At just 24 years old, South-London native Sasha Keable is a breath of fresh air. Returning today after a four-year hiatus, the songstress has unveiled her outstanding new offering ‘That’s The Shit’.
Sasha’s remarkable song-writing has certainly gained perspective in the last four years – her lyrics always seem to be either asking or answering questions. This idea of pretending to be something you’re not is a topic she tackles on her release today. Packed with jazz inflections, fluttering melodies and pitch shifted guitars, the track is led by Sasha’s brassy vocals that unpack all the different types of fronts people put on for others.
"‘That’s The Shit’ was written over three years ago with a producer called Prgrshn. It’s a bit of a piss take to all the men who go to clubs to buy bottles with money they don’t really have and the women who hover around them just to get a few drinks or a shag....!" – Sasha says of the record.
Keable was raised on Soul and Hip Hop, with some of her main influences being Donny Hathaway, Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye and Lauryn Hill and her eclectic tastes manifest themselves in her song writing and arrangements.
Although, she may seem a new face to some, she's no stranger to success and working hard. In the time since she first picked up a mic she’s dropped a scattering of releases – from 2013’s dream ‘Black Book’ to 2014’s gorgeously understated 4-track EP ‘Lemongrass & Limeleaves’ however, 2018 will see Sasha stand at the forefront of London’s young and fiendishly talented singer/songwriters with a collaborative ethic and Brit school pedigree.
This Spring he released the critically acclaimed "Molasses" (which was produced by duo Free n Losh) - an EP that touches on elements of jazz, hip-hop, classic r&b, and of course - postmodern soul. Its themes are universal, focusing on politics, socio-economic imbalances, love and loss.
Nakala continues to build on the momentum gained from her 2018 debut EP ‘Owe It To You’, which racked up 4 million streams on Spotify, as well as receiving support from BBC 1Xtra and Soulection. Her new single ‘Do It Right’ has arrived just in time for summer and is a collaboration with long time creative partner Jonah.
Providing an upbeat and addictive vibe to get you off your feet, 'Do It Right' is a showcase of flawless production and Nakala’s masterful flow, melding RnB and soulful hip hop in a way that shows she is one to watch. Nakala looks to keep pushing forward this year, with more new music on the way, and an expected 2 more EP’s in 2018.
"The song is just me, doing me. It’s for the summer, I was fucking around with other girls at the time but I still thought about my ex and imagined her with me and what what it would be like now. I loved the beat as soon as I heard it and I just wanted it to be a good vibe despite the reminiscent lyrics." - Nakala
'Do It Right' will be released on June 22nd via Majestic Casual Records.
Hailing from Birmingham, 23 year-old poet/rapper/humanitarian Marlenà Taylor draws on the power of story-telling and poetry through hip hop, and channels these forces to create a refreshing and personal take on the genre. Earlier this year Marlená took a leap of faith by stepping into a recording studio for the first time, and acting upon her burning passion for music she recorded her debut single ‘Wats Luv’.
Featuring a vocal hook reminiscent of 90s RnB era from vocalist Dee’John, Wats Luv showcases her honest approach to music making and depicts the ups and downs of the relationship in question. She explains:
“Wats Luv is a very personal song after I decided to call it quits. I feel as women, we tolerate a lot but at the end of it all every women have their breaking points and Wats Luv was my breaking point”
Bridging the gap between poetry and Hip Hop, Marlenà priorities artistic integrity over anything else and looks to use her voice to fearlessly inspire and motivate the next generation, explaining:
“Having the freedom of self expression and being able to connect with people through stories is powerful - I don’t want to make music for the moment - I feel it’s my responsibility to not conform to the demands of the world, but to the demands of the people. I feel like my mission on earth is to create music with a message”

Stalone has had a passion for artistic expression since her childhood, so naturally her talent caught the attention of Grammy-winning producer Dem Jointz, who produced Uropa along with Focus and Logann.
Inspired by Björk's Utopia and by Stalone’s own love for space (Europa is an ice water moon that orbits around Jupiter), Uropa is a vibrant and far-expanding sonic experience that perfectly fits its theme. It’s an adventure of styles and sounds set over five tracks, from haunting echoes to smooth melodies, or as Stalone herself put it:
“This project is like a weird dream, like what the music would sound like if Björk had a blunt in her mouth while her and I sit and take shots of Jack at a local bar in our space suits.”
Uropa is available now on SoundCloud

With their catchy choruses, pure vocals, and dynamic routines, JAGMAC is set to take the music world by storm! These siblings' unique blend of talents include: singing, songwriting, dancing, choreography, rapping, playing musical instruments, sign language. And probably most impressively, every member of JAGMAC holds a black belt in Taekwon-Do, and four members of the group are two-time world champion black belts in the Philippine martial art, Eskima.
With a slew of major accomplishments already to their name, JAGMAC kicked off 2018 with a special guest performance on the Emmy Award-winning FX series “Baskets.”They’re releasing their highly anticipated new single, “Right Back With You” this spring, and are performing at various shows and festivals across the US this summer and fall.
From funk and soul, to pop, rap, jazz, and rock & roll, JAGMAC grew up in an eclectic musical household, and these influences can be heard in their musical style and lyrics. The group co-writes all of their songs and have been in the studio penning a new album (scheduled to come out early fall 2018) with many of the industry’s top writers, including: Lauren Christy (Avril Lavigne, Bebe Rehxa, David Bowie) Pam Sheyne (Christina Aguilera) Bryan Todd (Miley Cyrus), Ben Adams (Craig David) and Manny Streetz!
In 2015, JAGMAC premiered their debut music video “Existence,” which was soon followed by the hits, “What’s Right With Me” and “Get Your Groove Back’, all while embarking on a series of UK performances that included performing at the famed Wembley Arena.
With their international fan-base growing, 2016 saw JAGMAC support ‘Little Mix’ on their sold out UK arena tour, and the group's heart-thumping track, “Soldiers” climbed to #15 on Billboard’s Hot Club Chart! Soon after, JAGMAC were invited to perform at ‘Promo Only Summer Sessions’ in Atlantic City, one of America’s most exciting industry showcases! The siblings performed for A-list US radio programmers, producers, DJs and record executives, following in the footsteps of past 'Summer Sessions’ performers that included Lady Gaga, BeBe Rexha, Timbaland, and Rita Ora.
In 2017 the group made their Los Angeles debut, performing at the ‘Young Entertainer Awards’ at Universal Studios. And while Disney Radio kept JAGMAC’s single “So Good” in rotation, they began recording new music with Grammy Award-winning artist, Theron Feemster (Neff-U), Graham Edwards (Justin Bieber, Rihanna), and Tommy Hubbard (The Trust Group).
JAGMAC is currently in Los Angeles working on their newest project and preparing for their 2018 summer tour. When they’re not on the road, the siblings reside at their home in Baltimore, MD, teach martial arts, and cook lots of family meals ... as they prepare for musical world domination!
