    LITTLE JESUS
    Little Jesus is a band from southern Mexico City founded by Santiago Casillas. Santigo began to draw the attention of the blogs thanks to a series of dance beats and original tunes – it’s a sound that they define as tropipop.
    In late 2013, Little Jesus presented his debut album NORTH – a collection of nine songs including singles like Berlin and Azul. Little Jesus have won awards in the 2014 O Music Awards Indie (Independent Music Awards in Mexico), for best band, best new artist, best song, best album and best live rock act.

    KIERAN LEONARD
    The making of Good Luck Everybody, the magnificent second album by Kieran Leonard, involved a dizzying personal odyssey for its creator, which took him from a church in the wilds of Yorkshire to the sun-dappled Hollywood Hills. A massively ambitious step-up from his lauded 2012 debut Out Of Work Astronaut, these 13 tracks showcase a talent readying himself for take-off.

    JELANI BLACKMAN
    There’s little known about Jelani, apart from the fact that he currently has one track out that’s been picked up by the likes of Noisey and Fader. One other thing we do know is that he is set to appear on a track with another act on a lot of people’s radar, Sylas, and that this track just so happens to also feature Brian Eno.

    The one track that has been released has revealed a captivatingly original sound that shows overflowing potential from this young Londoner and leaves everyone on the edge of their seat, waiting for more.
    Soundcloud

    TURAN
    Releasing his debut EP Persistence of Memory last month, critics are clamouring over how to define newcomer turan’s avant-garde sound. The East London based multi-instrumentalist, producer and artist’s first musical offering, named after a Salvador Dali painting, flows like a film score, and intricately weaves in and out of dreams and reality. Influenced by a diverse range of artists, from Radiohead and Sade, to Hans Zimmer and Pink Floyd, turan’s euphoric slow-building sound, laced with solemn, deep rap vocals, began life in his home studio. Leading the visual direction for all 4 videos for each track off the EP, we expect big things from Turan in 2015.
    Soundcloud

    OTHASOUL
    The definition of a ‘trio’ in musical terms is a method of three different sounds/voices to make music via instrumentation or vocalisation – OthaSoul, which is comprised of Dozer Carter (Producer/MC), Jungle VIP (MC/Producer) and DMobbs (Producer) embody and exceed the definition, adding the flavourful undercurrent of eclectic Hip Hop.

    Following the success of Jungle VIP’s BBC Radio One hit ‘One’ produced by Dozer Carter, the duo added the production skills of soul hip-hop producer DMobbs – whose fresh, full and versatile beats complement perfectly- to create OthaSoul.

    Last month, Crushed Beaks returned from the wilderness to announce their debut album, ‘Scatter’. Now, we’re delighted to confirm a special DIY Presents show with the band in November.

    They’ll play London’s The Old Blue Last on 15th November 2015, with Venus Lyx supporting and another band TBA.

    It’s free entry, with doors open from 8pm.

    Arriving as a newly-fledged trio (Matt Poile and Alex Morris are now joined by Scott Bowley), their pack mentality upped its game last month with ‘Rising Sign’, the lead track from their debut LP.

    Produced by Pete “Hutch” Hutchings, the album was recorded in film composer Fabio Frizzi’s Rome studio. ‘Rising Sign’ is out 24th November, with ‘Scatter’ out 9th February 2015.

    Jet Setter
    Jet Setter are following up their debut single ‘Not Yet’ with another 2 minutes full of hooks and great guitars called ‘Dippin’ Toes’. The four-piece, signed to Dublin’s Any Other City label (Girl Band, Villagers), have received praise from both sides of the Atlantic for ‘Not Yet’ and its flipside ‘Cut Shorts’. From their first practice onwards Jet Setter realised how good it feels to play straight-to-the-point, fuzzy Indie-Rock, which translates organically into their live show. ‘Dippin’ Toes’ is released on October 17th, complemented with an Irish and UK tour.

    Jehst X Strange U

    Jehst joins forces with space cadet duo Strange U for a UK tour this November! A rare opportunity to see the celebrated lyricist as he takes a short break from working on his forthcoming album to bring his unique brand of Hip Hop to the stage; alongside inter-dimensional oddballs Strange U!

    JEHST
    Having been at the forefront the UK’s Hip-Hop scene for the past decade and a half, Jehst has asserted himself as possibly the most influential rapper to ever emerge from these shores.

