German electronic artist Orson Wells ‘Blend’ provides a flashback to early 1990s Prodigyesque techno, with a proper step toward vibrating house music. According to the Bandcamp page, the album artwork is a hodgepodge of stickers “found in car liveries.”

Andy Stott – Selfish

Always pushing forward. That’s how you could describe Manchester electronic producer Andy Stott‘s music. He gave up making formulaic club tracks to focus on pionneering weirder “knackered house,” combining “sludgy tempos, grainy sounds, dense atmospheres.”

He continues exploring new sounds on his latest album Too Many Voices. Perhaps the most interesting track is ‘Selfish,’ where Stott shapeshifts between grime and a distorted dancehall beat. Pay extra attention to catch the noise in between.

Shigeto – What Are We Made Of?

image via Bandcamp

Originally meant to be released on his next record, Detroit-based electronic producer and drummer Shigeto decided to drop a melancholic but hopeful tune early given the Presidential results last week.

This song was finished on november 8th, 2016 with the intention of using it for my next record. i sampled an inspiration to me, detroit artist, tyree guyton speaking at an event a couple months ago and used it in the intro because it spoke to me.
on the morning of november 10th a light went off in my head and realized the song had to be let go.

no matter how i feel or what i’m thinking about the 2016 election.
no matter who i voted for or even if i voted at all…

i’m thinking about what i’m made of right now.
i’m thinking about what we all are made of right now, what the world is made of right now.
i’m thinking about who i want to be and how i want to play my small part in this world right now.

this song and message comes from a place of love.

ALL donations for the track will be donated to Planned Parenthood

Thanks Shigeto and the Ghostly crew.

New Zealand brothers Ben & Louis Helliker-Hales are Chaos In The CBD. Their newest EP dropped earlier this week on the Japanese imprint Mule Music.

The track ‘Subterranean Storm,’ also the name of the record, continues to showcase the group’s mastery of producing soothing and restrained deep house music.

I highly recommend digging through the duo’s Soundcloud page and listening to the group’s other Balearic delights such as the jazz-infused tracks 78 to Stanley Bay, Midnight in Peckham, and Trust is Key.

Snag the Subterranean Storm 12″ here
