Download: Moon Bounce "Gone (feat. Steffaloo)"

First Listen

Philadelphia-based "actor, composer, multi-instrumentalist, and producer" Corey Regensburg (a.k.a. Moon Bounce) is apparently a very busy kid. The 22-year-old artist somehow found the time to drop his debut EP, Darn Your Best Frock, about five months ago, and he's already sharing new tunes with the world, including "Gone (feat. Steffaloo)." The track holds true to the choppy, frantic, Prefuse 73-style production of Moon Bounce's earlier work, but utilizes a bit of extra reverb and heavy compression to further liven up his already bubbly music.

Review: T. Williams "Break Broke"

The Local Action imprint has carved out a solid niche in its year-plus of existence, and T. Williams has undeniably been the label's top act. Considering that Williams also heads up his own equally impressive imprint, Deep Teknologi, the London-based producer has pulled off quite the feat. "Break Broke" is his third single for Local Action, and finds him stretching his sonic repertoire. Read more »

Download: Toro Y Moi "All Alone (M A N I K Edit)"

Admittedly, XLR8R lost some interest in Toro Y Moi (pictured above) when Chaz Bundick decided to take his project out of the bedroom and create something resembling the output of an actual band. (How dare he!) Nevertheless, we're digging this edit put together by NYC DJ/producer M A N I K, who has taken Bundick's "All Alone," a track from the just-released Freaking Out EP, and spruced it up for the dancefloor. Stretching out the original song's R&B vibes, M A N I K has put a bouncy, filter-disco spin on the tune, creating something that sounds like Daft Punk relaxing by the pool at a summertime BBQ.

Video: Maceo Plex "Can't Leave You"



Let's start with the bad news. The new Maceo Plex video is another one of those found-footage collages that we've all seen a million times in recent years. The good news is that this one stars an octopus and mixes in vintage clips of a scientist and some pin-up girls. Read more »
