US artist/producer Mikey Mike has collaborated with Rihanna - co-producing on her album 'Unapologetic', which also saw producer credits for heavy hitters such as David Guetta and Stargate - as well as being signed to Universal's publishing arm for several years but has remained relatively unknown. But that's all set to change, thanks to the help of legendary producer Rick Rubin and a Megaforce (the filmmaking collective behind the likes of 'Sacrilege' by Yeah Yeah Yeahs) directed Canon advert sync.

Bushstock Festival @ various venues across Shepherd's Bush, London (10 June 2017) // Words: Saam Das


Now firmly established as one of London's finest one-day festivals, the Communion Records-run Bushstock once again descends on Shepherd's Bush. The festival typically has a strong dedication to new music, much like the mid-noughties clubnights that spawned the Communion brand, previously featuring on-the-rise acts such as Bastille and Daughter before they hit big. We've highlighted a few of our choice bands from the 2017 line up below:

Interestingly, Port Isla's 'A.L.I.V.E' (a solid #24 in my top tracks of 2015) threw in a huge-sounding chorus about how the band "never look back", and now a new chapter has begun for the band. Check out their fresh start on 'Higher' and 'The Light' below.

Norway's Propeller Recordings are one of our fave labels from across the lands, having brought the likes of Team Me and Highasakite to the fore in recent times. They've pulled another stunner from the bag, with this galloping new track from Thea & The Wild, ahead of their forthcoming tour of their homeland.

We've been keeping tabs on Ellie James for rather a long time now, first writing about her music way back in 2011. Back then we saw parallels to the same magic of the young Laura Marling that we saw play in a North London pub at one of her earliest gigs. Ellie's latest evolution is as Little Rêd and you can listen to her debut track 'Hell' below.

We first wrote about Mt. Wolf over five years ago(!), and they've finally finally announced news of their debut album - 'Aetherlight' is due out on May 26th. Now admittedly, the London band have some mitigating circumstances for this delay, having actually split before a welcome return in late 2014. Listen to the soaring 'Heavenbound' below.
