1st LP release since "Drukgs" 13 years ago is kind of a big deal

Sure Richard D. James has been doing other things with his musical time under different monikers in the last thirteen years, but as far as the Aphex Twin we all revere him to be, it’s been a long fucking time. A true groundbreaker in the world of electronic/intelligent dance music in a way that has […]

"Syro" album release coming on September 22nd

Ever since all those Aphex Twin blimps started mysteriously showing up over London, windowlickers worldwide started getting goosebumps. If you’ve been wondering — rather, make that anxiously waiting with your fingers on the sound knobs  — for when you’d be hearing something new from perhaps the most warped wonder on the Warped label, the time is […]

Wiley, Slum Village, Broken Bells, Dog Blood, Kove & more

We just shared Zeds Dead Somewhere Else mini-mix last week, but it looks like the Toronto duo is keeping busy. They hit up the BBC’s popular Diplo & Friends showcase this Saturday night to drop a one-hour set of off-kilter beats. From bouncy bingo 2-step to house to plenty of lower frequency bass tracks, Zeds Dead mix […]

Blending his signature sounds of hip-hop, bass and straight up wobble (don’t call it dubstep) with a healthy new dose of trap, MiMOSA crafts a 40 minute set that sees him taking his […]

First single from British drum & bass producer's "Torus" LP

Renowned drum & bass producer Sub Focus is about to drop his sophomore album Torus on September 23rd. The day before, however, the British banger will release the “Turn It Around” EP. The eponymous title track features vocals from Bloc Party’s Kele Okereke, which obviously lends the track more emotional weight than your typical throwaway […]

Second single off upcoming "Urban Animal" album

A new track by the illustrious VonStroke, Mr. Claude VonStroke that is. Although his upcoming album Urban Animal, his third studio LP, is notable for the new directions the Detroit-via-San Francisco-via-Los Angeles producer is exploring, “Dood” is quintessential VonStroke — meaning, expect bass, booty shanking rhythms and idiosyncratic beats. In other words, superb underground house.  If […]

Derek Vincent Smith releases first free LP in almost 3 years

Pretty Lights — aka Derek Vincent Smith — has been one of the most consistent instrumental producers of the last half decade. With a complex layered approach that’s more DJ Shadow than cornball EDM mainstage, the Denver producer is one of the few talents that has flavorfully blended the world of hip-hop beats with electronic textures.
