Press Play: Stream the Latest Audio and Video from DJ Rashad, Madlib, Shlohmo, FKA Twigs, and More

There's no need to really sell this edition of Press Play; the artists responsible for this week's selection of fresh audio and video speak for themselves. So, if the likes of Madlib, Shlohmo, DJ Rashad, Mickey Pearce, FKA Twigs, Glacher Lustwerk, Maddslinky, Luke Abbott, Ricardo Villalobos, and Osborne sound like an intriguing bunch, we suggest that all interested parties get to pressing the play buttons located after the jump ASAP.

Chicago artist and Teklife mainstay DJ Rashad collaborated with MoonDoctoR and FreshtillDef on the smoothed-out footwork of "Angel Dust," which will appear as part of a compilation along with tracks from the likes of DJ Manny, DJ Earl, DJ Spinn, and others.

Freddie Gibbs & Madlib's latest tune "Robes" features appearances from Odd Future's Earl Sweatshirt and Domo Genesis.

Produced by burgeoning beatmaker Shlohmo, "Brain" is the latest single from LA singer Banks.
