Top Four

Stereophonics have this week claimed top spot, knocking one of the charts most successful participants down to second! That’s huge for the rockers, and has been made possible through large waves of DJ downloads from the worlds of football, rugby and basketball. Liverpool, Palace & West Brom are just 3 of many clubs incorporating this track into their matchday playlists.

Places 3 and 4 are both home to new faces this week too. Tom Grennan who sat rock bottom last week, has made moves during the international break to make top 3, while Glaswegian rockers Biffy Clyro are looking forward to Champions League football too. Tom’s track ‘Don’t Break The Heart’ is in its 6th week in the chart and has received a real boost from DJs in the Football League. The likes of Port Vale, West Brom, Sheffield Wednesday & Braintree Town will be putting this number to good use in the weeks ahead.

Biffy’s latest offering ‘A Hunger in Your Haunt’ has just premiered as Radio 1’s Hottest Record and will feature on the ‘The Myth’ which is set for release a week today (October 22nd). ‘A Hunger in Your Haunt‘ strikes first with a frantic, spiralling riff that recalls the feral ferocity of Biffy Clyro’s early fan favourite album ‘Infinity land’. It still features the band’s renowned flair for drama and explosive dynamics, as they completely deconstruct the song before resurfacing for one final attack. Our friend Keith Easton has been playing this one at Hampden Park during the international break, while Leeds United have had this one blaring throughout their concourse at Elland Road.

At mid-table we see EA Sports favourites Joy Crookes & Sam Fender make their way up 4 and 5 places each, while the princess of pop enters play just beneath them.

That’s right, Kylie Minogue makes her debut in the Stadium Chart with her collaboration alongside Years and Years, ‘A Second to Midnight’.

It’s the first single to be released from the forthcoming album ‘DISCO: Guest List Edition’, which also features new tracks recorded with disco legend Gloria Gaynor and British pop sensation Jessie Ware, plus last year’s collaboration with Dua Lipa, as well as an incredible array of remixes of tracks from the original album release.


Best Of The Rest

Due to a handful of artists exceeding their 2 month cut-off last week, we see some more debutants in the lower places, with notable mention to Biyi. His track ‘Lately’ has been remixed by one of the most versatile artists in the drum ‘n’ bass scene, Villem. The remix takes the soulful rap/vocals of Biyi and places them under a Liquid Drum & Bass beat, combining with jazz guitar and piano into an ethereal and atmospheric twist on the the original.

Away from music, Biyi is also a professional player for Rugby team Wasps in the English Premiership. He says “I’ve played rugby growing up, which is not popular with kids who look like me from my city. Rap and art through music is not necessarily synonymous with the ‘rugby world’, but I feel as though firstly – I am a Black boy from London, and music and expressionism is in our blood.”

Villem’s sounds range from big bouncy jungle to sublime liquid rolling bliss, taking inspiration from funk, jazz, soul and hip-hop. This easily makes him the perfect collaborator for the alt-rap of Biyi. Various stadium DJs would agree with this statement, as those at West Ham, Bristol City and Ipswich Town have all taken a shine to this remix.
