Norah Jones That's What I Said (remix by Adrock & Mike D)
The jazz singer's sultry vocals get a sparkling electro/ hip-hop makeover from two-thirds of the Beastie Boys.
Let's Wrestle My Arms Don't Bend That Way, Damn It!
Let's Wrestle resuscitate mid-1990s slacker rock with a Pavement/Dinosaur Jr-influenced ode to disobedience.
Yo Gotti featuring Lil Wayne Women Lie, Men Lie
"Women lie, men lie, numbers don't," Jay-Z declared at the recent American Music Awards; and just like that, it's been turned into a hip-hop catchphrase by Yo Gotti.
Final Fantasy Lewis Takes Action
More looping orchestral and vocal magic from the forthcoming LP by Owen Pallett, aka Final Fantasy.
Kraftwerk The Model
The German techno legends have remastered their entire back catalogue. Celebrate with one of their hits.
Lee 'Scratch' Perry Santa Claus
The dub master sings a suitably bizarre ode to Santa Claus and Mickey Mouse over a skittish beat, fuzzy guitar and frenetic handclaps.
