Buried in a two hour mix lays this lengthy edit of ‘City Of One’ that Pretty Lights dropped back in ’09 during a live performance in Madison, WI. For those who have dug deep into PL’s musical discography and history, you may have already heard this version. For those who haven’t, its interesting to hear how he used to improvised a bit more when he was using the monome, and how part of this edit has manifested into a new release, PL’s mix of Nas’New York State of Mind’ with Wu-Tang Clan’s ‘C.R.E.A.M.’. Definitely worth a listen. Snag it up for free if you’d like.

Hailing from Gold Coast, Australia, Paces may be starting a new bass-music movement. With tracks combining the sounds of Trap, Future Garage, Future Bass, Trip Hop and Ghettotech, he is conceiving a brand new sound. His track, “Leave,” consists of, in his own words, “ukelele, 808 bass, garagey vibes and pitched down lady-vocals.” We’re not sure if this combination of music has ever been put together before, but if there’s one place that attempts it, it has got to be coming from an island in the pacific. Paces has incredible potential to create a new, original sound for the EDM and electronic music scene—something that many of us have been awaiting.

Was in disbelief when this popped up. With so much talent coming together on one track, there was no way they were going to fall short of not knocking this remix out of the park and far beyond. If you don’t know the song by name but are a 90s baby, you’ll most likely recognize it immediately once you hear. Combining all their crafts, this four way collab resulted in what is easily the most ground-shattering, genre-blending, volatile, and bass heavy remix of this track to date. Snag it up for free if you’d like and how about the music video for the original? 90s

Hailing from the Czech Republic, Karel Nekola has a chest of jazzy instrumental treasures tucked away on his SoundCloud. Theres not much of an audience following his sounds but if you enjoy those simple, funk infused grooves with a smooth beat and some tasty samples, check out what he’s got to offer on his SoundCloud. ‘Game‘ was releases earlier in the year and is a prime example of the kind of flavor he brings to the table, especially at that one minute breakdown.

Lozenge, a young up and coming artist out of Boulder, CO released this track on the free ep “Necessary Censorship” this year. Though its not his newest work, this track has been begging praise for quite some time. Upbeat glitch hop gold that is guaranteed fun to listen to, this track has it all: Immense jest wrenching sound design, enticing video game blips and creative vocal samples that give it an odd creepy quality. Well thought out melodies combine with perfect glitch rhythms to form an tremendously pleasing piece of art. I suggest anyone and everyone scoop up this free ep as soon as possible and keep your eyes and ears on Lozenge for future releases!
