It’s been an eventful past year at M.I.S.S. and we’re happy to share it with all of you lovely readers out there. At the beginning of 2009, we shared with you just how music-savvy our writing staff is and started fresh with new music columns in addition to We Got The Beat called M.I.S.S. in the Mix, Fashion Meets Music, Reminisce with M.I.S.S., and Funky Expeditions.
But I’m happiest to say that we introduced some of the new talent to you first, giving you more than just a DL link (support your artists!)and and a few good words.
At the top of the year, we introduced you to The Noisettes, a soulful, bluesy, afro-punk band fronted by the fashionable Shingai Shoniwa.
Then along came Little Dragon, who’s ethereal and ambient music captured our interests and softened the hardest of hearts.
Then came Lyyke Li, who’s angelic voice got one of the biggest mainstream shout outs when another Breakout Artist of 2009, Drake, imposed a duet of her song “A Little Bit” on his “So Far Gone” Mixtape.
After that, we were on a roll with Rye Rye, Janelle Monae, Lilofee, Hudson Mohawke, Melanie Fiona, Nola Darling, Miss Banks, Kissey Asplund, Chairlift, MoneyPenny, Thecocknbullkid, Maluca, Adiam Dymott, Jemina Pearl, and ending the year off with 4AM DJs.
What’s in store for 2010? Hopefully another groundbreaking year for artists who push the boundaries in every way imaginable AND a place for them to be supported over here at M.I.S.S. So go ahead and use your new giftcards to support and if you have any tips on who’s the latest amazing artist on the scene, feel free to hit us up! We’re ushering in another New Year of Artists right here at M.I.S.S. Headquarters.
