"I feel a whole lot better," maintains a hoarse Wayne Coyne, apologising for being too ill to play the previous day's cancelled concert before informing us that "being sick is pretty petty" compared to the tornado disaster in Oklahoma, his home state.

As well as turning Ryan Gosling into an action hero, the noirish thriller Drive has also given a nitro boost to the career of musician David Grellier. Under his pseudonym College, the French electronica producer provides the backing for one of the film's rare romantic interludes – when Gosling's getaway driver takes Carey Mulligan and son for a jaunt down that iconic urban idyll, the Los Angeles River.

London based artist David Shillinglaw was born of British parents in 1982 in the Middle East, which may explain his thirst for travel and exhibiting in galleries worldwide. Since graduating from Central Saint Martins in 2002, he has exhibited in galleries in Japan, China, Holland, and keys cities such as New York, Beijing, Berlin and Istanbul.

“So show me where you fit,” the beanpole (6'5'') dubstep singer trembles on "Retrograde", from his pioneering new album Overgrown. James Blake, to his immense credit, doesn't easily "fit" anywhere.
