Superb rhymes from a superb new talent from LA, Gavlyn, whose rhymes betray a vulnerability and fluidity all too rare in today's age of over-compensating femme shoutiness - 'Guilty Pleasure' flows like the finest bourbon over your day, loosening those shoulders up, rolling out that stress.

Keep an eye on her, she might just make 2014 her own.

Heralds of the modern disco scene come out of a quiet period with a remix package from duo, Blamma!

Groove Armada's Andy Cato serves up a Balearic ace alongside a slow electro manoeuvre from the Psychmagik boys. Two rousing deep house remixes from Kiani vs Red D and Eelke Kleijn round off this tidy return.
