Kanye feat. Beyonce
After debuting his “moving painting” for debut single Power (and the new remix just this morning), Kanye uploaded another new poppier R&B tune called See Me Now on his blog. Extra points for the line “I’mma let you finish but I got Beyonce on the track.”
Rosanna (pictured) has all the requirements for a pop star – 1) She’s Swedish. 2) She sounds like a cross between Lykke Li and Robyn. 3) She’s signed to Popjustice’s new label. 4) Her debut single Waterfall sounds like a hit.
Fancy some gut-wrenching hypnotic art-techno that sounds like it was made in Joy Division’s backyard in 80s Manchester? This London trio have some serious heft in their dystopian dance music.

Coventry is the birthplace of Jon Pritchard, a young producer who has impressed with his J Dilla-esque hip-hop-flavoured electronica. With the likes of Bullion, Paul White and Gold Panda releasing high-quality productions, the UK seems to be where it’s at.
