Trentemøller's latest offering, Harbour Boat Trips, is no album, but rather, a carefully mixed compilation that includes everyone from Two Lone Swordsmen to Grouper, along with a live edit of one of his own tracks. This version of "Vamp" includes a rolling, gurgling bassline, sharp snares, and the ever-present set of clicks and bleeps found in much of the Danish producer's work. Harbour Boat Trips is out now.

"I am a Car" was previously available for download at the Audion site for the low price of your email address, but for those who hold fast to their anonymity, the man also known as Matthew Dear is giving the track away at XLR8R too. It's typical Audion far, with minimal beats, whispering synths, and gentle helpings of static.
House, hip-hop, and funk converge on this track from Brooklyn DJ/producer Nickodemus, whose year will include both the release of a second solo album, Sun People, and the 10th anniversary of his famed Turntables on the Hudson party.

Sun People is out June 16 (digital) and August 18 (CD).
