Well it gives us very little pleasure to announce the 2016 Blog sound winner … why? Because it’s the sort of music, not only that we dislike, but the sort we actively avoid. The sort that leaves us feeling emptier than Jeremy Clarkson’s scrotum. Sorry folks, but that’s the truth. The winner is Mura Masa ( Alex Crossan) a 19 year old electronic producer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist originally from Guernsey. His tracks such as Firefly, Love For That andLovesick F*ck have all been hugely successful on blog aggregator Hype Machine and he has gained millions of plays on Soundcloud.
In many ways we feel the Blog Sound polls were an interesting experiment but have perhaps run their course and we may not participate again simly because it’s become apparent that our own tastes our not paticularly on trend and we find it a chore posting muisc we dont like. And so on this occasion we havent ! You can have a listen to the winner here if you feel so inclined
Thanks to Robin from Breaking More Waves for organising the list again.
