are notorious for attracting famous faces who want to show their support to the UK’s premier lyricist. And the “Charge” shoot was no exception. Ed Sheeran came along for a cameo and brought a mate with him – One Direction heartthrob Harry Styles!
Earlier in the week, the single was added to BBC Radio 1Xtra’s C-list (a massive six weeks ahead of release). It was also Twin B’s record of the week on the 1Xtra breakfast show.
Sway popped in to chat to Twin B on Friday. Listen back here
Zane Lowe, MistaJam and Target have also been showing their support.
“Charge” is the third cut to be taken from Sway’s forthcoming album ‘The Deliverance’. It’s out on December 2nd.
