By Dan Newman on 04/02/16 | Category - DJ Top Tens

Curly Dan Newman takes a look at ten bands/acts that we should all be keeping an eye on in 2016, 


1. I've been listening to KALI UCHIS loads recently. She was born in Columbia and raised in Virginia, USA and produces and writes her own music. It's a warm mix of old school reggae, hip hop and electronic soul that could be big in 2016 me thinks. 



 2. Another recent musical obsession has been rapper and soul singer ANDERSON.PAAK. He's been around for a while (he's on his 4th album) but is really coming through now. with the recent release of hos new album 'Malibu' he's poised for greatness. His music is a heady mix of Kendrick Lamarr, Chance the Rapper and Prince. 



3. HINDS have also been around for a while but the lo-fi lady duo are exposure for their lovely naive and ramshackle ditties. 



4. PRINCE RAMA are another trendy female duo from the US. Their music is rough and shonky with more of an arty hipster vibe. There's a freshness to their sound and look that could catapult them somewhere special this year. 



5. I've been a bit obsessed with SOPHIE's productions for a couple of years now. Closely aligned with the PC Music stable his productions are really out there, using bubbles, pops, Hoovers and sound effects in place of regular percussion and drum machines. I'd always assumed he was a faceless, ugly, beardy studio bloke but actually he's kind of pretty, rather androgynous and very trendy. His music is tuneful but cutting edge and deserves to be massive but I kind of hope it's not so I can keep it a 'secret'!




6. JIMI CHARLES MOODY. There's been so much groovy music coming from Australia recently you'd almost imagine it's a cold and rainy place where everyone stays indoors writing music. This old fashioned troubadour has a great soulful voice and rather good songs.


7. LADY LESHURR is a quick witted rapper from Solihull with some similarities to that other Brummie The Streets as she cheekily raps over rough demo beats. She's best know for her scathing 'Queen's Speech' series.




8. CLOVES. I like a good voice and folk goddess Cloves' voice is heaven-pure and classy. She's also another Aussie bringing it. 



9. SOFI TUKKER. Despite only realising two tracks so far, the guitar sex house of 'Drinkee' and the tuba led 'Matador', NYC based dance duo Sofi Tukker look set for big things. 'Drinkee' has already been used in an Apple Watch advert. 



10. JACK GARRATT. Generally deemed 'the one who will be massive in 2016' multi-instrumentalist Jack Garratt has been wooing punters and critics for a while now and momentum is growing. There are some similarities with much maligned ginger prince of the people, Ed Sheeran, with his ability to entertain large audiences playing solo with a few instruments and a loop pedal. he might not be super 'cool' but there's no doubt your gonna be hearing lots more about this fella.
