23 year old singer, songwriter and producer Låpsley has taken the electronica world by storm.

Hailing from Southport, Holly Fletcher returns to the motherland for her monthly radio show. Signed to XL Recordings and Universal Publishing, this self-professed music nerd has already released 2 EPs and a debut album, which reached the UK Top 40. Not to mention landing 'Hottest Record In The World' this month with her new single, My Love Is Like The Rain.

She first yanked our attention back in 2013 with her solo bedroom-recorded EP Monday, which reached over half a million listens on Sound Cloud. More recently, you may recognise DJ Koze’s edit of her track "Operator" being blasted from speakers all over the UK. With a list of successes under her belt such as ‘NME’ and ‘BBC Sound of…’ nominations, festival performances at the likes of Glastonbury and being playlisted by Radio 1, this young songstress is only just getting started.

Låpsley treats us to a throwback hour for April's The Å List, with 70s-90s bangers from Janet Jackson, The Sundays and more!
