What's hot on our playlist
Heady transcendental dance bursting with minimal loops. An ideal soundtrack to those vaunted "lost weekends".
Despite his 1990s "slow jam" influences, the Odd Future balladeer sounds fresh and (relatively) cliché-free.
MIA recites simplistic lines over Eastern instrumentation, while Danja provides a snappy beat on which the song rests.
Avalon (Lindstrøm & Prins Thomas Version)
Released earlier this week, this gloomy remix manages to retain the jazzy, romantic feel of Roxy's original ballad.
Are You... Can You... Were You?
Soulful hip-hop centred around a sharp off-beat piano hook and subtle funk horns.
Gothic hardcore mixing the theatrics of Marilyn Manson's 'Antichrist Superstar' with mystical Eastern chants.

Another new demo track from Denmark's lowest-fidelity, electro-punk supergroup.
Brooklyn's indie ace-face returns as a sultry, C86-referencing, electro-pop princess.
