Our summer music special has pop icon Beyoncé on the cover, boasts pieces on Tom Vek, Wiley, Zomby and Gwilym Gold, plus features on Hussein Chalayan's new book and the Edinburgh Film Festival

Pop vs Life

July's summer music special stars pop icon Beyoncé in a scorching hot trailer park fantasy. Ahead of her fourth solo album, Sharif Hamza shoots one of the biggest stars on the planet, wearing special one-off creations by Gareth Pugh, Tom Ford, Riccardo Tisci, Stefano Pilati, Haider Ackermann and Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton.

To kick-start the summer of festival and frequency-loving, we take a look at the most exciting British albums slated for release this year including, Tom Vek (pictured), Zomby, Wiley and Gwilym Gold. In film, ahead of the Edinburgh International Film Festival, we talk to controversy-baiting Romain Gavras ahead of his debut feature "Our Day Will Come". 

Best known for his trippy and psychedelic beats, Flying Lotus selects Jeremiah Jae, a lo-fi experimental hiphop artist hailing from the Brainfeeder crew and in fashion we're thrilled to release an exclusive preview of the Autumn/Winter 2011 collections.
