'Give It Up' is the new Howard Lawrence (Disclosure) produced solo single from Jimmy Napes, which is taken from his forthcoming debut EP, set for release through Method Records on March 8th. A gorgeous slice of forward-thinking Electro-Pop that gets better with every listen.
After shutting down dancefloors all across Europe last Summer and with plays on all the Radio 1 Dance Shows towards the end of last year, Hot Creations have now unleashed the new one from Steve Lawler. 'House Record' is an infectious piece of forward-thinking acid-inspired house, with a nod to the past. Too good.
Another stomping release from Swedish label Local Talk, which comes courtesy of Merrick with a little help from Baxley. Classic bassline sounds, relentless drums and the most beautiful chords - this is an EP for the real house lovers.
To kick-off 2015 in style, here is LA-based producer Dino Soccio's stunning edit of one of my favourite tracks from D'Angelo's near flawless third album 'Black Messiah'. This is everything, and more...
Just in time to mark the turn of the new year, Wednesday night saw Kanye West drop his first piece of new solo material in over a year, in the form of a heavily auto-tuned collaborative track with none-other than Sir Paul McCartney.

All the same it's a beauty and, perhaps, more importantly Kanye's back.
French producer Crayon puts his own spin on the latest single from the controversial and never dull Miss Azealia Banks. This blows the original out of the water and is probably one of my favourite remixes for some time.
One of the dancefloor stompers of 2014 is finally getting a release on January 12th, via Kry Wolf's 'DNA' V/A EP on the ever forward-thinking Food Music imprint. A massive one for anyone who has heard this in a club over the past few months...
