The Lowdown: This Week's XLR8R Top 10 with Delory Edwards, Roni Size, Ben UFO 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 »

Looking for Help Directly from the Pros? XLR8R Is Launching a New Series, 'Ask the Experts,' with Modeselektor

Whether we're conducting interviews, putting together features, or prepping some other piece of content we here at XLR8R try to keep in mind that many members of our audience come to the site not only for music, but also to learn. Over the past few years, we've attempted to build our Gear section into a useful resource for aspiring DJs and beatmakers, but we also realize that it's not quite enough. No matter how thorough XLR8R attempts to be, there are surely readers out there who are left disappointed when a certain question goes unanswered or a specific piece of information isn't revealed. In an effort to remedy this situation, we've decided to launch a new feature series, Ask the Experts, which will give our audience the chance to pepper a new artist with questions each and every month. And to kick off the new feature, we've enlisted the smarts of none other than veteran German duo Modeselektor. Read more »

Check Out a New Remix from Doc Daneeka

Over the past few years, UK-born, Paris-based producer Doc Daneeka has gradually reinvented himself. While the Ten Thousand Yen label head was once known for crafting bass-heavy, rhythmic club tools, these days he's turning out melodic, hook-driven house, as seen on his anthemic "Walk On In" single from last year. More recently, his Hi-Five feature for XLR8R and hammering "Treptow" single for Numbers showcased the Welsh beatmaker's newfound affinity for infectious piano lines, a love which is also evident in his new remix for Manchester-born producer TCTS.
