Ah, we spoil you. As if it wasn’t enough to have access to millions of tracks, our playlisted radio stations and top notch (ahem) editorial recommendations, we’re now giving you yet more treats.
You’re invited to watch a spectacular line-up of artists live next Tuesday to herald Deezer’s arrival in the UK. All from the comfort of your screen.
We’re hosting, or rather BBC 6 Music’s Matt Everitt is hosting, one hour of brilliant new music live from 19:00 GMT on Tuesday October 11. Watch it live here
Who is playing, we hear you ask? Let us introduce you.
Bright Light Bright Light
Bright Light Bright Light is Rod Thomas, a Welsh electro-pop musician has been winning fans ever since the release of his perfect debut single, Love Part II, on the Popjustice Hi-Fi label last year. Disco Moment, his second single is, according to The Sunday Times who recently featured him as a ‘Breaking Act’, “a song that confirms him as one of synth pop’s most compelling and exciting new talents, with a chorus that is both rapturous and devastating”. Hear it here on Deezer.
Housse De Racket
This Parisian duo started out as session musicians for Air and Phoenix and are signed to super-cool French label Kitsuné . They’ve recently released their second album, Alesia – “all brilliant, buoyant melodies like only the French know how to make them” says The Guardian. It’s a dazzling synth pop triumph, and no mistake. Listen to it here on Deezer.
Emeli’s first outings have all been top 10 hits. Featured spots on rapper Chipmunk’s debut single Diamond Rings and Wiley’s Never Be Your Woman (remember now?) both made her a known name before her debut solo single Heaven got to No2 this summer. The Scottish-born singer has also written songs for Cheryl Cole and fellow countrywoman Susan Boyle, but it’s her own classy brand of so-called ‘trip-pop’ that’s turning heads. Check it out here on Deezer.
Jordan and Harley are skilled purveyors of ‘Indie-hop’ (we’re not making these terms up ourselves). If you haven’t heard them rap over Jessie J’s Price Tag or Ed Sheeran’s You Need Me.. then it’s likely you’ve seen the pair grace Olly Murs’ single Heart Skips A Beat to power it to No1 earlier this year. If not (and if not, why not?) you’ll have heard their own blockbuster Down With The Trumpets, from their much-anticipated debut album Stereo Typical. This is Rizzle Kicks’ world, we’re just dancing in it. Listen to the boys here on Deezer.
