The Lowdown: This Week's XLR8R Top 10 with Flying Lotus, Roman Flügel, Om Unit, and More

Throughout the week, a whole lot of material gets posted here on XLR8R. And while we know—and love—that some hardcore readers will eagerly pour over every single news story, interview, podcast, video, and MP3 download that appears on the site, we also realize that for most people, it's impossible to see everything, which means that some quality XLR8R content is likely to get missed in the hustle and bustle of everyone's daily lives. In the interest of making it easier for everyone to catch up, every Friday we present The Lowdown, a weekly wrap-up of the top 10 tidbits from our site. Read more »

'Labels We Love' Is Coming Next Week; Vote Now and Tell Us What Labels You Love

While artists and music remain the primary focus here at XLR8R, we also know that labels continue to play a key role in the grand scheme of things.

Given that, we're always excited to shine an especially bright light on some of our favorite imprints each year via the annual Labels We Love series. The name is pretty self-explanatory, but be on the lookout for several in-depth label features, along with shorter pieces highlighting a number of noteworthy outposts.

Vladislav Delay Has Signed Up for the Next Round of 'Ask the Experts'; Send Him Your Questions Now

By now, we're guessing that most XLR8R regulars have caught on to the idea of Ask the Experts, a monthly feature in which a veteran artist agrees to answer questions directly from our audience. Last month's edition with Daedelus proved to be rather illuminating, and we're hoping for similar results this time around, as we've enlisted Vladislav Delay (a.k.a. Sasu Ripatti) to share a bit of his knowledge. Read more »
