Local Action Records’ (T. Williams, Contakt) radio show last night had Laurel Halo and Brenmar along as guests. Both contributed mixes to the show, which you can download an MP3 of on this page. Look out for Laurel Halo’s forthcoming EP on Hippos In Tanks this month too.

XLR8R’s podcast series has long since been one of the best out there, with great mixes coming from Nicolas Jaar, John Talabot and Virgo Four. For part one their 200th edition, they’ve got Detroit techno pioneer Richie Hawtin mixing under his Plastikman alias. Listen and download the podcast here.

Manchester producer Holy Other is releasing his ‘With U’ EP on Tri Angle records today. He’s also done a rather good mix for Altered Zones, which you can listen to here. He’s playing The Shacklewell Arms in London on June 14th. Details here.

Hippos In Tanks will release Laurel Halo’s ‘Hour Logic’ EP on 21st June 2011
