Matt Helders will helm the next edition of the series, due in October.
If it seems ridiculous to add Helders among the likes of Fatboy Slim, Groove Armada and Lindstrøm, it might be helpful to know that Helders was also a DJ in his youth, and recently playing at Ibiza Rocks and Field Day. What's more Helders is a producer, crafting remixes for artists such as Roots Manuva, We Are Scientists and Duran Duran. But enough of the justifications: How does it sound?
Looking at the track selection, we're thinking it's about as diverse as the artists that Helders has remixed. Hip-hop, soul, rock & roll, Modeselektor, Goblin? This is definitely a compilation for the moments after the club where you've heard the same genre for six hours straight.
In addition to the previously released material, Helders also includes two notable goodies for Monkeys fans. First up is a cover of Livin' Joy's "Dreamer," which features Nesreen Shah on vocals. The second, Monkey frontman Alex Turner reads us a nighttime story to put us to bed called, "A Choice of Three."
