Dermot has live music from Gallic duo Air and the American electronic band Passion Pit, while style guru Gok Wan joins him in the studio and shares his favourite records.

For their latest and sixth album, Love 2, Jean-Benoit Dunckel and Nicolas Godin dispensed with producers and built their own studio, where they spent the better part of a year with drummer Joey Waronker. Some of the album's rockier tracks provide a fresh contrast to earlier, more minimalist recordings, on which drums were barely evident.

Passion Pit formed in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 2007 and released their first LP earlier this year. Having recently embarked on a tour that takes in America, Europe and Japan, the band have declared their desire to "play every single stage in the milky way".
