Avalon Emerson has been on a bit of a tear since relocating from San Francisco to Berlin in 2014, having issued a pair of EPs for the Spring Theory label in recent months, and maintaing a rather busy DJ schedule throughout. Now, the ascendant producer/DJ has returned with a new collection of Cybernetic Edits—DJ-minded reworks of classic tracks that can now be downloaded for free.
Emerson's Cybernetic series planted its roots last summer when the producer let loose a collection of remixes and a handful of custom edits. Now, the Berlin transplant has decided to turn Cybernetic Edits into a more consistent and ongoing series, which will include reworkings from Emerson herself as well as a handful of her contemporaries. Today, a new volume arrives, finding Emerson taking on Technotronic's "Pump Up the Jam" and Friction & Spice's "Groove Me," among others. The collection can be downloaded in AIFF and MP3 form here, where one can also sign up for the Cybernetic Edit subscription service.
