Aspiring Artists / musicians looking for collabs and connects: BBC 1EXTRA DJ TARGET’S Twitter Project – #targetsnoticeboard
If, like us, you listen to BBC 1Xtra, you’ll already be familiar with this genius idea championed by DJ Target. The twitter hashtag #TARGETSNOTICEBOARD was started recently for new and unsigned artists (anywhere in the world) to get their work featured online and even live on air during DJ Target’s show – how amazing is this opportunity for artists struggling to get noticed in the industry?!
Here are a few up and coming artists fresh off the noticeboard today:
1. Young Slugz with ‘Perfection’ (they’re looking for a female vocalist for their tracks)
2. Roll One Up – Drama Feat Jamie Lewis @jayeluk @gmta drama
Have you heard the new single from Jessie J? Radios started playing it a couple of weeks back but the more you listen, the better it sounds. Jessie J is getting back to her grittier roots by teaming up with original grime scene man Dizzee Rascal and American rapper Big Sean. Ok, there’s still a bit of sugary pop in there, but the mixup between Jessie’s vocals, Dizzee’s grime and Big Sean’s rhymes works a treat. The video shows Jessie J sporting her new shaved do – is she trying too hard to look like Wiz Khalifa’s Amber Rose? Tell us what you think…

T.I. keeps himself busy with an acting career as well has as his music and record label (Grand Hustle Records) and is currently filming his part in movie ‘Last Vegas’.
T.I.’s record label, Grand Hustle Records, signed both Iggy Azalea and Chipmunk in 2012. T.I. also executive produced Iggy Azalea’s mixtape EP ‘Glory’ and he also appeared in her song ‘Murda Bizness’
Whatever you’re up to this bank holiday (lets face it if its raining it ain’t gonna be much!) here are some fresh new tunes straight out of London Taan to keep you in an ayre mood.
First up is T-Star (Juvenilez) with track “Carry Home” [Video By @PacmanTV] (follow them on twitter @TstarJVZ). This track really grows on you. They’ve done well for an upcoming group to get the perfect mix of beats, rhymin and sweet vocals to break it all up. Juvenilez are made up of 4 members (2 rappers and 2 singers): AJ (14), Gabriella (15), T-Star (14) & Indiana (13). Serious talent for such youngsters – we predict great things for these guys! If you wanna find out more have a look at their slick site: http://juvenilez.com/
Second tune comes from our absolute favourites right now – FlowNtrees. Not only do these boys spit well, they are looking gooood too. We’d describe their vibe as a mix of German hip hop group ‘Freundeskreis‘, meets ‘Bones Thugs and Harmony’ with a dosing of (vintage) Snoop Dogg thrown in. Mellow is the name of their game.
They have a load of tunes you can watch on youtube, our favourite has to be a seriously chilled beat called ‘Lil Old School’. It has a sexy slow beat and wreaks of 90s cool. The vid on their trip to the Dam is worth a butchers too. These boys like their Mary Jane 🙂 We’re hoping they’ll take time out for a WhenMiParty.com interview soon as we’d love to find more out about how they started and where they’re headin. For now, roll a big one, sit back and listen to ‘Lil Old School’
Last but by no means least we wanted to tell you about a fierce lady called ‘frizz’. A lady with serious rhymin skills. We like her tune “One Mic” which starts off with a Phil Collins style sampler and chills out into an RnB beat. Annoyingly all her vids are disabled for embedding so here is the link – watch right to the end for a mad hectic ending. She good, she real good.
