The world might be locked down, but that hasn’t stopped artists’ creative juices flowing. This mega list of new additions to your workday playlist is evidence of that!

Liberty X found Australian chart success in 2002 thanks to ‘Just a Little’. Melbourne-based DJ-producer John Course is hoping for something similar with his cover of the ARIA #4 hit. Coursey’s been a staple of the Melbourne scene for years and continues to entertain the masses thanks to his weekly sets streamed from home. We reckon you’ll enjoy the original’s hooks mixed with some sexy house sounds.

In the good old days, we were excited that Dami Im would be part of Eurovision: Australia Decides in 2021. Now that there won’t be a national final next year thanks to COVID-19, Dami’s entry has been released as a single. ‘Paper Dragon’ is an uplifting, fun pop song that will bring some colour to your workday. The slight electronic touches give us a ‘Gladiator’ feel, and we’re hoping there’s a throwback to Dami’s big pop days when she releases her new album next year.

Sam Smith has finally revealed the title and release date of their third studio album. Love Goes is due on 30 October, and the British singer-songwriter’s next single from it is ‘Diamonds’. Sam brings out the funk for this uplifting track, a ‘defiant tale of love lived without regret’. We reckon you’ll love it.

American production trio Cheat Codes had great success with their debut single, ‘No Promises’, which went platinum in over 15 countries. While we wait for Trevor Dahl, Matthew Russell and Kevin Ford to release their debut album, they’ve teamed up with Aussie singer-songwriter CXLOE for ‘Between Our Hearts’. This catchy ditty is all about maintaining a relationship while physically apart, and it’s made for CXLOE’s amazing vocals.

British DJ-producer 220 Kid launched himself onto the scene last year with ‘Don’t Need Love’. He’s returned with Northern Irish singer-songwriter JC Stewart for a song about some big nights in LA. ‘Too Many Nights’ is the kind of banger that is made for a party in that American city, and its deep bass line makes itself known alongside a very catchy hook.

We’re following Tyron Hapi since he moved to his current label in 2017, and we’ve been pleased by what we’ve been hearing. The latest from the Melbourne-based DJ-producer is ‘Lonely Heart’. American singer Sam Bruno provides the vocal, while Swedish producer SUD lends a hand to bring some extra polish to this bop.

It’s a classic sound for the third single from Delta Goodrem‘s forthcoming sixth album. ‘Solid Gold’ evokes memories of Fleetwood Mac with its breezy piano, jaunty guitar and expressive percussion. Delta wants this to be an ‘uplifting and empowering message reminding someone who has taken you for granted of your worth and strength’, and we reckon you’ll be smiling throughout.

Danish singer-songwriter Jon Nørgaard won the Danish version of Popstars in 2002. He had some success following the win, but then lay low and decided to start up a music label. It is now one of the largest in Denmark and Jon has returned to the singing fold as Tvilling. ‘Dum Dum Dum’ might have a familiar sound to it – the track contains a sample of Swedish artist Meja’s 1997 hit ‘All ‘Bout the Money’ – and is all about the pitfalls of worshipping material things.

Dutch duo Lucas & Steve have delivered an earworm with their latest single. Featuring the lush vocals of Norwegian singer Alida, ‘Another Life’ is a singalong bop with a chorus that we think will be playing on repeat in your head.

Queer Finnish singer-songwriter Saara Aalto is probably best known to JOY listeners as Finland’s 2018 S&M-loving Eurovision contestant. She is much better known in the UK, where she came second on The X Factor and Dancing on Ice. To celebrate Pride Month, Saara teamed up with British drag performer Baga Chipz for a banger of a single. While Baga had some viral top 10 success with Break Up (Bye Bye) as part of The Frock Destroyers on RuPaul’s Drag Race UK, she’s done much betta with ‘When the Sun Goes Down’. We reckon this’ll bring a smile to your face.

Turn us on while you work and get your ears around these tunes fresh to weekdays.

Five-member British group Steps have arrived to save 2020 with a brand-new album, which is due on 27 November. Written by Sia, ‘What the Future Holds’ is the title track and sees Claire, Faye, Lee, Lisa, and out-and-proud H turn the pop banger dial up to 10. It’s great to have them back to bring some fun to our lives.

As we continue to live in iso, needing to feel the love of those around us is becoming more important. French DJ-producer David Guetta is calling for the world to band together in ‘Let’s Love’, along with bisexual Aussie singer-songwriter Sia. The frequent collaborators have produced a big track with a driving beat and a memorable chorus that we reckon you’ll love.

