Vanessa Elisha Shares Down For This Remix

Vanessa Elisha

Just last month, Vanessa Elisha premiered “Down For This” via Complex which landed her at #2 on the Billboard.com emerging artist chart.

His production of Tkay Maidza’s Switch Lanes gained him a spot in triple j’s hottest 100.

Mourning Birds release debut album "Mourning Birds"

Mourning Birds release debut album "Mourning Birds"

Mourning Birds

Mourning Birds are hard working, hard playing, hard smoking Medway punks with integrity and passion. Their introductory body of work is a mighty montage of what the heck blues explosions, garage rock anthems, furious riffs, menacing bass lines, beats of madness and primal howls.

A third of the tracks have been made public in just over a year. Though yet to be heard of by most, every single one earned amazing feedback from music fans, fantastic write ups and track of the day/week/month accolades.

Their enigmatic live presence also won 2014/2015 Festival slots including Camden Crawl, The Great Escape, Tramlines plus landmark shows like This Feeling and, recently, Music Week Rising. The brand new recordings to be heard on this album have even more sex appeal.
