Wherever you are in the world: good morning, good afternoon, good evening, good night. It is time for your 5 a day.

One day, the UK government said, "You should eat 5 portions of fruit or veg[etables] per day." Turns out you should probably eat more than that. But we think it's pretty catchy, so we've hijacked it. Here we'll list FIVE pieces of music per DAY that we think you should check out. As the Italians say, we'll be catching two pigeons with one bean (prendere due piccioni con una fava): we help spread the word about MORE artists, plus we're giving YOU more music to listen to. It's all a joy for us, really!

It's Cavalier with 'Reflex' – eat up that bassline and swim in those soft synths, enjoy the groovesomeness of it all. Synths 'n' beats all up in your face with the dojo. remix of Mariah Carey's often-remixed 'Touch My Body'. nimbus makes a beat-heavy abrasive shoegazing dreamscape in 'under shade'. Hearty beats full of lounge-flavoured electronic piano from Oshi in his gorgeous new one, 'Ice Tea'. And to finish things off GEOTHEORY takes us to a soulful dimension of virtuosic beats and bass. Very very nice stuff all round.


"Shit I'm all out of flour," you say to yourself. You get the lift down the ground level, hop on over to the convenience store, purchase flour. The guy behind the till is in a trance. In the lift back to your apartment. "This is gonna be the best ever cake."


Wondering what to say to the attractive guy you see every day on your way to work. "Hi, I see you every day" – no – "What's your name?" – no. Nothing else springs to mind. "How do people get dates?" you think.


A nightmare world. You're in a cave, exploring with a team of fellow explorers, a wide mouth opening to a vast landscape. Suddenly the cave fills with viscous liquid, something that is purple and turquoise and deep blue all at the same time. You struggle to the mouth but cannot get out. "Is this jelly?" You wake up full of regret.


Tea break at your office. The new intern is showing off. You sip gratefully, sidling away from the growing group of slackers in the kitchen. You look out the window. "Not long to go," you think, the summer sun oozing out from behind hanging-haze clouds.


Running around a park at sunset with the prospect of a fun evening ahead. Beat your best time ever. You have a celebratory Lucozade Sport to quench your thirst as you lean on a bench and watch the orange and pink-soaked sky turn purple and dark blue.
