Download: Housemeister "Who The Fuck Is AYCB"

Though Germany's Housemeister claims three decades of genres appear on the Roadmovie EP, this track is undeniably paying homage to those nights spent raving in sweaty, grime-ridden warehouses. The vocoders à la Karftwork, electro-style 303s, and hell-bent pace of the beat ensures this is a tune for the dancing youth of the world.

Download: Hakan Lidbo "Call for Islam"

In early 2007 the nation known for Ikea, Volvos, and porn arrived in Shitkatapult's office in the form of several rock n' techno CDRs, soon to be compiled into a Swedish-centric release series. Hakan Lidbo kicks things off with this track full of distorted vocals sung in Arabic, dark disco bass lines, minimal melodies, and a no-nonsense techno beat.

Download: Bunny Rabbit "Saddle Up"

Bunny Rabbit gets her lyrical inspiration from a childhood spent in North Brooklyn rhyming on street corners, and when teamed up with producer and life partner Black Cracker, her tracks become a collage of nightmarish prophecies, hallucinogenic dark beats, seductive sweet melodies, and raunchy raps that make Lovers and Crypts an album worth checking.

Label: Alphacut

Starting with acid beats in 1993, Iaka's sound soon evolved into leftfield breakbeat tracks, and it's such versatility and willingness to grow that keeps him one of the Hamburg's most popular DJs and producers.

Download: Machinedrum "911"

Label: NormRex

Travis Stewart (a.k.a. Machinedrum) makes fractured, mutated hip-hop that hasn’t quite escaped the influence of IDM, but hold off on those Prefuse 73 comparisons. This multi-instrumentalist rewards the careful listener subtle tempo shifts and unexpected sounds that make him an artist in his own right.
