The Lowdown: This Week's XLR8R Top 10 with Flying Lotus, Basement Jaxx, Grimes, and More

Throughout the week, a whole lot of material gets posted here on XLR8R. And while we know—and love—that some hardcore readers will eagerly pour over every single news story, interview, podcast, video, and MP3 download that appears on the site, we also realize that for most people, it's impossible to see everything, which means that some quality XLR8R content is likely to get missed in the hustle and bustle of everyone's daily lives. In the interest of making it easier for everyone to catch up, every Friday we present The Lowdown, a weekly wrap-up of the top 10 tidbits from our site. Read more »

Download: Lunate "Molt"

Label: 100% Silk

Hailing from Bogota, Colombia, Lunate is the latest artist to deliver a cassette for the ever-growing 100% Silk label. Pulled from Lunate's Far Shores outing is "Molt," a woozy piece of funk-laced hardware house. Spanning just over seven minutes, the track glides along with a hypnotic bounce, landing on a set of juicy chords, a restlessly tweaked bassline, and a number of dreamy melodies throughout the course of its run. In addition to offering "Molt" as a free download, the Colombian talent has also elected to offer a new mix, which is available to stream in full after the jump.  Read more »

Download: Diamond Dagger "Red Leather Bop"

For his most recent outing, Dublin-born producer Damien Lynch has decided to set aside his usual alias, Sarsparilla, for a moment in order to turn in a full-length effort under his new Diamond Dagger moniker. Similar to Lynch's other projects, Diamond Dagger's Estate Crudele LP celebrates the tones of vintage synthesizers and classic drum machines, resulting in tracks that lean towards the more nostalgic ends of the dancefloor. Pulled from the record is "Red Leather Bop," a particularly housey number striped with space-born melodies and waves of buzzing synth chords. The tune can be downloaded for free below, while Diamond Dagger's full Estate Crudele LP can currently be grabbed as a name-your-price download over on Bandcamp.
