B'day treats part 2

One day to go till our Sixth Birthday Party so here's a look at the main event. Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow. Sit back and watch these two incredible videos, starting with his new single Trumpalump, which has unbelievably all been created with paint, no effects.


And here’s the HD video for previous single Shapeshift, with vocals and production from Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard. The guy’s a genius and you can see him for free this Saturday at The Swan. Birthday parties don’t come better than that.

B'day treats part 1

The countdown is on to Uprock’s 6th birthday party, this Saturday at The Swan. As a special treat we’re bringing you two amazing live acts, Dels and Ed Sheeran.

We’ll start with Ed Sheeran – if you haven’t seen or heard him before then you seriously have to check out this video – more than 270,000 views, all done live and understandably winning Ed friends in high places.

It doesn't take a genius to see the guy is gonna be huge.

Too street for that

Nice post about our sixth birthday party over at the IP1 website

The hype starts here...

Last week I was down about the whole N.E.R.D, Daft Punk Let down. Things are a better this week, and I've been Helped along by the following:-

Bernard Sumner + Hot Chip + Hot City = I didn't know what love was. I heard this for the the first time earlier on this week. It's pretty old Skool. I also attached the new Ratatat for you to check out too.

Converse + Bernard Sumner = Bernard Sumner talking about the Manchester music scene. I can just imagine the guy from converse saying "Pipe down about the hacienda! We need a shot of you in the shoes!!"

Jeremy Messersmith + Eric Power = Tatooine (Star Wars was good wasn't it. But do we need it in 3D?)

Have a great weekend

Aloe Back

We posted Aloe Blacc's "I need a Dollar" a few months back. Here he is again taking on a MJ classic. It's sad but my favorite part of the video is the vintage (thats two uses of the word vintage this week) Sony microphone.
