Ahh! We’re at the end of 2012 now and we are reminiscing, and for some of us - even tearing up at memories of an incredible year flown by. We are surrounded by lists x lists x lists of “the best of” and “favorite” things of yore.
Well we’re mixing it up a bit by presenting the “best of” mashups by Tunezy artists so without further adieu— here are our 5 fave mashups to close the year out with!
Bruno Mars and Frank Sinatra? Smooth and soulful - makes sense to us!
Aw Clara C, still sounds so good with minor slip-ups. Who said a violin and piano jam couldn’t be beat the original rap by B.O.B.?
WOW. Moulann you give us chills chills chills.
Hm ok. So Halo, Superbass and Your Body are meant to be one song, but were just separated at birth. Thank you Maggie for conjoining them all back together.
Sam Tsui and Megan Nicole, a tale of two mashed-up voices.
What’s your fave mashup?

Whether you’re planning a “Last Christmas” karaoke sing-off with your cousins after the big feast - OR - planning a snuggle with your loved ones on the couch while watching Mariah Carey dance around as Mrs. Claus (seriously though, no judgement) - it’s a big day today!
We wanted to bring you something uber special, but we thought that personal deliveries of figgy pudding, partridges in pear trees and chocolate-covered oranges are tooo overrated, don’t you think?? Rather - here are 5 festive holiday songs by Tunezy artists to impress your family and friends with during the day.
Tori Kelly and AJ Raphael present their soulful, perfectly harmonized version of the Wham! favourite, Rachel and Finn Glee-style.
Joseph Vincent tells us who’s dropping in to say hello with an upbeat, Jason Mraz-esque version of the classic song.
Aw yeah good ole Clara C gets us in the mooood for the holidays.
Um. So how jealous are you of Jayesslee’s Australian sunny Christmas backdrop??
Let’s close things out here with a jazzy, mellow melody from Gabe Bondoc and Kina Grannis!
What’s your fave holiday tune?

Well, it’s been a big ol’ year this year. And before we get into the countdown phase, we just want to say HAPPY HOLIDAYS to you and yours, from us.
We wouldn’t be where we are, and who we are without you. Listen to some cheesy, wonderful, festive music for us, will you?
Every year, Billboard hosts a conference called FutureSound in San Francisco which aims to bridge the gap between the music and technology industries. I had the opportunity to pitch at the conference in front of a room full of artists, music industry members, investors, and techies. I was a delegate at the conference last year, so it was great to come back as an actual finalist and officially speak about Tunezy in a room full of big-deal people.
Some may label Alex Kelly’s sound as “pop” but don’t even think about fitting her in a box. Alex’s musical style is a mashup upon mashup of genres, as her “electro-rock” sound fuses perfectly with alternative dance beats and catchy pop overlays.
As a native New Yorker, she is daring, spunky and fearless, naturally showcased in her live performances. Having performed in exclusive New York City venues any emerging artist would be envious of, including Webster Hall, and The Bowery Electric, she has proven to be a magnetic performer, and risk-taker through her creative vision and sound.
This street-pop siren is currently on fire with her latest single Catalyst from her first full-length album, Orange Circle.
Tunezy was able to catch up with Alex during the final leg of her East coast tour for a quick Q+A:
Moulann has been charming worldwide audiences since the release of her first album in 2003, which sold out after two prints, even with no publicity. After demand for a more global launch, she’s back with her sophomore album, Spirals and Mazes, filled with twelve original songs, sure to warm even the coldest of souls.
Her natural ability to blend harmonious, original melodies with lyrical, modern elements speaks for itself. When Moulann sings, you can’t help but feel she is baring her heart and her deepest secrets with the audience. Moulann is a true emotive artist. Like a dancer on stage, Moulann dances on the piano with her stirring, expressive tone and eloquent movement.
It’s easy to hear Moulann’s diverse range of influences in her music. Whether she’s performing a sultry, smoky cover of Lana Del Rey, a quirky mash-up of Britney Spears, or a smooth, calming original song, Moulann’s creations are authentic and memorable.
Tunezy was lucky to chat with Moulann after her tour in Asia - here’s 5 quick questions with the seductive songwriter:
It’s the #STFUparty! Aka Sound, Tech, Fashion & U (see and hear what you want to see and hear). Tunezy’s so excited to share in the holidays with urbanebloc.com, and it’s going to be a good one. Poutine, cupcakes, fresh foods, lots of drinks, skin consultations, tailor measurements…and more.

Late July Arrives For Winter
Nicole Simone, better known as Late July, is a bi-coastal multi-talented instrumentalist, singer and songwriter. Don’t let the name fool you though, this chic crooner released her debut EP in April 2010, and has not slowed down since. Keeping fans captivated with mesmerizing music videos and thought-provoking lyrics, Late July has since recorded three more digital albums. She is currently promoting songs off her 3rd album,”When The Curtain Falls”, and just recently launched her 4th album, full of original Christmas tunes called “Who Cares it’s Christmas.” Tunezy sat down for a quick Q+A with the beautiful blogging songstress.
Bleed Electric is Breaking Boundaries
Bleed Electric is the triple threat of triple threats. Hot off the release of their latest EP, fearlessly titled ‘This Is My Masterpiece’, all three members of the group, Chris “MUG5” Maguire, Silk, and Siege, are masters of producing, rapping and singing.
Bleed Electric’s creative sound is an eruptive amalgamation of electro hip-hop, r&b and rock. No one would ever guess this group’s 4th studio EP was actually created two years ago, in 2010. In fact, that’s the exact cutting-edge style that Bleed Electric goes for, defining their own sound as “future fresh.”
The group is currently continents apart, with founder MUG5 now in New York City, and Silk and Siege back in the UK. Yet, working in silos is not an option as the boys harness technology to cohesively progress a new genre of music.
Meet Chris “MUG5” Maguire, of Bleed Electric.
