For over 10 years, Percussion Lab has sought out and supported electronic musicians in the greater New York area. Since 2005, we have produced countless live events featuring bedroom and novice producers, close friends, and rising luminaries of the electronic music world. In 2009, we relaunched as a non-profit hosting service for dj mixes – any dj, anywhere in the world, can host a mix for free.

In that span of time, we have never posted an ad on the site. We have taken sponsorship donations in the form of, most often, beer, but never cash. We have used the proceeds from our events to effect site updates and a minmum of regular maintenance.

Over the years, the bedroom producers and shy novices we championed in years past have become some of the most influential names in the world of electronic music. We’re offering this compilation of exclusive tracks as a way of continuing our mission to provide a home for producers and dj’s to host their original music and mixes free of charge, and to be able to continue supporting our local community by bookingg the most forward thinking artists possible for our events. We hope you can help us keep doing all of this, for free, by buying some this complication full of amazing music by some our closest, oldest, and most talented friends.

If you use the site regularly, feel free to pay more. Proceeds will go to hosting and bandwidth fees as well as hurricane sandy relief.

Throwing Snow + Mark E + Kyson + Mohn

Posted by Jakub

I’m at Percussion Lab right now, they stream a radio station ( tune in now ) out of Brooklyn, NY every Monday night run by Praveen( Sepalcure, Braille, Praveen & Benoit ) who is no stranger to the blog since we started. This weekend they will be putting on a show for Unsound Festival which is featuring 2562, Sepalcure, Throwing Snow, and many more, here’s more info on the event if you’re interested it’s called Bass Mutations. This track by Throwing Snow is one of the only ones I could find that I loved that I heard Praveen play on the show, hopefully he’ll have some of this unreleased stuff out soon.

Last night I had a going away party because i’m moving across the country to the Bay Area, We had Praveen play a live Braille set, Sarah from Phantogram debuted her first DJ set, Beacon threw down their best DJ set i’ve ever heard and Sam Valenti IV and his lady Moderna closed out the night, Shaun White was even there, really funny guy, well anyway they threw down this huge slow jam from Mark E, its the Space Dub version, absolutely murdered my face off on the dance floor.

Kyson is a new signing on Moodgadget, one thing I love about him is that he does just a bunch of bootleg remixes on his spare time, my favorite has to be his Washed Out one, it just kind of flutters in this one area and dissolves nicely. His EP Patience is out on May 1st, definitely worth a listen.

The owners of one of my favorite labels of all time are back at it in the studio under the name Mohn. The delicate builds these two have made over the years are mind boggling, if you want more pick up their Burger/Ink material.
