The first sample from Wicklow's Adebisi Shank second album This Is The Second Album Of A Band Called Adebisi Shank, International Dreambeat is pure rainbow rock made of polychromatic guitars and sunbeam rhythms. The album is out on August 20.

Clare Maguire

Described as a "big-voiced Birmingham belter" by Dublin blogger The Bubble Boy, Clare Maguire certainly has soulful chops. Check out her new single , Strangest Thing, as recommended by Neon Gold. One to watch.

The Knocks

This NYC producer duo started off with remixes of The Temper Trap, Ellie Goulding, Katy Perry (right) and Passion Pit. Now making original tracks, their sound is pop aimed at the dancefloor with a strong emphasis on electro fun.
