Jacob Banks - The Monologue EP

A wonderfully refreshing EP from upcoming singer/songwriter Jacob Banks, which features 8 tracks and is available for free download from HERE. His voice reminds of a cross between Michael Kiwanuka & Josh Kumra, with a unique style of his own that pops out on every single track. This is the best thing I've heard so far this year, and will take some beating for some time, I think. Too good.

C.R.S.T. vs Chesus - Monster Munch EP

C.R.S.T. & Chesus team up for a special four track EP on Local Talk, which includes two tracks from each act, all with contrasting, yet wonderful sounds. Been a huge fan of C.R.S.T. for some time now, Chesus has talent in abundance, and Local Talk are completely flawless, so this is a match made in heaven for me. Title track & 'Special' are my faves - sick samples.

Lianne La Havas - Elusive (S-Type Remix)

Played on radio for the first time last night during Monki's In New DJs We Trust debut on Radio 1, here's the fantastic S-Type rework of Lianne La Havas' "Elusive", which is taken from her debut album Is Your Love Big Enough?. There's only a handful of producers that should be allowed to remix this girl's songs, and it would appear that the Scottish producer is now a part of that elite club.

Indiana - Swim Good (Frank Ocean Cover)

Following on from her debut single 'Blind As I Am' last year, Indiana kicks off the new year with a very unique and haunting cover of Frank Ocean's 'Swim Good'. There have been countless covers of this song over the past year or so, but this is without doubt one of my favourites. Looking forward to more from Indiana in 2013.

Chicken Lips - He Not In (Eats Everything Chicken Tits Rewix)

Forthcoming on the ever impressive Defected Records, here is the new one from Eats Everything, which is a Re...wix of the Chicken Lips single 'He Not In'. Eats had a monster 2012, and I'll be amazed if the same doesn't happen in 2013.
