Enjoying the crystalline club-surfaces in these tracks from Melbourne producer Air Max '97. The Internal NRG EP is cracked club music with deconstructed Nike swooshes and skittering hip-hop beats, not unlike the sparse productions you hear on Night Slugs releases. Name your price downloads available over at the producer's Bandcamp page.

Stoked to be getting the first jump on this brand new mix from shimmering house purveyor Maxmillion Dunbar in light of his Australian tour, which kicks off this Saturday. His most recent full-length, House of Woo, which came out on the always on-point RVNG imprint, has been on steady rotation for months now for its spacious, off-kilter brand of classically-informed house. The mix he's put together for Australian blog/promoters Noise In My Head leans heavily on the kind of heady, freeform '90s house his sets are famous for, and is a seriously deep taste of what's in store.
Sat 15 June – Pelvis x Noise In My Head @ Goodgod Small Club, Sydney (Tickets onsale now at RA)
Fri 21 June – Gilkisons Dance Studio, Perth
Sat 22 June – Bamboo Musik x Noise In My Head @ Mercat X, Melbourne (Tickets onsale now at RA)
Also, take a look at the Aurora Halal directed video for "Loving the Drift":

DYLAN ETTINGER - The Pale Mare from TACHYONS+ on Vimeo.
Dark and slippery synth vibes in this Logan Owlbeemoth directed video for Dylan Ettinger's new track. An appropriately mulched and horror-flick sampling visual palette fleshes out the seriously creepy dread of the tune, which can be found on a split 7" between Ettinger and Goldendust, out on the new DKA imprint, run by the folks behind Featureless Ghost.

Sun Araw touring member Alex Gray's underappreciated Deep Magic project has tended to issue a diverse range of stuff, from murky, underwater techno through to aural-fixated, appropriately deep soundscapes. This new track, from his third full-length, Reflections of Most Forgotten Love, is firmly in the later category -- zoned arpeggios bounce off layers of tape-hiss and low-end crunch, while soft but shambolic percussion periodically makes an appearance.
Reflections of Most Forgotten Love is out June 25 on Australian imprint Preservation.

Knoxville, Tennessee's Walsh has a new single out on the reliable and revamped Dracula Horse label. "First Time" is a particularly slick, loop-based filter-house number, and a good sign of what's to come when the producer drops a more substantial release later in the year.

Something else from SFV Acid's upcoming full-length for UNO, which drops on May 28 and reportedly written entirely at Starbucks. "PT Sex" is a short but compelling excursion, glistening with a tech-induced, acid-inflected sheen, at the same time it points to over-caffeinated unease.

Seriously cosmic interstitial visions on this new track from Egyptian Sports Network - a duo comprising Spencer Clark (Skaters, Monopoly Child Star Searchers) and Matt Mondanile (Ducktails, Real Estate), and on this track also featuring Mark McGuire. "Leo in Cyan" updates the nu age palette for the age of satellite transmission, and is part of the five-track Interstitial Luxor EP, out soon on New Images Ltd.

MP3: Golden Donna - All Alone (Blown Out Spring '13 Mix)
Madison, Wisconsin's Golden Donna has remixed one of his old tracks, which initially saw release for free on bandcamp last year. The track is based around a syrupy sample, which this mix loops in a laconic fashion and punctuates with some nice rapid-fire snare work. Stream below via soundcloud, or we've got a download of the mp3 above.

Auckland bedroom producer Lightening continues exploring the infinite youtube realms of forgotten club-classics with this edit of Sonic Food's "Ascend". Tempering its pitched-up late-hardcore maniacal strain, Eamonn Logan reimagines the track as a slicked-up slice of early-90s UK techno.

Great little vid from LA's Pod Blotz, for a track that's out on their new Dungeon Taxis cassette, Timeless. The track is straight outta the dream-zone, with an undercurrent of crunchy, pulsating noise interfacing with otherworldly drone remnants. Listen to another bit from the tape below.
