Listen to the results of Q's Genre Swap challenge with Maximo Park, Hadouken!, Kings Charles & Drumsound & Bassline Smith
What happens when musicians step outside their comfort zones? And no, we don't mean an X-Factor contestant having a crack at Kings Of Leon, we mean a 'one giant leap...'-style step into the unknown...
To find out, Q challenged a host of artists to take part in our Genre Swap challenge and we found some very willing contestants indeed.
Maximo Park abandoned indie for a spot of electro, raver Hadouken! had a go at Motown, folkie King Charles ended-up with hip-hop, while dance duo Drumsound & Bassline Smith got to rock out (with a little help from LostAlone singer Steven Battelle).
Grab our new issue, either in print or on the iPad (which features bonus video interviews with all our genre-benders) for the full story, but for now the YouTube playlist above features the results our little challenge, so have a listen now.
