Ben Daniels and the Sunny Day bunch get all 4AD Records on our asses with this shimmering beaut from their next album, Ashes Grammar. Heavenly voices, astral drones, and thick bass clash and orbit through a sky of pink and purple tones, which provides quite a breathtaking view.

There's something bubbling in the cool waters of Norway, because every month brings more cosmic disco from its chilly climes. diskJokke is one of the country's newer imports, and while he's often lumped with Prins Thomas and Lindstrøm, his sound is much more indebted to the infinite arpeggiations and slow-motion hypnotics of Italy's Daniele Baldelli. In other words, this Norwegian delivers retro space disco at its finest.
Wisconsin quartet All Tiny Creatures cruises up the Krautrock Autobahn, just as Cluster and Kraftwerk did before them, but this time the gears are locked on overdrive and the speedometer needle is bobbing into the red. Fortunately, the upcoming traffic is looking rather light.
Josh Dibb (a.k.a. Deakin) of the Animal Collective compound forks out a stunner of a remix on this track from New York two-piece Palms. With arms and legs dunked in vats of mescaline and syrupy molasses, this beast sure knows how to cut a rug in a freaky way once it gets moving.
To celebrate their upcoming North American stretch with Crosstown Rebels head Damian Lazarus, legendary electronic duo Underworld zapped us his tweaky live take on "Born Slippy" in our direction. It goes without saying that we wish we could be in Las Vegas this Friday for the opening night of their tour.
Straight outta of the Leimert Park district of Los Angeles is some bumpin' west coast shit from Troy "Co$$" Johnson that'll have car trunks rattling up and down the block. Watch out for his Khakis and Taylors 12" that's hitting store shelves in the coming weeks.
Phosho, the more electro-minded moniker of San Francisco's grimey Salva, has joined forces with SF-based MC Cerebral Vortex for the synth-laden "Control." On this dub version of the track, Phosho chops the vocal into fine slices and syncopates them perfectly with percussive synths and straight-forward beats tailor made for the dancefloor.
