This new EP, Telepathic Octopus, from Denver-based producer Glucose is crazy. Some of the most ruckus-inducing, old school IDM/Jungle possible, like Squarepusher put out a record on Jungle Sky before flipping his shit.
Sometimes, when you're driving around the middle of nowhere, you need some hypnotic post-rock goodness to get lost in thought for a few minutes. If you like Tortoise or Godspeed You Black Emperor then you're down with this.

One of my favorite hip hop songs of recent memory. No jive. If you're not on that El-P x Killer Mike R.A.P. Music, you need to be. Politics and hip hop are inextricably intertwined, regardless of what Wayne or Gucci says. Reaganomics is a major part of hip hop's origin. Understand that.
Not a household name, except among hip hop heads, Ski Beatz did a bunch of production for Jay-Z's Reasonable Doubt. Yeah, it's like that. He's been busy lately. This project, Endless Summer, with Tabi Bonney is slick, and there's an EP with Camp Lo he just did. I'm really feeling the opening tune, "On Jupiter."
The Jesse Futerman has a new EP, titled Fuse the Witches, coming soon. Don't sleep on it. His last EP was a killer. Groovy instrumentals in the vein of Shadow, et al. Here's a preview of his upcoming project.
Go back and check out his Super Basement EP too.
Some Louisiana hot sauce right hurr. Funk jammers Galactic mix it up with Mystikal and Mannie Fresh. Too bad Mystikal is back in jail, because nobody comes close to his delivery.
This here is some low key summertime heat from Tabi Bonney and Yasiin Bey (bka Mos Def). Ski Beatz provides the steel drum heavy track. Enjoy.
I first saw Birds and Batteries a couple years ago at the Art Bar in Columbia, SC while they were touring with Great American/Low Red Land (RIP). They've made some lineup changes over the years, but the end results are steadily improving. This new tune is sort of Gary Numan on nitrous oxide...
Hudson Mohawke and Lunice join forces as TNGHT. Why aren't vowels cool anymore? Doesn't matter because this track is a beast - like ghetto tech with a sense of humor.
Oddisee remixes Marvin Gaye. Niiice. This will be part of a free EP out next week called Odd Renditions, which is an advance promo for his new full length People Hear What They See dropping in June.
Mello Music Group stays killing it. Gensu Dean x Homeboy Sandman & 7evenThirty. This beat is crazy (my guess is that sample originates with an Italian film score), and everyone rips it up.

Stumbled across Force Publique after Alex from ManCub mentioned working with James Wayne (1/2 of FP) in an interview. This is from a 2010 demo and it lands in the confluence of Joy Division and Adult. Electro-post-punk with an appropriately grimy texture. I'm loving the first track, "Ache."
Check out the whole project here.
New visuals for a tune from ATL/SAV beat maestro P.Villa. The majority of the video is done with animated oil paint. It works with the synth-y low-key vibe. This is in the chill room all day.
