We only jumpstarted our Sounds From The Astral Plane series a few weeks ago, but this edition will (unfortunately) most likely be the last of 2012. We do have a few nice features coming your way in the next couple of days so keep your eyes peeled. This week, we have two (!) Missy Elliot reworks, a quartet of amorphous mixes and more on-point Kid Smpl night bus vibes. Much love as always.
Four Tet aka Kieren Hebden’s latest release, Pink, is more of a collection of singles than an actual album and while a solid work overall, is often quite abrasive. Hebden reclaimed his melodic roots though today, remixing Brooklyn beatsmith FaltyDL’s “Straight and Arrow”. The remix will appear on a single dropping November 13 alongside remixes from Gold Panda and Mike Q. Stream below.
While I sit around feeling sorry for myself because I’m not at Coachella, here are a few musical gems from the past week. We’ve got several great remixes and a couple new originals as well.
