Ed Sheeran seems to be on a well earned roll at the moment and is dropping good song after good song along with getting support from some of the UK's finest talent. Proof of that comes again today as we have this remix version of his latest single, "You Need Me, I Don't Need You" featuring hard hitters Wretch 32 and Devlin. All three of them lay down some awesome bars to the original track. Nice to see they all have their own way of writing lyrics. Young gun Ed spits verses from his iPad, Wretch opts for writing his lyrics on the good ol' Blackberry and Devlin goes for the traditional approach, pen and paper. All three of them kill it in my opinion but don't take my word for it hit play and see for yourselves.
4 of the UK's best jump on Grime producer Lewi White's latest single "Young Guns."

The single is available to purchase now through UK digital retailers.
One third of the indie band The XX and 2011's currently most in-demand remixer Jamie xx takes over this week's 6 Mix on BBC 6 Music. After dropping amazing remixes like Adele's "Rolling In The Deep" and his recent collaboration album with spoken word legend Gil Scott-Heron on We're New Here, Jamie takes over the 6 Mix to play a selection of the music which inspired his productions alongside some of his current favourites and also tells the story of how he came to remix the whole Gil Scott Heron album. Check out the mix below which also features a new tune from Jamie and recent Devlin collaborator Yasmin titled "Touch Me". Peep the track listing after the jump.
And our UK hip hop Saturday morning won't stop. Devlin recently swung by the Live Lounge with Ferne Cotton on BBC Radio 1 and performed a live session of his latest single "Let It Go" and "Dreamer" from his latest LP Bud, Sweat and Beers. But the shinning jewel from his performence was his surprise cover of Chase & Status' hit single "Blind Faith." Devlin put his own spin on the track, adding some fresh rhymes as well as displaying a sweet singing voice. C&S needs to get him on an official remix, stat! Check it out below.
Check out Jessie J performing her new track, "Price Tag" which on the original version we got B.o.B dropping in on. As we saw the other day he also appears in the video, but recently Jessie performed for MTV 'Brand New for 2011' and in the performance UK act Devlin stepped up to the Mic to fill in the gap where B.o.B. was om the recording. Catch the interesting performance up at the top. No doubt we'll be seeing plenty more of Jessie this coming year and hopefully a little more of Devlin too. Enjoy.
Check out this nice remix of Devlin's track "Let It Go" from Joker. We've previously heard him do the dirty to tracks such as Gorillaz' "Doncamatic" and this track does not disappoint either.
