Ditto Music Artists Staff Picks (5th March)
March 5, 2012
Welcome to the newest feature of the Ditto Music Blog, where we show you the artists who have been rattling around our office stereo this week.
Manchester based producer Star Slinger has been with Ditto Music since ‘Volume 1’ dropped in 2010. He has featured in The Guardian’s ‘New Band of The Day’ series, as well as being tipped by the notoriously hard to please Pitchfork’s as their one to watch. His single Dumbin’ received a positive review in NME, whilst his latest ‘Jet Jam’ mixtape was covered and acclaimed throughout the British and US music press.

Sam Airey is a singer songwriter based in Leeds, with new EP ‘A Marker & A Map’ out through Ditto Music on the 26th March. Sam has been selected by Lauren Laverne for BB6 Music’s MPFree this week alongside the likes of White Rabbit’s and Willy Mason and we highly suggest you go and get it.

Fitz. Is the moniker of Tamworth folk Singer Sam Fitzpatrick, whose latest single ‘Maps’ has been rattling around the office stereo all week. Fitz. combines imagery of the English countryside with Banjo lead accompaniments in the same way as Mumford and Sons and Frank Turner. ‘Maps’ is available to buy through Ditto Music now, with plenty more Demos available to stream on his Facebook page.

Amplify Dot is part of a new wave of female MC's making a lot of noise in the UK urban scene. Already collaborating with a number of established artists, her single ‘Rock The Mic’ featured the likes of Baby Blue, Lioness, RoxXxan, Mz Bratt and Lady Leshurr. As well as working on her own music she also runs her own label Amped Up Entertainment, which has just released Ice Kid’s hugely anticipated EP ‘Jekyll & Hyde’ alongside her own material.
