Ron Hardy “Sensation (Unreleased track version)” (Tape)

From 1984, mesmerising ChiTown instrumental work-in-progress from Ron Hardy’s first Trax EP.

Brrd “Blueberrymix” (Soundcloud)

Futuretense, hypnotic, slow-burning hiptronica from Stewart Bird

Lana Del Rey “Summertime Sadness (Cedric Gervais remix)” (Spinnin’)

Euphoric dancefloor majesty as Ms Del Rey goes for a pirouette under the mirrorball

TV On the Radio “Mercy” (Federal Prism)

Infectiously raw return to the release schedules for the Brooklyn band

Factory Floor “Factory Floor” (DFA)

Ten stunning top-drawer, switched-on, electronic thumpers from the Electric Picnic-bound Londoners, including newbie “Turn It Up” (below)
