A week that delivered snowmageddon, it was definitely music that came out on top as we sat indoors and kept warm. The 2017 Brit nominations were supported by a number of highly anticipated albums and a cryptic video message that can only mean one thing. Daft Punk are Alive 2017 Daft Punk, possibly the most elusive duo in music history have never shied from a conspiracy or two. For decades, fans of electronic music's favourite children have been plagued by teases of a tour and in 2017, ten years after their last performance, those fires are well and truly stoked. Earlier in the week, a 51-second video appeared on a random YouTube channel with the title 'ALIVE' and reignited those rumours thanks to a familiar looking neon shape.

When 2014 Forest Hills Drive released the critics went crazy over a young rapper from Carolina who took influences from both the East & West Coasts. Boasting a mentor in none other than Jay-Z, Cole spoke fondly of the influences that the likes of Tupac, Biggie Smalls, Snoop Dogg and Eminem had on his style and with inspiration like that - who needs features?
