ALBUM REVIEW: Netsky – ‘3’

Originally published on inthemeantime.me.uk When it comes to the drum and bass scene, the first artist that usually comes to mind for me is either Sigma or Netsky.

Album Review – “Lady Sings The Blues”, Rebecca Ferguson

For the last few years the UK has been a hotbed for heavy music, with numerous bands like Bring Me the Horizon, Asking Alexandria and Enter Shikari flying the flag on an international scale for a prosperous homegrown scene. Deserving to be mentioned in the same breath as those hugely … Continue reading
