If you were a teenager around the turn of the millennium, you’ll no doubt have spent some time on Limewire downloading the music of N-Dubz, and this week we took a trip down memory lane to study the highs and lows of the trio in their prime.

Elsewhere over the past week, we hit the slopes for Snowboxx festival, got experimental Amsterdam duo Know V.A. to cook up this massive mix for us, while Israel’s Noga Erez did the same, plus spoke to rising London rapper Knucks about his favourite Missy Elliott videos. Patoranking got us in the festival mood by sharing his best African carnival cuts, and Local Action-signed games composer Lena Raine shared her favourite female composers in the game,┬áplus we premiered great new fractured techno from Phoet and hi-NRG craziness from Crookers and Morgan Hislop.
