Established Essex born artist / composer / guitarist 'Ricky On Guitar', and London rapper ShaoDow have teamed up to release new single 'The Rise'. The concept of the song itself is inspired by the unspoken fears and emotions most young men feel before having children and becoming a father. In a time when 'babies' are having babies The Rise stops to ask... am I ready? - before jumping into bed.

French-born and London-bred, The Spectre has been making hip hop music since he was 14. A prominent lyricist, and the producer of most of his beats, he grew up on bands like Eminem and Wu-Tang, wordsmiths who recognised the importance of lyricism in their raps. The Spectre isn't about guns and drive-bys, but rather introspection, relationships and domestic hardships. Who said hip-hop had to be all "bling bling" anyway?
Savvy aka Asaviour has a new single which he has released called "What We Really Need" and it features both Savvy's band - The Savoir-Faire and the Lindley Infant School Choir, a local school from his home town. Its the result of a community based project Savvy delivered with the Social enterprise arm of his label Saving Grace Music.
