To give you a taste of what’s to come, we’ve assembled a free compilation of preview tracks from upcoming releases featuring the likes of Shigeto, Mux Mool, Matthew Dear, School of Seven Bells, Choir of Young Believers, and more. Happy winter listening." - Ghostly Insternational
XXX is a balls-deep trip into Danny Brown's twisted universe, where overdosing on illegal stimulants, stealing scrap metal, and fucking like a porn star collide with all types of Detroit hood shit. Riding frantic, electro-inspired beats, Brown's distinctive yelp always sounds like he's on the edge of a nervous breakdown. Disturbing, hilarious, and compelling all at once, rarely has insanity sounded this dope.
It’s the festive season and we thought it was about time we gave you people the latest release from Made To Play: Nat Self's 'Mr Monkey’. Nat Self, the man that forms exactly one half of hip-house, party starting upstarts, Zombie Disco Squad is branching out on his own – releasing his debut solo project on Made To Play. This track is almost Brazilian in influence, a party on Copacabana and a Carnival banger all rolled into one. With remixes coming from Luca Lozano and Rafael Kakudo this EP covers all bases and is sure to be a success! The EP is available for download now on Beatport.
Brainchild of both himself Brodinski and Guillaume of The Shoes, Gucci Vump are back with a new 30 min mixtape of original productions called “Nvthin Bvt A Gvxxi Thang”.

Download the 30 min mix here or as separate tracks via Megaupload.
Ghostly International put together a few of their most wintry, festive, and brisk songs for you for this holiday season. Some are straightforward, some not so much, but each one will remind you of winter and the feelings that surround it. To a great 2010 and an even better 2011. Enjoy.

“Been a very long time since I’ve uploaded any DJ sets, but I like the weird vibe of last night’s opening set. It’s always a pleasure to open for a headliner whose draw falls on the darker and stranger side of club music — it’s a bit of a get-out-of-jail-free card to NOT give people what they want, but play what YOU feel like in that moment." - Mike Mind
This is a mix that Mathias did for the guys from great Italian blog DiscoSafari. The boys make parties in Milan, have one of the best record shops in Italy and produce hot & healing house music as The Barkings Dogs. The mix starts with the not yet released Munk remix of the new Jolly Jams E.P. and after some more straight house tracks it gets more and more into mid 70ies weird discofunk with a quite Arabian and Spanish flavor. In between you also find new tracks by Tony Senghore / Shir Khan, Voltage and others. Check out Munk’s edit of Turkish funk from Baris Manco or the super rare Italian funk tracks in the end.
