• Having recently departed BBC Radio 1Xtra after fifteen years, DJ Semtex presented the first edition of a new Friday night show on commercial station Capital Xtra last week. “It’s an honour to be at Capital Xtra”, he says. “I think what they’ve been doing is amazing, it typifies the UK experience”.

• Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello has released new solo track ‘Every Step That I Take’, featuring Portugal The Man and Whethan. “‘Every Step That I Take’ deals with the haunting voices of fear and love on the steps of the emotional gallows”, he says. “We are honoured to be partnering with SAVE, a suicide prevention organisation, with this track. You are not alone and there is always help available”.

• Blood Orange has released the video for ‘Chewing Gum’, from his new album ‘Negro Swan’.
