I hope we are all well out there and eeking out the final dregs of sunshine out of this hopeless British summer. Right now over at the Rock Sound magazine site you can stream an exclusive listen to our new single 'Virus'. In FULL STEREO.

Elsewhere on the web, there are a couple of little splashes of Boom about that are worth mentioning. First of all, James T Boom has done a remix of 'Fugitive' by Newcastle's Rossi Noise that you can check out HERE.  James is looking out for collabs and production work and you can check out his creations on his Soundcloud page HERE.

Meanwhile, on a sunny afternoon in Manchester singer-songwriter Ian Britt visited his old pal Barney Boom. With some time to kill, instead of going out and getting drunk in the sun, they decided that they should do something productive. And so, they created a cover version of the number one reggaematical hit by the nation's favourite six-packed cuckold Peter Andre. We hope you enjoy it. Check it out on Ian's YouTube channel HERE.

Finally, Laila is involved in Hull's 'Female Takeover' project that runs at The Warren (21st - 24th August, 10am-9pm) and Fruit (25th August, 1pm-5pm). 'Female Takeover' is a free women only music project for 14-25's. As well as guest tutor Laila from Sonic Boom Six there are guest mentors Ysabelle Wombwell, Izzy Thomas, Kat Sax, Kyola Miller and Abbie Lammas. 'Female Takeover' features 4 days of workshops in: Confidence Building, Creative Writing, Song Structure, Making Beats, Singing, DJ'ing, MC'ing/Rapping, Sound Engineering, or just come and jam! Then perform or help out at a free event a Fruit on Saturday 25th August, 1pm - 5pm. Although the workshops on the 21st to 24th August at The Warren are only for women between 14 and 25, the event at Fruit on Saturday 25th, 1pm-5pm, is for EVERYBODY, so please come along :) Read more at the Facebook event HERE.
