Their mixtape has been out a little less than 3 weeks and Migos already have the streets buzzing. With a co -sign from Gucci Mane these guys, who seemingly came out of nowhere, already have a few videos with a lot of views and even a remix with Drake. How long until they get a deal? // words: Joe O

UK artist JETTA recently dropped a new song and video for her song "Start A Riot". Largely under the radar at the moment, Jetta's new single sounds overwhelmingly promising and we're betting the entire world will know about her in due time. The production harkens an XX moodiness and groove, her voice reminiscent of Florence Welch. A potent combination sure to please the ears.
Los Angeles based, by way of Florida, artist Blackbear is hot property in 2012. Blackbear is the creation of Matt Musto and the songs he pens and produces are nothing short of genius. Aside from his Blackbear project, Musto has been busy lending his songwriting skills to Justin Bieber, Mike Posner, Ne-Yo, Rivers Cuomo (Weezer), Pharrell Williams, Nate Walka, Bei Maejor, Machine Gun Kelly.
Deap Vally hail from Los Angeles. They're a female duo riding heavily in the Rock n Roll carpool lane. Their overall sound harkens Mr. Airplane Man or The White Stripes. The primitive drumbeats, the sneering vocals reminiscent of Jennifer Herrema or Alison Mosshart. The recipe is fun. The look a bit dangerous. Black Leather coats - check, Fancy Haircuts - check, Late 60's chugging muscle - check, Great songwriting -check. Take a peek at their new music video "Gonna Make My Own Money" below
