Download: Martin Eyerer, Namito, and Stephan Hinz "Seven Lives (Butch Remix)"

What at first sounds like a new song by African likembé group Konono N°1 is in fact a remix from German tech-house producer Butch, an artist recently featured in XLR8R. Butch's re-work of the collaborative track "Seven Lives" by Martin Eyerer, Namito, and Stephan Hinz is a subtle-but-strong tech-house experience that relies heavily on it's repetitive percussion loop and the occasional dip into a bath of filtered synths. The track was pulled from Namito's new Eleven Remixed EP—go here to check out the rest, including remixes from Marc Romboy, Daniele Papini, and more.

Download: Pollination "Sinister Skies (Zoomzip Remix)"

On this remix of "Sinister Skies," the opening track from noisy beat-smith Pollination's forthcoming Inca Orange EP, Southern California's Zoomzip brings the tempo down with a style reminiscent of the kaleidoscopic tracks found in Boards of Canada's catalog. A head-nodding beat and floating flute loop act as the centerpiece for Zoomzip's hazy remix, while indiscernible field recordings fill the gaps in the rhythm.

Download: Kid Koala Presents The Slew "You Turn Me Cold"

A few days ago we debuted a track from the tour-only album, 100%, by Canadian mix-master Kid Koala and members of retro-rock outfit Wolfmother. Dubbed The Slew, this touring performance is a beat-heavy amalgamation of crunching guitars and by-the-book hip-hop. Our second installment of The Slew's debut, "You Turn Me Cold," sounds like a kid playing around with his dad's Led Zepplin records, but in a way that rules and won't get you grounded.

Download: Chrissy Murderbot "Thighs feat. Miles Bonny"

Label: Sleazetone

Chrissy Murderbot, a favorite of DJ Donna Summer and the Trouble & Bass Crew, comes at you with a reference-riddled electro-bass number. Beginning with a slowed sample of Armando's "100% of Disin' You," the track continues with some heavy, bass-loaded breakbeat that all the kids are repping.

Download: SA-RA Creative Partners "Just Like A Baby"

Label: Ubiquity

This is some straight-up Sly Stone shit! L.A.'s SA-RA put their own little spin on this sexy, slow jam of rambling bass and wah-wah electricity from the 1971 funk milestone, There's A Riot Goin' On. Needless to say, this vamped-up R&B number slides on like a well-worn polyester suit.

Download: Joakim "Love & Romance & A Special Person"

Label: !K7

It sounds like Joakim has been sticking to a heavy diet of nothing but Laurie Anderson and dirt disco as of late. This sizzler from the French producer's latest, Milky Ways, has got the shimmer of spinning disco balls and flashing strobesall over it, with some old-school computer voices and tropical guit ar loops thrown in as an added buffer.

Download: Crown City Rockers "Soul"

Label: Gold Dust

It's all about the bump and soul on this cut from The Day After Forever, the latest from Rashaan Ahmad and the Crown City crew. Looking back to the playground for some inspiration, the Bay Area hip-hoppers crank up the juice and wax a little nostalgic '70s style, hitting up everyone from Kool & the Gang to the Pips along the way.
