Creaking and clanging like a weathered ship drifting through a tar pit somewhere in the Far East, this track from the Austrian duo's latest effort, Transition, fits together bits and pieces of finger-picked guitar, vibraphone, and an abundance of dripping electronic noises before slowly sinking to its final resting place.

Matias Aguayo just keeps getting weirder. Here, he vocalizes insanely over deep, demanding kicks, a one-note bass pulse, and some extremely dry snares. In other words, the Chilean native pretends to be a very tweaked 303 over rhythms that could have come from his Closer Musik collaboration.

A guru in in the Balearic Disco department, Denmark's Peter Visti gets his hands dirty with this single from the Pollyn tribe by sprucing it up with a fine mist of new wave veneer and pop sheen.

The bouncy jam, immaculately produced by L.A.'s beat veteran Exile, comes just in time to get the remainder of your summertime cookouts started with its warm church organ samples and crisp hand claps.
