Killer Mike


Deezer has appointed Florence Lao as its General Counsel. “Deezer is leading the way for the future of the music industry and I’m looking forward to contributing to continued success, together with the talented teams in France and across the globe”, she says. “The music landscape is changing quickly, with Deezer playing a key role for its partners, the industry, and fans alike. It’s exciting to have joined the company at such a pivotal time”.

Sony Music has hired Omolola Ige as Marketing Manager for West Africa. “Joining Sony Music West Africa is a dream come true for me”, she says. “The company’s dedication to nurturing creativity and pushing boundaries aligns perfectly with my own passion for developing innovative marketing campaigns that resonate deeply with audiences”.



Flo Milli has announced that she will release new album ‘Fine Ho, Stay’ later this summer, and has put out its first single, ‘Fruit Loop’.

The Hives have released a new double A-side single, featuring new songs ‘Trapdoor Solution’ and ‘The Bomb’. Both are taken from new album ‘The Death Of Randy Fitzsimmons’, which is out on 11 Aug.

Ashnikko has released new single ‘Cheerleader’. “It’s twisting this perfect cheerleader into a monstrosity”, she says of the track. “It’s a commentary on the need to be fuckable to be commercially viable, and I really do feel that pressure. It’s so tiring and played out. No matter how much logic I’ve built up in my head, there’s still some carnal part of my brain that says ‘you have to be fuckable to sell this music, bitch!’ It’s draining on my spirit and makes me feel like I have literal car exhaust in my brain”. Her debut album ‘Weedkiller’ is out on 25 Aug.



Killer Mike has announced that he will play a one-off show at Lafayette in London on 31 Oct. Tickets go on sale on Friday.