Released on Global Suicide Prevention Day, or R U OK? Day for us Aussies, ‘OK Not to Be OK’ is a song to start the conversation. American producer Marshmello and queer singer-songwriter Demi Lovato want us to know that not feeling right is all right and there’s always someone around to help. If you need some help with things going on around you, head to joy.org.au/support.

Ahead of Clean Bandit‘s third studio album later this year comes ‘Tick Tock’, featuring British singer Mabel. The trademark sound of strings mark this as a Clean Bandit orchestration, and Mabel’s vocals give it an extra layer of polish. The original includes something from American rapper 24kGoldn, but we’ve decided to let the Brits shine on their own.

Hailing from the NSW Central Coast, Un-Ti had their big break with ‘Caught Up’ in 2018. Tens of millions of streams and a few singles later, Ben, Lachie and Reid have dropped ‘Stay’. The boys have delivered a five-star-rated banger with this one, giving you multiple opportunities to show off your ability to hold a note as you sing along. We reckon it’ll stay in your head for days.

Tate McRae made a mark when she was the first Canuck to reach the final of the American version of So You Think You Can Dance at the age of 13. Now 17, the singer-songwriter has continued the streak of success thanks to her new single, ‘you broke me first’, which was huge on TikTok and peaked at #15 on the Australian chart. German DJ Luca Schreiner has reworked the track to give it a dance edge, making it perfect for your workday.

It’s time to get funky with Spanish DJ-producers David Penn and KPD. They’ve pulled out all the disco tricks for ‘Jerkin”, creating an infectiously camp dance track. We think you’ll be jiving, shuffling and hustling when this blasts from your speakers.

We love a touch of RnB, and Alicia Keys delivers. ‘Love Looks Better’ is made for an arena performance, with drums, claps and singalongs galore to get the crowd pumped. It’s the last instant-grat track from the American singer’s self-titled album due this Friday, and the feel-good bop that we need right now. Share the love and sway along.

While other stations turn back time in their playlists, we’re going full steam ahead with bringing you the newest tracks from around the world.

Queen Agnes is back with a new single designed to bring some disco love to your life. ‘Fingers Crossed’ comes after the Swedish singer-songwriter spent a year travelling around the US, Mexico, Europe and northern Thailand finding herself. With a pop banger like this, we have our fingers crossed for a mega album in the near future.

Sydney-based bisexual singer-songwriter Starley is releasing her debut album, One of One, on 25 September. ‘Let Me In’, the lead single from the album, is a love song that explores second chances after a break-up. We’ve gone with the soon-to-be released remix version to bring it to life for your workday.

After coming home to Australia from Bali, Rave Radio were stuck in quarantine. The Gold Coast DJ-production duo had a hard time being locked up in their hotel room missing all the people they loved, so they decided to write a song about it. ‘I’m Okay’ is an expression of those feelings, and it shines thanks to Dutch singer Amanda Collis.

Norwegian singer-songwriter DAGNY has taken the raw emotions of a break-up and made them into a lush pop song. ‘It’s Only a Heartbreak’ is the latest single from her forthcoming album, Strangers / Lovers, and it features bouncy electronics and jittering percussion to draw you in. We reckon you’ll be bopping along.

She’s a dancer, singer, songwriter and producer, and loves to save the insects that are close to drowning in her pool. Is there nothing that Chase Zera can’t do? The Sydney-based artist has released her second major-label single, ‘Saving Bugs’, and it’s a funky bop made to keep you on your toes and a perfect song to dance to while working at home.

Lockdown has brought three of Melbourne’s most talented artists together to form botwrld. The mystery producer and two vocalists have delivered their debut collaboration, ‘Need You Here’, and it’s being heralded as an anthem for 2020. They don’t want us to Noah who they are, but after listening we reckon Hue’ll want to find out and Jamo along with them.

Listen carefully: Sigala has pinched a bit of MGMT’s 2009 ‘Time to Pretend’ in his newest release! Featuring James Arthur‘s smooth vocals, ‘Lasting Lover’ is the type of singalong dance track we expect from the British producer. However, we can’t give Sigala all the love, because the song was originally written by Lewis Capaldi. It’s a big combo and we reckon you’ll enjoy it.

