131. Clarence Clarity – Those Who Can’t, Cheat

Clarence Clarity returns dressed up like a Dirty Mind era Prince, Bhangra drums under one arm and channeling the digital odd ball funk of Jai Paul and Beck.
Clarence says of the video – “This is a tribute to M-theory, (artist) prostitution, leeches, reptiles, cockroaches and remorseless intellectual theft. It was filmed on location in Hiroshima, Japan. I star as a secret agent hell-bent on avenging the death of my dearest Zen master Fusajiro Yamauchi. This music video was shot in 4320p Ultra-HD and requires 3D glasses also – please don’t even think about watching unless you are properly equipped. ” Errr…ok.

Facebook / Soundcloud

Write a song, win a trip to Sweden” – That’s the promise of the Brooklyn Breweries annual song writing competition. Brett Moses and Nick LaGrasta gave it a bash and in Stockholm, The Teen Commandments were born. “Secret Lives of Voyeurs” is unashamed synth pop with keys and choruses not heard since the days of the double duran.

145. Yumi Zouma – The Brae

146. Formation – Waves

147. Junior Reid – Bubbler

148. C-Duncan – For

149. Laura Doggett – Phoenix

“Produced by Sohn” has become something of a stamp of quality of late and Laura Doggett’s “Phoenix” keeps that run of form going. It’s available as a free download. Laura was on the Glastonbury Festival Emerging Talent Competition longlist back in 2011 so perhaps the cred of a white hot producer will open the ears to fans who may not otherwise have listened to her work.

150. Buddy Peace / Wu Tang Klan – Wu Tang Is For The Children
