Karma Kid releases new track with Aminé

Sam Knowles AKA Karma Kid is a 21 year old Brit electronic dance music record producer and DJ.

I had the chance to hang out and meet Karma Kid a few months ago in Mexico when he came to DJ at a festival in Morelos.

This might sound cringe, but, apart from Sam being a really talented, passionate and hard worker, he’s really sweet and deep.

Love meeting people like that!

Check out his latest track called Thru The Tundra ft. Aminé, here!

Best Brit Pop songs of the 90s – Day 6 (Oasis)

Coming from Manchester, the question Oasis or Blur wasn’t really asked.

Even though I am a huge Blur fan, love Damon Albarn and Graham Coxon, Oasis is what defines my upbringing in Manchester, England.

Even though the Gallagher brothers and I support different teams (they’re blues and I’m reds), when it comes down to music, we’re on the same page.

Wonderwall, was on Oasis’ second studio album (What’s The Story) Morning Glory? which was released in October 1995. Cliche or not, this song is a must on EVERY Brit list there is!

This album is one of the best albums to exist of our generation – well, mine at least! Songs such as Don’t Look Back In Anger, Hello, She’s Electric, Roll With It and Champagne Supernova sum up this album.

When you have a chance, have a listen to the whole album, from beginning to end, you won’t regret it!

Oasis – Wonderwall

Best Brit Pop songs of the 90s – Day 5 (Suede)

Suede are en English alternative rock band from London.

The Drowners is Suede’s debut single and is on their first album called Suede. The song was released in 1992 and according to journalist John Harris, “[I]f Britpop started anywhere, it was the deluge of acclaim that greeted Suede’s first records: all of them audacious, successful and very, very British.”

Sorry for repeating the word Suede so much…. It sounds so… Delicate.

Best Brit Pop songs of the 90s – Day 4 (Pulp)

Don’t think I forgot the 90s National Anthem, Common People!

All of us know, sang, dedicated it, never really understood it until we got to our late teens… But still, we love it!

Common People is by a famous English band called Pulp (Jarvis Cocker <3). The song was on the bands famous 1995 album Different Class.

Pulp was formed in 1978 in Sheffield, England. I personally have a connection with Sheffield… I use to go visit there every now and then with my family, and it’s where I saw Michael Jackson in concert.

Anyways, they were hugeeeeeee and still are praised till this very day. They were active from 78 – 2002 and took a break for a few years and were back on the road from 2011 – 2013.

I got the opportunity to see them play in Mexico City, and it was a blast from the past… Listening to the band play Common People, Do You Remember The First Time, Disco 2000, Like A Friend amongst many others is something that I’ll keep in my memory box section in my brain forever.

Best Brit Pop songs of the 90s – Day 3 (Space)

Day 3 of my fave best brit pop songs of the 90’s is…. Female of the Species.

Space formed in Liverpool in 1993. Tommy, Jamie and Andy aimed for a Who influenced sound. But my fondest memory of the Liverpudlian boys is their hit track Female of the Species.

This song will bring back many memories!

Space – Female of the Species
