Remember Sam Smith from Disclosure's chart topping hit 'Latch'? Well, here he is laid bare in all his acoustic glory. Stunning.

Yet another young (and northern) producer on our hands here. Armeria aka Jake Norman first caught my attention with his melodic and soulful track 'While I've Got It Together' - a chilled future garage tune spliced with R&B elements. This led me to listen to his soundcloud on repeat so I was ecstatic when new track 'What You Need' emerged. Definitely worth the wait - chilled sunny vibes.

I first caught wind of this London based duo on the Eton Messy channel with 'No More Sunshine' last summer. From there things dominoed and I found myself a new obsession. They effortlessly combine elements of house and bass music evocative of that magnetic 'future bass' sound, mixing in dulcet R&B vocals. 'In Need' is another favourite of mine but their remix of Ellie Goulding's 'Figure 8' is probably the most addictive. I expect huge things from these fellas in 2013.

I - unashamedly - love the original of this song. Having definitely rinsed the replay button, seeing that Cyril Hahn had taken his skilled handed to creating a remix, made me very excited. Adding to a gradually building reppatoire of remixes, Cyril Hahn kicks of his 2013 with this deep remix perfectly complemented by Gabrielle Alpin's vocals. Midas touch once again..

This smooth remix of Flume's 'Sleepless' is brought you by Aussie Charles Murdoch (a member of the band, Mitzi) on Future Classic's label. I've heard a couple of other remixes of this song, but the way Charles Murdoch cuts up the vocals and adds in choppy melodies makes this one stand above the others - proving good things do come from down under.
Not the kind of sound I'd come to know from Skream, but this new track 'Copycat' sees an interesting collaboration with Kelis who brings her distinctive vocals. However, maybe not one to listen to over a cup of tea with your parents..

THIS IS DEDICATED TO MY LADIES IN THE BACK. Amine Edge & DANCE on the remix for Star Slinger, huge deep house floor filler on our hands here. So funky I feel like I need a fro.