    Bursting onto the scene in 1999 with the cult-classic ‘Premonitions’, the independently released EP was hailed by critics and fans alike for its poetic vocals and forward-thinking production; launching the now iconic YNR Productions label and the career of this truly inspirational artist. Pushing the boundaries of his chosen art-form while providing the blueprint for countless sound-alikes, Jehst’s sound has defined a generation. With a discography now stretching into triple figures his career has been typified by a restless creativity and side-projects galore.

    With a fiercely loyal fan-base spread not only throughout Europe, but across the Atlantic and as far afield as Australia, Jehst’s reputation is set in stone. Still on the cutting edge in 2014, this cult-hero is building an empire, one brick at a time.
    Facebook

    STRANGE U
    Strange U’s enthusiasm for the off key and weird reigns supreme. Their stream of consciousness lyricism coupled with hefty left of centre soundscapes are the perfect antidote to today’s bland plastic corporate rap. Strange U is a collaborative project centered around two Hip Hop veterans – King Kashmere IV and producer Doctor Zygote.

    Live, Strange U seek to get away from the traditional Hip Hop set up of rapper rapping, DJ playing instrumentals. They both trigger sounds live on samplers and the sonics are bathed in a wash of Dub echoes and spring reverb. It makes for a truly psychedelic experience.

    BEVERLY
    The former Vivian Girls/Crystal Stilts/Dum Dum Girls member Frankie Rose has been releasing some wonderfully swoony indie-pop solo albums over the last few years, and now she’s half of a new duo called Beverly. The other half is Drew Citron, who plays in her live band and also in the New York band Avan Lava. Citron is the lead songwriter, but Rose’s sugary harmonies are a good reason to listen to anything, and they are very much in evidence on “Honey Do,” the duo’s first song that went out in March.
    Beverly are a fuzzy, warm ’90s-style pop jam band, and ‘Honey Do’ is only one of many reasons to get excited by them.

    GUERILLA TOSS
    Guerilla Toss were birthed from the depths of the sweaty basements of Boston, Massachusetts and are nowadays considered to be a New England underground staple by the freaks and weirdos that inhabit the region. The band have churned out numerous cassettes, records, and CDs in the past two years on on labels such as Feeding Tube Records, John Zorn’s Tzadik, Sophomore Lounge, and Digitalis Ltd. By touring relentlessly and providing their audience with an unforgettably intense live show that demands, and encourages, ravaging physical body movement of the listener, Guerilla Toss have quickly garnered a cult following.

    Guerilla Toss succeed in using the power of dissonance, aggression, and disorientation to derail the dancefloor, whilst maintaining high-energy spectacle in its loudest, rawest embodiment to date.

    Kalle Mattson
    Recorded throughout 2012 & 2013, Kalle Mattson’s newest full-length was produced by The Wooden Sky’s Gavin Gardiner and features appearances by Juno-nominated artists The Wooden Sky, Cuff The Duke & a song co-written by Kalle & renowned singer-songwriter Jeremy Fisher. Someday, The Moon Will Be Gold fully embraces the duality of hope and death, from the summery jangle of “Pick Me Up” to the opulent & euphoric “Eyes Speak”, this is a record that takes the young 22-year old songwriter to the next level both musically & lyrically.

    “I had written about my mom in the past but never as honest as I was on all of these new songs” says Mattson. “I wanted to fully put down my own story. In a lot of ways I felt like all I had left was this record and finishing it. What I had put off for five years all came back to me in that house and I dealt with it by writing.”

    With STMWBG Kalle Mattson follows up a string of two critically acclaimed full-lengths (2009s Whisper Bee & 2011s Anchors), an EP (2012s Lives In Between), and two viral music videos for “Water Falls” (over 250,000 views) & “Thick As Thieves” (over 1,000,000 views). Anchors was mixed by Howie Beck (Feist, Jason Collett, Hayden) and saw Kalle tour in support of the album with stops at CMW, NXNE, Pop Montreal, Ottawa Bluesfest, tours with Sunparlour Players, Cuff The Duke, Jeremy Fisher and opening slots with Jim Bryson, The Rural Alberta Advantage and Blue Rodeo. The album also received a pair of Northern Ontario Music Award wins for Album of the Year (Group) & SOCAN Songwriter of the Year.

    Her first three Soundcloud uploads all hit the top 10 on HypeMachine (with ‘I Don’t Need Another Lover’ going to #1), her debut headline show sold out in two days and she recently signed a publishing deal with Warner Chappell (home to London Grammar, Lianne La Havas and Royal Blood). She has also been added to Giles Peterson’s next Brownswood release and recently travelled with Wet to play at the Fleche D’Or in Paris.
