New Voice

We have a new totally fresh voice coming to urbanradio in the next couple of weeks...
Check back, we're all really excited about this.

New imaging for a host of stations this month, there seems to be some great music about at the moment to use too.

Our favourite at the moment is the new single from Anastacia "I can feel you " , we LOVE the Full Phatt remix cos it samples Chaka Khan , I feel for you... ha ha wicked !

Blog blah!!

This blogging is harder than I thought, actually coming up with content is easy putting it down on here is the tricky part...mmmmnnn

Have been doing a lot of work for our American friends this week, there seems to be a growing dance radio trend in the States, interesting seeing as the major players in the early days were all Americans. However, it's still fairly niche with many stations who originally adopted a hybrid of hip hop/dance/r n b have now completely flipped urban. The hip hop fans don't like dance and the dance fans don't dig rap. Radio friendly dance can sound shit make no mistake, the burn out on Cahill "Trippin on you " is a good example as is "Pjanoo", tiresome after a couple of plays.

At least with the resurgence of Bassline we are getting proper some songs too...

Blog Blog Blog !!!!

Blogging is hard work !!! I've been told it's all about showing yourself and making your website feel more personal etc, well f**k that I have been too busy !

Just finished producing a high energy package for a Greek station and supplied VOs for an Italian dance show, so we are truly global!

If you want to hear the bits get back to me.

Finally, I almost electrocuted myself last week, find out how... after the break...

That dancing on Britain got talent

I'm of course talking about the amazing routine with the mash up of Billie Jean/Ice Ice baby and some Desi Beats, can't stop watching it on Youtube

Talking of Desi Beats we are just about to produce a very cool new package featuring Dan Lee the voice of Galaxy, he's a massive talent and a nice bloke !

Also this month we produced two new Spanish packages, a really interesting new Underground station is coming to the Costa Del Sol so on your holiday tune to 106.4 FM Lick !

It's in the mix!

The best breakbeat I've heard in years , new, that is comes from Kenna. 

The track is called out of control (state of emotion)

A great track to talk all over too !

I mixed it with old school samples for a great hour opener, email me to hear the demo.

American Gangster

What a great movie, took me 3 days to watch it...long story ha ha !!

I rarely buy DVDs but this is worth the dosh, great story , awesome acting , inspired Jay Z to record an album too so that's all good .

I might lift some choice lines of it later...

Good Friday !

Ha Ha,yeah it's good but the wheels of steel are still turning for most of us.

Expect Sunday to be heaving if you're playing out, and a quiet Saturday night.

I've noticed some of the big UK G stations are now just broadcasting on the internet rather than as Pirates on FM, the way forward indeed with fast internet access everywhere. Also as it's MP3 the quality is so much better than DAB, a dead duck pretty much since GCAP have pulled out.

New York is now totally enabled with wireless broadband in every single square yard, so it won't be long before we see Car Radios that enable us to pick up internet streams.

Anyway anorak off back to the desk..

New look site !

Would you believe the first edition of the current site went live in December 02 , Yeah it's 5
years old !! Although we've refreshed it a few times the main bulk of the site has stayed the same. At this point I must say a massive thanks to James at cookiedude the web designer, he delivered a site that was WAY ahead of it's time, and still now when I look at other sites I know that urbanradio is the best out there!

Jingles, new sweepers, new music demos all online now, plus our BIG US Voiceover, get some fresh stuff today !
