With his motto "if it's cool, I'll play it", Huey plays an eclectic mix of the best music from the past six decades, rock, rap, disco, soul and Latino.

This week, he meets Jes Shaw and James Ford aka Simian Mobile Disco. An offshoot of the band Simian, Jes and James started off playing electronic party music at gig after-parties eventually striking out as DJs, re-mixers and producers following the big Justice hit remix of the Simian tune Never Be Alone (We Are Your Friends).

Their debut album, the Mercury-nominated Attack Decay Sustain Release, captured a moment when indie music dashed back to the dancefloor and embraced electro. Ford is also a highly sought-after producer, who's worked with The Klaxons, Arctic Moneys and more recently Peaches though he's back in SMD mode with new single Audacity of Huge and the release of their second album this month.

Plus legendary producer Arthur Baker trawls his record collection for some rare vinyl and listeners suggest their Sunday chill-out jams in Slack Sabbath.
