Run the Jewels “Run the Jewels” (Fool’s Gold)

State of the art hard-chaw hip-hop from Killer Mike and El-P, the MCs behind two of 2012’s best albums.

Janelle Monae “Dance Apocalyptic” (Atlantic)

Tantalising Monae-tastic freak-out from forthcoming second album “The Electric Lady”

Klangkarussell “Sonnentanz” (Stil Vor Talent)

Magical, dancefloor-captivating groove from the Austrian duo.

Congo Natty “Jungle Revolution” (Big Dada)

Booming big-speaker junglist breaks and Rasta chants from Michael West and crew

These New Puritans “Field Of Reeds” (Infectious)

Hugely impressive third album full of inventive sounds, subtle experimental and emotional resonance.
