With a number-one single under their belt and a host of festival gigs in the diary, Clean Bandit releaseed their debut album, New Eyes, and it's bloody good.

So who better to give us the ultimate playlist for the summer ahead than violinist Neil?

Play when…your pool party needs sexing up.

"Kwabs is a British singer who would make any party feel epic. If you played this, it wouldn't be like an pool party I've ever been to. Put on Pray For Love as the sun is setting."

Play when…skinny dipping with your holiday fling.

"Rae Morris has a sexy voice that'd make you feel like you were the only two people there. She sings on our new album."

Play when…an Ibiza night out is taking its toll.

"I first heard Sohn at a festival in Berlin, and his music sounded so beautiful. It'd be a perfect soundtrack to piecing together the night before. Give this track a go."

Play when…in the park with some pretty girls.

"Girls love falsetto, and Sam Smith is your man for that. Gear your playlist around what girls want - the atmosphere will be miles better if girls are dancing."

Play when…heading to a festival with your mates.

"My Nu Leng are amazing producers. Their new song, Masterplan, is so huge. It'll hype anyone up. When I need to up my DJ ante, I go for this."

Play when…your BBQ is headed for disaster.

"So Close by Kidnap Kid is the most summery song I've heard. He's supporting us on our tour."
