If you are a fan of classic 90's Britpop (like I am) then you should like Kassassin Street. Taking a little bit of Kula Shaker and mixing in some Blur and Interpol, they've created some really energetic and exciting sounds.

Molina is back!
When I first heard Molina, a year or so ago, he was just a kid making some remixes and just trying to get his name out there.
With this release, "We are free", he has done just that. This track cements his status as a force to be reckoned with and a name that is synonymous with quality and talent.
Expect big things from Molina over the next few years. He's gonna be everywhere.
