‘9 (After Coachella)’ is a fizzy electronic pop song with whirring sounds and big bass stabs and frenetic co-production from Sophie.

The song was written by the Norwegian producer last year after Coachella when he lost a girl in the crowd he was into. The video delves into the singer Karen aka MØ and Magnus aka Cashmere Cat’s back stories. So we meet their parents and their pets. It’s a cute and engaging video.

Friday | Saturday | Sunday | Spotify | Stage Times

With a festival like Longitude, you probably already know who you’re going to see from the bigger names (if not: Friday: Todd Terje, SBTRKT, Metronomy, Little Dragon / Saturday: Caribou (+Daphni), Glass Animals, Jungle, Alt-J, Hud Mo, Le Galaxie / Sunday: Chemical Brothers, James Blake, Wild Beasts, Danny Brown, Young Wonder) but it’s further down the bill where things get a bit less clear cut. So here’s your guide to your five a day, five new artists to see to help you keep your finger on the pulse. Plus, there’s also a Spotify playlist for the entire festival lineup to listen to.

I’ll be down at the TXFM stage (Sitemap) on Sunday along with the rest of the crew who are DJing there all weekend long.

Spotify Longitude playlist

1. Leon Bridges

Friday, Whelan’s Stage, 4:15pm

Old-fashioned soul is Bridges’ thing. The 27 year-old Texan makes no concessions to modernity, even dressing as well as sounding like vintage Sam Cooke. His album Coming Home is what it is – uplifting soul music for sunny days so fingers crossed for Friday afternoon.

2. Ibeyi

Friday, Heineken Stage, 5:30pm

French Cuban twins with beguiling intertwined voices and instruments. One on a piano, another on percussion (which sometimes extends to her body as an instrument), their worldly songs take in their father’s Yoruba Nigerian tongue, gospel, Buena Vista Social Club styles (who their father played with), jazz and soul. Their XL Recordings debut is a fine album but live, as they did at Other Voices, is where they shine.

3. Haelos

Friday, Whelan’s Stage, 3:30pm

With only an EP and a single on Matador Records to their name, the English three-piece Haelos have already established their sound. A rush of synths, hanging percussion and a chorus of voices. ‘Earth Not Above’ is my absolute jam, as featured in my songs of the year list.

4. Hubie Davison

Friday, 5pm, RBMA stage

He might be CdB’s son but let’s not hold that against him. Mr Davison is a modern child versed in electronic music; based in London and releasing music on the Leisure System label that moves between textural electronic ambience and laid back grooves on ‘Get On’ and more dancefloor-edged fare like ‘Khayyam Grey’. Lots of mixes on Soundcloud to peruse.

5. Young Fathers

Friday, Heineken Stage, 6:45pm

When I watched the Glastonbury highlights and saw Young Fathers live footage, it didn’t come across well. That’s the problem with watching live music on the TV, it doesn’t always translate. I know for a fact, that Young Father’s live set is one of the best around at the moment, a gut-punching, tribal, howling, theatrical, visceral blood-let of a show. Their new album is boss.

Before June, no one had heard of Ryn Weaver. But suddenly, the American singer was all over the blogs with her song ‘Octahate’ and subsequently her Promises EP.

It’s easy to hear why. Her music has a big attitude to it with current production techniques and the easy detection of the kind of honest drum-beating pop that the Scandinavians do so well.

‘Octahate’ is the pinnacle of her music so far. Featuring co-production from Michael Angelakos of Passion Pit, Benny Blanco, and Cashmere Cat, the track’s bright electronic-pop swing is a good tonic to reductive songs about big booties.

The video is on the same parallel, retro styles, painted faces, cute inner child, weird people in body suits and patterned outfits.

1. Shlohmo and Jeremih – ‘No More’

This producer / singer paired up on last year’s ‘Bo Peep’ which I wasn’t mad about but this track was kept for their upcoming collaborative EP and it’s the best of both: Shlohmo’s unique twisting production with Jeremih coming close to the sound of The Weeknd. Free download from NPR.

2. Little Dragon – ‘Klapp Klapp’

‘Klapp Klapp’ is the first single from the new Little Dragon album Nabuma Rubberband out in May and sticks to the band’s dizzying synth pop grooves with the always-effective vocals of Yukimi Nagano rising above it.

3. Villagers – ‘Occupy Your Mind’

Conor O’Brien singing about being yourself in a Sochi’s only gay nightclub while the winter Olympics is on with production by James Ford? Sounds good to me.

4. Todd Terje – ‘Delorean Dynamite’

A track from the Norwegian man’s forthcoming debut album called IT´S ALBUM TIME bears all the hallmarks of his synth-disco productions. The album’s out in April. He’s playing live here in May.

5. New Jackson – ‘Satisfaction’

From David Kitt’s new EP on Permanent Vacation out next week called Made It Mine, comes the percussive house and vocoder track ‘Satisfaction’.

6. The Juan Maclean – ‘Get Down (With My Love)

After the excellent single ‘Feel Like Movin’ , Nancy Whang and John MacLean deliver some euphoric dance music or “saloon house” as one of Holy Ghost! called it. Big bass. A free download, in its radio edit form, from NPR today too. Giddy Up!

7. Hozier – ‘From Eden’

Andrew Hozier Byrne kicks off a busy year with a new EP and ‘From Eden’ is the first bluesy soulful track from the EP of the same name out at the end of March.

8. Blooms – ‘Skin’

Louise Cunnane and Sacred Animals’ collaboration has resulted in some nice hazy R&B electronic on ‘If I’ and ‘Skin’.

9. Salt Ashes – ‘Little Dove’

Like London Grammar with some sass. A cross between Kylie and Niki & The Dove with some basement disco and R&B soul influence, as featured today.

10. We Cut Corners – ‘Best Friend’

A short and sharp new single which has a more brooding and belligerent disposition than their other new music. Will come out on the second album Think Nothing.

11. Kelela – ‘The High’

First new track from the LA singer since her excellent Cut 4 Me mixtape in October. Production from Gifted & Blessed. I could listen to Kelela all day.

12. Cashmere Cat – ‘Wedding Bells’

I’m stil not sure if Norwegian producer is just an ADD-frazzled kid who is trying to cram every sound into one song but ‘Wedding Bells’ is definitely his most successful attempt and an actual track you would put on regularly. It’s got bells, whistles, flutes, big bass, mad percussion and everything else including the kitchen sink.
