The Lowdown: This Week's XLR8R Top 10 with Maya Jane Coles, Joy Orbison, Mister Saturday Night, and More

Throughout the week, a whole lot of material gets posted here on XLR8R. And while we know—and love—that some hardcore readers will eagerly pour over every single news story, interview, podcast, video, and MP3 download that appears on the site, we also realize that for most people, it's impossible to see everything, which means that some quality XLR8R content is likely to get missed in the hustle and bustle of everyone's daily lives. In the interest of making it easier for everyone to catch up, every Friday we present The Lowdown, a weekly wrap-up of the top 10 tidbits from our site. Read more »

Download: Mijo "Valet Parking"

First Listen
Label: Sanfuentes

Hailing from Mexico City, prolific producer Alec Sander (who has in the past operated under the names La Royale, Yesco, and Moon Runner) will deliver the next record for Sanfuentes—the eponymous label of LA-based Cómeme affiliate Vicente Sanfuentes—under his Mijo alias. Due out on December 8, Mijo's Economic EP is said to embody the Mexican club music ethos of "less is more," offering four tracks of stripped-back techno with "no gimmicks, no flash." A fine example of such is EP cut "Valet Parking," which sees Mijo crafting an efficient but energetic production that laces its lively drum-machine stomp with playful bits of upfront synth tones and, of course, plenty of percussive odds and ends. Ahead of its release next month, Mijo's forthcoming Economic EP can be previewed after the jump.  Read more »

Download: Machines in Heaven "Hindu Milk (Debukas Remix)"

First Listen

Earlier this month, Glasgow trio Machines in Heaven dropped the Hindu Milk EP (artwork above), a five-track effort which explored a number of (mostly instrumental) electronic and pop hybrids. To coincide with the release, Machines in Heaven has tapped fellow Glaswegian talent Debukas to remix the EP's title track, the results of which are featured here. A wistful, M83-esque affair, Debukas reshapes "Hindu Milk" into a more club-appropriate outing, placing a thick bassline beneath the array of warm chords and sprightly melodic content which Debukas repurposes from Machines in Heaven's original track. Debukas' rework can be grabbed below, while a full stream of Machines in Heaven's Hindu Milk EP can be found after the jump.  Read more »
