Well if you like to party to David Cameron's tune, have a listen to satirical viral video artist and audio visual DJ Eclectic Method's remix of the Tory leader.

I have witnessed him perform to local crowds and key influencers in the music world, and there are whisperings behind the scenes akin to him being the new coming, with his return to a more ''conscious, positive'' moment for hip hop content.
