I’m a sucker for infectious dance floor beats.  I’m not talking some terrible, synthetic remix of “It’s Raining Men”.  Think more a long the lines of Robyn, Hercules & Love Affair and even a little Kylie Minogue.  Originals.  So now I bestow onto you my latest obsession, Katy B.  With a charming voice similar to Lilly Allen and the beats of MIA and Hot Chip, she’s a solid act.  And with only a small handful of songs out, I expect this to be a long lived love affair.
