Michael Lueckner (a.k.a. Guitar) has returned with another amplified whirlwind of psych-guitar madness. Taken from his newest release, Dealin with Signal and Noise, "Here" is an epic, post-shogaze delay fest. Processed noise rarely sounds this good.

Unlike the more "chill" artistry of Om Records, Bassnectar thrives on the power of bass fire. Fusing deep dubstep rhythms and dirty hip-hop drum kits, "Kick It Complex" is destined to win over more than just bearded festival-goers.

Dolby-Anol is the chip right off of the electro-psych block. This Glasgow-based duo composes the most righteous analog-house, sample-shuffling dance tracks this side of Simian Mobile Disco. Taken from the boys' Tigerbass debut Dolby & Gabbana, "Heather, I'm Dry" is imbued with layers of colorful synth-dirge and bleeping chaos from the cosmos.
Portland-based hip-hop duo Lifesavas is unquestionably one of the most soulful outfits to grace the indie scene without coming close to cheesy soul status." Gutterfly is another tight offering beaming with horn-sample-heavy, production and lyrics that prove how fly both VURSATYL and JUMBO's collaborative work can actually be. "Gutterfly," the single, features Camp Lo (the East Coast soul reps), whipping up more versatile hip-hop that Shaft himself could vibe with. Photo by Amanda Lopez.
Michael Vater a.k.a. Phonique is one of those producers that straddles the tech-house-pop-everything else fence. Good Idea is filled with deep kick drums, the occasional vocal-house track a la Matthew Dear, and features a slew of collaborators from Gui Boratto to Steve Bug. "Always Wanted" is only a fraction of this Berlin-based producer's capability.
A Touch of Class is the remix duo the world's been waiting for. Known for taking electro-chances since the late '90s, Oliver Stumm and Domie Clausen have made clubs cry with infectious reinterpretations of everyone from Services to The Gossip to Le Tigre. The duo's latest offering, A Touch of Class Still Sucks!, is another collection of electro-slappers that has clubs on their heels.
