Download a Free Collection of Bootleg Edits from Lockah

We've sung the praises of Lockah quite a bit during the course of our Best of 2014 coverage, including his "If Loving U Is Wrong, I Don't Want to Be Wrong" tune as one of the top tracks of the year, and ultimately selecting his debut LP, Yahoo or the Highway, as one of our favorite releases of the past 12 months. Now, the UK producer has shared a free collection of bootleg edits, which finds Lockah reshaping the likes of Oneohtrix Point Never, FaltyDL, and Girl Unit into custom dancefloor affairs.

XLR8R's Best of 2014: Releases (15 - 1)

Yesterday, we continued our mammoth Best of 2014 series by kicking off our annual rundown of our favorite releases from the year gone by. Putting this list together was no easy task, especially when one considers that today's frenetic music marketplace often makes it hard to find the time to even listen to a full release, let alone properly appreciate one. We live in a time when quality music sometimes only has a shelf life of a few days, which means that for something like an album (or even an EP) to really stick, it has to be something truly special. As we've often noted, declaring anything to be a definitive "best" is an impossible and highly subjective task, but the releases we've chosen here were generally the ones that we not only enjoyed hearing, but also made time to listen to again and again. (For the sake of clarity, we should again note that we're considering a "release" to be anything with more than one original song on it.) In the end, we settled on 30 selections, the first half of which were unveiled yesterday. Read on to see which records grabbed a place in the top 15, and of course, which release was crowned with the year's top honors. Read more »
