A huge week in terms of most-anticipated, upcoming releases and shit, as we hear the second cuts from both ‘Coexist‘ and ‘Pacifica‘, behind these gems The xx and The Presets respectively. Both showcase an expansive soundscape from previous work and only add to the excitement of each. Finishing us off is a curveball, production link-up in electro-dude Boys Noize and massive-douche Skrillex. Hint: it’s pretty good.

The Presets // Ghosts
Dog Blood // Next Order (Teaser)
Leading the charge in an underground special, hype-boy Cid Rim takes the heat and proves his metal as ‘Draw‘ is taken from his recently released record to much acclaim (in all the right circles). Something we posted earlier this week gets an official video, as the ridiculously named LOL Boys have their baby rubbed in all the right ways by the effervescent Shlohmo while another remix has it’s go, this time SebastiAn taking on Van She

LOL Boys // Changes (Shlohmo Remix)
Van She // Idea Of Happiness (SebastiAn Remix)
Continuing from above, Boys Noize receives another nod for his stellar guest mix for Diplo and all his friends on the BBC. It’s a raucous half hour from the German label head, giving us a chance to catch what the iconic producer is jamming to. A couple of home-grown disco sets in here as well, with monthly featured Cosmonauts crashing in with their ‘July Top Ten‘ and the return of Miami Horror!
