A weekly playlist for the listener with a one track mind...

Lloyd Banks featuring Sway, Giggs, Kanye West, Swizz Beatz and Ryan Leslie: "Start It Up" (Official UK remix)

What distinguishes this star-studded, "Official UK" remix from the regular kind? British rappers you've never heard of and gratuitous references to Hogwarts.

The Caribbean: "Mr. Let's Find Out"

The District-based outfit - think of the group as a really depressing Fountains of Wayne - confront encroaching middle age and a hatred of PowerPoint on this track from the early '11 release, "Discontinued Perfume."

B.o.B.: "Beast Mode"

The newly minted retro/hip-hop star looks back on his really good year. From his "No Genre" mix tape, which drops Tuesday.

Daft Punk: "Derezzed" (Breakdown remix)

The duo's dark, self-contained "Tron: Legacy" tracks aren't as easy to remix as you'd think, but the LA-based Breakdown give it a go on this buzzing, high-energy redo.

Nick Cave: 28 Covers

In addition to being a musician, actor and vaguely terrifying Renaissance man, Cave is also a covers aficionado. Collated here: 28 of his finest, from the sublime (Neil Young) to the ridiculous ("Mack the Knife").
