Very pleased to be able to premiere this mix from Montreal-based producer Window. While his own productions have existed somewhere between a glistening, post-Fade to Mind tip and early '90s UK rave energies, the Amino Mix skews towards classic house sounds, with a tracklist that includes artists like Inner City, Speedy J and Orbital.

Window - Reuptake
Inner City - Inner City Theme
Luke Slater's 7th Plain - The Needs of the Many
Speedy J - Pepper
Dettinger - Blond 1
Matrixxman - Credentials
Orbital - Chime Crime
Rhythm & Sound - Carrier
Dr. Alex Paterson - Loving You Live
Xamiga - Unknown Universe

Joel Ford has just dropped a preview of the latest release on his recent-ish Driftless Recordings imprint, in the form of a track from label co-founder Patrick McDermott's North Americans project. "Torch" is seriously deep, blisser drone. Real zoner stuff that strikes a nice balance between smooth spa/lifestyle-derived surface attention and low-end crunch and churn. "Torch" is part of an upcoming North Americans full-length, details of which are forthcoming.

Dick Models' new single for Dracula Horse is all over the place in the best possible way, with twisted funk loops ebbing in and out between scattered digital mulch over the course of its nine-minute long run-time. I previously knew the producer from that great track he did with Teams last year, "Glow Fam", and while that track's blown out, liquid beats are still here, in terms of ambition this is on a whole other tip entirely.

Impossibly optimized stuff from James Grant's experimental-adventure-jazz Spelunks pseudonym. Lite-percussion intersects with warbled oddities on "Wet Towels (Cabana Boy Mix)," which features on the Serenely Skeptical EP, out on Crystal Magic on August 15. Also watch out for James Grant's forthcoming tape under the Abstract Mutation moniker, out soon on 1080p.

Window has reworked the Magic Fades track "Sims Hunk" (from their Obsession mixtape) into slick, streamlined, metallic bliss.


Darkened rave nostalgia in the video for the lead cut from IVVVO's Future EP. Some more words I wrote about Future are here.
