The sixth edition of XLR8R+ features exclusive and previously unreleased tracks from Varg, Deadbeat, and Lapien, plus artwork by Felix Koch.

Kicking off this month’s offering is Northern Electronics’ Jonas Rönnberg, better known as Varg, who delivers “nti nti,” a typically bleak and textural techno track produced specifically for XLR8R. Rönnberg is joined by Canada’s master of all things dub Deadbeat with the deep, emotionally charged “Keep On Dancing,” with Dutch producer Lapien closing out the edition with a slice of melancholic piano-driven house. The artwork for the sixth edition was created by German architect and photographer Felix Koch, who translated the melancholic “loneliness” found in the music into a haunting multimedia piece. Once again we’ve also included a 50-track Spotify playlist featuring tracks inspired by this month’s offering and arriving from all areas of the sonic spectrum. 

XLR8R+006 is available to download as a package to XLR8R+ subscribers for one month only, featuring the three tracks in both WAV and MP3 formats, a dedicated zine, and wallpaper artwork for both desktop and phone.
