new mix from the masterful guru jan woo who by now has officially earned the love and respect, if not “favorite dj” status, of every local music head i know. a janny jam is one to hold close to your heart. it will never let you down.
thank you simian mobile disco for introducing this to me, and for jamie xx for the reminder. deep german groove punctuated by some well-timed, forceful smacks to the face. perfect. spend some time with jamie xx, too….
boylan was generous enough to give us this listen to what’s been going on inside ghettoteckz headquarters as of late, with first listens to tracks that are less than a month since conception. new rashad collab “gettin it” achieves levels of bassquake far beyond what most producers would consider acceptable. hope you’ve got subs.

Deep summer cuts coming thru in this edition of Embedded Grüv. Been obsessing over this Model 500 Starlight Remix EP lately. Spent a lot of time digging into these grooves late night, in bed, glow of the laptop screen illuminating the room. The liner notes are quite telling…Recorded at Love Park Studios (berlin)….Engineer: Moritz von Oswald….Published by Deep Space Music….Pretty much sums it up

Recently headed out west to California and took in the Woodsist fest at Big Sur. Good times nestled neath massive redwoods and awe-inspiring coastal cliffs, and while the show was good, the undoubted champion of the weekend was the DJ who played this cover of “Like a Rolling Stone” by Spirit. The guitar sound still has me in a stupor. Shout out @decantler for asking the DJ what the tune was.
house music is synonymous with pop music in south africa, and though dj sdunkero is one of the most prominent/successful south african house dj/producers, he is barely known outside of his country. been increasingly smitten with this sound lately and after much digging, these tracks are some of my finest discoveries. “choosing love” is a perfect electronic track, one that everyone i play it for seems to fall in love with:
here’s the low-budget video/mix featuring perhaps his most well-known track, “maputo song,” finding sdunkero inexplicably strumming an electric guitar (nowhere to be found in the song) unplugged on a mountain:
while bjork has certainly shown that she’s still one of the most visionary minds in the game with her new single and equally genius video by michel gondry, it’s this remix that’s had us most psyched since the teaser clip last month. dream team-level union, with a perfectly absurd breakdown in the final third.
while we cringe at the sound of a dubstep wobble, on this track by uk producer tunnidge there’s no wobble to be found, just a bone-rumbling kick drum in your face (i played this on 285 kent’s awesome rig at the pure x show, and the place was throbbing.) this one ultimately finds itself in its own zone.
araabmuzik is in new york and we’ll be catching him and a ton of others tonight at the ridiculous s!ck party, so in celebration, here’s an amazing track off his latest record that we never got around to posting:
