As we’ve already mentioned, electronic music producer Four Tet has a new album coming out titled Beautiful Rewind, and there’s a new track from it streaming above. While it maintains the particularly rigid assembly of electronic sequences that have been prevalent in Tet’s recent works, it does smooth things out a bit with some beautiful female vocal samples. Enjoy!
Even though I’m not completely in love with the new James Holden album, I am impressed by the simultaneously primeval and futuristic vibe he’s been able to evoke on most of the tracks here.

New from Hotflush Recordings, this latest single from Dense & Pika carries a dark tone with it’s hypnotic grooves and atmospheric synthesizers. Though the vocal sample played throughout this thing is an obvious call to action, the song itself feels too shadowy for a carefree dance session. But, hey, whatever floats your boat. Enjoy!
On Immunity, electronic music producer Jon Hopkins focuses in on the worlds of house and techno, fusing the characteristics of these genres with some pretty atmospheric and grandiose keyboards.

Ceephax takes a break from his typical acid techno-tinged song production style to create a collection of electronic pieces that sound a bit more epic, cinematic. Numerous cuts of Cro Magnox sound as if they could serve as the perfect soundtrack to a b-movie produced in the 80s–preferably some kind of action, sci-fi hybrid.
Even funkier tracks like “Natural Specturm” have a beautifully eerie quality to them. It’s nice to know that this guy can produce danceable tracks as well as stuff that’s a little more cerebral. Enjoy!
On the Knife’s latest full-length, the Swedish electronic music duo goes absolutely insane with a 98 minute album that features a ton of long, linear art pop tracks that overload the senses and challenge expectations.
