Last Flowers Single Release
Why I built Chartburst…
As a DJ, Producer and part-time promoter, I’ve always known that music is what I wanted to spend all my waking hours doing!
Getting signed was something that I never thought about properly until I took music seriously enough to try and get my music out there. As soon as I did I realised that it may well turn into a seriously boring and soul destroying process of knockbacks, ignored emails and dead-ends. This horrible realisation and the fact that I’ve been involved with the running of a residential recording studio for 15 years where I’ve seen countless talented artists come and go, never to hear from them again made me think long and hard about what is still a serious problem…
Chartburst Unsigned Track Focus
Artist: Priit A
Taken from the previous Dance chart, ‘Nature’ is a wonderful piece of ambient electronica from Estonian producer Priit A. The layers of echoing synth’s and soft percussion are reminiscent of 80’s pop and combine beautifully with the passionate vocal, gradually building atmosphere, before a warm bassline is added creating clever contrast for the finale.
Chartburst Unsigned Track Focus: Archetype
Lovely piece of dubstep tinged electronica from Archetype. The clean percussion combines with the understated compressed bassline to set a laid back tempo, whilst the atmospheric melody blends in perfectly with ambient synth lines allowing the passionate female vocals to take precedence. Intelligently produced, the subtle use of layering allows the track to remain simple yet emotive simultaneously.

Chartburst Unsigned Track Focus: Hiphop Chart
Track: Give It Up
Taken from the current hip hop chart, ‘Give it up’ is a creative piece of RnB tinged Hip Hop from young Arkansas duo M.O.B.I.L.E.
Their offbeat rap flows perfectly over the steady percussion and synth melody, which contrasts perfectly with the melodic guitar and soulful vocal of the chorus. Refreshingly positive, this innovative duo avoid the usual materialistic topics favoured by many modern rappers, focusing instead on honest, thought provoking lyrics, an outlook which makes them both unique and relevant.

Chartburst Unsigned Track Focus: Dance Chart
Track: Early Love
Nice experimental track taken from the current dance chart. The sound is built up by adding layers of ambient melody and unique textures which combine with energetic percussion and a passionate vocal to create an atmospheric conclusion. ‘Early Love’ is both unconventional and expressive and bridges the gap between acoustic and electronic music, utilizing elements from both styles.

Classic Plastic are a Brighton-based indie/britpop quartet who draw similarities to Blur, Pulp, and The Smiths. They finished at number two in our Indie chart on the first week Chartburst launched. Since then they have received airplay from Tom Robinson on BBC 6 music, John Kennedy on XFM, Toby Lynn on Amazing Radio, and Christian Allen on This is Fake DIY radio. Their video for their radio hit and Chartburst favourite, Bucket & Spade Escapade, was also released.
They have been gigging the small venue circuit in Brighton and around Shadwell and Hackney, and New Cross in London but are about to play Scala with Bloc Party (DJ set) and Everything Everything (DJ set)!
