Guess what? The Dre album is an absolute belter! Make sure it's the soundtrack to your road trips to the following...


Don't believe that rubbish about clubs dying - our scene is stronger than ever, including Andy C selling out his Brixton show in a matter of minutes.

Upcoming highlights include Elrow coming to the UK and Defected and Get Physical teaming up, whilst we had a lot of fun at Seth Troxler's Acid Future. We've also had chats with Claude VonStroke and Oliver Huntemann this week, and watched Big Narstie get grimy in our Skiddle bus (above).


Sniff, soon festival season will be over for another year, so make sure you get at least one more in. Creamfields looks great, so we've looked at five of the best from headliners The Chemical Brothers and done a natty virgin's guide for people yet to pop their cherry at the rave paradise.

Off to Festival No 6? Check out our five must see acts there. We also broke down the Annie Mac presents and the Bitch arenas at Bestival and Mint Festival respectively, and had a chat with the guys behind Moseley Folk Festival

Live Music

Hot Chip, CHVRCHES and NYC punk funkers ESG are the tours for you to get your teeth into this week, as well as gripping new music from Mac DeMarco and our interview with Pinkshinyultrablast.

Until the next time folks; stay raving.
