New and Interesting: M.I.A.

New and Interesting artists is a section we’d like to dedicate to artists on the rise out there or in the under ground scene or maybe just someone who’s work stands and deserves a listen. I love to listen to music that’s developing, that plays around with all sorts of new sounds or mixes styles. That’s the fun thing about music: we all start out with the same notes but it’s truly incredible everything we can make with it.
Enjoy ! And if anyone has someone they’d like to recommend for review let me know in the comments.
