Darker Than Wax compilation - 10K Facebook Likes Singapore-based Darker Than Wax label hits a milestone with 10K Facebook Likes and releases a hefty 21-track compilation that is diverse yet chock-a-block with rithmns and talent.
Evolv - Laminated Maps (Simon Hinter Rmx) Midnight Shift artist Simon Hinter shares an excruciating delicate and melodic remix excursion of Evolv's 'Laminated Maps', a knack in which he has found a niche in.
DJ Total M - Get It Right (Total M Au Naturel Edit) Word on the street is that DJ Total M is none other than Miles Maeda from Chicago. Or maybe it's not that much a secret. Anyway, his edits and jams have proven themselves on the dancefloor, so cop yours today.
The Trp & Michael Tousana - Catching Fire (Ripa's Cholo Edit) We're not too sure how long this download will be enabled, so get it while it's hot. Ripperton makes an atmospheric edit of The Trp & Michael Tousana perfect for those sets in the sun.
Tessela - Hackney Parrot (the Cronton Pidgeons Rmx) Not much is known of The Cronton Pidgeons. But his/her/their remix of Tessela's 'Hackney Parrot' is kinda fly.
Ultrademon - Where Do I Go
Midnight Shift artist Ultrademon's soon-to-be-released 'Where Do I Go' on Hyperboloid is "a laid-back outing which pairs deep 808 kicks with loose hats, miniature snaps, and an evolving series of sugary synth melodies".