German producer Purple Disco Machine has over 250 million streams across his works to date and has found fans galore with his remixes of tracks by Dua Lipa, Mark Ronson, Robert Surace, Foals, Sir Elton John and Lady Gaga. We’ll soon be gifted his second album, but in the meantime we can enjoy ‘Hypnotized’. British band Sophie and the Giants join the disco fun and we think you should too.

With winter coming to a close and Melbourne edging ever closer to the end of lockdown, we’re celebrating with these brand-new releases fresh to the playlist.

We start with a bang thanks to K-pop’s most famous group. ‘Dynamite’ is the first English-language single for BTS and had over 100 million streams in its first 24 hours of release after 21 August. RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Park Jimin, V and Jung Kook have over 80 million followers across social media, and were the first Korean artists to achieve gold certification in Australia. If you want big, this is it!

Dreams keep coming true for queer Aussie singer Troye Sivan. His latest EP is out, along with its title single. ‘In a Dream’ is a bit of uptempo love from Troye that we reckon you’ll lap up.

Another title track from a new EP lands in the mix courtesy of queer Aussie singer-songwriter Wafia. She’s found the positives from the end of a relationship and explores them in ‘Good Things’. It’s a bop that’s made for singing along to.

Celia Pavey aka Vera Blue has broken into the American market with her recent signing to Republic Records. To celebrate, she’s released ‘Lie to Me’. It’s already taken Triple J by storm, and we reckon you’ll be loving it too.

We’re treated to a house banger this week from DJ-producer JaySounds and singer-songwriter Bianca. The Sydney-based pair have teamed up for ‘Control’, which has a thumping bass line, a bouncy midline and sexy vocals. It’s made for the club, so find an excuse to dance!

Sydney duo Pink Zinc have released their second single, featuring the writing and singing talent of one of our favourites in BOI. ‘Weapon’ brings together everything we love about dance music – keys, singalong vocals, funky beats and a surprising bridge. It’s a banger!

English singer-songwriter Michael Nelson aka BANNERS has been making music since 2015. In 2017, he released ‘Someone to You’. Fast forward to 2020 and the song has ended up in American Idol, Love, Victor and a commercial for an American phone company. It’s reminiscent of 2000s Aussie pop-rock, with a touch of Mumford, and we’re here for it.

Over the last few weeks, Europe has gone crazy for ‘Heads Shoulders Knees & Toes’ from French duo Ofenbach, German duo Quarterhead and American singer-songwriter Norma Jean Martine. It’s not the children’s rhyme you might be familiar with, but it’s certainly just as catchy. One listen and we reckon you’ll be feeling it from head to toe.

Keep dancing with German DJ-production duo VIZE and their latest, ‘Never Let Me Down’. The track features British singer Tom Gregory and has already been streamed over 73 million times across the world. Don’t be surprised if you’re singing “Down-down-duh-duh-duh-duh-down-down” on repeat after hearing this one.

Back in 2013, Melbourne-based producer Steen James debuted as StrikeForce and made his radio debut with JOY legends Chris and Cam. His first release, ‘One Day at a Time’, was a huge hit and became a JOY favourite. The song has been reworked by a few production legends, including out-and-proud Parralox, who you might know better as John Von-Ahlen from Neon Nights. It overflows with disco and is a ready-made elixir for the shitshow that has been 2020.

Let us lift you up with Melbourne’s most uplifting music mix, which now includes these bangers and bops for your listening pleasure.

Under the secrecy of lockdown, Dua Lipa enlisted queer DJ-producer The Blessed Madonna to remix her second album. Club Future Nostalgia will be revealed on 28 August, with its first banger dropping into the playlist this week. The club rework of Levitating features Madonna and Missy Elliott and delivers an electro-synth track that we think you’ll be all over.

We’ve been waiting to see what Miley Cyrus had lined up for 2020 and we’ve finally been rewarded for our patience. Midnight Sky has the feel of an 80s synth-pop hit, with Miley’s recognisable vocals floating alongside the driving click track. We reckon you’ll be thankful for the pansexual singer’s musical offering.

HILDAJessica Mauboy‘s fourth studio album, was written about the Aussie singer-songwriter’s family and dedicated to her grandmother. The final single release from the ARIA #1 album is ‘Butterfly’, created as a dedication to Jess’s parents for what they’ve taught her about love. It might be a ballad, but it’s made for bopping to.

