If you like your beats chill and you're not on this Jesse Futerman, you're doing it wrong. This is his newest on Jus Like Music, but there's a whole catalog of gems out there on the interweb.
This is the raw, loose garage rock of summertime. And what better metaphor for summer is there than a bunch of topless (NSFW) Japanese people racing on motorcycles. He's on tour with the Black Angels starting now. God bless America.
If I went back in time to 2003 (which was probably right around the time when El-P's Fantastic Damage was in constant rotation) and told myself that 10 years later Killer Mike and El-P would be one of the hottest collabs of the 21st century, I would've told myself to fuck off.

This new Man Mantis track is really nice. He's got a knack for ethereal-yet-beat-driven tunes. Reference the "New York Biotropes" video that used a tune of his for the soundtrack.
Grab a copy of "Silver Dream."
Do remember those Deeper Concentrations turntablism compilations that came out about 10 years ago? This is like a 21st century addition.

Check out the whole album, which is a free download.
