To launch our new Spotify Playlists page and the Spotify Play button, Huff Post UK Tech has put together a top ten list of future sounds to tweet, pin, Flickr, Instragram, Facebook and Myspace by (spot the lolz!).
Featuring a wealth of emerging sounds from the UK, we've selected some of the strangest new sounds that are set to cross over into the radiowaves come summer.
South-London-based one man machine, Om Unit, takes a open-minded approach to electronic music, updating early "real" electro sounds. His recent collaboration as Dream Continuum with NYC's Machinedrum saw the pair take Chicago Footwork and UK Jungle and combine them to make a unique hydrid.
Darling Farah is the internet. The 19-year-old from Detroit started making music at 16 living in Abu Dhabi where playing music in public is outlawed. He used the web to make electronic music and build a small legion of devoted followers via the net.
Wu Lyf, which stands for World Unite! Lucifer Youth Foundation, began as a cabal with its own secret codes and practices. They don't have fans, they have members, and sold their debut single for £15 a copy, which also entitled fans to lifetime "membership" of the LYF.
Grimes, pictured above, is the post-Bjork pop princess of the digital generation. She takes what the Icelandic song goddess achieved and furthers it with a pop sensibility. Originally signed to London label Lo Recordings, the Canadian is now making it large on legendary label 4AD, home to Pixies, Cocteau Twins, Bon Iver and The National.
