Download: Downliners Sekt "Eiger Dreams (The Wanderer Reconstruction)"

Label: InFiné

From the looks of it, The Wanderer is a young producer in the early stages of building his catalog up. To that effect, his latest effort is a remix of Barcelona duo Downliners Sekt's "Eiger Dreams," which appears alongside other reworks from patten, Blondes, Chevel and others on a new remix EP for the InFiné label (for the record, we posted Blondes' contribution last month). Appearing in its original form on Downliners Sekt's Silent Ascent LP, "Eiger Dreams" is a particularly dense and winding affair—two traits which The Wanderer only further develops on his remix, adding even more layers of sonic abstraction and warm-blooded grit to the track's ominously disjointed run.

Download: Emufucka "Reflection"

First Listen
Label: Fremdtunes

If Tokyo-based producer Emufucka is one thing, it's unpredictable. The RBMA graduate seems capable of forging beats in any number of shapes and sizes, whether its boisterous dancefloor workouts, futuristic boom-bap, more stoney hip-hop fare, or—in the case of "Reflection"—somewhere between all of that. Pulled from Emufucka's forthcoming Island EP for Fremdtunes, the track features its share of skittering drums, on top of which appear a smattering of harp-like melodic runs, twisted vocal samples, and a any number of liquified synth chords. The result is pleasantly hard to classify, as we imagine much of Emufucka's Island EP will prove to be when it drops on October 20. For those interested in hearing where else the adventurous producer plans to head on his forthcoming release, Emufucka's latest EP can be previewed after the jump.  Read more »
