Whether it's bagging one’s own groceries in the checkout line or exercising on a daily basis, Daly City Records artist Th' Mole (not to be confused with Montrealer/Berliner The Mole) has several tips—which he shares here—on how to be cool that don’t include ridiculous clothing. How 2 B Cool is the next installment in the Chrome Kids Fre-Release series, which comes packaged with a few remixes and an instrumental version of the track. Here's a reinterpretation from Germany's Robot Koch. How 2 Be Cool is out May 4.

Part driving techno, part ambient synth composition, and a little bit chiptune is this new track by Bronnt Industries Kapital, who will release a third full-length, Hard for Justice, later this month. The Bristol, England-based producer joins the Get Physical family for this release, and also uses his multi-instrumentalist abilities to craft a sound that would fit well inside something like an action-packed suspense film... or a dancefloor in the early hours of the morning.

On his latest full-length, Mother, Japanese experimental artist Susumu Yokota channels the annals of classic ambiance with the playfully abstract “Tree Surgeon,” a veritable mélange of merry-go-round melodies and haunting harmonies that bring him one step closer to Eno-dom.
Las Vegas-based electronic-garage duo Afghan Raiders claims that they are not DJs, and yet the boys have gone and done a number on this track from The Faint’s last album, Fascination. The buzzy, electrified version focuses on distant “dreams” and electro beats.
Detroit rapper Finale, by all accounts, is truly taking a trip back to 1985 in preparing for his new album, A Pipe Dream & a Promise. First, he turned himself into a Mario brother, and now there's this 8-bit remix of his track "One Man Show," which truly sounds a little like the theme song to Tetris.
A little while back, XLR8R announced the return of Moderat (comprised of techno talents Modeselektor and Apparat), back from a seven-year hiatus and ready to unveil a self-titled full-length album. The synth-heavy, melody-laden cut "A New Error" is the first track off that release.
Moderat is out April 21.
Husband/wife duo Rainbow Arabia first unveiled its experimental dance-meets-the Middle East number, "Omar K," last summer, as part of The Basta EP. Here, San Francisco-based producer Ghosts on Tape (a.k.a. Ryan Merry) gives the number a grimy interpretation that should get the electro-crunk crowd going on the dancefloor.
