Patten + Small Black + Avery + D5

Patten is new to the Warp label, his LP is soon to be out. If you dig around on his insanely good website you’ll find free edits that he does, the best one in my opinion was this multi-fi edit of Burial.

I. am. thrilled. for. this. Small. Black. LP. Its like a slowed down Peter Gabriel instrumental!

Daniel Avery did up a perfect remix for Factory Floor, its something you’d hope someone would turn in for you, he leaves the original genre and gives you a beauty, DFA should be overwhelmingly happy.

I have been digging through almost every Delsin release this past week, just one by one and this was a stand out gem from D5, melting digital clouds.

Stream: Com Truise Wave 1

The new Com Truise EP “Wave 1” is out today, stream it above.

Wave 1 is the first new transmission the world has received from producer Seth Haley since his gloriously futuristic debut album Galactic Melt. That album cataloged the genesis and evolution of Haley’s alter ego Com Truise — the world’s first synthetic/robotic astronaut, as Haley described him — and this EP continues the character’s journey into the outer reaches of the musical multiverse. In the process, it also builds on Haley’s signature production style, one that’s rooted in classic sci-fi sounds and analogue textures but nevertheless manages to sound utterly contemporary.

Jaakko Eino Kalevi: Finland has their own Destroyer/John Maus hybrid and he’s amazing.


Lee Bannon: Ninja Tunes just keeps stacking up and reviving good drum n bass.


Indian Wells: Flying under the radar in the beat world clutter.


Disclosure: I wouldn’t usually post this video but the color treatment and the vintage knick knacks make it.

Avery + Marcellis + Traxman + Daneeka

Daniel Avery is touching on some Gui Boratto & Superpitcher levels, in 2004 this would have sold 10k vinyl easily.

The hypnotic manner of where this Marcellis song goes, made me obsess over it right away. I might never spin a set without it.

Some sort of juked out motown from Traxman, its like what Bullion might have ended up doing if he just kept it simple and sample based.

I think I heard this song in a Falty DL set, maybe Shazam lied to me and its not right but once I looked up the result I found this Doc Daneeka cut. Might edit it down and cut out the vocal break, its not my thing personally.
