Filtering a crate-digging knowledge of classic sounds through life growing up in South London, Love Ssega is a bright young talent sticking to his singular path.
Some may recognise the name after Love Ssega lent his vocal skills to the Clean Bandit hit “Mozart’s House” which he wrote and co-produced. He was a founding member of the band and subsequently performed with them live on Jools Holland to the Other Stage, Glastonbury in front of 45,000 people. He’s now striking out as a solo artist with his full live band.
Filtering a crate-digging knowledge of classic sounds through life growing up in South London, Love Ssega is a bright young talent sticking to his singular path. Channelling a vibrant mix of New Wave, 80s hip-hop and NYC disco into smart modern pop, Love Ssega draws on an evocative point in sound and culture far removed from the London borough of Lewisham where he was raised.
He has a keen eye for colour and visuals and on stage can be found wearing shirts custom tailored by his sister out in Kampala, Uganda, where his family originates. The creativity all bleeds into the music. Never to be constrained, his musical experiences, are as wide-ranging as his life story so far - both unexpected and undefinable. He has has two different tracks performed by the 70-piece BBC Symphony Orchestra and also the BBC Concert Orchestra at Earls Court.
Unsigned and unapologetic Oslo singer Fanny Andersen (21) self-released her catchy single “KIDS” produced by pop duo Skinny Days in November. Who needs a label or a manager when you´ve got guts, talent and great friends? Fanny´s music is perfect for fans of pop stars like Zara Larsson & Katy Perry. And yeah, she signed with a management shortly after releasing “KIDS”.
“KIDS”, a fresh sounding dance pop track that manages to combine an abashed sense of fun, with a detached sense of nonchalance. And all via bass driven beat that sounds just as home on the radio as it clearly will on dance floors.
