New Release: xxyyxx – Overdone (Anneka Remix)

16 year old producer xxyyxx has brought us another gem this month, mixing an acapella version of Anneka’s Shut Her Down with his ambient production skills.

New Release: Burial & Four Tet – Nova

Released just minutes ago from Four Tet’s Soundcloud page, release number thirteen on his Text label sees him collaborating with old sparring partner Will Bevan (aka Burial). First impressions are that it could almost be a solo Burial track.

Dante Kinnunen, once the drummer for The Concretes, has applied his skills to the world of Electronic-RnB-Soul this year with his solo project under the alias Dante. His music tends to merge his own voice (akin to Nina Simone) with a score of rich productions.

New Artist: Rhye

We first heard Rhye on an excellent mix Robbin Hannibal put together for Gilles Peterson in October last year. Back then they were called Rye and there was no information available on them, except that they were signed to Innovative Leisure. This month they finally released Open, the track that had first caught our eye.
