If you havent already heard Sun Glitters newest single, 'Eventide (feat. Nia & Charlee)', I highly suggest you cop it now; its free! The beautifully structured almsot 4 min track drifts out and about this throbbing underlying refrain that feels ever so meditative, reeling the listener in and putting the mind at complete ease. Download it below or on his bandcamp at a 'name your price deal'...

Jay Curry drops a brand new free track on his bandcamp from his possible upcoming release, CheetahPrintRose$. 'Anahiem Harbour' is a sensual glitchwaving number that carries out a feel-good beat and a vastly lo-fi terrain of a melody. Too good to be this short.

UPDATE 8-9-11 :: CheetahPrintRose$ is now available in full release. Download and stream below...

Taking the dubstep/grime genre (or whatever you want to label it) to new heights, Zomby’s debut on 4AD records, Dedication, really is one for the books. Evidently different from his previous releases, this one defines his electronic musical career most proficiently. Crafting and mastering his sound to it’s fullest potential, he complies his mystifying essence with a spiritualized zeal that makes it that much more enjoyable to listen to. His dark dubbing escalations and bleary refrains have finally come to fruition and are in full effect throughout this whole album. If you enjoy Zomby and everything he has to offer, this release by all means will not disappoint but rather impress like no other. Purchase and stream the whole album over here. Here's my personal favorite off the release...

I recently got word of this cat, bue-radley on soundcloud. Super ill vibes. His sound reeks of abstract dreamscaping freeness, absolutely free from all limitations, showcasing extraordinary hubbubs and dins. One of his most recent tracks, 'Cactus Water', is a meditative number that stretches its melodies like wings to the ends of a galatic sound range unknown to anyone but Ian B. himself. Such great sounds coming from his realm. Listen and download all of his tracks for free on his soundcloud.

Joy O releases his two track 12" featuring, 'Sicko Cell' on the a-side and 'Knock Knock' on the flip side. This is out on SWAMP81 records and you can purchase it here. 'Knock Knock' wraps its rattling basslines around its obscure sampled vocals that climb up a pulsating cadence of bass based melodies, and they just don't seem to ever get old. Dancefloor feel-good rhythms for the win. God damn Joy O.

Ritmo Sportivo's beat minimalist, Sumeo, drops his EP entitled, Birds. Spaced-out minimalistic beats and raw earthly textures is exactly what this 7-track piece comprises of. Sumeo manages to morph and mend these long and drawn out rhythms into a easy listening atmosphere that work cohesively to create a complete kind of its own. Such beautiful work done on this. Purchase, stream and download the whole EP over at bandcamp.

Juan Maclean emerges with a new side project under the name, Peach Melba. He sets up a series of 12"'s that he considered too "housey" for his normal realm, and as a result he fabricates, 'Can't Let Go', which is out now on DFA records. The original on the a-side and then 2 stripped down dub blueprints on the b-side. Such a fun track. This, 'Can't Let Go' (Dub), track is a steel drum pounding number that stretches its notes for a whopping 8 minutes and seems to never end. It's overwhelmingly catchy. Purchase and stream it over here.

Don't know why I've waited so long to blog about SF's dream poppin duo, The Bilinda Butchers, their sound is so perfect for this time of year. Their most recent release, Regret, Love, Guilt, Dreams; is filled with My Blood Valentine sounding material and encompasses a consistent nostalgic appeal that makes these melodies sound ever so new and pristine. Can't get enough of the second track, 'tulips', its my favorite out the bunch. Perfect stuff to have playing on these sunny days and nights, inside and out. Download at a 'name your price' deal on their bandcamp or stream and download the whole thing directly below...

Dam Mantle recently released his post-boogie EP entitled, WE, on the GetMe! label. The highlight of the four track piece, 'Not A Word', is a unclassified bass number that hits every line with its drone boogie-down cadences and almost spooky time frames. Such a neat track. Stream and download, 'Not A Word', and the rest of the EP down below. Purchase it here.

London based, Weird World Records, recently updated their soundcloud with Washed Out remixes. Star Slinger's revision of 'Eyes Be Closed' is an absolute gem, and nothing less is expected from the man. All of his remixes are beautifully beatastic, but this one I wish was longer. Great stuff. Here's a low quality rip...

L.A. based singer/songwriter, Vida Jafari, recently released her EP, Movin., on her bandcamp for free. The five track EP features two tracks produced by the greatest, Knxwledge, and they are ever so on point. Vida somewhat reminds me of Nite Jewel with her night vibing vocals and get down ditties but sets herself apart with her jazzy beat backgrounds. Trouble-free nu-soul themes that speak ever so clearly beginning to end. Stream and download the whole thing below...

Stefan Ringer aka Rekchampa racked up a banging selection of tracks for this issue of our DECKast. The 30min mix leaks with spatial bass based jams and funky night cranking anthems. Such a party starter. Turn up your volume and turn on that bass. Here's what he had to say about the mix...
"The mix is a collection of 2step,UKG,UK Funky,and Dubstep(no wobbs). I like smooth tunes with a rhythm that is intelligent. I get tired of listening to a tune if it sounds generic..or doesnt have an element of soul to it. You can tell when a tune sounds soulless it just doesn't capture your attention. I chose these tracks because they are interesting, intelligent, soulful, and they are funky.They get your body moving. All of these things are what I try to incorporate in my own tracks."

James Blake releases new single, Order/Pan, on UK's Hemlock label. Theres no doubt that both of these tracks fall back into the category of Blake's original sound. 'Order' lures in a funky syncopated rhythm with an underlying grainy shaker that supports the track's spontaneous throbbing bass breaks and timely cowbell count-offs. Future bass for the dancefloor folks. Purchase and stream 'Pan' over here.

Flying Lotus did a mix entitled, Lovers Melt, for Stones Throw, a few months back. Because it was so damn essential and utterly great, he has whipped up a second installment of the mix, Lovers Melt II. This is what he said about the mix...via Brainfeeder.

Radiohead, is to release, The Kings Of Limbs Remixes, on 12" and digital download, 4.7.11. Featuring two mind-bending remixes of, 'Little By Little' and 'Lotus Flower', by no other than Caribou and Jacques Greene. Two absolutely stunning revisions of the original compositions. Caribou's rework of 'Little By Little' saddles down into a subterranean of swamped reverting basslines and rhythms. Thom's vocals drown in and out creating a eerie moonless dance number that keeps your body grooving throughout. Turn up the bass on this one. Purchase on 12" and digital release here, when available.

Evan Adams aka Top Girls, recently released his single, RISE, featuring two tracks. My favorite out of the two, 'Bordello', falls into a soulful lo-fi bass mantra that gives off How To Dress Well sounding vocals and a grainy Purity Ring-like melody. Some listening worthy stuff if you enjoy those two artists alike. Check out and listen to his other sounds on his bandcamp.
