Back in 2008, Benji B had a guestmix by Ge-ology which contained this never released remix of Jill Scott‘s classic Slowly Surely.
The track was supposed to be part of a official Jill Scott remix album, but ultimately the project was scrapped. Fortunately BamaLoveSoul got a copy of the full track and made it available for stream.
Those interested in getting your hands on that old Benji B show, you can head over to Potholes In My Blog for a copy.
December 30, 2011 This track is part of the free Still Jill EP, which includes further remixes by Madlib, Zo! and MJ Cole
I remember having seen Mount Kimbie‘s video for Carbonated when it first appeared several months ago. Turns out I never bothered to post it. My bad, it’s a really nice video so I’m going to share it with everybody else who hasn’t seen it.
Like the videos for Before I Move Off and Would Know, this one was directed by Tyrone Lebon.
During last year’s listmania, it was Teebs‘ debut album Ardour that made it into our top album selection. A year later, the young Californian producer shares an alternate version of Autumn Antique which you can hear below.
You can hear more of Teebs’ music on SoundCloud page and he also just released his new album Collections 01.
San Francisco based producer EPROM talks to Lowpass TV about his influences from video games, Dabrye and parties on the West Coast. Just the kind of stuff we like ourselves, so I hope you enjoy this!
Good mixtapes have been scarce and while I’m not aware of too many, here are a few I’d like to share with you.
To celebrate the launch of the Hinge Finger label, Joy Orbison did a little mix that you can stream here or download there.
You might have heard about DJ Spinna’s The Best of MdCL mix by now, but there are some more Mark de Clive-Lowe related items. For once the Los Angeles based producer was invited to play at Low End Theory, and then there’s a new mixtape to promote his own night called Church.
Ahead of the TIEF new year’s party, Greymatter has done a mix for them. And you better be quick on that one, as they usually vanish after a few weeks.
If you’re looking for something more quiet, check out this one put together by Jon Hopkins.
For those remembering Sven Swift’s jazz mix from a while back, check out his latest for Find Magazine.
And as a little bonus, here’s a free download of AD Bourke‘s beat tape released back in 2008 on Domu’s TrebleO label.
December 20, 2011 Let me throw in two more mixes: Beat Dimension’s Danny Corn X ASG and another by Julien Dyne!
2011 has been another exceptional year for electronic music and I guess I’d put Machinedrum and SBTRKT on my best-of list if I was doing any. But don’t worry list loving people, I’m sure you’ll find them on many others.
Instead, I’m sharing this unreleased edit that involves both artists: SBTRKT remixing a track from Machinedrum’s Room(s) album. Doesn’t say whether there’ll be a release, maybe not. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the stream!
It’s been a while since I did a small run of t-shirts, but I finally had the chance to make some more. Designed by my good friend Rubens LP, they were meant as a thank you to the contributors to our podcast series. Well, there are a few left and you can buy one if you want to support this little blog.
All shirts were printed with love and care, using water-based colors and organic cotton shirts. Naturally, I tested a couple of brands to make sure the shirts are durable and the colors don’t wear off.
There aren’t too many available, so you better be quick to get one. Depending on the demand I might make some more in the future.
I guess this is the kind of stuff I easily fall for: ease came up with this video for Fulgeance. It’s the beautiful cover artwork of To All Of You playfully moving around as the beats are hitting.
If you haven’t the rest of the album yet, you can stream it in full on SoundCloud. It is available on German label Melting Pot since November 11, 2011.

Unless I’m mistaken, there wasn’t any mentioning of Lorn lately.. the last thing I remember was that viciously good collaboration with Om Unit. Now he’s back with another collaboration, this time with fellow American Dolor and clearly it’s the U.S. kind of beats you get to hear on Drugs.

Despite being over two years already, there’s nothing coming close to Dâm-Funk‘s pre-album release Let’s Take Off (Far Away) – if you ask me. It had the strongest album tracks in one place and sold for a more reasonable price than the Toeachizown box set.
When I saw this 2011 rework popping up on my SoundCloud dashboard I had to give it a try. It’s quite a raw version of the track, but I’m still falling for its impeccable groove. It’s a free download and it even comes as an uncompressed WAV file.
As previously announced by Mike Winkelmann aka Beeple, the 3D and video artist has put together a collection of videos for Brainfeeder. The eight VJ loops are all available under a Creative Commons license and come with the Cinema 4D project files.
For those not familiar with Beeple’s work, he’s the guy responsible for the Kill Your Co-Workers video and he also contributed to the Flying Lotus directed video for Erykah Badu. More clips and an interview with Mike can be found here!
The week is still young and there’s no shortage of quality mixtapes and London’s Om Unit is one of the most consistent producers right now when it comes to quality. So I’m very excited about the last XLR8R podcast of the year, I’m sure it won’t disappoint.

Second Ossie post for the day and I’m in the perfect mood for a 4×4 banger like this one. I have to admit though: I’d probably find this Pharoah Sanders edit a bit corny on any other day, but please decide for yourself.
Anyway, there’s a download available if you like it. If you’re in London on Friday you should catch his set at Fabric, otherwise get the mixtape he made for them.
