Duke Dumont/A*M*E “Need U (100%)” (Blasé Boys Club)

Anthem alert: producer Dumont and vocalist A*M*E make merry with a chunky bass boom and classic Ninties’ house trimmings.

Johnny Marr “The Messenger” (Warner Bros)

Look, he doesn’t need Moz, right? Marr’s long-come solo debut album hits all the right spots with superb guitarmospherics.

Various “Acid – Mysterons Invade the Jackin’ Zone” (Soul Jazz)

Heavyweight compilation of futuristic Chicago acid from Larry Heard, DJ Pierre, Marshall Jefferson, Phuture (“Slam” below) and many more.

Mano Le Tough “Changing Days” (Permanent Vacation)

Debut album from Greystones’ producer Niall Mannion is a sleek, soulful, warm-hearted, fascinating affair.

Blur “Tender” (Food)

Hands up who wants to see Blur play this one live in 2013?
