MARK SHERRY – THE DEBUT ALBUM ‘CONFIRM HUMANITY’

Two years back Mark Sherry had his humanity questioned. Nobody – least of all he – could have known it’d trip off his first artist album.

MARK SHERRY ANNOUNCES DEBUT ALBUM, ‘CONFIRM HUMANITY’

Tracks? He’s released a few (fifty or so). Music comps? He’s put a few of those together too.

BOBINA x CHRISTINA NOVELLI – SAVIOUR

Having last September ridden to the sun with the almost irresponsibly catchy ‘Mysterious Times’, Bobina & Christina have sensed the synergy and double-timed it back into the studio! Their follow-up is a fragile chillout number, which segues slowly into beatless… Nah, just kidding! It’s a heart-stealing, floor-thrilling, couldn’t-tie-it-down-if-you-tried outing, which will bounce you & your mates…
