Music: No Problem by Jamaica * *

Formerly known as Poney Poney, Jamaica are French duo Antoine Hilaire and Flo Lyonnet. Their brand of sleek pop is not too dissimilar to the sort mined by those other Paris champions Daft Punk and Phoenix, but there the similarities do end.

No Problem is a superficial album, one whose effervescent sound does not stand up to scrutiny. Scratch under the surface of these upbeat anthems and there's little to get excited about. As background club music, songs such as I Think I Like U 2 and By The Numbers have their merits, yet most of the numbers lack the X factor that make Kylie's disco tunes worm their way into your brain.

Burn it: I Think I Like U 2
