What's hot on our playlist
Orbital ft Zola Jesus
The duo's first LP in eight years is out in April. If this Zola Jesus collab is anything to go by, expect plenty of characteristically epic dance.
Left & Right (Harmonimix Remix)
James Blake has been a fan of the R&B star for a while, but this is the BBC Sound of 2011 runner-up's first attempt at working with his music.
Here We Go Magic
Make Up Your Mind
Quirky, ska-driven indie-pop produced by Radiohead confidant Nigel Godrich. Perfect for a summer festival.
Premiered during Young Turks' guest-host spot on Australia's FBi Radio, this track sees Jamie xx continue to experiment with world music.
A majestically downbeat six-minute instrumental, taken from Blonde Redhead's Japan Tsunami benefit compilation.
Willis Earl Beal
Take Me Away
Billing himself as "the black Tom Waits", Beal's highly percussive, thunder-voiced take on delta blues is magnificent.
Soulful synth-pop packed with playfully corny spoken-word lines like "let the musicians be your physicians."
Lil Durk ft King Louie
I Get Paid
A tinny, skittish beat from producer Fya Starta helps to drive Durk and Louie's cocky but minimalist raps forward.
wen uuu (Salva Remix)
An early release from 'Mo's hotly tipped 12'' remix EP.