Times were different in 1997: Tasmania decriminalised homosexuality, The Castle shone a spotlight on suburbia and digital TV got its first trial. The Cardigans also got to the #11 spot on the ARIA chart with ‘Lovefool’. German production duo twocolors have taken the 1997 hit and made it their own with an electro-house rework. You’ll know the words, and we think you’ll be surprised by the sound.

Dolly Parton pleaded for Jolene not to take her man back in the 70s and now RAYE is asking, Natalie Don’t. The British singer-songwriter was introduced to Australian audiences thanks to her work with Jax Jones in ‘You Don’t Know Me’ and recently with Regard in ‘Secrets’. This new single is the second from her forthcoming fifth EP, Her Heart Beats in 4/4, and is the bop you never knew you needed.

For the past year, Swedish singer-songwriter Michel Young has been working with Jonas von der Burg, who is best known for making September a household name. They’ve continued to churn out the bops, and Michel’s latest release is no exception. ‘Darling’ is everything you’d expect from Swedish-produced pop, and we’re certainly not complaining.

It’s taken two years for Jubël‘s cover of Toploader’s 2000 hit (itself a cover of King Harvest’s 1972 release) to make waves, but thankfully it’s finally here. Sebastian Atas and Victor Sjöström, along with singer NEIMY, had success with ‘Dancing in the Moonlight’ in their native Sweden back in 2018. Somehow it took hold in the UK this year, charting like crazy across radio, streaming and physical sales. It’s made for summer and is sure to be your go-to when we’re able to dance together all night long soon.

There are bangers and bops galore this week to bring a lift to your workday.

Musical throwbacks are big right now, with everyone wanting to hear something they know. Melbourne’s L’Tric and Chloe Wilson throw it right back to 1976 with a remake of a Boney M classic. ‘Sunny’ was developed over the course of the last Aussie summer and it’s now peeking through the winter clouds to bring some fun to your day.

‘Energy’ has been hitting home runs since its release a couple of months ago, climbing to the #1 spot on the ARIA Club chart. Melbourne-based producer Stace Cadet created the banger along with Sydney’s KLP, and it’s now got a remix made for radio. Mell Hall, best known to our communities as one of Poof Doof’s favourite DJs, gives the track a disco twist and turns it into a dance-floor-ready bop. Once this one strikes, we reckon you won’t be able to stop dancing.

Sydney’s St. Christoph & Shaade have described themselves as “Australia’s most iconic duo”, combining soulful luxury with a hip-hop feel. Their second single is ‘Callin”, a cool ditty that would make the perfect soundtrack for a top-down convertible drive along the beach. It’s something a little different for the mix, but we think you’ll groove along.

British band BLOXX formed in 2016 and soon caught our attention with Your Boyfriend in 2017. Fronted by queer singer Fee Booth, the band will release their debut album, Lie Out Loud, later this week and the third single from it is ‘Off My Soul’. It’s a song about sex and love and is a rock-pop bop that we think you’ll get excited over.

If you’re bubbling with energy, ‘Feels in My Body’ is made for you. Delivered with a punch by Swedish duo Icona Pop, this track aims to inspire you to share that energy with others. Best known for their 2012 hit I Love It, Caroline Hjelt and Aino Jawo hit 10 on the banger scale to get you dancing wherever you are.

Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano have the final banger ace up their sleeves this week with ‘Life After You’, made to bring a smile to your face. Featuring vocals from RANI (of Post Malone fame), the latest from the Dutch-Surinamese DJ duo is packed with summer feels and the kind of chorus you’ll want to pump your fist to as you sing it out loud.

Keep it locked on JOY for these bops to lift you out of your iso doldrums.

Yorke has been writing songs since the age of 10. All this creativity culminated in the release this year of her debut album, Liberosis, which landed the Byron Bay singer a multitude of praises. She’s just released ‘Gravity’, a “love story between an alien and a human who are struggling to exist in each other’s orbit”. This song will take you to the stars with its pulsating rhythms, catchy chorus and sonic explosions.

Boy band The Vamps have been quite successful around the world, particularly in their native Britain. They’ve achieved platinum status with eight Top 40 hits and six sold-out world tours since they formed in 2012. The boys’ fourth studio album, Cherry Blossom, is due on 16 October, but we’re being treated to a taste of it with ‘Married in Vegas’. The new single gives us the pop-rock sound that we love hearing from Bradley, James, Connor and Tristan, along with some funky keys and a riff that will play on repeat in your head.

