The latest installment to the Fall Mix Series originates from our Canadian neighbor, trog’low. The Vancouver based producer touts a vast catalog of productions sourced with a fervid appreciation for jazz, classical and hip-hop. With several compilations already under his belt, trog’low appears to be in the preliminary stages of releasing additional material, suggested by the title of the mix, ‘Sparkling Adventures 2’, a would-be successor to his previous ‘Sparkling Adventures‘ debut. The mix finds itself laced with a horde of unreleased content, upbeat in rhythm and colorful in melody, serving as a superlative tracklist for daily adventures.

One of the most elusive collectives in electronic music has finally decided to step out from the shadows where they’ve been lurking since the smashing success of their previous album, Welcome Reality, tapered off. That’s right folks, Nero is back, and the electronic world is abuzz to say the least. After releasing a long-awaited single, ‘Satisfy’ a few weeks ago, the English bass trio—made up of Daniel Stephens, Joe Ray, and vocalist Alana Watson—have treated their fans to a tantalizing hour-long mix of tracks that have inspired their current music journey. In true Nero fashion, the mix is deep, dark, and technical with incredible attention paid to the little details. Due to its somewhat frightening vibe, this is not likely to suit everyone’s fancy, but if you are a Nero fan, you probably know what you’re getting into. All I can say is that their upcoming album is going be just as intense and unique as Welcome Reality was in 2011. You can buy the mix below, but I’d recommend listening before making your purchase. Buckle up and enjoy the ride!
