Max Cooper - Harmonisch Serie
Listen/Buy

My favourite DJ/Producer of the moment who has carved out a style that truly is his own. He equally inspires and confuses his audiences. Brilliant.

 
Gallops - Miami Spider
Listen/Buy

I’m a bit of a sucker for “maths rock” and this super track fools you a little about the time signature it's in – it’s clever and powerful. Definitely the best thing to have ever come out of Wrexham.

 
James Blake - I'll Stay
Listen/Buy

Very exciting signing for me – here’s a track he put out on R&S, before his A&M days – I love his “cut-up” approach.

 
Jessie J - Who’s Laughing Now
Listen/Buy

There’s nothing better than watching a great band enjoying themselves playing. Jessie shows she can rock as well as swing.

 
Planet Boelex - Sailor’s Dilemma
Listen/Buy

Amazing one man electronica outfit from Finland that makes beautiful chill out music and chooses to give it away for free.

 
Aerosmith - Young Lust
Listen/Buy

Proof that the best rock music is Black (and blue!)
