This month our friends at Solé Bicycles have partnered up with our pals over at Thump, the killer new electronic music and culture channel from VICE, to bring us a truly special fixtape. The godfather of funk, the french king of disco, the Ed Banger legend himself, Breakbot laid down close to 40 minutes of slow burning grooves. Although this tape is timeless, we highly urge you to throw it on now.
You can find the Download & Tracklisting HERE
[Giveaway] As an added bonus, a Solé bicycle designed by Breakbot himself will be given away through THUMP. Check out the contest details HERE for your chance to enter.
In celebration of the Win & Friends stage at Life is Beautiful Festival in Las Vegas this weekend, the label’s founder, Sean Glass, offers up an excellent one and half hour mix. Featuring many deep house gems and unreleased material mostly from Win Music, the mix highlights Glass as a distinctive tastemaker and a skillful DJ. Check out the mix below, and if you’re going to LIB, be sure to spend some time at the Win & Friends stage (lineup after the jump).
Turbo Recordings artists, Clouds, have teamed up with our friends at The Well here in Los Angeles for a forward-thinking soundtrack to accompany the boutique store’s new Empyrean Layer campaign. Dark, futuristic, and cutting edge, Clouds’ track selection in this unique mix follows suit to the collection of pieces from visionary brands like UNIF, Skingraft, D by D, and more. Have a listen below and check out the full campaign lookbook here.
Timing couldn’t be more perfect for another installment from our friends over at Solé Bicycles to drop off another fixtape. Anna Lunoe has created a timeless & moody mix for the transient seasons as summer is ending and the nights are getting colder. Chill out and warm up, this one is for the soul.
Our very own aRod returns with another seasonal mix – FallGaze 2013. Whether it’s warm indie/disco sounds to fit the feel of the Indian Summer or darker, sexier deep house/minimal sounds to go with the cooler, moody feel of Autumn, this mix will fit whatever vibe you’re feelin’. The track list includes originals from Nadia Ksaiba, Hot Natured, LUXRY & Daniel Avery plus remixes by Diamond Cut, Grafton Primary, GRUM, Jonas Rathsman, PIXELATED and many more. Extra special shout out goes to the artists/labels/management who helped out with a few exclusives (Kaytranada’s remix of “Perfect Form” by Cyril Hahn and Joe Goddard’s remix of “Everything You Never Had” by Breach).
LISTEN. SHARE. ENJOY.

Todd Edwards is a G. Besides his obvious accolades like working with the robots on multiple albums and releasing scores of singles and remixes in his 20+ year career, his vocal reconstruction technique in productions (along with another G, Marc Kinchen) has truly set him apart over the rollercoaster ride of dance music in America since the 90s. To call Todd Edwards an innovator would be absolutely spot on, which is why the reputable XLR8R asked him to put together an hour long selection for their new mix series, Innovators.
This is honestly one of the better mixes that I’ve heard in a while, and the high number of quality unreleased tracks that Edwards has included in here is just splendid. Get it on ya. √+
