You'd be deaf, blind and a certifiable hermit not to have noticed 'Peckham Princess' Katy B storming the UK charts with her past three hit singles. After the success of tracks like 'Katy On A Mission' and 'Lights On', ‘Broken Record’ is her latest bass-heavy pop-infused tune that reworks 90s drum'n'bass beats for today. Released on Rinse with remixes from the legendary DJ Fresh, Todd Edwards and Canada's Jacques Greene, the 21-year-old's distinctive vocals and high-energy beats provide us with what simultaneously works in the club as well as moping in bed over the boyfriend.
