Download: Diamond Dagger "Red Leather Bop"

For his most recent outing, Dublin-born producer Damien Lynch has decided to set aside his usual alias, Sarsparilla, for a moment in order to turn in a full-length effort under his new Diamond Dagger moniker. Similar to Lynch's other projects, Diamond Dagger's Estate Crudele LP celebrates the tones of vintage synthesizers and classic drum machines, resulting in tracks that lean towards the more nostalgic ends of the dancefloor. Pulled from the record is "Red Leather Bop," a particularly housey number striped with space-born melodies and waves of buzzing synth chords. The tune can be downloaded for free below, while Diamond Dagger's full Estate Crudele LP can currently be grabbed as a name-your-price download over on Bandcamp.

Download: Frunk29 "Slowdilla (Vakula Remix)"

Label: Fuselab

Today, Russian label Fuselab drops the Slowdilla EP, a four-track effort from Moscow house producer Marat Shainskiy (a.k.a. Frunk29). Closing out the record is this remix from Ukraine's Vakula, who digs deeper into the low-swung, textured house of Shainskiy's original, layering restless acid lines and an unwieldy array of chopped hats and miniature FX around the soulful, swaying beat. Those curious to hear what else the budding Frunk29 has in store on his new Slowdilla EP can preview the record after the jump.  Read more »

Download: Blâme "Haunted"

First Listen
Label: [Re]sources

French producer Blâme (who also serves as half of the CDBL duo) will debut on the Parisian [Re]sources label next week with the three-track Paranoid EP, a record said to showcase the artist's "flair for techno breaks, acid basslines, and instrumental grime." Pulled from the record is "Haunted," a track whose heavy-handed percussion tones are laced with a dubwise roll, leaving them to chug between thick layers of clouded chord stabs and streaks of acid manipulations. Out on September 1, Blâme's complete Paranoid EP can be streamed after the jump.  Read more »
