Example - Stay Awake x Playing In The Shadows (Tracklist)

Here is the monstrous Nero produced second single from Example's upcoming album, which was given its World Premier on Annie Mac's show earlier this evening - I was lucky enough to hear an early version of this towards the back end of last year, and haven't got the hook out of my head since. The single will be available on 28th August, and will feature on his third studio album, which is set to be released on 5th September. Whilst on the show he unveiled the tracklist for Playing In The Shadows (see below) and explained that it is now available to pre-order on the HMV website HERE. Oh yeah, you can gets tickets for his Nov/Dec tour HERE too. Even more exciting times ahead.

Yuksek - The Edge

My favourite track off French producer Yuksek's sophmore album, Living On The Edge Of Time. The album is the perfect listen for a lovely Summer day like today - funky electronic beats laced with cool vocals. His style reminds me a lot of Chromeo.

Wretch 32 - Don't Go (Feat. Josh Kumra) (DJ Fresh & Sezer Uysal Remixes)

Here are two smashing remixes of Wretch 32's third single from his upcoming debut album, Black & White. First up is a pretty abstract Electronic rework courtesy of DJ Fresh, who is the man that has brought us one of the songs of the Summer in Louder. The second is a brilliant Tech/Progressive remix from Sezer Uysal, who has been a popular figure on the underground scene for quite a few years now. Future Data don't let their artists put out poor remix packages, and this one is no exception, even though the Manhattan Clique remix is pretty poor. Enjoy, and make sure you cop Don't Go, which is out August 14th.

SBTRKT - Trials Of The Past

My favourite track from SBTRKT's self-titled debut album, which is set to be released on June 28th. This guy is well-known for producing some next level shit, and this whole album is no exception. One of the more enjoyable listens of the year - forward thinking electronic production, with lots of soul.

Jamie XX - Far Nearer

Here is Jamie XX's debut single on Numbers - he has stayed true to his roots, being as unique as ever, making the slightly bizarre vocals work perfectly with the steel drum infused beat. You can listen to the track below and then get your copy from Numbers. This young man is what is commonly known as a genius.

Samiyam - Escape x My Buddy

Sam Baker, better known as Samiyam, is an instrumental Hip-Hop producer from Michigan who was first discovered in 2008 by the incredble Flying Lotus. His latest release, Sam Baker's Album, is 40 minutes of pure listening pleasure, a series of woozy, off-centre Hip-Hop instrumentals drawing heavily on Baker’s love of electronic funk. Always unique, and never ordinary, this is a must have if you are a Samiyam fan - his best work to date.

Chiddy Bang - Nobody Has It Down x You Think My Old Shit Hard? (You Ain't Seen Nothin')

Here are my two favourite tracks from Chiddy Bang's new mixtape, Peanut Butter & Swelly. I don't think Chiddy is the best rapper in the world, and I don't think Xaphoon is the best producer in the world, but together they definitely work. Xaphoon's production style compliments Chiddy's flow brilliantly, which allows them to create fun music that is easy to listen to. Download the mixtape HERE.

The Beekeepers - Long Way Down (Feat. Mystro)

Following on from the earlier Beekeepers post, here is another Mystro featured track from their recently released debut album, Apiculture. Really nice to hear Mys on a different kind of beat - smashing stuff.

Moby - Lie Down In Darkness

Moby very rarely puts together a solid album from start to finish, however there is always one or two gems on there. This is the gem from his 10th studio album, Destroyed, which will be available next week. Listen to this track in a dark room and it will take you to another place.

Young Montana? - Midnight Snacks

Introduced to the world last year on Radio 1 by Mary Anne Hobbs, Young Montana? is a 20 year old Downtempo/Electronic producer from Coventry. The other day he released his highly anticipated debut album, which is full of exceptional skill and unique sampling styles that have created a genre of music we have never heard before. Limerence is what we have all been waiting for.