The British girls are also getting a go, with the newest from Little Mix making the list this week. ‘Holiday’ is the latest release from the four-member group’s forthcoming sixth album and continues the musical story begun by Break Up Song. A combination of an 80s-esque bridge, the confidence of 2000s pop and a flurry of backing vocals make this one a bop that we think you’ll be appreciating.

COVID has changed many things in our lives, but it’s also taken us back to thinking about better times. British band Clean Bandit has gone back to 2014 and 1997 to put a smile on your face with a big anthemic mashup. The band’s 2014 Australian #13 bop gets thrown in with Dario G‘s 1997 hit to create ‘Real Love x Sunchyme (VIP Mashup)’. You’ll get to enjoy the vocals from queer British singer Jess Glynne too. If you need a smile on your face, we reckon this will put one there.

Back in the day, we’d wait until the wee hours of the morning before the party really started, but with Melburnians now at home, we have to find new ways to enjoy our late nights. American DJ-producer MK wants to get you dancing in your lounge room with his newest, ‘2AM’. He’s teamed up again with British singer-songwriter Carla Monroe for this house banger, and we hope it is just as successful as their last collab, 17.

Auckland-born, Sydney-based ETHAN has just dropped something new. The out-and-proud singer-songwriter is due to release his second EP later this year, and its lead single is ”Til Morning’, a track about what goes on late at night. It’s a piece of moody pop crossed with RnB, and delivers the feels in spades. We reckon you’ll be grooving along.

Kylie Minogue Say Something (LIB / BMG) Jason Derulo Take You Dancing (WMA / ATL / APG) Dua Lipa Hallucinate (WMA) Ella Henderson Take Care of You (Wilson Radio Edit) (WMA / Major Toms) DYLAN Real Love (Buzz William Remix) (BOOSHU) Isaiah Firebrace Know Me Better (SME) Rozell & Kalide ft Nick Summerfield Critical (IND) Marty Guilfoyle ft John Gibbons 1, 2 Step (HUSSLE)

Other radio stations might have found a new love for pop music recently, but we’ve been loving it for years. This week’s additions are some of the best pop and dance tracks going around right now!

The Princess of Pop is back and she’s lowering the mirror ball. Kylie‘s 15th studio album, DISCO, is set for release on 6 November and the lead single is ‘Say Something’. This is a 180 from the last album, and it’s the Kylie we’ve been praying for. Warm your dancing legs up to this one!

Speaking of dancing, American singer Jason Derulo wants to be your partner. Hopefully he’ll rip his shirt off before launching into ‘Take You Dancing’, a Latin-inspired bop that has old-school Derulo vibes to it. We reckon you’ll get the simple da-da-da-da hook stuck in your head while you snap yourself on TikTok grooving along.

Keep grooving as you jump into Studio 54, thanks to British singer Dua Lipa. The fourth single from Future Nostalgia is ‘Hallucinate’, which brings together strings, a thumping beat and Dua’s signature sound to form a disco banger. If you’ve ever wanted to see Dua Lipa in animated form, you should probably check the video out too.

Brit Ella Henderson has been loving streaming video during lockdown in the UK, having performed in gigs organised by the Mayor of London, Billboard and Gary Barlow. Since the success of her Glorious EP last year, Ella has been touring and featuring on some of the year’s biggest hits, including This is Real, We Got Love and Hold Me Close. ‘Take Care of You’ is her first solo release since the EP and it’s taken the UK by storm. We’ve gone for the Wilson remix to give it a special sparkle for your workday.

Someone surrounded by sparkles is Sydney’s DYLAN. The out-and-proud singer-songwriter shone when he was one of The 100 on Channel 7’s talent show All Together Now, and he continues to shine brightly with his new single. DYLAN wrote ‘Real Love’ about his experiences with mental abuse and his journey towards healing, noting, “It’s taken a lot of time, but I’m now at a place in my life where I’m not going to allow people to belittle me, manipulate me, and make me question my purpose and worth.” We love Buzz William’s rework of the track and we hope you do too.

The journey towards self-discovery has been a long one for Isaiah Firebrace since he won The X Factor Australia in 2016. After representing Australia at Eurovision in 2017, the Indigenous singer spent much of 2018 on a tour through regional and central Australia, sharing positive messages of support and hope for a brighter future with Indigenous schoolchildren. ‘Know Me Better’ marks a turning point in Isaiah’s career, where he feels confident about himself and his musical style. We think you’ll appreciate the newest from this most-streamed Australian Indigenous male artist.

