Clay – Can I Have My Heart Back
(Cellaa Music)

On the 23rd of January Europe’s most promising Reggae newcomer by the name of Clay will release his new single “Can I Have My Heart Back” on the Silly Walks Discotheque label. The song describes the despair of a young man whose relationship ends all of a sudden. Clay’s distinctive silky smooth voice and the sweet, but powerful riddim track played by Gentleman’s band The Evolution is compelling and sticks to your ears at the first time listening. The music video to the song was shot in Brixton by director Til Maier.

Annique – Heads Up 
(Asphalt Tango Records)
Jazz / Singer / Songwriter / Pop

Annique’s voice is for the inner ear and open heart, a soul singer’s instrument carrying the freight of past greats while trailing its own strong colours. You can hear World Music, Jazz and Rock. It’s mature Pop with dark, shady recesses, theatrical and bittersweet. The lyrics are smart and insightful, shaped by Annique’s lifelong education in Pop, Jazz, R&B, and dance music.

Various Artists – Contuse 10 

The 10th release of a label is always a big milestone – a reason to celebrate and a moment to review the events that took place in the past. In this sense CONTUSE presents a collection of exclusive material an the most important pieces from the label artists. Between the tracks of Dapayk solo and DJ 3000 – obviously the protagonists in the first decade – you will find Marcel Knopf, Distale also known as Michael Knop and the freshman Alexander Franz. The sound of CONTUSE is pure and functional techno connecting the metropoles of Detroit and Berlin.

Crying Lion150

Crying Lion – The Golden Boat 
(Honest Jon’s Records)

Refreshing, rootedly odd, mostly unaccompanied four-part-harmony singing recorded in Govan Old Parish Church, Glasgow, by members of Trembling Bells and Muldoon’s Picnic. Elements of Sacred Harp, Gregorian chant, medieval madrigal and English folk, with poetic influences including Maya Deren, Saint John The Divine and Dennis Potter — a unique blend of the visionary and the earthly, the intimate and glorious.
