There are lots of returns on this episode of Crimes Against Pop, with new music from Loyle Carner, The 1975, Alvvays and Melin Melyn. That’s joined by yet another collaboration between Superorganism and CHAI (just as Superorganism’s second album has been released), the debut solo single from Blur’s Dave Rowntree and a funky new single from Myd.

Crimes Against Pop – aka Paul Haswell and Carolyn Wright – have been DJing together since 2003, when they launched their eponymous monthly residency at the Buffalo Bar in London.

As well as hosting their own regular sold out nights in London, Haswell and Wright appeared regularly at Rob Da Bank's Bestival festival on the Isle of Wight, before moving to Hong Kong in 2010 and 2011, respectively. Since then, Crimes Against Pop have brought their eclectic mix of pop, hip-hop, r’n'b and electronica to major events such as Clockenflap and the Rugby Sevens, while earning a reputation for packing the dancefloor at bars and clubs across the city. They’re also known for getting Sunday mornings off to the perfect start with their Pop Fugitives radio show on RTHK3.
