“Nugget were formed in London in late 2013 by three virtuoso players, all strikingly young despite their experience, who create an idiosyncratic collage of original jazz-fusion and thrilling math-rock… Nugget are prodigious Toronto-born guitarist and producer Julien Baraness, a graduate of Boston’s famed Berklee College of Music; Italian bass instructor Alex Lofoco, who studied at the London Tech; and fellow alumnus, drummer Jamie Murray.”

Folk pop singer-songwriter, loop station addict and odd socks enthusiast. His work has received critical acclaim from the likes of Ultimate Guitar. He conquers the intricate layering of loops on a live stage that would put many to shame. He’s a regular performer at Discovery events, Liverpool Sound City and Kendall Calling. His new EP is produced by Ciaron Bell.
“A beautiful song and a wonderful melody.” – Sir Paul McCartney
“A great voice and a great understanding for melody.” – Billy Ocean
“His ability to command the room was nothing short of remarkable…” – Bido Lito Magazine

“Well Tread Roads” warms you up, holds you close and makes you feel richer for having encountered it. Each of the 10 songs cradled in the lyrics and melodies so thoughtfully written and steadfastly felt. This album haunts you with the echoes and essence of Neil Young & David Gray whilst inspiring your heart to surrender all its questions and find its own way home.” – FRESH INDEPENDENCE

Now 19, Cara has just released Afraid Of The Dark – her second EP to much critical acclaim including being named in the Top 15 EPs of 2014 by Rave Child.
“Check her voice. There’s something a little bit Bjorky about that. That was not like one of those people that go on TV talent shows and sound like everyone else. She has a totally unique voice and thats the kind of thing we like to promote on BBC Introducing.” – Ally McCrae – BBC Introducing – BBC Radio One
“With such soft, lush tones to her voice, Cara could probably sing the phonebook and have lots of success. It is an added bonus that she is such an accomplished songwriter.” – For Folks Sake

This one to celebrate the passing of winter 2014… Also ramblings on about Detroit Tigers opening day (April 6th!!!), Trent and Nick are learning bass and guitar, and I replay Trent’s “naked crayon” song from almost 10 years ago… OH, and I have a voicemail line: 206-278-1463

They mix ‘synthy’ electronica with quirky British vocals and catchy guitar lines with resounding drum and bass to create a new, urban/indie-dance sound. They’ve been described as “like a burger with layers of synths, bass, guitars, and garnishes of cutesy, shrill vocals”
With infectious and energising performances and the explosive chemistry between the three girls, they have captivated audiences and transformed bystanders into fans in very little time. They’ve playing at venues s ‘The Garage’ in Islington and the Islington 02 Academy. They have been working with Producer Spider. L. Johnson (Tinie Tempah, Stevie Wonder and Kylie Minogue.)Elektric
Hailing from the Midlands, 22 year old Elektric fuses old school Hip Hop and RnB with electronica backed up with an accessible singer, songwriter style.

She uses her Music to express what its like to be a young, gay, female artist in 21st century Britain. Taking influences from all genres of music from reggae, soul and hip hop, to pop rock, indie and most importantly her life.
Currently signed to producer baby J, who has produced for Amy Winehouse, Estelle, Skinnyman, Dead Prez , Alex Blood, Jamie Joseph. Songs from her Ep ‘Not Another Love Song’ are receiving airplay on BBC Introducing & 1 Xtra
A bubbly, bright singer songwriter from South London who writes punchy, punky, bouncy rock pop songs that get you on your feet and moving. A colourful clash of genres incorporating everything from rock and soul to ska and folk. Scratch the surface though and lyrically her tough upbringing and life experiences can be felt too.

Longtime CCMixter user Ashwan, originally from Liverpool, says he recently was “seduced by fellow CCMixter Ditto Ditto’s remix of Snowflakes ‘The Light'” when he put together today’s featured Daily Dose track. Conjoined with this epiphany in track creation, he says that he was also “inspired by the anniversary of the Berlin wall coming down recently and how that can function as a metaphor for the groundbreaking work that everyone involved in the music site ccmixter is doing.”
In addition to mixing the music you are hearing here today, Ashwan is a visual and multimedia artist with works in private and corporate collections worldwide. The sample here that accompanies the track is entitled ‘Electric Relaxation’ and you can find much more on his artist website below.
