The selection of aural goodies on offer my not be akin to your beau handing you a Milk Tray or cracking open a magnum of Moët on a bear-skin rug in front of a roaring fire, but still, they're great. While it's hard to imagine Big Boi snuggling up and being the little spoon – or maybe it's not – he's dropped a doozy of a track this week. While Woman's Hour, Suntrapp and Common might not be slathered in chocolate body butter and rose petals, they've provided us with glorious moments of musical pleasure in the form of new tracks. Saint Pepsi's the exception here, as his fresh sonic bouquet, 'Bieber', is damn erotic.

As a part of his #MashupMonday series, Big Boi has teamed up with an unlikely trio: Wavves, B.o.B., and Third World for 'Run th3 World'. It's an eclectic track that feels incredibly tropical before cutting to Wavves verse where he sings about how "death will hunt you down" in his trademark rough-sounding style. It's a mashup of Big Boi's track 'Shoes for Running' with Third World's 'How Can You', all weaved together by master producer Dungeoneze.

There are surprises at every twist and turn in 'Run th3 World', but it's an incredibly strong track that is quickly becoming a favourite of mine. Stream it (and watch the mesmerizing visual) below.

Towards the end of last year I found myself giving a talk to a group of eager young musicians at the Roundhouse in Camden. I kind of snapped out of what had become a weird lucid dream at the very point my face grinned at the words emerging from my mouth. "If you want to make money you should quit, become an accountant or something." Behind the smile I winced at the words. Not everybody ends up bitter and broke, some people still get joy from the act of creation. The industry is pretty obviously, the industry, but it doesn't have to be a nepotistic smile stealing joy vacuum. At least not for everyone involved.

As all the thoughts whirled around, I answered their questions and headed for the train home. I thought about telling my teenage self that one day I'd be sent more music than I could listen to, and that I'd whine about it to strangers. Teenage me would think I was a dick. Teenage me would be right.

After I set myself on fire, I thought nothing more about it, until a song turned up in my inbox from one of the kid's in the audience. I was pretty apprehensive to listen to it, but I figured the eagerness had to be based on the back of something, and that something might even be talent. So I hit play... hoping.

The track below, the track we are proudly premièring, is the track I was sent. It's by a singer songwriter called Suntrapp, who isn't old and bitter and indebted to friends and banks alike... and you can hear that. The song has that feeling. I can't explain it. Like opening your curtains to glorious quiet optimism. He's a smart kid, much smarter than I am. You should listen to him.

The subtle electronics of London's/Kendal's Woman's Hour were recently drafted into the ever growing arsenal of Secretly Canadian, and they've already partnered to deliver a single perfect for the winter months. 'Her Ghost' is a glistening crystal of melancholia that glides with Fiona Burgess hushed-melodic vocals.

Intellectual hip-hop figure Common just revealed details of his new album Nobody Smiling about a month ago when he dropped his new track 'War'. He's still focused on putting some sense into hip-hop as seen in his new track 'Made In Black America' featuring Ab-Soul. The Chicago rapper teamed up with No I.D. to produce the song.

'Bieber' only means one thing at this point, and you've got to feel a little bad for the poor unfortunate souls that were coincidentally born into a name so tarnished. Even so it's a weird name for Saint Pepsi's smooth new song, seemingly an ironic act of potential self-sabotage. The track is similarly as juvenile as its namesake I guess, not in a bratty or vulgar way, in a sweet lovesick kind of way. With lyrics like "If I was your boyfriend I'd never let you go, keep you on my arm girl, you'd never be alone." 'Bieber' is the perfect mixtape jam for your first love.
