Another week over and it's that time again. If you're not at Glastonbury this weekend, this playlist will get you through whilst you scroll through Instagram with major envy. The Internet return to the playlist again with their second cut, 'Girl', from their forthcoming album Ego Death. It has a sultry and slow vibe but it's best attribute is Syd's vocals, which have massively improved since the group's debut album Purple Naked Ladies. Little Simz is currently tearing things up out in the States but she found time to share 'Lane Switch', which sees the rapper spit ferociously over a rapid beat, as per usual. BNJMN hooked up with Maurice Moore and took things back to the Noughties, whilst they played around on the 'lol'. P Money remains one of the best emcees in the game and he proved it this week with the release of 'Sounds and Gimmicks'. Irish rapper Rejjie Snow shared new music also, his first since his EP, Rejovich. Wolfie glides over the mellow production of her latest track 'Come Over', one to watch very closely.

Such is the steep, climbing trajectory of Surrey siblings Disclosure, this date at London’s Heaven already feels like a booking they’ve somewhat outgrown. Fans of the duo’s futuristic, balearic-tinged house spill out of every orifice of the chock-full Villiers Street superclub; preened, keen and dressed to the nines. They’re the lucky few. Many have tried and failed to be here this evening and so, if it wasn’t predictable enough from their inescapable approval and elevated chart position (the Lawrence brothers and AlunaGeorge currently sit in the Official UK Top 10), tonight feels like an event of weighty anticipation.
Not that this sense of occasion fazes exceptional new London collective Clean Bandit. Initially lining-up as a glitter-clad, six-piece tonight - with Nikki B and Makeda Moore providing a slew of smooth, soulful runs - they enthral throughout; swaying in sync during the pounding electronica of ‘Nightingale’, before inciting the crowd with ‘A+E’(s) contagious, chamber-electro chorus. However, their set hits new heights with the arrival of gold-hooded rapper, MC Ssegamic, who is charisma personified, mocking the movements of a baton-wielding conductor during the giddy, orchestral bliss of ‘Mozart’s House’. “We can’t leave London like this! Let’s drop a classic”, he says, before they send the converted attendance into ecstasy with a thrilling, Coolio/Destiny’s Child mash-up. The new Basement Jaxx, some say? Undoubtedly.
It could be a tricky support slot to follow, but Disclosure are far from knob-twiddling dullards; their forthcoming LP-heavy set is an immersive electronic experience from the off, with the two-piece flitting between drum pads, bass and synths on impulse. It takes the unveiling of EP favourite ‘Boiling’ to really ignite proceedings, the track’s honeyed, neo-soul and throaty bass proving irresistible amidst the darting strobes. However, the reaction is tame compared to what follows; the twosome play their trump card by welcoming the hypnotic Aluna Francis to join them for the electrifying, and chart-topping, ‘White Noise’, before launching into the skittery patches and spliced vocals of ‘What’s In Your Head’. It’s an exhilarating double, followed by their dancefloor-unifying remix of Jessie Ware's ‘Running’; the sold-out crowd's unanimous euphoria proving that it really has taken on a life of its own since its B-side release early last year. Duly, they complete a captivating set with the magnificent ‘Latch’, dangling it’s sampled “Ne-ver”(s) in front of the hordes, prior to greeting the silk-voiced Sam Smith on stage. “Now I got you in my space, I won’t let go of you” he cries, in front of a backdrop of their soon-to-be-iconic, neon faces; it’s a DJ’s motto if ever we’ve heard one, and one that they undeniably uphold.
The gorgeous Jessie Ware has covered Bobby Caldwell's 'What You Won't Do For Love' and it is truly stunning. Aided by some amazing production from SBTRKT collaborater Sampha, Jessie has made the track her own. We all know Caldwell's version is untouchable; but Jessie owns this version in her own right.
Jessie hails from our very own London Town, and is best known for her 2012 single 'Wildest Moments.' She has sung with the likes of heavyweights SBTRKT and JOKER too. As well as setting out with Camden Town's Man Like Me and singing on a few of their tracks, as well as singing with the band live.
Jessie is a super talent and one who is bound to do more than well in 2013. Signed to PMR records and at only 27 years old, there's alot more to come from this beauty with the vintage sound.
Producer Distinction turns his attention closer to home taking on fellow UK dweller Jessie Ware’s ‘Devotion’ for the latest in his series of refixes that have been building a phenomenal online buzz.
In 2012 Distinction reworked a few tracks which included Frank Ocean’s ‘Swim Good’ and Danny Brown’s ‘Grown Up.’ He has recently being selected by the UK’s leading youth broadcaster, SB.TV as a “Ones To Watch” in 2013.
This remix/refix is a joy for the ears, enjoy as the rain stops and the sunshine comes back out over London!
