Urban Development in association with Puma present One's To Watch 2012. Having spent many an hour sifting through demo's, label recommendations and our social networking tip offs, we hereby declare these are the acts that will be popping off this year. Look, listen and learn...
Charlie, Topher and Loz make up this very exclusive club. Naming themselves after the road they built their studio on in west London, this trio are leading the way with a “new wave of guitar led aural pleasure”. Word. Even though they’re yet to release a single, you may recognise these guys – a favourite of SB.TV’s Jamal Edwards, they’ve recently hosted a number of Jam Sessions, providing the backing track for Wretch 32 and Etta Bond, Lowkey and Yasmin.
Due to release their debut single ‘Light Me Up’ in April, with such an infectious sound it’s no wonder the boys were snapped up by Gary Barlow’s label Future Records, an imprint of Universal Records, last year.
Currently putting the finishing touches to their debut album, the group have dropped some new clips on their Soundcloud to wet the appetite of their Hulagans and Hulagirls (aka their fans). Their fusion of disco funk, rock, soul and a little bit of 90’s Brit Pop brings a refreshing sound to the airwaves. Keep your eyes and ears open for this trio as well as Charlie’s club night Cola Wine, purveyors of all things dancehall, roots and bashment in west London.
