This is the third installment of my favourite Juicy feature to date where i trawl the audio goldmine that is soundcloud and report back with the 5 top tunes that have kept me dancing all week long...
#5 Laidjack - My Forbidden Lover (Laidjack Edit For Lovers)
Straight in with some serious old school 110bpm vibes this week. Laidjack updates a disco classic, perfect for mellowing out in the sun. I've never really heard of this guy before but from his soundcloud page he's combining the genres of disco and deep house really well to create something truly unique. Check him out.

#4 Dillon Francis - Beautician
At number 4 is a melodic slice of dubstep from up and coming producer Dillon Francis. Bu mashing together the heavier elements of artists like Doctor P and Flux Pavillion with quite melodic magneticman-esque electronic synthlines he breathes a breath of fresh air into the ailing genre of dubstep that's all beginning to sound the same. Also he's supporting Diplo and Sinden at the Liquid Rooms on May 5th. Gonna be larrge!

#3 Ghetto Funk - Been Real
Next is an electro/breaks croos over tune from Ghetto Funk. Not quite sure if Ghetto Funk is a label or an artist, all i know is that everything they're putting up on soundcloud is killing it! It uses the same old school sample from Avicii's 'My Feelings For You' but they put it to far better use than the swede! Mixing a big bassline with carnival style drums and a great vocal sample make this a true funky banger. Really can't wait to get my hands on this!

#2 Voltron - Don't Stop (XXXY Remix)
This man is truly killing it at the moment, the first act to be featured 2 weeks in a row on our Soundcloud Sundays feature! And if you listen to his tracks it really is for good reason. This time he takes the tempo up a bit and almost begins to explore MJ Cole style garage vibes whilst maintaining his impossibly funky trademark beats. If the first minute or so doesn't do it for you, fast forward to the second drop, simply superb, can't wait to see him live.

#1 La Zebra - Piano Dancin
The top spot this week goes to LA based producer La Zebra and his awesome tune Piano Dancin. He crafts the entire main melody from old piano samples and its awesome! The sheer level of funk that exudes from it is amazing and no doubt it would have any dancefloor going within seconds, deserved winner!
