Hey Blastro Friends!  My name is Jesse Brede and I'm one of the programmers that writes code for our sites and vidoe player.  When I'm not coding, I'm out djing and producting electronic music.  My tastes tend to go more towards the underground.  2010 was a great year for electronic music and saw some artists break out onto the scene in a big way.

Here's my pick for this years best electronic albums.  For more electronic news, check out my blog at jessebrede.com

Kelis insists she and Nas are now friends.

The 'Milkshake' singer - whose divorce from the rapper was finalised in May following months of legal wrangling over financial arrangements - says she no longer has any reason to row with her former spouse, with who she has 12-month-old son Knight.

She said: "We're friends. We get along now and it's all good. We're divorced but there's no point in fighting - there's nothing to fight about.

"Our son Knight is hilarious. He's a shrunken little person and has lots of personality."

Kelis loves her home life and even recorded most of her latest LP 'Flesh Tone' in her garage, which she says was an inspiring experience.

She explained: "It was good to be home and record. I'm inspired by life every day and conversations with friends."

During a break from the spotlight, Kelis trained as a cordon bleu chef and loves sharing her skills with her loved ones.

She said: "I took four years off to have a little life and I studied as a chef as a hobby. I fell in love with food - I like preparing food to share with people. I wanted to do something just for me."
