Pete's Pop Picks

Ed Drewett - Good Morning
Many musicians make their mark by writing songs for other artists before they the go out on their own. Ed Drewett is one of those artists and you'll know one of his songs that has recently topped the charts around the world - The Wanted's Glad You Came! Yes he was the genius behind that track but has now decided to go out on his own. The result is is new single and video Good Morning that's an upbeat and happy track linked to a fun video which also shows a good insight into the recording studio. We're loving this track and we hope that this track does well. As a special bonus to you, if you register, you can download the track for FREE too!! Check out Pete's Pop Pick of the week,  Ed Drewett's Good Morning here..!

Carlos Jean - Fight For Life Feat. Lucia Scansetti
Spanish DJ Carlos Jean is stepping out from behind the booth and into the spotlight with his new single Fight For Life and he's brought along 19 year old Spanish singer Lucia Scansetti along for the ride. Carlos is quite well known in the Latin music scene with number one tracks and he's even worked with Shakira and earned several Latin Grammy nominations. His new track is less dance and more pop with Lucia's vocals working well and complementing the track well. The video we don't quite get - people walking through the forest till they meet at the lake.. hmm... just as well the songs good! Check out Fight For Life here now..!

Matisyahu - Sunshine
Matisyahu caused quite a stir in the Jewish Orthodox community recently when he shaved his long beard and cut and coloured his long hair that he was famous for. This Alt Rock/Rap/Reggae artist has long stayed true to the ideals of his faith but needed to 'reclaim himself' he announced recently on Twitter. We like his new look and it makes this 32 year old from Pennsylvania, born Matthew Miller, look much younger. We love his new track Sunshine too, which is more Pop/Reggae and is accompanied by a beautifully shot video filmed in a Bedouin Villiage in Tel Aviv, Israel. A song about finding your inner child it's a bit inspirational and full of beautiful musicality, we like the new look and new sound of Matisyahu a lot! Check out Sunshine here now..!
