The Streets' Mike Skinner absolutely rocked Noughties Britain with his Original Pirate Material, while The Music's Rob Harvey would hardly warrant a Who's Who entry in a Yorkshire book of songwriting.

However, their collaboration (and Skinner's first off-Streets release) is a punchy dancefloor offering unafraid to travel to the lands of rap, pop, electronica, indie and the type of hands-in-the-air chorus synth hooks guaranteed to pack festival dance tents over the summer months.

Skinner, weirdly, takes a back seat to proceedings - popping up with the occasional vocal but leaving his social-realistic commentaries at home.

This feels more like a brief encounter than a permanent change of address for either artist - but it does neither any harm to have experimented.
