The Simonsound Live In The Studio

Joining the musical dots - soul, hip-hop, house, Afro, Latin, dubstep, jazz and beyond.

Check out three tracks from their amazing Maida Vale session, including an exclusive Simonsound medley!

Loads of cool new music including a new Hessle Audio artist called Joe, Janelle Monae, British-born singer Charlie Winston and a banging Mosca remix of Four Tet's Sing.
