Until recently we'd have told you Blackstreet's "No Diggity" was virtually untouchable, but then Australian up-and-comer (and New Shapes SXSW alum) Chet Faker went and changed our whole shit up. Swinging for the fences on his original interpretation, it's all swooning minor chords and murky Thievery Corporation-esque production. When the smoke clears, you're fully entranced by Chet's cigarette-scorched croon, the downbeat synths, and his bearded James Blake whiskey swagger. All in all, it's an ultra-modern ballad that goes toe-to-toe with the original at every step of the way. Major hat-tip to our brothers from another motherland, Chess Club, who dropped Faker's Thinking In Textures EP in March and will be bringing him over to the UK with us for his debut shows there next month.

No amount of hyperbole is unjustifiable for this track. Not even this!
