Mad EP – He’s best known as one-half of hip-hop duo Mad/EQ, but Matthew Peters runs the gamut of breakbeat, classical, jazz, noise, hip-hop, and funk in his many projects, setting himself apart from the crowd.

Panther – Bring forth the unpredictable and energetic debut solo project from Portland’s “one-man disaster squad.” On Secret Lawns, Panther only furthers his aim to mash as many synth freakouts, falsetto lyrics, and jittery dance routines as possible together.

Digitalism – Many show dates and remixes later, the French duo releases its debut full-length. Idealism makes for an album of distorted, rough grooves, blankly delivered lyrics, and some pleasant hints of rock and roll.

ZAMAN 8 – The San Francisco-based world/electronic duo draws on Persian and Indian classical traditions, jazz improvisation, African rhythms, and modern dance grooves to create music that’s eclectic, likable, and built to last.

Move.meant – Comprised of producer J. Beats, DJ Spider, and MC Champ, the group brings a certain energy to its music reminiscent of the genre’s “golden age,” which makes for a refreshing change of pace in the current age of hip-hop.
