The recession has hit every country in some way or another and, in my very humble opinion, it's the young people who have been hit the hardest – with higher university fees, lesser job opportunities and house prices sky-rocketing. Manchester’s dubstep and D&B outfit, Virus Syndicate, tackle said issues in their new Document One-featuring single, Cold World.

"Cold World" is an example of what our British youth are faced with in today’s world." The track: anthemic. The video: cinematic. Big words, I know. If you don't believe me, see for yourselves…
