Electronic pioneer Gary Numan is joining forces with the BBC's Sound of 2009 winner Little Boots, while new wavers Heaven 17 and electro-popsters La Roux will unite for two special 6 Music Live Combos.

The unique collaborations will be recorded at the iconic studios of Maida Vale on 7 December and 26 January and broadcast on the station on Friday 11 December and Friday 29 January.

The format sees both artists perform three songs of their own, provide guest vocals on one of each other’s tracks and then do a cover of someone else’s song together.
