1. Sade's 1992 classic No Ordinary Love is the latest song to be given the MNEK "refix" treatment, and while such a move might read as blasphemous to some, it's hard to find fault in the teenager's update. It respectfully recasts the original's patient, deep groove luxuriance into a shimmering, moon-lit electro-soul churn and supplies a stunning vocal performance that digs into the lyric's heart-shattered ache with breathtaking lows and awe-inducing, wail-streaked highs.

2. Neus (aka Gaël Guidicelli) was born in Bastia and passionate by music from his youth, has experimented with genres ranging from electro and techno to minimalist. The artist introduces a brand new remix of Happy by Pharrell Williams. The reworked track slides into a different register with funky house beats, bringing the French Touch vibe in it and showing us that he is able to produce and excel in different music styles.

His last video was for Without You, a track produced by GREAF is an unexpected stunning piece of sweet angelic vocals, melodies and expressions of yearning.
