DJ Rum is UK electronic producer Felix Manuel. His latest drop the Forgetting EP blends a melange of vibes including jazz, juke, and breakbeat rhythms. The track ‘Projection’ sounds like a Cinematic Orchestra piece.

It’s hard to nail down the best track from the genre-hopping EP; all tracks are tasty in their own right. But the shifty pace of ‘Induction’ which made it debut on the Gilles Peterson show may delight your ears as well.

Be sure to check out the crunchy bass on the 2016 B-side release of ‘Abandon Me’ as well:

Doms & Deykers is a collaboration between Dutch electronic producers (Steffi-e) Doms & (Martyn) Deykers. Their new album Evidence From A Good Source contains a slew of rolling techno gems and broken beats.

Says Martyn in an interview with Skiddle:

“The Doms & Deykers sound is a mix of new and old music we love, but more importantly is that it’s focused on melody rather than on soundscape type stuff. Good melodies make a song last a lot longer and we both love lush pads and sharp riffs!  My personal favorite from the record is ‘Sweet Sanctuary’.”

Favorite tracks: Eyes Up, Grime for Dolly, To All Friends and Family, Transative, and Sweet Sanctuary

21-year-old South African producer DJ Lag is helping pioneer a new form of house music called Gqom, which Fader describes as “a ruthless, minimalist, tensely percussive form of dance music. DJ Lag calls it, “a mix of elements of hip-hop and house.”

His new EP on the Goon Club Allstars imprint kicks off with a banging beat of zulu techno. Stream ‘Ghost on the Loose’ above and cop the album right here.

Nickodemus & Alsarah – The Crow

nickodemus

Nickodemus is an electronic music producer and DJ from New York. His latest single ‘The Crow’ finds him collaborating with singer and songwriter Alsarah (Alsarah and the Nubatones). The result is a heavy hitting mixture of African and Arabic sounds. Peep Saagan’s Balearic house remix after the jump.

“The Crow” moves deep into 122 BPM stacking synth house that lyrically tells a story of ones identity in the metaphor of a Crow who looses his/ her feathers & tries to replace them with others. Saagan (the new project by super house producer Andreas Saag) turned in a beautiful melodic remix that turns deep Detroit with the sounds of Crows & Arabic strings.”
