Sound of 2012 artists
The BBC Sound list is an important feature for any rising star to be in. In previous years acts such as Jessie J; Ellie Goulding ; Adele and Corrine Bailey Rae went on to win it.
Today  list of the shortlisted 15 acts was revealed. The list of up and coming music star showcases the most exciting new acts around.
The list contains British soul acts; indie guitar bands; rappers; dubstep producers and more. 


  • A$AP Rocky
  • Azealia Banks
  • Dot Rotten
  • Dry The River
  • Flux Pavilion
  • Frank Ocean
  • Friends
  • Jamie N Commons
  • Lianne La Havas
  • Michael Kiwanuka
  • Niki & The Dove
  • Ren Harvieu
  • Skrillex
  • Spector
  • Stooshe

In my opinion the best by far of the acts listed is Frank Ocean. He is as R'n'B singer-songwriter who raps and has a lot of soul in his voice. This year he released the brilliant album 'Nostalgia/Ultra' for free download off his website. Through this he has already proven his amazing talent as a musician.

 For the BBC Sound of 2012, I'm backing Frank Ocean. Who are you backing? Let me know by leaving a comment or tweeting me @MWB709


  1. I'm with either Dry The River or Michael Kiwanuka, they're getting my votes :)

  2. Friends are insane, the bass-line in 'I'm His Girl' deserves an award
