Teardrop On Roads
Jaya Prime is a traveling producer from Austin, Texas. Each album or EP he produces is influenced by a different kind of music and comes together with stories and photos from his travels. Jaya Prime on Soundcloud: “I’m the hitchhiking monk of the electronica world. Possibly the only one. My business is in surprising cops in small towns everywhere with the portable studio in my hikers’ pack. You really should see their faces… McPriceless!” Recently the backpacker started doing mash-ups with one of his first being a mash-up of Portishead and Massive Attack.

Odd Year is David Gonzalez, a Californian based electronic music producer. We featured him before as Drop & Solo, a collaboration with vocalist Will Curry. Now the producer has joined a remix contest hosted by Radiohead’s drummer Philip Selway in which one has to remix ‘Beyond Reason’, a solo track from Selway.

Speaking of Radiohead, their 2008 track ‘Reckoner’ got another nice re-edit. Jason Shockley or Jayshock did the work, re-arranging the track and adding a nice slow buildup.

This Must Be The Place
The single ‘This Must Be The Place’ by Talking Heads was released in 1983. 27 years later and we just received a very nice Re-edit by Brittish Psychemagik. Just one of those tunes of which we really don’t mind playing it, even when it’s decades old.
