The temperature circulating around the XLR8R offices was quite stifling throughout the month of August, and luckily we had quite a collection of MP3s to cool us off during its hottest moments. The big bass and dubbed-out soul-shockers from the likes of Hudson Mohowke and the Jubilee and Udachi combo definitely came in handy, while The Bloody Beetroots and The Cool Kids mash of Italo rave and hip-hop turned out to be all the rage. Elsewhere, Ethernet and Pollination checked in to melt our minds with some scorched, desert psychedelia while All Tiny Creatures peeled up the Krautrock Autobahn with its motorik gears set on overdrive. And as always, Underworld are still kings of the dancefloor.
