Love the way Machinedrum allows my inner Junglist out, but just enough for him to peek out from a newly laid viewing platform. The video seems to had a fair bit of flack, and true it does come across like a futuristic, homoerotic West Side Story but to be honest, it's not actually that bad.

Future Classic release a sinister video for this beautiful but brooding tune from fellow Sydney dwellers, Seekae.

To further prove their impeccable taste, on October 7th, Future Classic are also releasing an EP from our boys Bodhi. You can preorder the vinyl here.

Downright creepy remix of Claire Maguire's already haunting track, 'Paper Thin' from Strange U producer Dr Zygote. Although it hasn't got the space to let the stunning vocals breathe like the original I think the heavier, industrial sounding beats help to underline them even better.

Dr Zygote also released his Grupo Zygote EP with the excellent Black Acre label earlier this month and has an EP on his own Zoot imprint due October 7th. You can grab a free track from the Black Acre EP plus an 'influences' mix below.

I'm not sure who was behind this mini remix album for Italian composer Ludovico Einaudi, but top marks to them because there are some stunning collaborations. The album came out this week and includes contributions from Starkey, Phaeleh, Steven Siegel and Robert Lippok. You can buy a copy here.

Also, speaking of Phaeleh, he can be found guesting on the new album from our fellow Cardiff lad Lung, which is out now on Hospital off shoot, Med School. You can stream the whole thing below.

New album from Detroit Hip-hop crew Clear Soul Forces just dropped today. Saw them in London last night, they might be a little raw and unrefined in places but their skills are undeniable and what they might lack in polish, they make up for 10 fold in unbounded energy, passion, character and general youthful exuberance. Been a fan for a little while now and any Hip-hop head should find something refreshing in their music.

Here's a couple of our favourites from the new release but you can buy a copy here or stream the whole think over at Okay Player.
