Press Play: Stream the Latest Audio and Video from DJ Funk, Com Truise, DJ Zinc, Dâm-Funk, and More
We feel pretty good about the selection of sights and sounds featured in this week's edition of Press Play, as there are plenty of record streams, premieres, videos, free downloads, DJ mixes, and fresh original productions. Not to mention that it all comes from especially talented artists across the spectrum of electronic music—including the likes of DJ Funk, Com Truise, John Tejada, Nina Kraviz, Feadz, Container, Dâm-Funk, Audion, and DJ Zinc, among others. Everything that Press Play has in store can be heard after the jump.
Before it's reissued on Strut's upcoming Dance Mania tribute compilation, revisit DJ Funk's wild ghetto-house classic "The Original Video Clash: Video Clash II (Street Mix)."
Newcomers Hollow & Akimbo have been treated to a typically synth-soaked remix of their "Singularity" single by Ghostly affiliate Com Truise.
This mix of vintage tunes was posted to DJ Zinc's SoundCloud this week along with the following message: "This is Chapter 4 of my Trust Me I Was There mix series, the second part (of three) from 1989, an outstanding year for beats. Check out what I've always considered [to be] the first jungle tune near the end (then argue with me that it's not, no doubt...)."
7 Days of Funk, the collaborative G-funk project from rap superstar Snoop Dogg and boogie specialist Dâm-Funk, dropped this brand-new video for silky album cut "I'll Be There for 4 U."
Taken from her performance on New Year's Day at Amsterdam's Awakenings party, Nina Kraviz has shared an hour-and-a-half portion of her set to stream online.
German party-starter Boys Noize has a remix album on the way early next month, and this version of his "Stop" tune by Ghostly stalwart Matthew Dear's Audion project is counted among the star-studded tracklist.
John Tejada just dropped his new single for Kompakt, and is spreading the word by sharing a stream of b-side cut "Now We're Here."
Ed Banger stalwart Feadz unleashes the skittering and drum-heavy "Eastside" tune ahead of next week's release of his Instant Alpha LP.
Bubblin' Up noise-techno producer Container has a 12" on the way via Mute imprint Liberation Technologies, and the punishing, blown-out grooves of "Slush" will help fill out the record's a-side when it's released on January 20.
After signing with Brooklyn's shadowy Sacred Bones label, Australian duo Prolife unleashed the minimal, industrial-tinged techno of "Overheated."
Gabriel Garzón-Montano is a brand-new artist on up-and-coming imprint Styles Upon Styles, and this is a video for his smoothly soulful "Everything Is Everything," a song from his upcoming Bishouné: Alma del Huila EP.
Belgian label Vlek compiles its entire catalog from 2013 into one reasonably priced compilation, featuring quality experimental tunes from Sagat, Squeaky Lobster, and more.
Just last week, UK producer Nochexxx announced his forthcoming Thrusters LP for RAMP, and has now shared the warped, beat-driven sounds of album cut "Rinse Dreams."
Brooklyn singer/producer James K premired this homemade video for her recent "Drunktrack" tune on Vogue this week, and we liked it enough to share it with our readers, too.
