Example wants to record tracks with Kasabian and Swedish House Mafia.

The 28-year-old rapper - real name Elliot Gleave - said he "may be swayed" to record with the 'Fire' rockers, particularly if he was approached by the band's guitarist and songwriter, Sergio Pizzorno.

Example said: "If Kasabian came to me then I may be swayed - I love Serge, I think he's an amazing songwriter.

"And if Swedish House Mafia asked me to do a tune then obviously I'd do it. Tinchy Stryder asked me to appear on some stuff with him as well, which was nice, as I'm not from a grime or hip hop scene."

Example - who previously admitted he would happily work on "loads" of material with 'Pack Up' singer Eliza Doolittle - also revealed he wants to "change people's opinions" of his music with his dance music influenced third album, 'Playing in the Shadows'.

He added to "My music is poppy and catchy but I've always wanted to be a serious dance rave act. I think the fact that there's rapping in there doesn't really matter - it worked for Faithless.

"I think the album has the best producers in the world on it for what I do. For a dance album to have Faithless, Laidback Luke, Nero all at once is amazing for me.

"Nobody said I could write anything better than 'Kickstart', but the only person I have to better is myself."
