Following our annual end of the year Top 100 Downloads roundup this past December, the XLR8R staff entered the new year feeling fully inspired by the sheer mass and nature of the remarkable musical submissions we received in 2015. After a short hiatus during the holidays and a brief stint down in Tulum, Mexico for our first ever XLR8R Festival, 2016 has received nothing but stellar download submissions and without skipping a single beat, the time has come to announce the Top Ten Downloads of January.
Taking the number one spot is UK native and pastor of his Church party/imprint, Seb Wildblood, who offered up the shivery and sobering cut "Crazy Eyes, Eric" from his forthcoming cassette series. Coming in as a close second is the Russian producer Koett, whose imaginary travels to the north inspired the club-ready burner "Slow Run," followed by enigmatic French multi-instrumentalist InClose for his composition "Bright Phantasy."
