Download: Juan Ramos "The Mariner"

First Listen

Berlin-based American Juan Ramos is set to debut on San Francisco's Friends with Benefits label (who recently dropped a 12" from Hard Ton backed with a Matrixxman remix) next week with his The Mariner (For G.G.) EP. Here we have the record's title cut, a swimming piece of house which offers an alluring assemblage of water-logged melodies amidst its breezy swing. Fortified by a thick kick and evolving layers of percussion, "The Mariner" patiently builds a dense atmosphere across its six-minute run, resulting in a track that is unassuming in its presence, but with a groove that is nearly impossible to escape. Ramos' full The Mariner (For G.G.) EP will see its official release on July 29, and can be previewed via the player found after the jump.  Read more »

Download: Animals as Leaders "The Price of Everything and the Value of Nothing (Crushfield Remix)"

First Listen

Somewhere amongst the bushes and rocks pictured above is Crushfield, a Canadian producer who here offers his take on Animals as Leaders' "The Price of Everything and the Value of Nothing." On his rework, Crushfield loosely drapes the original track's math-rock-style guitar atop heavy-handed rhythmic elements: straightforward kicks and snares trade off hits as crisp hats fill the space in between. Eventually, the procession is met by subtle layers of sneaky arpeggios and a thick, restless bassline, which helps guide the track to the end of its five-minute run. Having appeared on a split 12" for the New Kanada label earlier this year, Crushfield will release another record through the imprint early next year, but not before delivering his debut live performance at the New Kanada label night in Toronto this weekend; more info here
