It’s an all beat post! these 4 musicians i’ve loved and have all been suggested to me atleast once this week(it’s only Wednesday) so I put them all together in a more focused sounding playlist.
Machinedrum put together a very cohesive album for Planet Mu, it came at a great time and the style is back to what I feel like Travis has loved since I first met him years ago, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Ann Arbor hometown hero / Flying Lotus‘ beat partner comes with a raw collection of beats/ideas, whats attractive about it is that its not trying to ever be flashy or be something that its not. I picked Pressure from the album because I LOVE the synth line at 0:31.
Sun Glitters has 10 releases on bandcamp, now thats a musician thats really taking advantage of the tools out there for musicians that don’t have a home. If you ever wanted Flying Lotus to do a simple cover of Slowdive then this track is for you. Support his music here.
Warp just released a small peek into the Rustie album thats coming in October, sounds like he’s settled down a bit which gets me excited.

Dig Sun Glitters hard…. been listening to their LP (among their other releases) for most of 2011… one of my most loved albums this year.
Definitely has a Burial feel to it… and from what I’ve seen, his live sets are great.

Nice selections as always!
The Rustie track that Warp released is slower and more ambient than alot of his previous stuff but if you listen to his set on the Jacques Greene Rinse.FM session, the rest sounds pretty hyperactive :)

I loved Samiyam’s album, because it reminded me of FlyLo’s first album – easy going beats you can just chill out to.
