Press Play: The xx, L-Vis 1990, John Tejada, Lapalux, and More

We've got some exclusive premieres, record streams, high-profile remixes, well-crafted DJ sets, unreleased tunes, and more in this week's edition of Press Play. Take a look after the jump for streams and downloads from the likes of UK darlings The xx, Night Slugs boss L-Vis 1990, The Weeknd collaborator and Jacques Greene affiliate Zodiac, Bulgarian house artist Kink, techno veteran John Tejada, Hotflush signee Sigha, and Brainfeeder's Lapalux, among others.


This radio rip of Four Tet's excellent remix of "Angels" by UK hush-pop trio The xx showed up on Radio1 recently, and is more or less taking over the internet right now.


Posted with the dubious announcement "forthcoming sometime," this heavy, "submarine" tune premiered on Bok Bok's recent Rinse FM appearance, and comes from fellow Night Slugs head L-Vis 1990.



Techno veteran John Tejada unleashes his latest LP for Kompakt, The Predicting Machine, as a stream on LA radio station KCRW.


Before he drops his second EP for Brainfeeder, Essex beatmangler Lapalux gives us the first leak from Some Other Time, called "Forgetting and Learning Again," as a stream and download.


Check out our premiere of a 12" set to drop on November 24 via Pinch's oft-reliable Tectonic imprint, V.I.V.E.K's bass-addled "Against the Tide" b/w "Trinity".


The latest signee on Jacques Greene's Vase label, Zodiac (a.k.a. The Weeknd collaborator Jeremy Rose) previews each of the five moody cuts on his forthcoming self-titled EP.


Here's a mix from Bulgarian house patron Kink that just landed on our radar, one which the DJ/producer crafted ahead of his appearance next weekend at Parisian club night Social Club.


Burgeoning London minimal technoist Sigha streams the first leak from his forthcoming debut LP for Hotflush, Living with Ghosts.


Magda's collaborative imprint with March Houle and Troy Pierce, Items & Things, announces the impeding release of an acid-heavy EP from Brazilian duo Click Box, along with this preview of all of its tracks.


Fade to Mind affiliate Massacoormaan delivered the music hub's second mix in an ongoing series, a 49-minute DJ set that leans heavily on inflated tempos, undulating bass, heavy percussion, and wild sound effects.