Hans Noormets moved from his native Estonia to the hustle and bustle of LA to study music production. Working as Rozell, he met Australian DJ-producer Kalide in LA and they created ‘Critical’. This electro-house bop then headed back to Australia, where out-and-proud singer Nick Summerfield provided the vocals to finish it all off. It’s the type of track that will leave you yearning for the dance floor, but at least you can turn your radio up in the meantime!

You should definitely crank up the radio for a cover of Ciara’s 2004 Australian #2 hit, ‘1, 2 Step’, by two Irishmen. Always-shirtless fitness fanatic, radio announcer and DJ-producer Marty Guilfoyle takes the lead to transform the RnB karaoke staple into something that’s made for the club. He’s supported by John Gibbons, who is best known for his reworks of Would I Lie to You and MJ’s P.Y.T. This has got everything that makes the original great, with the addition of a very bouncy bass line. Step it out around the lounge room as you work from home.

Troye Sivan Easy (EMI) GENES Better (IND) CXLOE 12 Steps (Sandlot) Kygo & Tina Turner What’s Love Got to Do With It (SME) Illy ft G Flip Loose Ends (SME) Tommy Trash ft Thief So Long (HUSSLE) Delta Goodrem Paralyzed (SME) Jack Wins ft Francci Richard Killed Me With Love (SPINNIN)

It’s been a big week of new releases, so it’s a massive week of brand-new additions to Melbourne’s most uplifting music mix.

Troye Sivan has announced the forthcoming release of In a Dream, a six-track EP about an “emotional rollercoaster period” in the Aussie singer-songwriter’s life. Ahead of its release on 21 August comes ‘Easy’, a song written to steer a relationship back on course. This out-and-proud favourite keeps churning out the bops and this track is no exception!

Were you a fan of Maddy & Aimee driving you home on JOY? We were, and we’re even bigger fans of Maddy’s music under the guise of GENES. Now in Townsville, the out-and-proud singer-songwriter has released ‘Better’, which she wrote to lift herself up after a breakup. We reckon you’ll be feeling the love. It’s yet another pop gem for this legend and we’re here for it.

The journey from addiction to recovery is the focus of the newest release from CXLOE. The Sydney singer’s eighth single is ’12 Steps’, which sees the story of addiction being told in a very different way. While addiction seeks to mask pain, we’re reminded that there’s help just a few steps away. If you need some help yourself, head to joy.org.au/support.

Combine Tina Turner‘s 1984 #1 smash, ‘What’s Love Got to Do With It’, with the skills of Norwegian DJ-producer Kygo and you’ve got a banger. There’s not much else to say: start dancing!

Melbourne-born rapper Illy continues his journey towards an even more melodic sound with the release of ‘Loose Ends’. He teams up with out-and-proud singer G Flip to deliver a song with just the right mix of song and spoken word. Give this one a couple of listens and we think you’ll be hooked.

It’s been two years since we last heard from Aussie legend Tommy Trash. To make sure you know he’s back, Tommy’s dropped the aptly named ‘So Long’, and the classically trained musician is showing off all his melody-making skills in it. Singer-songwriter Thief (who you can thank for such bops as Jess Mauboy’s ‘Fallin’ and Guy Sebastian’s ‘Bloodstone’) delivers some smooth vocals that effortlessly weave themselves into the uplifting EDM-pop instrumental. Welcome back, Tommy!

Someone who hasn’t gone anywhere is much -oved singer-songwriter-coach-streaming-superstar Delta Goodrem. Having just finished up on another season of The Voice Australia and taking her place as the series’ longest-serving coach, Delta has dropped ‘Paralyzed’. It’s no ‘Wings’-esque shower, but it’s certainly one of Delta’s best growers. There’s no doubt you’ll be singing along to it if you head on down to one of the shows in her ‘Bridge Over Troubled Dreams’ tour next year. Keep listening and we think it’ll grow on you too.

London-based Dutch DJ-producer Jack Wins has let us know that he’s looking forward to taking a walk in the park as restrictions ease in his part of the world. While you take a walk around the block, perhaps ‘Killed Me With Love’ could be playing in your ears. It’s a slice of 90s house, wrapped up in a clap-along rhythm section, and topped off with big vocals from LA-based singer Francci Richard. We reckon it’s a banger you’ll be loving.
