Now, perhaps inevitably, that video has been turned into a videogame. As you likely remember, the clip for this funky, noodle-fuelled pop jam shows Jay Kay dodging couches while dancing around a room with a moving floor.

  • Kimbra – “90s Music” Video

    Kimbra’s “90s Music” is among the wildest singles of 2014, and now it has one of the wildest videos.

  • Donny Hathway: a classic feature

    To remember the soul genius, who jumped to his death 35 years ago this month, here's a piece that singer-songwriter Kandia Crazy Horse wrote in 1999 – from Rock's Backpages

    My recent theory is that if the late soul man and scribe Donny Hathaway had been white he would be as (cult) famous as Cosmic American Gram Parsons; mentioned in the same breath as the prematurely departed mystic Nick Drake. Twenty years since Hathaway leaped to his death from the 15th floor of Manhattan's Essex House hotel, he's neither.

  • Feast: the Young Vic goes Yoruba

    It spans 300 years, takes in five countries – and needed 10 writers. Maddy Costa on an ambitious attempt to dramatise the culture and belief system of Yoruba
