L Marshall, probably best known for featuring on Wretch 32's banger "Traktor," but now looks set to change-up his introduction to the listening hordes from writer (Loick Essien "This Is How We Roll" and collaborator to rapper/singer/performer as he power's outta the starting blocks for his own musical calling.

"Castles," though a little light on the melody side and not too testing for the lister, still seems to be sweeeet in intention - showcasing this undoubted talent just nicely. If it's catchy tunes you're after in the mould of said Essien, but with a Labyrinth kinda twist, then L Marshall is yer man! â¦and why not me thinks!! The mix of the two could be like some kinda musical super hero!

The single feature's the delicate/deliberate vocal of fellow B&S one to watch Little Nikki, who was up till recently one third of the now defunct pop act, Soundgirl. She too has solo success well in her sights and I for one wouldn't bet against either one making this their year! â¦so watch this space everyone ...or the skies even!!
