This is an interesting direction for R/D, I know some of you are going to be wondering what happened to his old sound. It’s definitely a different style, even from his latest releases, but I think it’s an interesting progression to take. Part of me hopes that he’s careful not to lose that element that makes his music so recognizable though.

Man, Break Science is definitely a duo that I don’t think gets enough credit. I’ve been loving everything lately, from the Boogie Down remix with Gramatik to the Monolith Code album, they are really putting it down. Show this mix some love if you’re feeling it, I know I definitely am.

Woo, finally dropped! I featured The Sunset on here a bit ago, but you can grab the whole album for free. My take: PLM picked up another winner, definitely a different sound from someone like Menert, but it still fits well with the vibe of the label and is definitely quality. Show some love if this is your style.

Here we are again, with another experimental sound, this is the kind of stuff I know a lot of you enjoy. I like where Ambinate takes this track, it’s just a fantastic song to “lose yourself” too. Show some love with this one, and download the whole album if it’s your taste.

1.) “Stardust”

2.) “Relax”

3.) “Astral Projection”

I’ve already posted about the former Astral Projection mix, well the official release is finally here, and it’s sounding good. I’ll always have a soft spot for the Ancient Machines EP, and this one is up there in terms of being a favorite release from a very talented producer.

Another new member from the Pretty Lights music label, Eliot Lipp makes a strong debut with a really memorable first track. PLM has been doing big things (what else is new?), with Michal Menert’s latest album “Even If It Isn’t Right” dropping recently as well. It’s going to be a good summer.

Oh.

My.

God.

Excuse the pre-teen style formatting, but this is the cutest shit I’ve ever seen.

I’m not sure who’s idea it was to get a bunch of adorable British children to review a Skrillex track and give their honest thoughts, but I commend them.

Maybe it’s because I have a soft spot for kids because I’ve worked with them for years, but this video put a huge smile on my face.

Not really a fan of them eating candy made to look like they were taking pills, but hey, I’m a softie.

…Perfect.

Skrillex


I feel like Eastern Sun has their ‘sound’ down pat… the zen-like vibe is not done better elsewhere, according to this guy’s humble opinion. I didn’t realize how old this track was, a tad different from their new releases, but a really amazing piece.

I once got an email that said Sophistefunk was the source for this person’s “Sex Playlist”… damn right it is. Giving credit where it is definitely due, about 30% of my posts like this come from the ever surprising tammyszu on YouTube, who you should definitely check out. Last but not least, definitely show Applebottom some love for this amazing track!

Kind of pushes the genre boundaries, at least as classified by this site, not really pure hip-hop or electronic, but rather just a really enjoyable listen. Check it out and show Loui The Zu some love to the free download.
