Another week has passed, so another edition of Press Play is once again available to peruse. Having culled the best streaming audio and video which recently appeared on the internet, we've got a lineup of artists that's not to be sniffed at. Motor City mainstay Stacey Pullen is sharing his forthcoming EP; Salva has a wild mix of club-ready jams; James Holden is teasing his second album with a brand-new single; we've got a fresh video from London technoist Max Cooper; LA beatmaker Ras G is giving everyone a taste of his latest beat tape; and there are plenty of other bits from the likes of Nosaj Thing, Benjamin Damage & Doc Daneeka, Suzanne Kraft, Recondite, and Clouds, among others. It's all available to experience with the push of a button, after the jump.
