Dance music both surprising and expected, from whichever spheres take our pick.
D/R/U/G/S "make an awesome racket. The duo deal in club music, but with an organic, spacey bent. Their tracks manage to be both languid and dynamic: songs that reach high but stretch out slowly" - The Fader
CYMBALS make "unique Art Pop...The end product is one that has a futuristic outlook, but the band still name check Post Punk legends Talking Heads in interview and take points of reference from the 19th century." - Dummy
YAAKS are "bright, tropic-tinged electronic pop, with woahohohaohhhh vocals and cheeky little shakes as made popular by Friendly Fires and Foals in their pre-beard period." - Neu
Moshi Moshi are a "small London-based independent record label that has released music by bands such as The Rakes, Bloc Party, Hot Chip, Hot Club De Paris, Kate Nash, Junkboy, Architecture in Helsinki, Tilly and the Wall, Slow Club, Yeti, and Au Revoir Simone."
