[Video and Audio] Guvna B – Sending One Up

New Guvna B Single Challenges Judgemental Apathy You’ve probably seen it in action.  I’ve certainly had to stop myself doing it: someone starts off as a hugely passionate Christian. And then they’re not as passionate. Then they might even completely disappear off the radar… So what to do? Write them off, get on my rather high spiritual horse? Or show a little compassion and concern? Guvna B … Continue reading [Video and Audio] Guvna B – Sending One Up

[Video] J.A – ‘2013 Freestyle’

I came across North London-based J.A. completely by accident on the 5th of January 2013 when he tweeted me a link to his track called ‘2013 New Year Freestyle’. As you can probably imagine I get sent quite a few links to check out, and a lot of them tend not to be as exciting as the sender probably thinks they are. For one, a lot of so-called ‘freestyles’ … Continue reading [Video] J.A – ‘2013 Freestyle’

Top UK Gospel Sunshine Tunes to Warm Your Winter (Part 1)

So: it’s that time of the year again…

3-4 layers of insulated clothing is the norm (my default is 4).  The dark days are longer, and my wearing a hoodie to bed isn’t a strange sight to my family.

The warm orange glow around the country (not to mention the heady, feel-good summer vibe of the Olympics) is a distant, taunting memory as we go about cold life in winter-grey UK.


2011 had already threatened what has now become known as the ‘Afrobeats’ movement, but 2012 was when the music actually broke into the mainstream.  Inevitably, a lot of that is represented here.

For one last time before 2012 is over, break out your (real or imagined) sunglasses, winter barbecue, ice cream and sunscreen and enjoy some of the best UK Gospel Tropical tunes to bring the heat back into your life…

[Video] – Brand new music from Writeway Music

Ever since they announced their joint WriteWay Music project to the world Tunday, Rhema, Leke and Presha J have been fussy about the quality control around every product put out under the WriteWay banner. Their new single, New Song (taken from their upcoming new album), is the latest example of the boys’ ethos, a welcome addition to a year that – in my view at least … Continue reading [Video] – Brand new music from Writeway Music

Utter Once Announces ‘Who’s Dat’ Remixtape

Even if the name is unfamiliar, you’ll undoubtedly know the voice and the songs he appeared on.

And yes, it’s the same Utter Once from the Gospel MOBO award-winning group ‘G-Force‘.

Collaboration King

If anyone genuinely deserves the handle ‘collaboration king’, it’ll be him.  He’s guested on some of the biggest tunes the UK gospel scene has had to offer in recent years: Victizzle‘s ‘iSing‘, Faith Child‘s ‘First Place‘ and Lola Godheld‘s ‘Studio‘, not to mention a seemingly endless array UK tracks floating around the underground.

Best 2010 tracks you NEVER heard (2)

Second in my ‘Best 2010 Track You Never Heard’ series: ‘A Yellow Man’ This came out of nowhere. Literally. September 2010: one day there was there was nothing. And then the next evening it seemed all of Twitter and Facebook was abuzz with sibling/friend combo ‘A Yellow Man‘. This excellent video by PDesigns was the reason why. Sadly, I haven’t heard anything from them since, … Continue reading Best 2010 tracks you NEVER heard (2)
