Jamie xx & Nicolas Jaar – “Girl vs. Work It” (Nico’s Bluewave Edit)
London producer Jamie xx premiered this stunning edit on his second installment of his BBC radio 6 residency series last Friday. The track seamlessly blends the producer’s latest single “Girl” with Nicolas Jaar’s Bluewave edit of Missy Elliot’s “Work It,” a seemingly unlikely pairing, resulting in a hypnotic groove and compelling combination of soul and tenacity.

Matrixxman- “Venetian Mask”
Charles McCloud Duff, who records under the name Matrixxman is set to release a new EP, Amulet, on June 9 via Ghostly International imprint Spectral Sound. The lead track from the record, “Venetian Mask,” was created using several pieces of vintage Roland gear and captures a nostalgic, bouncing house vibe with a dynamic and atmospheric sound. With releases on Crosstown Rebels and Jimmy Edgar’s Ultramajic label already to his name, the San Francisco-based artist has been quickly rising as a name to watch in house and techno.

Bok Bok- “Howard”
The latest tune from London producer Bok Bok, “Howard,” is a jittery funk cut with a sound rooted in 80’s boogie, with a cut up groove that nimbly pauses throughout, making way for thick sub bass and heavy drums. Combining soulful and raucous textures to achieve an full-bodied, focused sound, the track is as innovative as it is referential. Look for “Howard” to appear on Bok Bok’s upcoming EP, Your Charizmatic Self, out May 26 on Night Slugs.
