From the looks of it, The Interns will be filing all of their TPS reports in a timely manner. The LA-based duo kicked off the project a month ago with the release of their first mix, “The Interns Present: Day Off,” which marked the launch of their bi-monthly mix series and amassed over 40,000 Soundcloud streams. Their newest feature is their monthly “Industry Analysis” playlist series, in which they have gathered 20 essential tracks that the average music consumer may have skipped over. The first edition contains gems from the likes of Booka Shade, Kidnap Kid, Lindsay Lowend, 16 Bit Lolitas, Tom Misch, Overjoy and more. Ranging from the realms of house music to future bass, “Industry Analysis 001″ has a little something for everyone.

Black Butter is just a one-stop shop for audio gold. Repping guys like Gorgon City, Rudimental, and Kidnap Kid, the London-based imprint is undeniably at 100, and Kidnap Kid‘s upcoming Stronger EP due out March 3rd is keeping it that way. Just revealed this week is the title track and A-side to the two-tune EP — a rainy day House number with some emotional vocals that personally give me an incisive Karin Dreijer Andersson vibe. Check it out for yourself below. √+

Not sure how this guy has snuck under my radar for so long, but I’m glad he’s finally been brought to my attention with his most recent release, Thin Lines – the two-track EP from Kidnap Kid released the other week on the incredibly solid Black Butter Records. The stream has racked up nearly 150K plays via Soundcloud in 9 days, and it’s easy to see why. “Thin Lines” is soulful, old school House music, combining Lotti’s yearning vocals with on point percussion and subtle piano. The B-side, “Survive,” picks up where the title track leaves off, taking you on a 7 1/2 minute journey of emotional bliss, once again getting the piano involved to strike chords deep within. Not going to miss anything from Kidnap Kid moving forward. Stream the EP below and download a new remix and mix after the jump! √+
