1 – Academic Extended Mix – New Order – Finds its groove and loops it forever – C

2 – Beautiful People – Mark Pritchard – Thom Yorke sounds great here, and the song has an autumnal pull to it, a quite quiet disquiet – B+

3 – Fiction – Kygo, Tom Odell – I love Tom’s soulful vocal but the song is a major bummer, with a chorus that should hook but doesn’t – C+

4 – Hear Me Now – 3!OH3! – business as usual speed rap funniness with two great samples – B

7 – New Ogi – Jessy Lanza – Electronic singer songwriter plays table pong – B-

8 – Flake – Jameszoo – experimental electronica with no middle to speak of – C+

9 – Middle – DJ Snake, Bipolar Sunshine – Already a hit in the UK, but not Snake’s defining moment now is it? – C+
