Download: Caspa "Ohh R Ya?"

Label: Dub Police

You'll know London-based dubstep producer Caspa from his work as one half of Caspa & Rusko, as well as his solo releases for labels like Tempa, Argon, Pitch Black, and others. Unlike the brooding, pensive beats so frequently found in dubstep, Caspa makes high-energy tracks that could easily be the soundtrack to an upbeat house party, lacing them with electro and dancehall flavors. "Ohh R Ya?" is off the License to Thrill Volume 1 EP, out now on his Dub Police imprint.

Download: Jay Haze "90 Deep"

Jay Haze's forthcoming Love & Beyond album should both confuse and excite fans. The Berlin-based, American expat has prepped a two-CD version of the album, as well as a two-LP version, both with entirely different tracks. "90 Deep" comes from the CD version of the release. Its trippy, start-and-stop rhythms and disparate melodies should be a taste for what's in store when the full album drops in April.

Download: Chessie "High Line"

Stephen Gardner and Ben Bailes, along with their army of gutiars, drums, synths, organs, and horns, traverse every genre known to man on their fourth full-length under the Chessie moniker. Manifest comes six years after the highly praised Overnight (named of of the best albums of the year by New York Times), and the duo's sound has changed considerably since, to a rawer, subtler one that's less dance and more pensive–in the best possible way.

Download: Tommy Guerrero "40 Summers"

Label: Galaxia

Tommy Guerrero is something of an icon in the Bay Area. The producer is known for his soulful and atmospheric recordings, as well as his abilities as a multi-instrumentalist. The recently released Return of the Bastard finds him playing bass, guitar, percussion, and other instruments throughout the album's fifteen tracks.

Download: Triclops! "Freedom Tickler"

Hailed by many as one of the best live acts in the Bay Area, the four members of Triclops! make acid-punk packed with quivering basslines, thrashing guitar riffs, and distorted vocals. The band's forthcoming debut, Out of Africa, was recorded by the Melvins' engineer Kurt Schlegal, and has ensured their place among modern acts like Comets on Fire, The Locust, and others.

Download: Flying Lotus "Tea Leaf Dancers (Remix)"

Label: Unreleased

Does this guy really need an introduction at this point? Okay, for those not in the know, Flying Lotus is Steven Ellison, L.A.-based producer and one of the leaders of that city's IDM-via-hip-hop noise scene. His Reset EP firmly established his place in the Warp Records family, and now, Ellison has furnished XLR8R with a remix of "Tea Leaf Dancers." Here he slows the tempo down and turns up the soul elements, for a slinky, crooning rework.
