Machine Life

machinelife1While they’re hard at work putting the finishing touches on their first official single release (due out this fall), the beauties over at Machine Life were kind enough to ask for a contribution to their fantastic Eclectronic Sessions series, all of which is currently up on their SoundCloud. The below result is a freewheeling attempt to cover as much space as possible without too great of a sacrifice to the level of groove. For a listing of tracks, please check out the version on MixCloud.

A mix for bike riding, working out, and smoking cigarettes on a porch.

Rich as Stink

Escape whatever blizzard you’re in, or amplify your non-winter weather, with the inaugural (and slightly sloppy) Lovers Made Men mix: Tropical Long Johns

Always there


Los Angeles-based producer and Wedidit crew member D33J drops his new track “Always There” without ever leaving the comfortable confines of the front seat of an automobile in the seventh installment of the ever-entertaining Carsick series from INTOTHEWOODS.TV. (Luckily, he called shotgun or this would have been a lot less interesting.) As with his previous Tide Songs release, D33J’s new track is an enchanting, airy mixture of tropicalia and glitch.

This must be L.A.

Liquid sunshine


Passing through cities

3500240679-1Submerse crafted his newest collection of beats with the urban environment in mind.  The dreamlike swirl of a city seen through a moving bus.  Pockets of flurried activity followed by serene expanses of grass.  This is the eponymous single off of his upcoming album out March 15th.
