Madvillian – From the much lauded <i>Chrome Children</i> compilation comes another track by MF Doom and Madlib, or Madvillian, as we better know them together, handpicked by label boss Peanut Butter Wolf to appear on the two-disc compilation.

Caural – Like his contemporaries Daedelus or Four Tet Beck, Zachary Mastoon likes a few experimental electronics to complement his leftfield hip-hop. By that I mean lush strings and vocal arrangements complemented by crisp, no nonsense hip-hop beats.

Mikkel Meyer – The Copenhagen-based producer released his first EP on Smallfish and hosted radio shows for London’s resonance.fm before turning his attention towards making minimal techno sprinkled with a hint of jazz and dub.

Qwel and Meaty Ogre – The <i>Freezerburner</i> album has been on their minds since the duo met and started making music together in 2000, and combines Qwel’s mic skills with Meaty Ogre’s unbeatable production skills.

Benoît Pioulard – <i>Précis</> is the first album from Thomas Meluch under his moniker, and captures his taste for acoustic guitars layerd over bells, dulcimers, old tape samples, and field recordings that make up the ambient nature of his tracks.
