This young trio found fame by covering the songs of hip hop troupe Odd Future in a cool jazz stylee, eventually collaborating with Tyler, The Creator himself. They have since gone on to turn tracks by Lil B and Waka Flocka Flame into awesomely groovy post-bop jazz jams.

Bastille

Bastille released second album 'Wild World' in September 2016 (the follow-up to their hugely successful first album ‘Bad Blood’ in 2012). Hear how the record sounds live with their new 'Wild Wild World' tour and whether they can shake free from those behemoth hits of previous years.

Former Mercury Prize nommed trio released a new album 'Man Made Object' earlier this year which continued to show off their eclectic influences, ranging from Brian Eno and arcade game bleeps to Debussy and Shostakovich. Pianist Chris Illingworth, bassist Nick Blacka and drummer Rob Turner comprise this high-octane, Manchester-based trio.

Gabrielle
4/10

Gabrielle

Recommended

Hackney's premier chart diva (sorry, Leona Lewis) performs her thoroughly likeable soul-pop with deliciously smooth and creamy vocals. You'll hear fresh material alongside hits like 'Give Me a Little More Time' and 'Dreams'.

Peaches

Recommended

Electroclash provocateuse Merrill Nisker is back, delivering her notorious brand of porno-rap with jerky groovebox beats. Audience members should be prepared for simulated self-stimulation, irresistibly dirty grooves and some OTT costuming.

Oval Space , Bethnal Green Tuesday November 8 2016 - Wednesday November 9 2016
The Wytches
6/10

The Wytches

Recommended

Crunchy surf-rockers The Wytches do their doomy garage band thing in the headline slot. It may be loud, screechy and primitive, but there are some top tunes in there and they know how to rock out on stage.

Electric Ballroom , Camden Town Friday November 11 2016
The Cinematic Orchestra
7/10

The Cinematic Orchestra

Recommended

Jason Swinscoe's Ninja Tune project mixes up swoon-worthy jazz improvisation, sampled soundtrack music, film images and dance music tropes, and really cuts the mustard in a live setting.

Eventim Apollo Hammersmith , Hammersmith Thursday November 10 2016 - Friday November 11 2016
Keaton Henson
8/10

Keaton Henson

Recommended

Incredibly sad west London singer Henson suffers from debilitating stage fright, making his live appearances incredibly rare. His astonishingly raw and markedly depressing songs are bound to make you weep openly and embarrassingly.

Chet Faker

Recommended

That whole electronic soul thing you've been hearing a lot of recently? The splendidly named Chet Faker was ahead of the curve, releasing a woozy, bass-tinged, jazz-inflected, organ-based take on Blackstreet's 'No Diggity' way back in 2011. He has since paired up with Flume and Marcus Marr and toured extensively bringing an energetic live show and his beautifully raspy voice.

Chance The Rapper
10/10

Chance The Rapper

Recommended

Young Chicago MC Chancelor Bennett shot to the front of the new rap pack a few years ago with his awesome second mixtape 'Acid Rap' – one of our favourite albums of 2013. He recently released third mixtape 'Colouring Book' that boasted a parade of high profile collabs, everyone seems to be clamouring to dive into his hooky, soulful hip hop with slightly off-centre beats.
