Press Play: Daphni, Wiley, Nautiluss, Glimpse, and More
- Words: Glenn Jackson
Record streams, remixes, DJ sets, unreleased tunes, music videos, and more fill out the space of this week's Press Play, with an array of excellent artists—like Wiley, Nautiluss, Daphni, !!!, Steve Summers, Ejeca, Glimpse, Mark Fell, and others—contributing their fresh productions and well-curated selections. We think the music on offer is well worth the time it takes to start clicking those play buttons, which can be done after the jump.
This week, Border Community mainstay James Holden's latest single, "Retana," received a remix treatment at the hands of Dan Snaith's Daphni project.
