Alexis Taylor, Joe Godard, Owen Clarke, Al Doyle and Felix Martin have been making us dance non-stop for nearly two decades, and the list of electronic pop hits they’ve produced is long: ‘Ready for the Floor’, ‘Over and Over’, Boy from School’, ‘One Life Stand’, and so many more. For this new album they’ve come up with more fantastic songs to regale us with, such as ‘Melody of Love’, the band’s new instant classic.

Favourite Gig: Lewis Capaldi

Lewis Capaldi is seriously the musical man of the moment right now – he’s seemingly shot to fame after releasing his debut album ‘Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent‘ in May 2019. Of course, his catchy songs, including, ‘Someone You Loved’ and ‘Bruises’, incredible vocals and all-round talent are helped by the fact that he’s such a personality too.
