That’s right y’all the clocks moved forward on sunday night and you had better believe it was hard to get up this morning!
But BST is the best time of year, the sun is out longer, the sky is brighter and damnit people are just happier! Fingers crossed we get a good summer this year, otherwise we just might have to consider emigrating!
Get your sunshine on, look out the Windowpane

We don’t like this here at PinBoard.
During an interview with The Guardian, Estelle expressed her frastration with what she sees as “blindless in the British media and music industry to Black talent“. The singer, who is currently sitting at the top of the British charts also went on to question the promotion of an overwhelming white generation of young British singers…
We’re not saying Estelle is 100% wrong here [that’s not to say we think she’s 100% right either btw!], but it’s what she goes on to say that really doesn’t sit too well with us…
Estelle went on to single out Adele and Duffy saying:
“I’m not mad at them, but I’m wondering – how the hell is there not a single black person in the press singing soul? Adele ain’t soul. She sounds like she heard some Aretha records once, and she’s got a deeper voice – that don’t mean she’s soul. That don’t mean nothing to me in the grand scheme of my life as a black person. As a songwriter, I get what they do. As a black person, I’m like: you’re telling me this is my music? Fuck that!”
It’s one thing to express an opinion on the current situation in the music/media industry regarding [a lack of] multiculturalism, but to go on and bad mouth other artists for having the success they have had – is a whole different [and rather ugly] matter.
It’s not hot to come down on those who have had success or are having success just because they are singing Soul music – they really are not the ones you need to be venting your frustrations out on. Estelle is obviously proving that there is more than enough room for more artists [from all ethnicity’s for that matter] to make an impact in the British media, but by knocking other artists in the way she has appeared to have done here – well, it’s not only nonconstructive, it also weakens her credibility.
That’s our take on the matter anyhow…What do you think?

P.s We can’t help but think, that maybe this whole issue/interview is more in the name of publicity than political awareness. It comes at an all-too-convenient time we think…Hmmm..?

Mariah will be arriving in the UK on April 1st and will doing a whole host of cool things…
On the day of her arrival [April 1st] she will be exclusively signing her latest single “Touch My Body” in Selfridges, Oxford Street @ 5pm [you needs to be there!]. She will also be hosting The Friday Night Project that week (one of the best shows on TV at the moment!), which we think is pretty damn cool! As well as all of this, she will be on the Paul O’Grady show on April 4th.
…And as mentioned previously on PinBoard, London seems to be the place for major artists at the moment and we can now add Mariah to the must-see gigs this summer. Rumour has it that the biggest selling female artist of all time [don’t hate us Madonna/Whitney/Celine/Barbara] will be touring in the UK around June-ish. We’ll be thurr…will you? As soon as we know more (dates/ticket info etc) you’ll know more!
So get ready London, the DIVA is coming…
Peace, Love & Mariah
P.s Er…We’re just hoping all this isn’t some April Fool’s day joke?! LOL!

This tune is B I G!
Sam Sparro, an LA based-UK signed artist is about to blow up [we think] and here is his newest tune/video. The dude is funky…
We’re hoping he does well, the PinBoard crew have seen him live and his voice is SERIOUS…
To check out more from Mr Sparro go to his Myspace Page – HERE
