The Download Chart May Shortlist
Split second analysis of this months nearly-made-it singles.
More from Bob Henderson
Tommy Sparks She’s Got Me Dancing (Island)
Ting tings alert. Big summer anthem alert. Too many alerts alert.
Runnerz I’m Lost (Champion)
Big pumping gay-in-sound-not-content dance track, this a total tops off weekend anthem (check out the GRN remix for an XXL moment).
Ironik feat. Chipmunk and Elton John Tiny Dancer (Hold Me Closer) (asylum)
One day, the entire back catalogue of Elton John will have been reworked into every urban music genre. Ironik steps up amongst the ranks of Tupac and Kanye West.
Royksopp The Girl & The Robot
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, this song is incredible.
Sam Smith When It’s Alright (Tom Novy Remix)
Glitchy minimal reworking of this soulful vocal, that will soundtrack anyone into after hours clubbing, guaranteed to be heard out in Vauxhall somewhere past 3am/before 3pm.
Kids Love Lies Count In My Head (half Tiger Remix) (Pretty)
A totally amazing remix of a shouty riot grrl track, turned into an oh-so-now punky electro number.
Rochelle Chin Up
Rave synths a go go for this months second slice of wonky pop, like a grown-up girl-fronted Hadouken.
