What's hot on our playlist
Falling (Dark Sky Remix)
Huge remix from the South London duo. Epic vocals and repetitive garage beats help to create an intense euphoria.
A crushingly delicate melody sits atop a simple, rolling piano riff. "Lightsick" is our favourite Zola Jesus track by quite some way.
The Dum Dum Girls
He Gets Me High
The title track from their four-song EP takes the Dum Dum's trademark garage and marries it with a Raveonettes-esqe scuzzy glam.
Take Your Time
Euphoric yet understated, this slice of summer dance will brighten the most blustery March day.
Freaks and Geeks
The beats are inspired by Kanye West, but the witty lines are pure Gambino – aka Donald Glover, star of the NBC sitcom 'Community'.
This slow burning track is basically the New Orleans rap veteran's love song to smoking marijuana.
The Boy with the Thorn in His Side
Twenty-five years old this month, The Smiths' seminal 'The Queen Is Dead' album continues to inspire a new era of Mancunian bands from Hurts to The Heartbreaks. This poetic yet defiantly gloomy track is 1980s indie at its very best/
Songs for Women
