Something else from SFV Acid's upcoming full-length for UNO, which drops on May 28 and reportedly written entirely at Starbucks. "PT Sex" is a short but compelling excursion, glistening with a tech-induced, acid-inflected sheen, at the same time it points to over-caffeinated unease.

Seriously cosmic interstitial visions on this new track from Egyptian Sports Network - a duo comprising Spencer Clark (Skaters, Monopoly Child Star Searchers) and Matt Mondanile (Ducktails, Real Estate), and on this track also featuring Mark McGuire. "Leo in Cyan" updates the nu age palette for the age of satellite transmission, and is part of the five-track Interstitial Luxor EP, out soon on New Images Ltd.

MP3: Golden Donna - All Alone (Blown Out Spring '13 Mix)
Madison, Wisconsin's Golden Donna has remixed one of his old tracks, which initially saw release for free on bandcamp last year. The track is based around a syrupy sample, which this mix loops in a laconic fashion and punctuates with some nice rapid-fire snare work. Stream below via soundcloud, or we've got a download of the mp3 above.

Auckland bedroom producer Lightening continues exploring the infinite youtube realms of forgotten club-classics with this edit of Sonic Food's "Ascend". Tempering its pitched-up late-hardcore maniacal strain, Eamonn Logan reimagines the track as a slicked-up slice of early-90s UK techno.

Great little vid from LA's Pod Blotz, for a track that's out on their new Dungeon Taxis cassette, Timeless. The track is straight outta the dream-zone, with an undercurrent of crunchy, pulsating noise interfacing with otherworldly drone remnants. Listen to another bit from the tape below.

It's been a minute since I've checked in with our fried friends at Melbourne-based Vinyl Only Tapes / Sleepout Records - but this latest vis-aural treat had me properly captivated. Typically pared back, and taking cues from the stark, artificial functionality of iPhone/Nintendo DS composition apps, Abstract Mutation injects bouncy house stabs on top of its tinny digital beat. Whirs of echoing interference create a further sense of obliqueness - enhanced by the hypnotic mundanity of the dual visual portals (nice how the hedge trimmer screeches bleed into the audio towards the end!).

Serious love for AyGeeTee's sprawling new album Fools. The London producer is a bit of a stalwart of the AM Discs nexus, and each new drop from him has been better than the last for a while now - for instance, check out the Actress Pets album from last year. This album sees him further refining his lush, collage-like electronica to achieve delirious sensory-overload.
Fools is out now digitally, with an LP version to follow later.

Very sleek afterparty vibes on this new track from Olympia, WA based producer Braxton/Palmer. A classically-flipped r&b vocal sample meets some late night Detroit inflections. Part two of the Creeper single, which is out May 14 on Ceremony.

Excited to premiere a track from this striking collaborative EP by NY-based Spirit Guide and NC-based Every. "Motivation" traverses a similarly rendered hyperreal terrain to like-minded artists like Fatima al Qadiri and Nguzunguzu: glistening, technologically-informed beat music that filters skittering hi-hats and a futuristic hip-hop sensibility through its crunched digital arsenal. Interesting to read about the truly collaborative approach the artists took for an earlier track up on The Creators Project - trading Iranian popstar samples and flute plug-ins back and forth as "digital sketches" that became the final product.
