December 19, 2014 | D&LBBC 1Xtra’s MistaJam’s Hot For 2015 list has been revealed!
Featuring the likes of Stormzy, Little Simz, Raury and Blonde, the chosen few on the list include the artist’s (who have been hand picked by 1Xtra DJ’s) who the team think will be big in the next 12 months, based on the quality music they have released to date.
Having started the list in 2006, the list has been credited for including big names of the upcoming artists to look out for, with the outcome at the end of each year, often being very close to the DJ’s predictions. Just to give you an idea of how close, Ella Eyre, Kwabs, MNEK and Sam Smith were all on the list for 2014.
“In recent years we’ve been so far ahead of the curve, other tipster lists are just catching up,” said MistaJam. “So if you want to know what people will be tipping in 2016, make sure you pay attention to our list for this year.”
Mila J, Bobby Schmurda, George The Poet, Krishane, LionBabe, Novelist, Protoje, Rag N Bone Man, Silvastone, Sinead Harnett and Zak Abel are also on 2015’s list and this week, special live lounge performances have taken place, with Little Simz, George The Poet, Zak, Bobby and Stormzy all taking part.
Here’s your last weekend anthem of 2014 with a 2015 artist to look out for; Mila J. Having featured on Trey Songz’ latest album Trigga and collaborated with the likes of Ty Dolla $ign, Problem and B.o.B, Mila is just getting started.
