What's hot on our playlist
Betty Woz Gone
StooShe use jokey raps and a genuinely soulful chorus to tell this sweary, Lily Allen-esque tale of a hard living, working-class single mother.
Drake ft Rick Ross
Flashy, triumphant hip-hop with the same grandiose production that powered Kanye West's 'My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy'.
Up Up Up
Insanely catchy ska-infused pop from Lafayette, Louisiana. Givers' yelpy, boy-girl vocals perfectly suit their early No Doubt-style music.
The Louche F.C.
Ignore the terrible band name; this is a swirling, earnest, majestic track reminiscent of C86-era indie pop.
More scuzzy guitar/synth pop from Brighton-based muso Sam McGarrigle. An Ariel Pink influence is hugely apparent.
A glorious slice of seedy, expressionist blues rock. As big and ballsy as Muddy Waters, but packed with Tom's ever-present, spirit of the night.
Commercial dance that continually rises and falls. There's something a tad Eighties about Lindstrom's croon.
The former Magazine bassist falls into the gap between post-punk and "Clarkson rock".
Experimental dance music that takes influence from Fela Kuti and James Brown.
Potter's attempt to create an Essex Taj Mahal was a lovely treattv
