We take you on a guided tour of the best, the good, and the quite good's of the week
In the modern music industry that we live in today it seems like it’s now a “thing” that there’s one big release each week and the others are just, really, the others. Luckily, Marshmello and Anne-Marie have come in the last minute to fill the hole as this week’s “big one”.
Featured Track: Marshmello & Anne-Marie – FRIENDS
Any song that is titled in all capital letters is immediately cool, so Marshmello and Anne-Marie (an unlikely coupling) have already won on that front. The meaning of the song is revealed in the first 15 seconds, repeated multiple times during the show and is literally spelt out half way through - Anne-Marie is only FRIENDS with you.
The song is a banger, if not only a bit too safe. Don’t get us wrong, we love a bit of Anne-Marie, but like someone we once knew called Anne-Marie, we…

Elon Musk seems vindicated after his Falcon Heavy rocket successfully launched a Tesla into space to the tune of David Bowie’s greatest hits.
The new rocket is effectively three Falcon 9’s strapped together, and is the second most powerful rocket available; with its re-usable thrusters it seems to be a giant step for mankind’s space exploration ambitions.
But, is this a new era of space travel? In this segment of his show, Matt looks at the history of space exploration from the ‘Space Race’ to today, and he assesses Elon’s desire for humankind to ascend – quiet literally – to becoming an interstellar species.

Migos new project 'Culture II' is out everywhere now - Myles picks his top tracks from the album...
When Migos dropped their highly anticipated project ‘Culture II’ nobody could have expected that we would be wowed with a whopping 24 tracks!
It’s been a year since the North Atlanta trio released their big debut commercial album – ‘Culture’ – off the success from ‘Bad & Boujee (feat. Lil Uzi Vert)’. The dope record had 9 less tracks than ‘Culture II’ but apart from a few songs the project was on heavy rotation throughout 2017. Let’s also not forget the other collaborative projects Migos were involved in (e.g. Quavo X Travis Scott’s ‘Huncho Jack’, Metro Boomin X 21 Savage & Offset ‘Without Warning’ & the Quality Control Album.
The main purpose why I co-signed most of the tracks on these projects was the rappers flow on the tracks & the beat which usually had a mad energy which made you bop your head, regardless of what mood…
