The Sun : Roll Deep Take Control With Alesha

THEY'VE already hit the top of the charts twice this year. So ROLL DEEP will be hoping for a third No1 with their new single Take Control. And Bizarre has the brilliant video for the song exclusively.

The grime crew have teamed up with garage star-turned-pop singer ALESHA DIXON and it makes for a great match up.
News of the lads working with the former MIS-TEEQ star was announced via Twitter with the crew asking fans to guess who they would be teaming up with.

Roll Deep member TARGET told me: "Everyone was thinking we were gonna be working with THE SATURDAYS after The Sun's story about us hanging out with them in Chinawhite.

"We already had the song recorded, we just needed to find somebody to vocal it. We thought a lot about who we were going to approach and Alesha seemed like a really good idea. We've known her since her Mis-Teeq days, and she was great to work with"

The slick new video sees them hanging out in an underground car park, speeding around on quads. And, of course, getting up close and personal with some hot ladies. The lads popped in to Sun HQ last week to record an exclusive acoustic session for Bizarre. You can check it out very soon, so make sure you stay tuned to my website.
Take Control is released on October 31 and the album Winner Stays On is out on November 8.

Example's Two Lives Video - The Sun Exclusive

"It's a hard life being a rapper. What with free booze, bras thrown onstage and groupies at the stage door.
But it all gets a little too much for EXAMPLE in new video Two Lives. Instead of getting a lift on the tour bus, the Kickstarts singer takes a time-out to walk home alone. The track, taken from album Won't Go Quietly, might be another infectious tune from the Brit rapper... but watch out for Elliot's "split personality". Two Lives is released November 14

Digital Spy : Duck Sauce is "deliriously catchy, endlessly danceable"

If you've come up with a club cut with chart crossover potential, and you're only going to slap two actual words over the instrumental, you may as well make those words the name of a superstar, right? And so Duck Sauce - a.k.a DJ duo A-Trak and Armand Van Helden - have titled this Boney M-sampling monster after the Oscar-winning, Grammy-grabbing, Tony-nabbing... OK, enough ego massage for now.

What's more, 'Barbra Streisand' actually kinda suits the track, a sassy, no-messin' disco-house dazzler which tips its trilby in the direction of Studio 54 circa 1979 - happily enough, just when Babs was having her own dancefloor moment with 'The Main Event' / 'Fight' and 'No More Tears (Enough Is Enough)'. Lack of lyrics notwithstanding, it's deliriously catchy, endlessly danceable and ultimately so uplifting that it could even cheer you up after watching the denouement of The Way We Were. Well, almost.

Talk To Angels "Enemies Closer"

Bradford's Talk To Angels release their new single "Enemies Closer" on the 18th October - a track ready to explode into your senses with neon fuzzy, synth-laden epic alt-pop, bursting with hooks, harmonies and hyperactive guitars.

Talk To Angels unite the coolest of indie kids, the scruffiest of metal-heads and the sassiest of pop princesses as one, and were invited to perform at last year's South by Southwest festival and undertook a debut tour of the US straight afterwards. The jaunt resulted in a dramatic conclusion after their last gig when one of the band met with a car running a red light, leaving him with serious injuries and a band stranded far from home. But a crushing alloy bumper would never be enough to keep these young troopers down for long...

Three quarters of Talk to Angels were born in Bradford 21 years ago. Craig Kaye (vocals/guitar) Chris Robbins (bass) and Jamie Lofthouse (drums) have known each other pretty much all their lives, forming the band at the tender age of 15.

A couple of years ago, they cleverly negotiated some free studio time with Mickey Dale the keyboard player from Embrace in return for clearing out his basement (you know the usual - lawnmower, Christmas decorations, car parts) so he could physically get a studio in there.

Mickey agreed to engineer new tracks from the three noiseniks. Mickey turned on the mixing desk, sat back and was promptly blown away by the sheer quality and velocity exploding from the speakers and announced right there he was joining the band!

Talk To Angels write vivid songs about guilt, pleasure and pain. Bittersweet laments about life, lost love and murderous intentions driven by incendiary passion. The lads deliver a sound that makes boys dance and girls weak at the knees.

"Enemies Closer" will be available to buy from 18th October.

Catch Talk To Angels LIVE at the following;
14th October : London Hope And Anchor
15th October : Leeds Elbow Room
13th November : Bradford Playhouse

Duck Sauce featured on Yahoo Homepage

"Already a hit in Australia, the impossibly catchy ‘Barbra Streisand' is set to be an absolute smash in the UK. Duck Sauce is a collaboration between DJs Armand Van Helden and A-Trak, and Radio 1 DJ Chris Moyles is leading the campaign to get them to number one. The all-star video features Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, Santigold and more. Boney M never sounded so cool."
