Tommorrow's sounds yesterday - the late Delia Derbyshire will never be forgotten.
electro synth funk of the highest order, canadas Lowfish can do no wrong...
A computor love song, great use of modem noises, and a touch of new romanticism
Solo release from Cee-lo, Dungeon Family mainstay. More subdued than his signature data stream flo D.F contributions. Expect more.

Bass heavy Bootleg explosion...
punk DSP from tigerbeat6.
Warm electronics, broadcast direct from the national grid..
Glockenspiels, sped up sub- hardcore vocals, OH BOY!
We like the Bhangra, the Bhangra that goes Boooooom.
Tense, strafing tech-haus, tightens like a ratchett. Devastating.
beautifully over processed voice recordings.. .. from tigerbeat6 again..
sleazy music from holland, the best chorus around..
A large file of Ragga/ RnB mashups, well worth the download time, Elephantman meets Outcast, Alcozade over Tweet, etc... compiled from the Coppershot album - Party Cloud ...
Eagerly awaited B-side of the new Luomo EP. Vladislav Delay's back to revive the genre he invented. Worth the wait? Damn straight....
smaller files for those with smaller pipes, this tune makes me wanna jump around like a teenager..
Shameless acoustic strum, hazy and fey with a sly familiarity.
Melted eurobeat from ForceTracks. Uber-blissed vocals and oldest boogie in the book squeezed out together like stripes in toothpaste. Refreshing, but you can't live off it.
Garage-tronica from our own nervous testpilot, come on!
Mark.E.Smith-ah, on form, bullying along to a stone groove and hand claps. One for all you non-believe-ahz.
Vo-coustic joy. A suspect strum finds a scuttling beat and falls over, blissed.
He's bl0win' up, ya know wha mean mate! Enjoy it while it lasts.
Micro mayhem, this cartoon 'ardcore wants to play.
Stuttering and hissing melodies , Perfect for a summer sunday in an deserted city ...
Stereolab pass the avalanches through there space age bachelor pad filter...
Warm, uncomplicated, bass tred from Kompakt, suffused with vapourous vocal tints (painfully familar) and acid swells.
excuse the bitrate of this one, at least itll download fast!, Baby Cham toasts over the massive Taliban riddim, ragga with an eastern flavour.
Deeep swaggering house, filtering the frugal loops and lyrics. Slow joy...
Seismic baritone Lexxus returns to battle-it-out with a slinky bass chomp in this hip-pop dancehall hybrid.
Kompakt's Closer Musik unfolds a neat world of twinkle and grind. Exquisite, stirring.... a gem.
well, it's a Bittersweet symphony... cept it's not really a symphony
dj shadow-esque antique breakbeat tune, from the new rjd2 album, I just cant help skippin to the horn break half way in..
insane anti-muzak from a Guy who usually makes corperate jingles for nokia etc..
Beck revisits the country, cruising home through Joshua Tree listening to Nashville Skyline in a '10,000 Hertz' hire car, his ozone voice fits this strain of sci-fi folk.
a frenetic moment from Dj/ ruptures superb mix CD, Minesweeper Suite..
Simple acoustic pop music..
Did it sound this good before dre sampled it? A vocal that jumps right out of the speaker..
Frantic pop mess from Max and his sister..
Flyin' her old skool cred, Missy lazes over a digi-jungle boogie: a percolating Blondie sample and raw c64 whoop, scratchin' in the changes and backspinning the chorus, going out with the oldest breakdown in the book.
The uber-talented, mega-prolific Jim O'Rourke downs pro-tools for a tumbling folk jaunt. We can forgive any self-indulgence (it's almost a paean to inanimate objects) when the 'cardigan titan' takes this dangling ballad into a handclap reverie, then drops it into a whirring abyss. Genius.
Awkward, effervescent 4/4, that reminds me of Morgan Geist's bounce and sparkle, with searing organ stabs, a flirty melody and a knock-out groove. In short, Kohnche lays out a rugged break-Haus beat then tries to land a cathedral on it.
Coy bubblegum enigma from the 80s. Generally, my pop fixes have the depth of a puddle, but this asks for more. The opening bars spell it out: a mournful horn off-set with a bashful synth that explodes into a spangle assault, and throughout the crisp surface belies the dark tug of regret. Mad props to Gareth, 'THE seleckta'
Presaging Disco:very and vocoder-house by 8 years? Jonny L is best known for pretty searing techstep but
made this rave-house (4/4!) record back in 93 and I think it is rather lovely. It is uber-saccharine,
almost too much with the fluffy methalenedioxy shit.
This day-glo breakfest is electro's equivalent of 'Lucky Charms', a short-lived sugar blast. Stealing Hooky's burbling bass and 'those' chords (New OrderTM), it's worth a download for the insolence alone.
Radio friendly R&B with an sly electronica backbeat, a bit cute maybe, but i'm a sucker for glockenspiels...
Controlled detonation from this scorching NYC quintet. A tight unit, angry and stumbling, they clamber tenaciously over the packed percussion, never losing touch with the bass drive. Sharp focussed funk...
Semi-recumbant bliss-haus that sneaks up on you like the dawn. Sleepy, with an almost.... post-coital ache, it finds a bouyancy through it's jangly reverb, hazy acid jabs and absolute adherence to the thump. A dusty sunbeam of a track.
Barrelling tech house from fellow Canadians: Tiga and Mateo Murphy. Slowly boiling, it hits full steam 3 minutes in as they precision filter moroder-esque effects and whiplash kicks, unleashing a sly backstep funk. An unremitting dancefloor killer.
Exquisite remix, makes everyone happy ..
Perfect electro pop moment from back in 1984…Fog Machines and Laser Rays!
knifehandchop makes bounty killer sound good again after that embarrasing no doubt single..
Tasty retread from Timba, recycling 'All Y'all' with the 'Oops, oh my' bounce. But, it still rocks the block.
It's somewhere else... and I like being there. You don't have to join us, we're having a great time together, just don't tell my girlfriend.
