Daithi “In Flight” (Sony Ireland)

Action-packed debut album from the west coast dancefloor maestro. Contains fiddle, which a good thing. “Have to Go” from the album below

Taylor McFerrin “Early Riser” (Brainfeeder)

Jazz is a feeling on the Brooklyn-based producer’s striking album for Flying Lotus’ label.

Jetta “Crescendo” (Polydor)

Infectious summer jam from the Liverpool singer with production buzz from Pharrell Williams

The Roots “…and then you shoot your cousin…” (Def Jam)

Bracing and compelling 11th album from the hardest working crew in hip-hop.

Baba Stiltz “Crypt” (Studio Barnhus)

Gloriously evocative house charmer from the former Swedish ballet dancer.
