Mobo Awards Krept and Konan Wiley FKA Twigs Lianne La Havas

The recent renaissance in British grime music has been reflected in 2015’s Mobo Awards nominations, with JME and Krept and Konan scooping four nominations each.

Grime artists account for 27 nominations in total across all available categories. London duo Krept And Konan, who scored a Top Ten hit with ‘Freak of the Week’ earlier in 2015, are nominated in four categories including Best Male, Best Song, Best Hip Hop and Best Album, the latter for their album The Long Way Home, which entered the UK charts at Number 2 back in July.

JME, the co-founder of the Boy Better Know record label and a big artist in his own right, is nominated in three of the same categories as Krept And Konan, except he’s up for Best Grime rather than Best Hip Hop.

Prince Lianne La Havas

Prince has officially announced his band's presence in the UK with a press conference and live performance held in the home of British soul singer Lianne La Havas, followed by a surprise gig at Camden's Electric Ballroom. The funk singer has been playing with his new band - the three-piece 3rdEyeGirl - to promote their upcoming album Plectrum Electrum, including the new single 'PretzelBodyLogic' which has been described by Prince as "funk 'n' roll."

Lianne La Havas became friends with the musician after meeting him in the US. "He heard my music, somehow, two years ago and decided he wanted to meet me!" she said. The singer said she offered up her room as a joke when she heard he was headed to the UK. "I've never had [a global megastar] play in my house, but Prince has been here before. A few months ago. [He's] very respectful, which is good. He's tidy and just lovely."

David Cameron Gives Romantic Mixtape To G8 Leaders, Who's On It?

Prime Minister David Cameron has promoted young British musicians by giving all the G8 leaders a 10-track USB stick containing songs from Alt-J, Conor Maynard, Laura Mvula and Gabrielle Aplin with a very prominent theme of love.

Perhaps the Tory party leader is attempting to up his "cool" factor or seem down with the kids - the voters of tomorrow - having also recently been seen at Oxfordshire's Cornbury Festival and regularly sharing his music taste with reporters. The ten songs weren't selected by the busy PM however, rather the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) assembled the tracklist presented to each of the G8 leaders on a USB stick.

Lianne La Havas - Is Your Love Big Enough Album Review


A conveyor belt it may be but, as Adele has found to her perpetual benefit, we British are suckers for a song. The voices may change, but the millions of dewy-eyed talent show watchers are perpetually tuning in because nothing douses us all in delirious pathos more than a tune which begs to be shouted into hairbrushes across the nation.

Lianne La Havas reportedly considered joining that circus, but it's plain that Is Your Love Big Enough isn't the record she would've made under the star-making tutelage of Cowell et al. You imagine it having already reached the upper echelons of the charts is therefore both a happy fact and vindication of steering the unfashionable, patient course; as a result of this decision, its virtues are many and experience suggests that her career is likely to be significantly longer for it.

Barely a review will have been written without reference to the top of the female solo artist tree, a field which now appears to have opened up again due to circumstances tragic and happy for the Winehouse and Adkins families respectively. Add to this the fragile and understandably tentative return of Corinne Bailey Rae and the decision to avoid anything with a panel of doe-eyed inquisitors appears even more perceptive by the month.

Lianne La Havas, Forget EP Review


Everything about Lianne La Havas seems nice. Nice style, nice coiffed hair and a nice big grin. Though thankfully, her voice matches to create a fresh, different artist that there's definitely space for this year. But don't worry this doesn't make her boring. The perfection around her name makes her the opposite.
