St Germain

St Germain's debut album, 'Bouvelard (The Complete Series)' is a straight classic, no doubt about it. It's jazzy deep house (seriously) at its finest and doesn't ever get old whenever it's listened to. The French producer worked in the crispy, boom bap drums of 'Push It Along' majestically, acting as a fine accompaniment of the sleazy saxophone. Jazz, hip hop and house: heaven.

DJ Marky & Makoto

Make sure you're concentrating right from the off with this one because the glistening first note of the tune is lifted from the Faith Evans-featuring 'Stressed Out'. Marky and Japanese producer Makoto entwine it into their super fresh liquid jam, keeping in Evans' polished-as-ever vocals of knowing "how it feels to be stressed out".

Gorillaz feat MF Doom

MF Doom may as well have questioned "can I flip it?" with his guest appearance on Damon Albarn and co.'s 'November Has Come'. Why? The masked rapper replicated the famous "can I kick it? Yes you can" on the animated primates' second album 'Demon Days', instead switching it to "My guess is yes you can like, can I kick it? wicked." Simple, but a sample all the same.
