Sacrifice - Simian Mobile Disco & Sacrifice

This is an absolutely dreamy collab between music veterans Simian Mobile Disco and the bloggers behind 'Feel My Bicep' Bicep. This slow burner builds with melodic and hypnotic synths and then goes in heavy with a euphoric, beefy bass drop. Definitely one for the summer festivals and Ibizan beaches.

Praise You (Maribou State Remix) - Fatboy Slim

This is an absolutely supreme remix of Fatboy Slim's classic 1999 hit 'Praise You' by Maribou State who just can't seem to put a foot wrong. They've reworked the track so extensively that the upbeat original is barely recognisable in this much darker, mesmerising, hypnotic edit.

Be Mine - Blonde

Another funky, feel-good, infectious house track from duo Blonde, sampling some sweet-like-chocolate vocals from Usher.

Got Me (Produced by The EEL) - Sinead Harnett

Remember Sinead Harnett from Disclosure's summer hit 'Boiling'? Well the Londoner is back with a vengeance and laying smooth but powerful vocals over a a plethora of tracks for the likes of Kidnap Kid and Rudimental. My current favourite is her debut solo single produced by Eats Everything and Lukas forthcoming on Black Butter.

Real Connoisseur

I've just stumbled upon Oxford-based Connor Lloyd and boy is he something. I'm finding it difficult to digest that he's only 19 given the mature quality of his deep house beats and the fact that he's in cahoots with Ben Pearce's Purp & Soul already. Two of my faves -

Reverse Skydiving (Shadow Child Remix) - Hot Natured ft. Anabel Englund

OH MAA GAAD. This tune is huge. The original is born of DJ collective Hot Natured which is composed of Lee Foss, Jamie Jones, Luca C and Ali Love who smashed it a couple of months back with the ecstasy-inducing 'Benediction'. Dave Spoon's alter ego Shadow Child changes things up with this mesmerising, more sinister, garage infused remix introducing one hell of a drop. Props to Anabel Englund for the bang-on vocals. If ever there was such thing as an ear-gasm, this is it.

The Gettup - Eats Everything & Justin Martin

One of the finest collabs of the year so far, Dirtybird superstars have come together to produce this stormer of a record on Claude Von Stroke's label. In spite of the fact that Eats Everything and Justin Martin come from opposite sides of the world (West Coasts of the UK and US respectively) it hasn't stopped them being a collaborative force to be reckoned with, having brought us 'Feather Fight' earlier this year and with a full-length album in the pipeline for 2014. 'The Gettup' boasts a catchy chopped up vocal sample that builds into a storm of bass that will have any listener out the door and on their way to de clube in seconds.
