Maverick Sabre - SB.TV A64

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, there's something special going on in the UK right now. The amount of exceptional talent around at the moment is pretty remarkable. This 09/10 crop of vocalists, songwriters, producers and, to a lesser extent, MCs is like nothing we've really ever seen before.

People can talk about the Soul II Soul era but these days the likes of Bluey Robinson, Ed Sheeran, Maverick Sabre, Labrinth, Devlin, Katy B, Ghetts, Maxsta... the list could go on, but my point is these artists are no longer the exception, they're pretty much the rule. Admittedly, there's still a lot of crap out there and there's a whole lot of guys making electro-pop nonsense, but I honestly can't remember a time when so many prodigious talents have been buzzing simultaneously.
