Thank you, internet. Breakbot opened for Chromeo last year. He played a load of sweet funky disco, then lashed out a load of Chromeo and Daft Punk before the Chromeo gig. Genius. Other sets from Breakbot here and Chromeo here. Get in, comma, down:

Four Tet on Rinse FM - Hessle Audio

Pearson Sound back to back with Four Tet on Rinse FM last Thursday. I saw Four Tet in France a couple of weeks ago and he played an extraordinarily jazzy set, I was quite upset. I figured they wouldn't have much truck with that on Rinse, and I was right. No jazz, just beats. Quite a lot of beats, actually. Go here to listen/ download:

Lil'Dave & The Drifter: Body and Soul set

Staying in never felt so good. 

This is Lil'Dave and The Drifter's mix from the Saturday at Body and Soul. An amazing set, delighted I got to hear it live, even more delighted they had the foresight to record it and I get to listen again.

I've put the set in my dropbox, click here for a download link.

Like that's not good enough, one of the tunes that is coming up as unknown above is a remix of Metronomy's 'She Wants' - Mark played it and it was one of my highlights of the whole festival. It's an unbelievable tune. I emailed him about it and you can get a FREE download of it here. Get in:
