It's a quality effort from a band that have, up til now, made no real mark in the remix world. And it gets us excited for the forthcmng new album due out in the summer(??)

Hottest Record - The Bullitts - World Inside Your Rainbow

Zane Lowe | 19:27 UK time, Monday, 25 June 2012

It's hard to put a handle on a project like The Bullitts. When you look at it on paper, spaghetti western themed rap record morphs in to screenplay by way of car chase themed youtube mini mixes, it seems vastly ambitious. And it is, but the music is timeless and keeps it firmly grounded in a space everyone can relate to.

Hottest Record - Plan B - Lost My Way (Nu:Tone Remix)

Zane Lowe | 19:25 UK time, Monday, 18 June 2012

Plan B

At this stage Plan B could ask almost anyone to remix his original songs, so it is with the greatest respect that he secures a Nu:Tone remix which gives lost my way that timeless jungle sound. To great effect.

Today's interview with Billy Corgan found the artist in an honest, open and uncompromising mood, which seems to be common of late and motivated by the strong return of The Smashing Pumpkins and the new album Oceania. For the full feature tune in on Monday from 7pm.

Zane Lowe | 19:26 UK time, Tuesday, 12 June 2012

It's been a long and explorative journey for Hadouken! but tonight's Hottest Record sounds like they have found their natural home. Their position in bass culture is unique, bringing both the live element and credibility in the electronic music field together to create something unique in Bad Signal.

Hottest Record - Passion Pit - I'll Be Alright

Zane Lowe | 19:25 UK time, Monday, 11 June 2012

Passion Pit

Weird to think that on their second album Passion Pit have become such a pronounced influence on electronic music. But they have. One run through tonight's Hottest Record 'I'll Be Alright' and you are reminded just where a lot of today's contemporary producers got their "cut and paste" approach from. Evolve with the new breed and give credit where credit is due. Passion Pit are the nuts.

Hottest Record - Caspa - War

Zane Lowe | 20:24 UK time, Thursday, 7 June 2012

Dubstep pioneer and dub police founder and CEO, Caspa has been hard at work in the lab conjuring up original goodness and his first big release in some time is testament to that. A beat worthy of the legendary Keith Flint seals this collaboration which is a bona fide Hottest Record.

Zane Lowe | 20:51 UK time, Wednesday, 6 June 2012

In the wake of Rudimental's #1 success with Feel The Love, Netsky farms his own plot for the summer with his new record love has gone. More than Hottest Record, this is a worthy addition to your summer playlist and may bring chart success to Netsky over the coming months.

We Are The Ocean are BACK & have made a massive jump since the last record. Talking to Liam before the show it feels like he (and the band) are in positive spirits after a turbulant week with Dan (co-lead singer) leaving the band. Easlily the best thing the band have ever done. LISTEN.

Captain's blog 618, artist Lucy Rose, composition Lines. What might appear to some as a quirky and off beat endeavour By Lucy Rose is in fact a warm and welcoming return and my favourite (for what it's worth) release of hers to date. Much to look forward to on the forthcoming new album Like I Used To.
