Adding to its ever-expanding collection of in-your-face beat music, Hamburg-based imprint Saturate! has begun the new year with a free compilation of artists both longstanding and new to the label. Among the 27 handpicked tracks on Saturated! Vol. 3 is one standout from Moscovian stalwart Pixelord (a.k.a. Alexey Devyanin), whose Supaplex EP was deemed "nimble and airtight" by XLR8R last September. "Solving" finds Devyanin continuing his exploration of wonky, juke-inspired beatwork, complete with quick vocal chops and pummeling basslines. The kind of frantic and tightly knit percussive elements of "Solving" can be heard in many tracks of the compilation, all of which you can stream after the jump and grab as a "name-your-price" download here.
