British duo Josienne Clarke & Ben Walker have risen to star status lately on the English acoustic scene, earning last year’s Best Duo award from the BBC in their Folk Awards.
On Friday 4 March, Clarke & Walker will release a new EP, Through The Clouds, via Rough Trade / Remote Control Records, featuring a handful of the best tracks from their small catalogue, rearranged anew.

Danish producer and singer Anders Rhedin aka Dinner has shared his video for ‘Turn Me On’. The track comes fromhis debut albumPsychic Lovers, out Friday 1 April via Captured Tracks / Remote Control Records.
“Dinner’s music is about parties. And women. Late nights and early mornings in strange cities. But mainly it’s about magic and the communion with spirits,” Dinner says. “It’s like sexual Christian rock, really. But with out all the Christianity.”
MssingNo returns with the ‘Fones’ EP. Out now, the EP is the London artist’s debut release for XL Recordings.
MssingNo first came to prominence in 2013 with the release of his debut ‘MssingNo’ EP on Goon Club Allstars. The EP immediately sent a seismic shock through the underground electronic music scene, especially EP track ‘XE2’ which became one of the year’s defining anthems and was named FACT magazine’s ‘track of the year’.
Listen to single ‘Scope’ below:
The EP follows a series of remixes of the likes of Cashmere Cat & Ariana Grande and Shura, plus collaborations with artists such as Katy B (on her forthcoming Honey album.)
Overflowing with trademark anthemic, ultra-melodic hooks, the Fones EP is a further pointer towards MssingNo’s bright future. One track – Inta – was first featured on XL Recordings’ 2015 XL Chapter VI compilation album, while ‘Scope’ premiered earlier this week by Radio 1’s Annie Mac.
Nordic four-piece Liima have premiered the video for their debut single ‘Amerika’, from their forthcoming album ‘ii’, out on March 18.
The short film was directed by Olivier Groulx and filmed on America’s west coast in Palmdale, CA. It was shot entirely on smart phones and features all four members of Liima.
The Finnish word for ‘glue’, Liima was formed by Finnish percussionist Tatu Rönkkö plus Mads Brauer, Casper Clausen and Rasmus Stolberg of Danish act Efterklang.
Ii features songs written in Finland, Berlin, Istanbul and Madeira during four week-long residencies, each place influencing the sound, sometimes literally through field recording and sampling. Every residency ended with a live concert, performing the freshly written songs in front of an audience.
Dinner is Danish producer and singer Anders Rhedin. He leads a nomadic existence, dividing his time between Los Angeles, Copenhagen and Berlin. So far, Dinner has 3 EPs and a guided hypnosis tape under his belt.
Dinner is excited to announce the release of his debut albumPsychic Lovers, out Friday 1 April via Captured Tracks / Remote Control Records. He has also unveiled the first taste of the release, the synth-laden dance track ‘Turn Me On.’
“Dinner‘s music is about parties. And women. Late nights and early mornings in strange cities. But mainly it’s about magic and the communion with spirits,”Dinner says. “It’s like sexual Christian rock, really. But with out all the Christianity.”
