Big thank you to Druid Cloak for providing his picks with commentary!


Druid Cloak’s Picks:

Imami is a mastermind of production, “Madhouse” displays true originality and extreme attention to detail.

Kingdom has always been one of my favorites and this one brings tight percussive elements mixed with lush, crystalized synths that grab my attention.

This track hits… hard, and its simplicity is very powerful. All killer, No Filler.

(3rd track in at 2:00) Incredible earthy textures and massive percussion make this one an essential for me.

This one is just 100% party time. Smooth, sexy, and hilarious.


Toks’ Picks:

Genre-defying remix from the LA-based newcomer, Spazzkid, showcases intricate production with a unique mid-tempo feel.

Early morning grooves on Urulu‘s deep house “re-interpretation” of The Weeknd’s “Twenty Eight”.

Gotta have my dose of liquid drum & bass. Etherwood delivers buttery smooth, stunning tracks time and time again.

Kodak to Graph has been on my radar for a few months now, and he has yet to disappoint. “Aurescent” exemplifies his laid-back, hybridized style with a balance of organic and electronic elements.

The legendary Tipper returns in proper form with an ethereal downtempo gem produced to perfection.
