Tinchy Stryder is the biggest selling UK male artist of the year. With two number 1 singles, a certified gold album, a much-in-demand clothing line and a sold out headline tour under his belt, it is no surprise that he has been described as ‘Britain’s hottest new rapper’ (Guardian) who ‘has been instrumental in turning British Urban music from a minority interest into a commercially successful mainstream scene’ (The Times).
2009 is the 50th anniversary of the founding of Island Records, arguably the most prestigious record label in the history of British music. To mark this milestone the label is collaborating with Island founder Chris Blackwell to arrange the Island 50 festival.
Following the success of Truth & Soul's remix of the Amy Winehouse track "Love Is A Losing Game", Truth & Soul are at it again, this time remixing a track from Australian singer-songwriter Gabriella Cilmi, who is currently touring the UK with the Sugababes.
Say what you will about her, Amy Winehouse's newest single, "Love Is a Losing Game" is one of those classics that will be copied for years to come. To mix things up a bit, Truth & Soul Records has created a remix of the song that effortlessly blends Winehouse's distinct vocals with a super smooth accompaniment that includes a far more driving beat than the original.
