Download: Alika y Nueva Alianza "Para Bailar Cumbia (El Hijo de la Cumbia Remix)"

Label: Soot

This tune from Argentinian ragga/hip-hop MC Alika and her band Nueva Alianza, featuring some extra sabor courtesy of cumbia prodigy El Hijo de la Cumbia, has been making the internet rounds for awhile now but it's finally been given a proper release on Sonido Martines presents: Nueva Cumbia Argentina - The Buenos Aires Implosion!, a new compilation on DJ /rupture's Soot label. Curated by record-digger extraordinaire Sonido Martines, the 13-track collection further documents Argentina's ongoing love affair with new, experimental, and electronic cumbia sounds and also offers music from Chancha Vía Circuito, Princesa, Daleduro, scene progenitor DJ Taz, and more.

Download: The C90s "10:01"

Label: Relish

Taken off the second compilation from Swiss nu-disco acolytes Relish, a release which also features work from Headman and Prins Thomas among others, "10:01" is a sprawling piece of cosmic disco performed by recent label signees, The C90s. The UK duo may have mostly remixes under their belt to date, but on this track, one of their few originals, The C90s sound like they've been nestled in a bed of handclaps, delayed synths, bouncing beats, and funky bass work since birth—only leaving their comfy home to run around with the likes of Holy Ghost!, Tronik Youth, and Todd Terje.

Label: Disko B

Munich isn't exactly known as a hotbed for global bass sounds, but if upstart trio Schlachthofbronx has its way, that reputation may be due for an update. Read more »

Video: Bot'Ox "Blue Steel"



Frenchman Cosmo Vitelli is known for his top-shelf disco productions, but in recent months he's also been making waves with his more ethereal and oddball Bot'Ox side project. "Blue Steel" is the title track from a forthcoming EP on Vitelli's own I'm a Cliché label, and although the song veers a bit toward "music for a quirky commercial," once we found out the video was basically a series of inflatable objects, household items, and toys getting run over in slow motion, we were sold.

DJ Sega: Rollerskatin' and "party" hatin' with the youthful progenitor of the Philly club sound.

Phillin' It: For years, Philadelphia has been shrugged off as New York's little brother—a place where displaced Brooklynites went in search of cheaper rents, bigger spaces, and a touch less 'tude. But what's emerged over the years is far more than simply a sixth borough. So for this year's special City Issue, we dug around the Fishtown, Northern Liberties, Chinatown, and every other little enclave we could find to bring you the best that Brotherly Love has to offer. Check back every few days for a new feature from the east coast's newest hotbed. Read more » 

Podcast 110: Zombie Disco Squad

Earlier this week we peppered the boys of Zombie Disco Squad with questions for our weekly Inbox feature. While that displayed Lucas Hunter's and Nat Self's lighter side, we figured the only way to really showcase their hip-hop-flavored and tropical-tinged house sound was to enlist their DJ services for the XLR8R Podcast series.

Download: Pacheko "Lockdown (6Blocc Remix)"

On 6Blocc's remix of Venezuelan producer Pacheko's bass-heavy "Lockdown" single, the LA-based veteran DJ/producer stays true to the original, slow-grooving bassline and reverberated percussion—only going so far to drop in the occasional double-time beat and a dancehall vocal sample. Taken from the fourth volume of Seclusiasis' ongoing Street Bass Anthems series, 6Blocc's re-work fits well among the record's other lazer-dub tracks by Starkey and DNAEBeats

Download: Dinowalrus "BEAD"

Label: Kanine

A swirl of dreamy arpeggiated synths and sparse percussion lead us into "BEAD," a track taken from budding Brooklyn trio Dinowalrus' debut album, %. The song's hazy electronics, bleating vocal attack, and occasional clarinet squawk create the perfect arena in which the band can unleash its tribal/post-punk fusion reminiscent of The Rapture, albeit on a heavy dose of psychedelics and Tangerine Dream records.
