UK Music Video Awards Announces 2017 Nominations

 

For all its problems, 2017 has truly been a great year for music in the UK and across the globe. As the UK Music Video Awards 2017 roll around again this October 26th, we’re reminded of some great music videos to come out this year.

Mercury prize winner Sampha receives four nominations this year and Mercury prize nominee Loyle Carner. Ray BLK, Dua Lipa, Charli XCX, Loyle Carner, Mura Masa and Rag n’ Bone Man also make some of the young British talents all in the running this October. Kendrick Lamar and alt-J tie for most nominations, both picking up seven.

What’s got us excited this year is to see younger artists appreciate in the same categories as some music veterans. Dua lipa and Charli XCX are in the running alongside Elton John for Best Pop Video while A$AP Mob and Young Thug go toes to toes with powerhouse and living legend, Jay Z for Best Urban Video – international

FAULT Weekly Playlist: cln

Australian producer cln is taking heartbreak and using it as an opportunity to make big changes. Musically, the end of a yearlong relationship caused him to take another look at songwriting and production – to switch gears if you will. It’s only fitting that his latest single is thus called “Switch Gears.”psuedo adds crisp verses and a melodic chorus over cln’s chilled out production with trap undertones.

This song release gave us the opportunity ask cln what he’s been listening to and inspiring him lately. Take a listen through his exclusive playlist for FAULT below.

Tyler, The Creator – Where This Flower Blooms

“Tyler’s new album is one of my favourite albums released this year. His music has matured significantly, and the whole album is really well done. The production in this song is super unique, and i love the Frank x Tyler combination.”

Sampha – Reverse Faults

“Sampha’s voice is incredible and I can’t stop listening to his recent album. I could pretty much list any song from the album here, but this one is my favourite. The snare drum in the drop is 10/10.”

Golden Vessel – Shoulders (ft. Elkkle + Mallrat) https://open.spotify.com/track/5GEDa0CNHxhGk0mn1gmcXX
“Golden Vessel is a good friend of mine, and this song is my favourite from him. The production is super lush and intricate + it’s combined with some really good songwriting.”

Frank Ocean – Godspeed

“Blonde is probably my favourite album of all time. I have listened to it constantly since it came out. A lot of people dismissed it because it’s not very poppy like Channel Orange, but i think anyone who has given it a few listens has fallen in love with it.

Again, I could list the whole album here. I’ve chosen Godspeed because i think it’s one of the more underrated songs on the album. The organ chord progression makes me melt.”

Tennyson – Like What

“This song is ridiculous. Possibly the coolest drop I have ever heard – when i listened to it for the first time it blew my mind. Their production is on a whole different level.”

Thundercat – Show You The Way

“Flying Lotus is one of the producers who I respect the most. When I found out he’d produced most of Thundercat’s album I was very excited. The whole album is really cool and unusual.
This song is my favourite, probably because of the Kenny Loggins + Michael McDonald features.”

A$AP MOB – RAF

“Any song that has A$AP Rocky and Frank Ocean is a winner in my book. Banger.”

Hiatus Kaiyote – Molasses

“This song came out in 2015 but I still can’t get over how complex it is. The amount of talent in this band is unreal.”

Montaigne – Consolation Prize

“Everyone loves a good ballad. Montaigne has an amazing voice and this song really shows it off well. Really beautiful stuff.”

SG Lewis – Yours

“SG Lewis is just a really good producer. He is good at keeping only the essential elements in his songs, he doesn’t overpopulate them with sounds. It’s really hard to do that well, and he does it perfectly.”
