Princess of clubsThe chart-topping Katy B sings about life under the disco ball. So what are the tunes that get her out onto the dancefloor?
In 2011 Katy B pulled off a huge coup. The 24-year-old Londoner managed to combine dubstep and garage in her debut album, On A Mission, bringing together the seemingly incompatible underground club sound of her home town and great pop melodies. The album shot to No 2 in the UK charts and her new style quickly spawned a number of imitators.
Her new album, Little Red, out now, sees her still innovating while building on the sound she is famous for – and staying ahead of the pack. It’s full of hymns to the night, meetings under lights, and the magic of clubs. Here she tells us about songs that have inspired her, and that she can’t resist when the DJ drops.
