Yes Soulsters,
Here’s a live version of a seriously heavyweight tune first played on my 1xtra R&B show back in mid January.
It’s live musical bliss courtesy of Diva, Vula Malinga (Basement Jaxx) & her partner in crime, Geek of the duo, Ben Jones. Recorded at Recorded @ Fish Factory studios London, i know you’ll enjoy this moment captured by the Pinboard Blog crew.
The DivaGeek project looks like it’s going to be a big one so make sure you watch this space.
I’ll keep you across all things DivaGeek in the future. In the meantime get into it!

Yo R&B family,
HNY n all that.
Now, you know i always hit you up with the hottest videos and music on here and on the radio.
2012 is no exception and Mondays show was SUPER hot…Excuse the pun.
My special guest was the man tagged as Superman aka UK R&B star Jermaine Riley.
He gave us an exclusive preview of cuts from his forthcoming, red hot, Superman inspired album “Hello Earth”
It’s due to drop Jan 20th, has the sickest features and will be available absolutely free via his website
During the interview / preview, he played us the brand new single “Key To The City” created by bad boy producer Harmony and featuring Godfather of UK funky Donaeo.
I kid you not…this joint is absolutely banging!!
To listen to the full interview and album preview listen again to my BBC radio 1xtra R&B show by clicking HERE
For now check out the vid and enjoy.
Peace, Beats & Love

The talented KOF delivers the video for ‘Be Like You’ – which is the second single from his forthcoming project. ‘Be Like You’ has been playlisted on BBC Radio 1Xtra and has support from Radio 1, Capital Network, Amazing Radio and more.

The video builds on the theme of the song and is something you should take 5 mins of your day to check out and enjoy!

Big up KOF, directing the clip as well!

If you love your UK soul straight up organic, you really need to check this lil’ lady out.
Louise Golbey came to my attention thru Mr 100% Homegrown Ras Kwame and after playing her debut tune ‘Same Ol Same Ol’ and seeing her performance on the BBC Introducing stage @ Glastonbury, i was well n truly sold.
Louise has an E.P called ‘How It Is’ available to download now and you can also check for any additional info.
You know i wouldn’t misguide you when it comes to giving you the heads up on natural talent but if you want to see for yourself (and it is strongly advised that you do) peep this interview where L.G performs 3 tracks acoustically and flawlessly on my BBC Radio 1xtra R&B show.
