Drama Society ­ Crescendo (Instrumental Mix) (Fine)
Drama society fuse together some amazing underground electronic sounds with left of center vocals to bring out a cutting edge sound for the future.  I love their original and have been hammering the instrumental version of this everywhere.

The Juan Maclean ­ Tito’s Way (Booka Shade Remix) (DFA)
From the stable of “can do no wrong”, The Juan Maclean is riding high on the DFA train. Booka Shade are excellent here. Rolling basslines & tripped out vocal effects create this late night monster!

Jori Hulkkonen feat. Nick Triani ­ Science (Jesper Dahlback Remix) (F Comm)
Jori has been around for awhile and continues to make fantastic music. The original is a beautiful ambient excursion. The Jesper remix drives this into prime time with ease.

Sergei ­ 5AM (Regular)
Regular is a label from Spain that I have been loving the past 18 months.
Sergei delivers again here with a heavy, yet pumping creation. So dark and deep, but don’t be fooled, this has mucho, mucho energy. Essential!

Blues Explosion ­ Crunchy (TJM !!! Remix) (Mute)
!!! take their psychedelic bass driven approach and twist Blues Explosion into oblivion. I have had to go in and re-edit this to play out, and it has easily become one of the more devastating records in my sets and will be all summer.

Out Hud ­ One Life To Leave (40oz Edit) (Kranky)
Along with !!!, another favorite group that is pushing the envelope of what real bands can do on stage with electronic and live instruments. This one is edited for her pleasure.

Cari Lekebusch ­ Darryl Sez (Hybrid)
Another driving and lush atmosphere filled track from Mr. Lekebusch. Pitched down of course for all kinds of grooveyness.

Chris Udoh ­ Everyday Of The Week (W/L)
CU delivers an evil twisted monster! Again!

Swag ­ Drum Hydraulics (Tyrant)
Deep and bubbly, tripy and lovely.

Cagedbaby ­ 16 Lovers (Radio Slave Remix) (Southern Fried)
Radio Slave showing their chops with a peak time bomb.
