  • mp3: Oneohtrix Point Never – “Blue Drive” MP3

    Year-end list decompression time courtesy of this soothing track from Oneohtrix Point Never, whose “I Only Have Eyes for You” deconstruction was one of the most beautiful and moving things we heard all year. “Blue Drive” originally appeared on this split cassette release, and the track also makes an appearance on 0PN’s limited/sold-out Rifts 5xLP vinyl box set. Grab it [via XLR8R], and...

  • mp3: Andy Stott x Recycle Culture – “Leaving” MP3

    Recycle Culture drops a dizzyingly blissful “uplift” of Andy Stott’s haunting Luxury Problems closer “Leaving” (“knackered house” purists can steer clear of this one). In addition to his brilliant official remixes this year for Korallreven Elite Gymnastics, this is just the latest in a line of emotional trance re-works from the anonymous(?) producer, for the likes of Tay...

  • mp3: Joe Moks – “Boys and Girls” MP3

    Afrobeat is another source of endless comps (some of my favs being “The World Ends” & “Bambara Mystic Soul“) but what sets this one apart is it’s taken from later and skews more towards proper disco. The LP is over a year old at this point but it gets so much play in my house I had to mention it. Uchenna at Comb & Razor was kind enough to let me share my favorite track with you...

  • mp3: Pye Corner Audio – “They Know” MP3

    Pye Corner Audio has had a great year; the first two volumes of his Black Mill Tapes were reissued on vinyl by Type and he recently dropped another solid full-length Sleep Games on Ghost Box. Whether you’re a fan of UK soundtrack/library music or not, his work is so genuinely musical that it transcends the style. Martin sent over this unreleased track “They Know“, a nice Carpenter-esque drone, for...

    L.A.’s 100% Silk — our favorite purveyors of “diamond-life dance & bliss-disco” — just dropped their final batch of 2012 releases, including this bright, perfectly sweet/sensual house-pop collab from Magic Touch & “heavenly weirdo wizardress” Sapphire Slows.

    Empress Of is a new “project of sight sound” from Brooklyn’s Lorely Rodriguez. She’s caused a small stir here and in other places over the last week or so with her enchanting, anonymously-uploaded “colorminutes,” a set of fleeting but beautiful glimpses at Empress Of’s playfully intriguing pop that is certainly worth your next 13 minutes.The soaring “Don’t...

    Here’s the new two-part single from Montreal’s Blue Hawaii, taken from the duo’s dark and beautiful forthcoming full-length Untogether, due early next year (their like-minded Montreal homies Grimes TOPS are already very fond of the record). The first track to be unveiled from the new album, the otherworldly “In Two” is a stark, coldly enchanting, bass-heavy pop gem that seamlessly ...

    You may already be familiar with producer Recycle Culture from his perfect, trance-y official Elite Gymnastics remix/cover (or from his stellar re-works for Korallreven, Grimes, and Julianna Barwick). Here, on this breathlessly uplifting and cathartic rave-ready remix, he injects some hopeful energy into the xx’s heartbreaking “Chained,” somehow maintaining all of the feeling the xx conjured on th...
