“Nobody knows who I am, but most of the people in this country have heard me sing”
You may not recognise his face but this man is no stranger to success in the music industry! Sam Smith, up against the likes of Ella Eyre and Chlöe Howl awarded Critics Choice Brit Award and BBC Sound of 2014. This was not a surprise to us after hearing his beautifully haunting vocals. He gave Disclosure their first chart hit with Latch, he’s the voice behind Naughty Boy’s no.1 hit ‘la la la’ and was the supporting act to Emeli Sandé’s latest tour. This up and coming musician has released several superb solo singles, each showcasing his naturally born talent, faultless falsetto and tremendous technique. The 26th of May 2014 is the date set for the release of his first debut album: In the Lonely Hour, which can be pre-ordered from his website samsmithworld.com.
Here’s a sneaky peak of what it will be sounding like. Watch this space!
It has now been a week since the majority of us drank ourselves to oblivion, sang ‘Auld Lang Syne’ and finished off the left over turkey. While most of us partied, watched numerous firework displays or got overtly excited during the countdown for the New Year (as I always do), the time to go back to reality is finally upon us. The doom and gloom of January, the cold and grey feeling most of us experience, enhanced by our struggle to uphold our new years resolutions is something that makes January one long and continuous Monday.
Nevertheless, the team at SGDJ has been putting their knowledge to the test to hypothesize what were the most requested songs of 2013? The outcome might not be what everyone may expect but with many mobile DJ companies like ourselves, we cater for those who throw an outrageous MTV style SweetSixteenths, to making someone’s wedding day extra special and even 70th birthday parties. Therefore it could be the smash hit ‘Blurred Lines’ up against an old time classic (or rather golden oldie) like ‘Sweet Caroline’. Thanks to the DJ Event Planner song request system, a comprehensive list has been compiled, giving us the top 200 most requested songs of 2013 based on over 2 million song requests!
