Singles
Katy on a Mission by Katy B: Actual good dubstep…no really.

Try Sleeping with a Broken Heart by Alicia Keyes: A lovely, moving vocal, backed up by a simplistic and supportive arrangement.

Ill Behaviour by Danny Byrd: Hospitcal records and Byrd at there best. Catchy, mainstream, but without watering down the drum ‘n’ bass sound, a surefire way to get the party started.

Prayin’ (Chase and Status remix) by Plan B: The original vocal is beefed up by dark drum ‘n’ bass beats.

The Man with the Red Face by Laurent Garnier: A beautiful piece of electro house. This old school track is full of emotion but fantastic for a party at the same time, and proves why Garnier is such a legend on the house scene.

Albums
The Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd: Classic. Timeless. Own it.

1977 by Ash: The album that broke the then young Northern Irish band, is all that is good about pop rock; uplifting, moving and fun all in one. Contains fantastic singles Girl From Mars, Kung Fu and Goldfinger that you will be singing for weeks.

Lungs by Florence and the Machine: Florence’s magnificent voice soars over gritty yet catchy pop songs. As good for party music, as the soundtrack to the morning after.

The Resistance by Muse: Euphoric choruses, twiddly guitar solos, and end of the world conspiracy-all in a days work for Muse, who prove once again why they are one of the biggest bands on the planet.

Tongue in Cheek by Dizzee Rascal: Rightly nominated for this years Mercury Music Prize, this album reminded people that grime could be fun. Some tougher numbers in amongst the chart singles act as a reminder that Dizzee hasn’t forgotten his routes.

Nevermind by Nirvana : The album that brought grunge to the world, and sent Kurt Cobain over the edge. Every song is a timeless pop-rock classic.

S&M by Metallica: The best thrash metal band on the planet ripping through a ‘Best Of’ set in their home time, accompanied by top orchestra the San Francisco Symphony, oh go on then…
