Earlier this month, Paris DJ and party collective Camion Bazar launched its label arm with a new EP by project founder, Romain Play.

The three-track EP, titled Silent Bloc, is as eclectic as Play's notoriously wide-reaching DJ sets—he's known in his homeland as "Prince of the Decks." Across the three tracks, you'll be treated to smooth-as-silk downtempo, swinging deep house, and a highly inventive minimal cut crafted with samples of someone opening, entering, and starting the Camion Bazar mobile DJ bus—and yes, it's a weirdly brilliant as it sounds.

In support of the label launch, Play has offered up the opening cut, "Point Mort," as today's XLR8R download. Unfolding across an 11-minute runtime, it's a funky, head-nodding beat track perfect for lounging around and drifting away.
