Download: Palms "Boundary Waters (Josh Dibbs remix)"

Josh Dibb (a.k.a. Deakin) of the Animal Collective compound forks out a stunner of a remix on this track from New York two-piece Palms. With arms and legs dunked in vats of mescaline and syrupy molasses, this beast sure knows how to cut a rug in a freaky way once it gets moving.

Download: Underworld "Born Slippy (live)"

To celebrate their upcoming North American stretch with Crosstown Rebels head Damian Lazarus, legendary electronic duo Underworld zapped us his tweaky live take on "Born Slippy" in our direction. It goes without saying that we wish we could be in Las Vegas this Friday for the opening night of their tour.

Download: Co$$ "Pretty Ugly"

Label: Tres

Straight outta of the Leimert Park district of Los Angeles is some bumpin' west coast shit from Troy "Co$$" Johnson that'll have car trunks rattling up and down the block. Watch out for his Khakis and Taylors 12" that's hitting store shelves in the coming weeks.

Download: Phosho feat. Cerebral Vortex "Control Dub"

Phosho, the more electro-minded moniker of San Francisco's grimey Salva, has joined forces with SF-based MC Cerebral Vortex for the synth-laden "Control." On this dub version of the track, Phosho chops the vocal into fine slices and syncopates them perfectly with percussive synths and straight-forward beats tailor made for the dancefloor.

Download: Sene "Just Like Him"

Teaming up with Stockholm-based producer Eric L, Brooklyn's Sene busts through the hip-hop gates with this gritty tale of growing up in the New York borough. Hopefully this track will fend off any hungry wolves until his Blu-produced debut ADayLate&ADollarShort sees the light of day this fall.

Download: Dub Pistols "I'm In Love (Foamo Remix)"

London's old-school, big beat merchants Dub Pistols are back with a new single, dubbed, simply enough, "I'm In Love." As one might expect, plenty of remixes have been commissioned and included on the single's release. Here, the U.K's club-lovin' Foamo gives the reggae-influenced track a wobbly, buzzing bass treatment that compliments the repetitious vocal hook.

Download: Har Mar Superstar "Tall Boy"

Label: Dilettante Recordings

Could someone please make Har Mar Superstar famous? His tour opening for Weezer didn't do it, and neither did his cameo in the Starsky and Hutch re-make. The tracks he wrote for J. Lo or Kelly Osborne went nowhere, and we have a feeling that his new single, "Tall Boy," originally intended for Britney Spears before her management turned it down, won't be changing his fortunes either. The paint-by-numbers pop tune leans far more '03 than '09, and Har Mar has made the, um, interesting decision to keep the original lyrics, leaving him looking for a "tall boy" to "get inside" of him. Good luck with that one.
