Bizzart – Collaborations with Deerhoof and Soul Junk are a testament to the restless spirit inherent in his music, a sound that straddles the worlds of hip-hop and performance art. he also splits his time behind the mic and in front of students at a private school in Pasadena.

Count Bass D – Nashville, TN is hardly known as a center for hip-hop, but it’s also why he seems to thrive there. He works far outside of the margins of Music City USA, and maybe even farther outside of the bi-coastal hip-hop blueprint.

Trentemøller – His latest release, The Last Resort, will prove to be his true opus. An ode to breakups, the album captures a whole range of emotions in subtle, melodic miniatures; dreamy ambient pieces; dusty beats; deep dub tracks; and driving, groove excursions.

ObliqSound – More than just some tracks inside flashy packaging, Volume 2. of the ObliqSound Remixes is contained a suite of nu-jazz gems reworked by the likes of Matthew Herbert, Osunlade, Mark de Clive-Lowe, and more.

Pit er Pat – The band toured extensively through most of 2005, and for Pyramids, they carried with them the creative momentum that those shows had fueled, recording the music as it came together organically, capturing the sounds at their freshest.
