    <b> Oriol </b> - Night And Day

    Born in Barcelona and now sharing his time between Cambridge and London, Oriol Singhji is not one to conceive electronic music as a cold and sterile medium. His debut album, Night And Day, on Planet Mu, is a sizzling melting pot of funky grooves, jazz fusion, electro disco and classic techno with discreet touches of dubstep sprinkled over to give his music just enough of a contemporary edge.

    <b> Terror Danjah </b> - Power Grid E.P.

    Last year's Gremlinz compilation, the kind of all-encompassing retrospective that usually chronicles dead careers, seemed to single-handedly rejuvenate legendary grime producer Terror Danjah. His 2010 has been prolific by anyone's standards, with new releases on Hyperdub, Butterz, Planet Mu and Rwina. Wisely moving away from his past horror-tinged strings into a brighter synth-focused palette, his recent work has retained its cartoonish, exaggerated sense of colour
