Weekend Wedding Jams - The 2013 wedding music playlist?

It’s time for some more Weekend Wedding Jams, this time looking ahead to the music that may well be rocking a dancefloor near you in 2013.

Alunageorge Your Drums Your Love

These exciting new artists could very well be a part of your wedding music playlist in the future, so take a first listen right now. Click on the playlist below to get started, let us know if you love these songs as much as we do and share your 2013 music tips in the comments below…

AlunaGeorge – Your Drums, Your Love

Do you like R’n'B? How about UK bass music? Well, AlunaGeorge love them both so much that they’ve merged them to create their own deeper take on pop music. While the big US pop producers are taking inspiration from far more in-your-face European electronic music, Aluna Francis and her pal George Reid are carving out their own niche. With a fanbase that has been built the right way – through word-of-mouth – AlunaGeorge now boast major label support and an increasing profile in the press. So, it’s now or never for them to appear in your local HMV, if it still exists later in 2013. AlunaGeorge are on the verge of something special, but for now we will have to make do with last summer’s “Your Drums, Your Love” until their new material arrives.

Inc. – The Place

Like Disclosure, Inc. are two brothers who have shared their musical upbringing and turned their passion into their profession. Residing in LA and formally known by the boyband-esque name of Teen Inc., they are set to take soul music into the same subtle and sensitive realms that The XX have taken British indie rock. “The Place” is about as heartfelt and hypnotic as music gets; expect their forthcoming album to soundtrack as many intimate moments as D’Angelo did in the ’90s.

Disclosure – Control

Disclosure may only be young, but they have been sending dancefloors into a frenzy since the summer of 2010 when the brothers’ intricate and sophisticated “Carnival” was released when they were barely old enough to sneak into the clubs playing their music. Now they have already had a big hit with “Latch” and an LP is in the works, they could become the go-to dance producers of this decade once the pop fraternity catches onto their accessible yet underground update on garage music. They are pretty handy at DJing too…

Hiatus Kaiyote – Nakamarra

Making music as warm as the climate, Hiatus Kaiyote hail from Down Under where they are poised to wow the world of soul and jazz. “Nakamarra” is a favourite of Gilles Peterson, the arbiter of taste in the dance music world, so expect them to make it big on the underground scene that he is an ambassador for. You may not hear them in the top 40 any time soon, but we’ll just make them our little secret, OK?

Laura Mvula – She

How Laura Mvula can make music that sounds so unique, yet so warmly catchy and seemingly familiar, is beyond us. The absolute shining star of British soul music in the 21st century.

The rest…

Thom Yorke’s new project, King Krule, the return of Jamie Lidell, Delphic and Bonobo are also looking like delivering some great records in 2013. Who else should we keep an eye on?

The best night of your life deserves the perfect soundtrack.
