WITH "GRACE"
1/14/19

London-bred, Irish singer/songwriter and rapper Michael Stafford (aka Maverick Sabre) dropped his powerful and poignantly stirring new track “Her Grace,” which features Chronixx, on 12/7, closing out the year with a music video—directed by Shaun Grace—and the promise of new music in 2019. The second single off the Mercury/UMG artist’s forthcoming album, “Her Grace,” touches on domestic abuse.

The full-length project, When I Wake Up, is expected to drop in March and includes features from Grammy-nominated artists Jorja Smith and Chronixx. Seven years after his debut album, Lonely Are The Brave, dropped in 2012 and rose to #2 on the U.K. album charts, Sabre—currently repped by Evergreen Artists Management—has truly evolved into a multifaceted artist. Although he’s not currently touring the U.S., you catch him in the U.K. and Ireland; dates can be found here.

A NOD TO AXMOD
12/17/18

Paris-based electronic DJ/producer Axmod recently hit our radar with his newest single, “Walk Away.” Pulling from influencers such as Breakbot and Daft Punk, Axmod is channeling disco roots.

Honing his own unique style, “Walk Away” is a shift in direction for Axmod, given his background in classical piano.  “I really wanted to take it back to the clubs and dance-floors for this track as homage to the DJs and culture that inspired me when I was growing up,” Axmod says.
