Yuck - 'Glow & Behold'

When Yuck released their self-titled debut album back in 2011, things took off quickly for the London-based five-piece.

Daniel Avery - 'Drone Logic'

Peckham-based producer Daniel Avery has had more big-ups in the last year than haircuts, with electronic luminaries such as The Chemical Brothers and Richie Hawtin saluting his offbeat releases.

Sleigh Bells - 'Bitter Rivals'

Back in 2011, Nicolas Jaar was about as hyped as a non-commercial producer can get, thanks mainly to a deep and innovative album, ‘Space Is Only Noise’.
