Katy B is the hot new female singer from the U.K. Just 21 years old, her debut album 'On A Mission' was released in the U.S. this past Tuesday, and has been met with praise from the likes of Billboard, Fader, The NY Times and Pitchfork. In the U.K. the album has already earned her top 10 singles and a Mercury Prize nomination.
The album features 12 songs, and includes production from Geeneus, Benga, Zinc and Benny ill. It's a beautiful fusion of underground electronic beats with Katy's lyrics. The album is full of soul, and Katy says that Jill Scott is one of her musical influences. Katy's live show has evolved from a live PA to fronting a full 10-piece band that recently supported John Legend and The Roots.

Hot new booty from Jon Kong and Chris Aidy - they took the melody from Conscindo by Mark Knight and Wolfgang Gartner and used the acapella from Star 69 by Fatboy Slim. I love it! Enjoy!

Anndyk is back with another stunning remix, this time working his magic on a track from TV Rock & Hook N Sling. This version has a nice progressive house vibe to it with a bit of a trancey edge without getting near the cheese factor. Very uplifting.
