It’s a mix this season, a lil bit of folk pop here n’ a lil bit of Afro-beat there!
FUSE ODG Ft Angel: T.I.N.A
I had the priority listening pleasure of hearing this Afro-pop trailblazer in mid-August. It’s virtually impossible not to like it, and the added brilliance of the UK’s ‘Angel’ definitely makes it a fire hit.
‘T.I.N.A’ (This Is New Africa) is the fifth single and title track to be taken from Fuse’s highly anticipated debut solo album ‘T.I.N.A’which is due to drop on October 12th. The single is a celebration of Fuse’ love for his motherland, and his timing for the single’s release couldn’t have been any more perfect…just in time for Black History Month!
The Ghanaian South Londoner is certainly flying high in 2014 with over a million plus records sold and three silver status singles – ‘Antenna’, ‘Million Pound Girl’ and ‘Dangerous Love’, which spent 10 consecutive weeks in the UK top 20. And if that wasn’t enough, we hear from the grapevine that Fuse has been nominated for a trio of awards at this year’s MOBO’s.

Hudson and Taylor: Chasing Rubies (Acoustic Version)
With being streamed over one million times on Spotify and over one million YouTube views, the acoustic version of ‘Chasing Rubies’is definitely a firm live favourite! I don’t think Hudson Taylor will be remaining an underground duo for very much longer. The duo’s new single is a beautiful addition to their stringy collection of folk pop songs and is definitely worthy of the repeat button in your music playlist this Autumn.
With 30,000 copies of their EP already sold, 2014 has witnessed HD sell out their biggest headline show to date at London’s Electric Ballroom. Now the boys are set to finish their much anticipated debut album set for release early next year whist also preparing to join Jake Bugg on his UK Tour as main support from Sunday 5th – Tuesday 21st October 2014.
