Let me begin by saying this, MIKE SKINNER IS A LEGEND! Now that The Streets journey has well and truly ended (for now), we all questioned what Mike Skinner would do next, well "continue to make music was the correct answer" and I'm very glad to be tuned into his new project along with Rob Harvey, formerly of The Music. Together, they're called The D.O.T and are making some pretty DOPE tunes, this one is called "Whatever It Takes" - a SMASHING tune and befitting dedication to the people that lost their lives at this year's Pukkelpop Festival.

Get over to their Soundcloud page to check out some of their other records.

iVideo... Keaton Henson - You Don't Know How Lucky You Are (The Mahogany Sessions)

First Zane Lowe plays his tune on his show on BBC Radio 1 and starts the revolution (dare I say), then Paul Lester gives him some shine over at The Guardian and then Fearne Cotton gives him another spin on BBC Radio 1 via her daytime show - pretty good for a shy singer/songwriter who hates performing in front of people! The performance phobia aside though, Keaton Henson is pretty AMAZING and his debut album Dear... - which will be re-released early 2012 - is pretty AMAZING too and immensely sad but in a good way

Now currently signed under management by the good people at ATC (Radiohead, Kate Nash, Dido), it's all about to change for Keaton Henson whose breakthrough single "You Don't Know How Lucky You Are" is set for release next Monday (October 24) via Motive Records! Check out a recent live acoustic performance of the single Henson did for The Mahogany Sessions... PRICELESS!

iMusic... Natalie Ferrol - Closer (All I Wanna Do) + Commit

Let me introduce you to emerging Essex R&B/Soul singer and songwriter Natalie Ferrol who recently released a 6-track EP titled Love Conquest: Recent Events. Of the six songs on the EP including a cover of Bilal's "All Matter", the songs titled "Closer (All I Wanna Do)" and are the ones that stick out for me the most - both are really beautiful pieces of work from the young singer who shows some really strong vocal abilities and songwriting skills with brilliant musical backdrops provided for by London-based producer Joe Copplestone - and I think you should check them out below...

I've been sitting on these songs for a good few weeks now and I'm pleased to be able to share them with you, if nothing else grabs your attention or your liking on Ferrol's EP, the two songs above should do more than the trick! The funny thing is that Natalie Ferrol could've easily been (and was) one of the few decent artists that unfortunately get drowned in our inbox if not for a chance second meeting with the burgeoning singer and songwriter
