I caught two of my favourite artists Skream and Benga perform as part of Magnetic Man at Parklife Festival recently. My god it was mind-blowing. Their dubstep sound has elements of classical drum and bass/jungle and even progressive/minimal techno.

Flying Into Tokyo however is none of these, but rather a contemporary classical piece that really breathes life. Quite stunning, something to lie on your bed and listen to on a rainy day.

Something a little different for you this time. We have the famous piece Ellens dritter Gesang, more widley known as Ave Maria by Franz Schubert. This performance of the piece is done sung not by a woman but a talented young boy named Daniel Perret. I spent a good hour today listening to different versions and this one comes from an unlikely location- a video game soundtrack.

Enjoy the haunting harp arpeggios, the angelic vocals, the opera goodness.
