Kobalt in the US has promoted Jamie Kinelski to Senior Vice President & Head Of West Coast Creative. “I’m so grateful for the opportunity I’ve had growing up as a publisher at Kobalt, the most dynamic and forward-thinking publishing company where the creator always comes first”, she says. “I’m excited to continue working closely with the creative team and our incredibly talented roster of songwriters and artists who inspire me daily through their music”.



The UK’s Music Venue Trust has announced that it will hold its annual Venues Day conference at St John At Hackney Church in London on 18 Oct. “It has become increasingly clear that after a tough couple of years there will be no return to the past, and it is now critical that new connections are made and that alternative ways of doing things are explored”, says COO Beverley Whitrick. “Venues Day 2022 is a fantastic opportunity to find out how people have adapted to such seismic change”.



Loski has released new freestyle ‘Obsessed’ – a response to Digga D’s ‘STFU’, which was released last week. “I’ve let others speak and thought it’s time I gave my version of events and had a little fun with it”, he says.

SBTRKT is back with new track ‘Miss The Days’, the first in a new series called ‘Ruff + Ready’.

Preoccupations have released new single ‘Death Of Melody’. The band’s new album, ‘Arrangements’, is out on 9 Sep.

Flohio has announced that she will release her debut album, ‘Out Of Heart’, on 7 Oct and has also released new single ‘SPF’. Talking about the sound of the LP, she says: “I’m bringing back the nostalgia of me in my living room playing games with my friends at age ten. Game soundtracks like ‘Final Fantasy’ and ‘Super Mario’. I wanted [’Out Of Heart’] to speak to my inner child and where it all started while bringing me back to now and who I am today”.



Both Jarvis Cocker and drummer Nick Banks have confirmed that Pulp will be reuniting for live shows next year – seemingly to mark the 25th anniversary of their 1998, ‘This Is Hardcore’. “Stay calm, hug your Pulp records and dream of going mental sometime in 2023”, says Banks. The band last performed together in 2013.
