It's with great pleasure that we curate and compile the tracks for XLR8R's download section each and every day. Among the countless tracks and releases that flood into the inbox, you'll find low-key grime EPs sitting next to house cuts and dark club bombs, all from a variety of artists as diverse as the tracks themselves. Once we reach the halfway point of each month, we tally the numbers and announce the 10 most popular tracks to hit the downloads section from last month.
This month, quite a few familiar faces landed in the top 10, with sound design experts and masters of the deep Dadub taking the top spot with their forward-thinking cut "Rain On The Earth." An emotive and melodic track from Atish's debut solo EP landed in second, with Soulphiction's remix of veteran duo Timo Maas & James Teej's "Mary Wanna," Stefana Fratila's poignant "Dancing," and Giacomelli's mind-bending synth piece "Kundalini Timeshares" rounding out the top five.
