Press Play: Mala, James Blake, Actress, FaltyDL, and More
Well, it looks like we've got a ton of reasons to be excited about this week's edition of Press Play. Namely, James Blake, Actress, Mala, Jon Hopkins, Basement Jaxx, FaltyDL, Andy Stott, Cosmin TRG, fLako, and others uploaded remixes, DJ sets, premieres, music videos, and more for their fans to check out this week. It's a whole lot to take in, so we suggest that everyone begins clicking the play buttons whenever possible, after the jump.
