1Xtra DJ Adele Roberts made Luke Bingham’s upcoming single ‘Gemini’ (which features Luke’s 3Beat label mate and UK hip-hop legend Sway) her Weekend Anthem this weekend. Adele played the track twice – once on Saturday (41 minutes into the show) AND again on Sunday (40 minutes in). The reaction was great… Adele and her listeners absolutely loved the track – go #TeamGemini!!
Produced by DaVinChe (who’s had hits with Kano, Tinchy Stryder, Tinie Tempah, Wretch 32 and Wiley) ‘Gemini’ is out on 3Beat on October 22nd.

‘Beat Down’ – the latest 3Beat release – is the new single from Steve Aoki & Angger Dimas and features a fierce vocal from Aussie rap sensation Iggy Azalea. A bona fide electronic party-starter, the track is holding steady just outside the 40.
Remixes come from UK garage kings DEVolution, underground star Donaeo and Paris Esquire AfroRnBeat.
Check out the video.
If you’ve been listening to Radio 1 over the past couple of weeks you’ve probably heard ‘Need U’ the incredible new single from electronic genius Unicorn Kid. At Radio 1 Jem & Ally, Zane Lowe, Annie Mac, Fearne Cotton and Huw Stephens have all been showing their love. Eddy Temple-Morris is championing the track at Xfm.
Release date is Oct 7th, but you can pre-order it now.
The 3Beat pipeline is bulging with great music – Romanian pop goddess Alexandra Stan’s new single ‘Lemonade’ gets its release on October 7th too. The track, a splash of pure sunshine, is the follow up to the massive Mr Saxobeat – the most shazam-ed record of 2011. ‘Lemonade’ has already gone top 10 in Japan and Italy and the video has notched up a massive 20 million views on YouTube already (watch it here).
‘Lemonade’ is available to pre-order now.
Rising star Luke Bingham returns with ‘Gemini’ which features label mate and all round superstar Sway and the untouchable production talents of Davinche.
The video went live last week – you can watch it here.
The track is fast winning fans at 1Xtra with Target, DJ Cameo and DJQ leading the way. With remixes from Todd Edwards, Zed Bias & Manhattan Clique ‘Gemini’ will be available soon.
