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!

From heart-warming, sleep-inducing hip-hop right to the other end of the scale with confusing and very abrasive hardcore punk, feat. lots of screaming, here is our first little New Music Dispatch. You'll also find some super-sophisticated beats (with lashings of xylophone) courtesy of French beatmaker snk∆ and some, in reality, quite cheesy funk pop crafted by Tuxedo. Top it off with a serving of experimental music created by developer, self-confessed "broke PhD student" and maker of music, MIKE GAO, and you got yourself a nice bunch of tracks.


Warming your cockles


You can dream but you'll probably never be as classy as this beat makes you feel


Trapped in an Itchy & Scratchy cartoon


This can be Our Song at that wedding we'll never have


Likes: confusing you, breaking your bones. Dislikes: melody, harmony
