Label: Tru Thoughts

Will Holland (a.k.a. Quantic) once again steers us through the tropic regions of the globe with this track from his upcoming album, Tradition in Transition. This time around he successfully excavates the musical territory of the Caribbean and Latin America and infuses those sounds with a fresh seasoning of funk and soul elements.

Download: Exclusive: Glasser "Apply (Lemonade remix)"

The ghettotech psych-hipsters in NYC’s Lemonade have been active on the remix front as of late, with every track they touch turning to pure gold. With that in mind, the trio’s remix of this track from True Panther's resident chanteuse Glasser (a.k.a. Cameron Mesirow) is the most radiant nugget in the pot. Not included on the recently released Apply 12", this remix is exclusive to XLR8R
