As we came into the year the world faced a huge challenge, one like no other. Battling an invisible virus which bought the entire world to a standstill, trying to figure out how best to fight against this new killer virus.
However, amongst all the doom and gloom, to show how strong we are as people, that we are willing to move forward from this, artists from all over globe continued to write music & release it to the world. During a time where it was more important than ever before, simply because more people where listening and needed something to not only relate to, but unite with a community to support each other

This years review was very difficult to choose between as so many artists released extraordinary music this year, we'd like to congratulate and thank you all for working so hard and releasing music that everyone can connect to, helping us all through extremely difficult times throughout the year.
Even though our top artists reflects our favourites of the year, we'd like to say a big thank you to the artists that continually blow everyone away each year, here's to a new year filled to the brim with new amazing talents and awesome releases, of which we are very much looking forward to! Bring on 2021!
As the year comes to a close, a new chapter awaits in 2021. Although we are still fighting against this deadly virus, with vaccines & breakthrough discoveries being made, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. 2021 will be the year where we can hopefully bring this pandemic to an end, but to do so we must continue fighting together.
With this we hope to see the return of live performances and music venues being revived, as this industry has been hit hard and needs as much support as it possibly can once we're able to get back to holding live events. This includes supporting not just the bigger artists that we know & love today, but even your local bands, as without these artists we will struggle to get back to those concerts we love the most.
We wish you all a happy & safe new year, for next year will be like no other.
