It's already time for the longlist of 10 acts picked to (perhaps) embody the music of the next 12 months:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-59531670
The 10 acts in the running are:

Baby Queen
Central Cee
ENNY
Lola Young
Mimi Webb
PinkPantheress
Priya Ragu
Tems
Wet Leg
Yard Act
It's a predominantly female list too, and I've heard of almost all of them (largely because they've already had hits, but that's a perennial question...)

Fresh For 2022
This strand fizzled out last year, but maybe live gigs will resume in earnest this time. Abbie Macarthy was back again, talking via zoom to Amaria BB, Thomas Headon, Lola Young and Arrdee, and there were also videos from other tips like Holly Humberstone, Wet Leg and Priya Ragu.

MTV Push 2022 - New Artists We Love!
Just the vids, and a lot of overlap, though worth noting Enny, Cat Burns, Shaybo and Bad Boy Chiller Crew in their line-up.

BBC Three x Radio 1 - The Launch Party
As the channel returns to screens after a long hiatus, a special audio/visual show fronted by Clara Amfo and Greg James. Besides performances from George Ezra and Wet Leg, Jack Saunders chatted to Pinkpantheress before she did her song Reason.

BBC Music Introducing, at Celtic Connections
A crossover which featured Kenneth MacFarlane, Neev, Odia and Quiet Houses in various performances. All seemed fine.

Fresh This Month: March
Maybe they've given up on live chats even, this was a lengthy round-up of current and future hits, ranging from Bree Runway and Arlo Parks, through Mimi Webb and Tate McRae, to Amaria BB and Central Cee.

Abbie Macarthy again on the voice-over, but also interviewing a chap from Bad Boy Chiller Crew. Elsewhere tracks from Kenah, Sam Tompkins and Prya Ragu, plus more old stagers like Charli XCX.

Wet Leg's eponymous debut album has entered the UK album charts at #1! ahead of over-rated Father John Misty, and old stager Jack White. Camila Cabello was way off the pace...

BBC Music Introducing... Scottish Act of the Year 2022
Phoebe I-H and Shereen Cutkelvin presented as 4 acts performed 2 songs each, one of which had to be a cover, for a celebrity panel of members of acts like Twin Atlantic and Churches. The four acts were:

Dictator
Lizzie Reid
Bemz
Van Ives

and though I personally felt he was the worst, they voted Bemz as the winner.

Trace Hits Recommends: Bryn
A short profile from a female drill rapper, who appeared on Series 3 of the Rap Game. Her inspirations range from Fleetwood Mac to Lil Peep. She loves anime jumpers and ice skating. Her song was Clouds.

Trace Hits Recommends: Alissic
She was inspired as a child by Avril Lavigne, and Brazil is her home. She has her first gigs still come, and cited Kate Bush as a hero. Her track was Piano.

New Generation Artists presents
Georgia Mann presents a showcase concert with performances from Mariam Batsashvili, Sean Shibe, Ema Nikolovska, Kunal Lahiry and the Aris Quartet. Good stuff.

Trace Hits Recommends: Sam Ryder
Amusingly shot before his EuroVision success, he talked about making an impact during lockdown, his wide choices of musical favourites from Iron Maiden to Motown, writing his stuff in collaboration, naming several other upcoming acts he rates, and talking about his songs More and Tiny Riot.

TUNE: Bemz
From Fairlie, a short set, including the cover/remix he did to help win the Scottish Act of the Year crown.

Fresh This Month (June)
No Abbie even this time, just a selection of videos, ranging from East Everything & Shermanology to Cody Frost, and already established names like Mahalia, Maiser Peters and Tion Wayne's collaboration with La Roux.

Trace Hits Recommends
Also just a selection of videos, and the better for it. Some different faces like Charlotte Jane and Cilla Raie, and Reve, but also the current Cat Burns track which has been Top 5 for weeks, and Sam Ryder's EuroVision smash too.

Fresh This Month (July)
No signs of returning to its old format, though Abbie at least got a look-in this month, in a "not in person" chat to Dylan Fraser. Most of the rest was all too predictable and stale.

Fresh This Month (September)
Abbie spoke to Junior Andre, and there were lesser names like Jae5 and Confidence Man, plus some who don't get the coverage like Rina Sawayama, and a few who are always pushed regardless, such as Aitch and Inhaler.
