It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of BBC Radio 1 and their Live Lounge sessions. They take the top artists of the moment and give them a new / old / classic / fun song to cover. The results are always interesting and sometimes better than the original.

It spawned some of favourite covers, including Kygo and Parson’ James spin on Tove Lo’s ‘Habits’, The Maccabees, take on ‘Lean On’ by Major Lazer,  Chvrches take on Justin Timberlake’s ‘Cry Me A River’, Ed Sheeran with an old classic by Christina Aguilera, with ‘Dirrty’ and Hozier taking on Ariana Grande’s ‘Problem’.

Jack Garratt recently graced the live lounge and put his spin on ‘Latch’ by Disclosure, the result was stripped down, mesmerising and utterly haunting.

Which do you prefer?

Aah, The Chainsmokers, I stumbled upon them when they released their remix of ‘Medicine’ by Daughter years ago and have been hooked ever since.

Their latest offering features fellow DJs Tritonal and magical vocals by Emily Warren. It’s typical of their usual style with heavy drops, melodic undertone and beat so infectious, it is impossible not to love.

It is yet another amazing song from my favourites. It has been so great to follow all of their incredible offerings and I can’t wait for the next one!

Is it just me or is it slowly starting to feel like summer? I’m not sure if it because festival season is starting, or it’s just getting brighter and warmer but it is definitely on it’s way.

I recently stumbled upon this majestic mashup of Avicii and Daft Punk, with a twist by Dave Edwards who put his unique spin on it.

It is fun, fresh and has got me in the summer mood. You will love it too.
