By Sadruddin Junejo / Tha-One.Music writer   I realise I may be a bit late to the party, but there are two good reasons as to why this review concerns the third (and first major-label) release from Vancouver-based musician Claire Boucher, better known under the alias Grimes.

Tha-Artist Article: Tech N9ne


By Shams Albadri / Tha-One.Music writer If you know Tech N9ne, you know he don’t shy away from scaring us.

Coloured Jeans!


By Olivia McLeod / Tha-One.Newness Writer I hope you like skinny jeans! Here’s my pick of gorgeous coloured versions and what’s more, they’re all in a sale!

Eco & Fairtrade Fashion

I’ve had a good search on the internet and it seems that unfortunately the market is not booming.  There simply aren’t enough designers taking fairtrade and sustainable fashion on-board (making prices high), […]


By Sadruddin Junejo / Tha-One.Music writer   I apologise in advance for any spelling or grammatical errors, as Michael Kiwanuka’s debut album, Home Again, has made me fall half-asleep. No, it’s not down to boredom, not at all! Rather, the London soul musician’s rough yet reassuring voice is such that one can’t help but want […]
