The one thing that stands out for Marc Kitchen (MK) are his euphoric drops. I've been lucky enough to see him live back a few moths ago, he toys with the crowd with teasing samples of the famous 'look right through' mixed in until we can't take it any more, but also his broad range of house music in his sets illustrates what a talent he really is. This his latest remix is a real endorphin rush rich with soul and a uplifting piano keys, and that drop is really something else. If you haven't seen him live yet buy your tickets now!

So you're sitting here in front of your computer screen, it's a raining and gloomy outside.. but hit play and you'll be transported to some distant exotic Spanish Beach. 'If I could live again' is a pumping tropical house tune, it has a rich and colourful radiance guitar chords which just absorbs you. For those 4 minutes 33 seconds I'm not in England, I'm taking in the sun of Ibiza on a sandy beach.

Words don't even come close to describe the beauty of London Grammar. Last week I was at the Secret Garden Party Festival, rain was slowly petering down from the dark evening sky and a green glow emanated from the tall trees surrounding the stage on which London Grammar stood. I diddn't believe until love at first sight until I first saw lead singer Hannah Reid on stage... and that was before she sang a single note. Her voice is mature and enchanting with a hint of sorrow which makes it so instantly likeable. Wild Culture have made their own interpretation of the original, this is one for a late night listen.

Applebottom has to be one of the most heavily featured artists on Beats Per Day, if not the most featured artist! This teenager has been at the forefront of the future house movement from the word go, ever since the iconic 'let you' we have been cast under his spell, the old school house flavours reincarnated into a new house feel is irresistible. After reaching 15,000 followers he has kindly released the beautiful 'someone' on a free download. Enjoy!

Tonight I find myself having a quiet night in, I decide to catch up on all the latest music, you too may find yourself in the early hours of the morning endlessly searching the darkest depths of soundcloud for that one track. But then it happens. I find that banging tune i've been craving so badly, however after 5 plays I find myself awake and wired, energy runs through my vains and I'm raving along. Tonight I have Pete Oak to thank. Boy is this a belter!
There is something so irresistable about Laura Mvula's voice, it's naturally beautiful, rich and raw, no wonder she's been one of the starts of 2013. The legend that is MJ Cole has painted a groovy remix over the original which allows that stunning voice to flourish in its full colours. Pure feel good music.

The UK has been hit by a scorching heatwave this week, at every opportunity people have escaped outdoors to catch time in the sun, towns full of burnt red faces, busy beer gardens and melting ice-creams. The sun has just brought happiness, just in time with a fresh delivery from the hugely talented Armeria. He has somehow put even more radiance and happiness into Karma Kid's original, it cant help but put a smile on your face.
