The only thing tutor and student usually ever in common is the fact they work in the same place.

Making Noize Production, tutor, with Harmonix met Cynthia Taiwo, student, while teaching a music course at an East London media college. The body of work they all managed to come up with, a festival party anthem, is A star!

Rudimental, the platinum selling 4 piece unveiled their latest offering, Love Aint Just A Word featuring grime legend Dizzee Rascal and Anne-Marie. Although Dizzee is obviously a big pull feature wise, its Anne-Marie's distinctively rough vocals that carries this bouncy Reggae, DnB and Ska fused riddim!

The South London collective, House Of Pharoahs, release their latest body of work, Southern Stamp EP. The EP. which is probably going to be on repeat for alot of stoners, has melodic and euphoric productions with thought provoking lyrics of youth struggle. Not the best mix down job in terms of sound quality, but watching HOP perform live might have to be the next list to tick off this summer.

Former Ugandan child soldier, Goddaz, still has a fighters spirit in him. Here, he heads up his latest track, Joint Enterprise: Not Guilty by Association (JENGbA), a grass roots campaign launched by families wanting to highlight the abuse of the Joint Enterprise doctrine. The verses highlight the plight many young people and their families go through, when charged but claim, not guilty by association. Thought provoking, political music.

Etta Bond, when are you going to drop a full body of work? this ask must be echoing all over her social media platform. Seen And Never Heard with Chris Loco is one of her best vocal works to date, simply for it's laid back and effortlessly soulful tone on a groove sound. Album? we're waiting!

Goddaz - JENGbA is also available to purchase from iTunes HERE
