Plug Research was a big part of my early exploration in post-IDM material, Oakland’s Shortcircles fits nicely on the roster with his melody driven sparkle and ethereal slow tempos.

Lanza + Teen Daze + Almunia + Lord Raja

Jessy Lanza is one of the more exciting releases coming out on Hyperdub, this video makes me happy, showing us how little you really need budget wise for a video, just creatives in control.

Teen Daze is giving away 3 songs on his Soundcloud for free, this one was the most fitting for this post :)

I’m becoming a big Almunia fan, staying true to his sound and really expanding on it.

I found this catchy, its an edit by LORD Raja of Flying Lotus’ Captain Murphy.

Well you know my favorite album already this year since I probably have posted this song by Majical Cloudz 3 times in different ways, we’ll here’s a live version with video and in interview form to make you go see him live if you haven’t already.

Flaamingos is being put out by my friends label felte. I’ve been bugging him for it for months, the demos I heard made me want to have the music for late night designing as a contrast to what I owned. Their sound is done by many but few times am I this excited to hear a song again and again.

RIP Emeralds…but I guess I love Steve Hauschildt solo a wee bit more.

I was wondering what this new Blondes LP was going to sound like, I DJed with one of them a few months back, such a good dude with a great track selection.

Braxton/Palmer + Broker + Shapiro + Magic

Braxton/Palmer doing great things to the Keep Shelly in Athens single, definitely on my summer jam mix this year.

Broker/Dealer is still alive, its being held high by The Beat Broker, follow him on Soundcloud for the free mixes and support him by buying his super smooth 12′s, the man is talented.

Everyone is getting a stab at keeping this Sally Shapiro record in the air. This one is by far the most big dancefloor friendly.

Easing up on the gas pedal and sharing this beautiful 12+ minute jam from a Sun Araw band member.

Urulu + Prins Thomas + Lone + Zomby

Looking for house anthems that have some substance without relying on any massive sounds? Urulu has been probably my last 10 DJ sets, making it hard to not play this track twice, perfect for any warmup or cool down in a playlist.

I post a lot of Marius Vareid just because he makes very deep house/slow disco colorful, i’m sure Prins Thomas had plenty to work with on this remix.

Sometimes Lone is my favorite and other times he reminds of how much I loved music for Sega Genesis which is another reason I love him.

Throwing this playlist off the rails with this Zomby jam, 4AD just put out an experimental drum n bass record? wow, loving that curve ball.
