ARTIST OF THE WEEK: No.312 - Alex Gough

With a sound that takes production cues from Kaytranada and J Dilla, and a performance style like Yussef Dayes and Anderson .Paak, Irish newcomer Alex Gough is certainly making a bold impression as he delivers his new single 'PLASTIC (DBS)'.

Taken from his new mixtape 'Forever Classic', which arrives today, the young artist unveils a wonderfully smooth and genre-bending initial offering. Mixing a diverse array of instrumentation over the top of his own captivating vocal style, this new release looks to be the first of many groundbreaking cuts from the artist to come.

Speaking about the new single, he said, "PLASTIC (DBS) is a heart on sleeve, mind dump track amidst the others. I have a huge love for jazz and always wanted to explore that side of my music taste mixed with the songs I’m writing. It’s the most sincere song on forever classic, emotionally anyway."

His 'Forever Classic' mixtape is available to stream and download now, and you can check out 'PLASTIC (DBS)' in the player below.
