Download: Jahdan Blakkamoore "Best I Ever Had (Freestyle)"

Jahdan Blakkamoore's career took a radical left turn when he first collaborated with MC 77Klash and Matt Shadetek for "Brooklyn Anthem." The parties have reunited for this track, which is the first jam off Blakkamoore's forthcoming Bazooka Shot mixtape, which he made alongside Shadetek's Dutty Artz crew. Meanwhile, his Buzzrock Warrior album—a fusion of dancehall, dubstep, grime, and cumbia—will drop September 15.

Download: Delorean "Deli"

Label: Fool House

Can a rock band be Balearic? If so, Spanish quartet Delorean certainly fits the bill. Their latest track is a sunny slice of dance pop—exactly the kind of thing we'd like to bump while kicking it on a beach in Catalunya. As cited earlier this year, the group's focus of late has been a brand-new EP, Ayrton Senna, which is finally available via Fluokids offshoot Fool House. Photo by Nacho Alegre.

Download: Thunderheist "Nothing 2 Step 2 (Idiotproof Remix)"

Label: Counter

One thing we can say with certainty about the somewhat mysterious outfit known as Idiotproof is that they like their beats sharp and their remixes strange. The self-described "three-headed freakshow baby" has reworked everyone from Malente & Dex to Armand Van Helden. Now, they reinvent Canadian duo Thunderheist's latest single, turning it into a chopped-up musical free-for-all.

Download: Buju Banton "Regular Ting"

Label: Gargamel

Joining the likes of TOK, Spragga Benz, and others, our man Buju Banton tries his hand at Truckback Records' Clutch riddim on this track, off his recently released Rasta Got Soul. He made the bulk of that album in 2004, when his visa was confiscated, thereby putting a stop to travel for a while. Time alone was, it seems, well spent, and roots revivalists should be all over this one.

Download: Exclusive: ApSci "Under Control (David Last vs MC Zulu Remix)"

Label: Quannum

Noise-hop duo ApSci, who just returned from Sydney, Australia, where they've been recording Best Crisis Ever, recently slipped their track "Under Control" into the hands of producer David Last. With badman MC Zulu in tow, the tune becomes a stomping, ragga-flavored number that will surely stir things up on the weekend dancefloor. Meanwhile, Best Crisis Ever will drop August 11.

Download: Lusine "Two Dots"

Label: Ghostly

We haven't seen a full-length from DJ, producer, and remixer Lusine since 2004's Serial Hodgepodge (he was busy scoring films these last five years), but the man born Jeff McIlwain is back, and here is the first single off A Certain Distance, his new album. Looks like he donned his ambient techno hat for the release, which is slated to hit stores later this fall.

Download: Minus 8 "Late Night"

Label: Compost

Crazy club music all day long would drive us insane, which is why producers like Minus 8 are sometimes a welcome breath of fresh (and slower-paced) air. The Zurich-based DJ, producer, and radio-show host just released Slow Motion, a straightforward downtempo affair that's rooted in funky jazz, hip-hop, and Latin flavor. Here's proof that the occasional chill-out session doesn't necessarily make you old and boring.
