- Words: Patric Fallon
Those of you on the hunt for the cream of this week's crop of fresh sights and sounds need look no further than today's edition of Press Play. Inside, we've got exclusive premieres, unreleased original tracks, top-notch remixes, free downloads, and well-crafted DJ sets from the likes of Teebs, Kuedo, Citizen, Thom Yorke, Ifan Dafydd, Philipp Gorbachev, Jamie Lidell, Bodhi, and Kahwe, among others. You'd be wise to give it all a spin, after the jump.
With the description "demo crap..mess..etc," Brainfeeder-affiliated Southern California beatmaker Teebs posted this brief—albeit bewitching—clip to his SoundCloud.
Thom Yorke's mix for Dazed Digital hit the internet this week, giving the world a large helping of unreleased solo material and never-before-heard remixes, among other tasty bits.
Berlin-based producer Kuedo remixed Gazelle Twin's new song "I Turn My Arm" into a gauzy, beatless dreamscape.
If you're in the mood for some big room house, look no further than these clips for Waze & Odyssey's upcoming Be There EP for MadTech, which arrives complete with a remix from standout UK producer Citizen on February 25.
Here's a one-off track from Welsh artist Ifan Dafydd, lifted from a compilation on the way from Recordiau Lliwgar.
Dan Snaith's increasingly prolific Jiaolong label shares a stream of its forthcoming record from Shangan Electro honcho Nozinja (a.k.a. Xitsonga Dance).
Here's a teaser for the as-yet-unreleased (not to mention unfinished) Beatz documentary, which—if funded—will aim to "give to the public a general overview of electronic music through the interviews of... artists, distributors, shops, labels, bookers, and club and festival promoters, all the people who make this industry exist."
This shuffling dance cut is "Yew" by Leeds newcomer Kahwe, taken from his upcoming Driving Me Wild EP for Ajuna Deep.
