Studio Sam | 20:36 UK time, Wednesday, 30 June 2010

C-LO-2.jpg

It's a bold move for any artist to cover such a beautiful classic -but Cee-lo Green has done it magnificently. Interpreting Band of Horses and 'No One's Gonna Love You', Cee-Lo's decided to mark his returning solo project with soul and intergrity...as if you'd expect anything less. Exciting times ahead for one half of Gnarls Barkley, and get ready for some stunning performances as he prepares to go live later in the year.

Hottest Record - Klaxons - Echoes

Zane Lowe | 20:21 UK time, Tuesday, 29 June 2010

If 'Flashover' was a little too intense for your tastes, then the Klaxons new single 'Echoes' should put your mind in ease about the forthcoming album. Still with a developed edginess that was missing on the debut, 'Echoes' points to the future while being faithful to their past.

Despite trying times for Slipknot, and the friends and family of the sadly now deceased Paul Gray, Music gets made.

And Corey Taylors 'Stone Sour' return with a great new song called Mission Statement. It's tonight's HR in the world.

Hottest Record - Asher Roth - G.R.I.N.D (Get Ready It's A New Day)

Zane Lowe | 20:09 UK time, Tuesday, 22 June 2010

asher.jpg

Your boy Asher Roth jumps back on the scene with a more thoughtful approach on his new track 'G.R.I.N.D'. Inspiring, rather than perspiring, it hints at a more grown up second record, but this is Asher after all. Keg party can't be too far away.

Make no mistake - this is undeniably Chase and Status going in full charge, leaving no stone unturned for what will be a SMASH. Featuring new talent Mali, 'Let You Go' has the kind of soul and fire that will win them new fans, taking them to the top of their game. Respect.

Hottest Record - Giggs - Blow Em Away

Zane Lowe | 20:42 UK time, Wednesday, 16 June 2010

Thumbnail image for giggs.jpg

Always a pleasure keeping Zane's studio full of music, and tonight with a Hottest Record from the much talked about Giggs. The Peckham rapper has a hard, real, one of a kind tale to tell, as you'll hear on his debut album 'Let Em Ave It', but this has a slightly more mainstream sound thanks to sweet vocal from Shola Ama. A unique rapper; Big Record!
Huw.

Hottest Record - M.I.A - XXXO (Jay-Z Remix)

Producer Kat | 20:32 UK time, Tuesday, 15 June 2010

MIA.jpg

Yep. A solid turn from Jay on this carefully constructed pop moment that will feature on an otherwise typically versatile new album from M.I.A. It doesn't feel like a favour and she doesn't seem out of her depth. Testament to her standing as an artist

Hottest Record - M.I.A - Steppin Up

Zane Lowe | 20:03 UK time, Thursday, 10 June 2010

MIA.jpg

Tonight's hottest record 'Steppin' Up' from MIA is pure, undilututed, intenisity. A terrifying descent into sonic noise originality. Sorry, I'm struggling here. Amazing tho.

Hottest Record - Plan B - Prayin (Breakage Remix)

Zane Lowe | 20:26 UK time, Wednesday, 9 June 2010

planb.jpg

Plan B is riding the crest of a wave right now. Right album, right time and ready for the success that comes with that equation. Good to see him still keeping a close eye on remixes and this one is a winner. Breakage perfectly reflects the original spirit of this song but takes it into a dark club with a heavy soundsystem. Job done.

Hottest Record: Jose Gonzalez - Far Away

Zane Lowe | 20:07 UK time, Tuesday, 8 June 2010

JoseGonzales.jpg

It's common place these days, some of our worlds most gifted and credible musicians to licence music to film and games. Myself, am fine with it as long as it feels natural. But even I'm not sure how Jose Gonzales found his way onto 'Red Dead Redemption' without sounding spare. Far from it. 'Far Away' is another moving 'Jose' moment and actually makes me want to experience the song within the game. But I probably won't...

Hottest Record - Example - Won't Believe The Fools

Zane Lowe | 20:42 UK time, Wednesday, 2 June 2010

Thumbnail image for example1009.jpg

Example's forthcoming album is full of hits you have already heard, so it's nice to get the album closer 'Won't Believe The Fools' as tonight's hottest record. Example's a great *hem* example of persistence and graft and his new album ' Won't Go Quietly' should cement his status as one of this year's Hip-Pop stars.

Hottest Record - WTF!? & Dead Prez - It's Bigger Than Hip-Hop UK

Zane Lowe | 20:30 UK time, Tuesday, 1 June 2010

adamf.jpg
Tonights Hottest Record is a certified rap classic. Dead Prez 'Hip Hop' is Top 10. So this version started out as a re-edit by Adam F and DJ Fresh for a few DJ's and slowly took on a life of its own until now. Where we have an all new version complete with new vocals from Dead Prez and a heavy sub bass tying it all together.
