2011, is fast approaching and on a personal note I am glad to see the back of 2010 but what can we expect in 2011?
A Wiley/Dizzee Rascal collabo?
Didier Drogba with a skinhead?
What Drogba usually looks like.
More jobs for the unemployed?
What do you guys think? Feel free to leave a comment.
P.S Arsenal winning the league would be nice!

TOTR fav's Fuzzy Logic have released their debut E.P "Goodtimesdotcometh".
Boasting six tracks there is something for everyone on this E.P and trust me when I say there are some absolute gems. There is even a feature from the talented Roses Gabor.
Personal fav's: Armhouse and Drunk mans speech.
To get your dirty mitts on the E.P you can download it here from iTunes, also to keep up with the bands shenanigans follow them on Twitter @FuzzyLogic_Baby.
Go on treat your ears!

East London is definitely back with this youngster and don't you forget the name Maxsta. After a fairly successful year and also releasing two mix tapes the 'Maxtape' and 'The Come Up' this busy young lad has firmly cemented his credentials as the next big thing. Think Maxsta and the comparisons of a young Dizzee are not far behind. Look out for him!
J Cole the rapper not the footballer has been around for a little minute, patiently biding his time whilst wetting our pallet with his mix tapes. Yet to release his debut album "Cole World" (dropping in December) J Cole the first artist to be signed to Roc Nation has been teasing us with a variety of mix tapes. Most recent one being "Friday nights lights" , evidently talented and with a lot to say I have no doubt that J Cole will be taking his place among raps elite in no time soon.
Jessie J is the lady of the moment, everyone and their cat has been banging on about this young lady and it's justified. Signed to Island Records Jessie J released the visuals to her first single "Like a dude" and in under a week has already reached 2million views. People watch this space 2011 will be Jessie J's year.
Mac Miller, a 19 year old rapper Hailing from “The Burgh” Pittsburgh USA has been making some serious strides over the pond, currently signed to Rostrum Records he recently released his latest mix tape K.I.D.S (Kicking Incredibly Dope Shit). After a great response he plans to release another mix tape Best Day Ever in December, look out for the debut album dropping in 2011!
The singer-songwriter from Suffollk is on the verge of big things, signed to Elton John's management and appearing on Jamie Foxx's radio show in California. It seems like Ed is well on his way, always with his trusted guitar Ed Sheeran has played and continues to play at a host of gigs and none other than our night TOTR in December (make sure you're there). Keep tabs on Ed Sheeran, I don't want to say I told you so.
New music and footage of Adele recording her next album entitled '21' which is due for release in Jan 2011 on XL recordings.
It's been a while since we've heard anything new from the Grammy award winner and to be honest it's been long overdue. I think the music "scene" on a whole has missed her, I am thoroughly excited about her pending new material.
What are your thoughts on the track "rolling in the deep"?

This is by far the best track on Pro Green's album and to be fair he does his bit but to be honest Maverick Sabre owns this.
Produced by True Tiger go support the cause and help it chart, cop it on iTunes now.
Okay, so I’ve been having a little fun over the past week making this video (track inspired by Duck Sauce).
Most of the footage are random bits filmed over the year, all the photos are from past TOTR events. The video was fun to make and I hope that comes across to you when you watch it.
Thank you to all who wanted to appear in it and I hope you enjoy it. Please share with friends and comments are welcome.
We have a Christmas Party to announce so look out for the details to be posted pretty soon.Edit

I am not going to say too much about this video because when you watch it, it will speak for itself.
"What it means" is very intense, engaging and appropriate, please enjoy and share with your friends.
Massive shout out to G.R.E.E.D.s and The whole PinBoard team you did an amazing job.

Myspace has undergone a massive redesign, but will it make a difference. Back in the day Myspace was the "social network of social networks" (Facebook and Twitter were no where to be seen). Now Myspace is a social grave yard full of dead profiles with Facebook and Twitter now ruling the roost.
I remember a time when logging into Myspace and having millions (slight exaggeration) of strangers friend requesting me, pretending they were earning £250,000 + a year. There would also be a thousand and one profiles of "emo" girls taking photos of themselves poking their tongues out.
Now when I log into Myspace I have a million spam emails (no exaggeration), a thousand event invites and one friend request from a latino model (who's not a real person) claiming to be looking for friendship, has just moved to London and has no friends.
The new Myspace is aimed at musicians and promoters:
"The new feautures (not released in the UK until mid November) will make it easier for users to share and promote content they enjoy and recommend it to their friends. This means users can finally promote themselves or their company within MySpace instead of directing people to their profile page".
This is a clear indication Myspace will not be competing with Facebook and looks like it is going back to it's musical roots.
Well time will tell if Myspace will ever regain it's "top social network" title, but I a now occasional Myspace user rather than avid is not sure. However, I will be giving it a try.
