Idles have remixed ‘Pay Your Way In Pain’ by St Vincent. “It reminded me a lot of the energy of early house and techno, but wrapped up in this early 70s aesthetic”, says Idles’ Mark Bowen of the original track. “I wanted to ramp up the camp and the violence in the remix but still maintain the sentiments and sensibilities of the original track”.

Earl Sweatshirt will release new album ‘Sick!’ on 14 Jan. From it, this is new single ‘Tabula Rasa’, featuring Armand Hammer. “‘Sick!’ is my humble offering of ten songs recorded in the wake of the worldwide coronavirus pandemic and its subsequent lockdowns”, he says. “I leaned into the chaos cause it was apparent that it wasn’t going anywhere. These songs are what happened when I would come up for air”.

Blue Hawaii have released new track ‘LOVE’.

Scuti has released new track ‘KitKat’. “Have you ever met somebody that just doesn’t know when to stop talking? That was the vibe for this song”, she says. “Some people just need to chill and have a KitKat, simple but true”.

No, it wasn’t some awful dream you had, Crazy Frog really is making a comeback. In fact, his new single ‘Tricky’ – a take on the Run DMC classic – is out now. This is why we can’t have nice things.
