Download: Curses "Hungry For Love"

Label: Institubes

We all know Luca Venezia as bass heavyweight Drop the Lime, but with his Curses moniker, he explores entirely different territory–the early '90s. On "Hungry for Love," Venezia unfolds a strange mutation of house music that seems to defy rhythm itself, yet is entirely irresistible when it comes to dancing. Add a few shades of electro, dubstep, and grime, and you have... well, we're not really sure what it is, but it's catchy as hell and we love it.

Download: Samiyam "Moon Shoes"

Label: Unreleased

Sam Baker, known to fans as Samiyam, has made leaps and bounds as an artist, considering the fact that he doesn't even have an album out yet. He performs with Flying Lotus, also his mentor, under the FLYamSAM name, has gained the attention of heavyweight DJs like Benji B and Andrew Meza, and none other than Daedelus has given this youngster his seal of approval. "Moon Shoes" is a bangin' unreleased track Baker recently made that is hopefully a hint of the instrumental EP rumored to drop in the near future.

Download: Del The Funky Homosapien "Bubble Pop"

Though the album date has been pushed back from its original release date, none of the anticipation for Del The Funky Homosapien's The 11th Hour has dwindled. Indie hip-hop fans from L.A. to Roanoke are eager to hear the next batch of lyrical twists and turns from the Hieroglyphics member, and if this track is any indication, the new album will be worth the lengthy wait for it.
