During this period Stanley has won awards, met the first lady of Cameroon, sang infront of thousands of spectators, broken records and travelled far to engage with his fans outside Cameroon.As preparations are being made for the official release of the follow up video for released track “Tumbuboss Deluxe”, the artist has teamed up with South Africa’s fastest rising rap act F.A.B in a remix which puts yet again the debut single on centre stage and gives Cameroon another boost as a contender in the African entertainment industry.

For those who have been on planet Mars these past months, “Hein Père” by Stanley Enow currently stands at over 410,000 views on youtube; a first and a huge record for a Cameroon based artist.

It has been well hyped and it’s merch was a huge trend.

FEW HOURS UNTIL NEW YEARS! I’m trying to get all my ‘Best of 2013’ posts out in time. It’s crazy. Okay, these are my Top 10 songs of 2013.

1. Lorde: Royals

It’s quite rare for one of the biggest and overplayed pop songs of the year to be so clever! Especially when the singer is only 17 years old. As soon as I first heard this tune I knew it was going to be song of the year. I loved the theme of the song and the minimal production was pretty much perfect. Most of the other songs on this list will be unfairly be forgotten in about 10 years time but I cant see it happening with this classic.

 

 

 

2. Arctic Monkeys – Do I Wanna Know

Love the tough mean sounding vibe of this song , the riff is massive!  Alex Turner has been the best lyricist in the world for the last 6 years and the way he phases his words is totaly interesting and unique


 

 

 

3. Miley Cyrus – We Can’t Stop.

I love the bridge part sooooooo much, in fact it might be my favourite music section of the year and I wish it was longer or repeated more before the chorus. A millions times better than “Wrecking Ball”.


 

 

 

4. Pusha T- Numbers on the Board

This  definitely gets the award for best beat/production. When it comes on in a club the mood just completely changes and it creates this mad voodoo spooky timeless atmosphere. Also Pusha’s album “My Name Is My Name” has been on rotation this year, one of my faves!


 

 

5. Anna Kendrick – Cups (Jellosea Remix)

And this gets the award for best remix of the year! The original was nice and catchy but Jellosea completely transform it into a really beautiful emotional piece of music that’s a million miles away from the original. It makes me wanna cry.


 

 

 

6. The Strokes – Tap Out

Contains two of my favourite melodies of 2013 but I can’t work out if I prefer the verse or the chorus? Beautiful falsetto vocals float over a bad ass groove and as always with The Strokes a kick ass guitar solo! There isn’t enough guitar solos in music these days.


 

 

7. Beyon – Grown Woman

Not the catchiest Beyonce single but it doest matter because the beat rocks!  African rythyms are the best thing ever and have been en vogue at the moment in the electronic music world and thanks to Beyonce theyare starting to make an impact in pop land. About time!!! The bass is very cool and anything with xlophones gets me excited. Iv only seen 30 seconds of the video but its enough to tell me its probably video of the year.

 

 

8. Ten Walls – Gotham

Definitely the most important  underground electronic record of the summer , every single DJ in Ibiza seemed to be including it in their sets. Similar to the Pusha T record, it just has this really simple spooky atmosphere about it which makes peoples ears prick up and then dance like they are in some weird forest in Brazil circa 1852 or maybe 2056??? Ha ha something like that but when you hear this destroy a club you will understand.


 

 

 

9. Haim- Falling

The Haim album “Days are Gone” is probably my favourite record of the year , every song is so strong it was hard to pick a favourite but this alongside Forever are probably the best. These girl rockers have that cool “retro sound from the future” vibe  and I’m a sucker for those Fleetwood Mac-esque harmonies.


 

 

 

10. AlunaGeorge – Attracting Flies

I love the 80’s and this has got a massive 80’s keyboard riff coupled with that classic 90’s female vocal. Very catchy but not in that annoying I’ll-be-sick-of-it-by-tomorrow kind of way and I love the little subtle synth rumble in the chorus.


 

 

 Did your favourite song make the cut? Let us know.

Have a fantastic New Year.
