It’s that time of year again! This issue is looking forward to 2018 and all the acts we’re keeping an eye on for big moves over the next 12 months. Don’t miss our double cover action either we’ve got Sigrid and Raye brightening up London this month.

The end of year issue is always one of our favourites, we sift through all the new acts that make our heart skip a beat and whittle it down to our favourite 15. See who made the cut inside. There’s also the small matter of our tracks of the year list, now that is a tough one, we keep track of our favourites in a master list all year long – on last count that list had no less than 150 tracks in it, so getting it down to our favourite 30 was not an easy task, this year was just so strong for so many different kinds of music, the quick paced 100M’s from Dave, the intensity of Aldous Harding, the journey that Clark takes you on, it all comes together in our top picks. Dive in!
