Domer is a Brooklyn MC and producer who doesn't seem too concerned with looking back to the storied history of New York hip-hop, or even that interested in the city's new musical directions. Rather, Domer wants you to shake your ass and have a good time without thinking too much about what you're doing. With a few years of experience throwing parties in NYC, as well as some success licensing beats to TV commercials, this guy knows what he's doing. This track comes from his second album, Vaguest Vacation, a release full of catchy hooks and poppy beats for a spring break at the Domer resort.

The Glitch Mob got ahold of this track from fellow L.A.-based noisemaker Nalepa and turned the ambient composition, which is taken from his forthcoming Flatlands release, into an electro-infused glitch fest that would wake even the heaviest sleeper up on a Monday morning. Forget coffee, this is what you need when you roll out of bed at the beginning of the week. This week also marks your final chance to enter some beats for Glitch Mob's contest. The winner will open for the crew at their S.F. show on May 9.

The release also features a fuzzy rendition of a Mudhoney song, a new Spectrum number, and contributions from the Tate County Singers.

Paul Dickow has long been a key player in Portland's electronic and experimental music communities, having played the drums for punk group Emergency and ambient outfit Nudge, released albums on labels like Kranky, and remixed a wide array of genres under his Strategy moniker. Music for Lamping, out now via Audio Dregs, collects Dickow's downtempo and ambient compositions from the last six years. In his own words, the disc "is a totally solid counterpoint to the pop/dance stuff [he has] become known for."
Medard Fischer was initially motivated by architecture to begin the Arc Lab project and wrote songs as "musings on the interplay between structurally defined space and musical expression," by his own admission. On Fischer's third full-length, The Goodbye Radio, the aim might be less esoteric but the songs are more focused. The tracks put layers of warm synths and drifting beats under an echoing fog of Fischer's melancholy vocals. Walking the line between IDM and indie-pop like Figurine, Arc Lab splits Fischer's personality between aural architect and laptop troubadour. Wyatt Williams
