ELDERBROOK:

At the heart of everything Elderbrook releases is fantastic songwriting. Sure, the Grammy nominated artist is an astute producer, but beneath the shimmering sonics lies a complex musical engine.

Spending months on each song, Elderbrook will tinker with the machinery, making sure everything is perfect before its release.

Following up the sucess of November's 'Old Friend' EP (regular spins on the Clash office stereo) Elderbrook headed out to Los Angeles and West Coast of California.

New single 'How Do You' was recorded in L.A during sessions and time spent with Diplo who adds production credits to the track.

An upbeat horn riff drives the locomotive combined with force of Elderbrook's emotionally charged lyrics it's heading right down the West Coast highway into the strip.

Soon heading back out on European and North American tour for the latter half of the year, this is a rare chance to catch the one man summer tornado in intimate settings.

Tune in now to 'How Do You'.

EL TRAIN

Dynamic Brighton producer El. Train's work is steeped in hip-hop lore but with a much broader awareness of club culture, El. Train's music is about letting opposites connect.

Working with a huge range of collaborators, his energetic but intensely melodic sound has an open sensibility while remaining devoutly challenging. Debut album 'Puzzles' arrives this summer, with new single 'Tell Me Where' making waves.

Opening Jamz Supernova's show upon release, it pits lush, colour-laden synths against some bombastic hip-hop influences.

He explains: "Funny story with this track is it actually started as a remix of a completely different track..."

"I had the rough idea that I had worked on for the remix but it sounded to me like something was missing. A couple of days later I was in the studio with Clem working on some tracks, she heard the instrumental and immediately started writing to it. The idea came together pretty quickly and we’d pretty much finished the track that day. Once we had the track we all knew it was the single we had been waiting on to announce the album!"

Tune in now.
