XLR8R​+​004 (Hunter​/​Game, Cosmin TRG, and John Dimas)

by Various Artists

subscriber exclusive


The fourth edition of XLR8Rplus features exclusive and previously unreleased tracks by Hunter/Game, Cosmin TRG, and John Dimas, plus an artwork by Rhys Carlill.

It's a pleasure to welcome Martino Bertola and Emmanuele Nicosia (Hunter/Game) back to the XLR8R pages. The Milanese duo deliver a brooding slice of emotional techno, the first taste of a wealth of new material, including an album, that will land soon. Their work is complemented by some mind-bending lo-fi techno from Romania's Cosmin TRG, sure to be a DJ favorite, before Greek artist John Dimas closes this month's edition with a typically wonky minimal groove (and a Raresh favorite, we're told). The artwork this time around comes from Australian artist Rhys Carlill—inspired by the hazy LA cityscape—with additional mastering once again provided by Kamran Sadeghi. As a further addition to the XLR8R+ offering, we've included a 50-track Spotify playlist this month, featuring a diverse array of tracks both new and old.

As is the case with all the editions, XLR8R+004 is available to download as a package, featuring the three tracks in both WAV and MP3 formats, a dedicated zine, and wallpaper artwork for both desktop and phone.

We thank you for joining our independent movement.

Enjoy the music.
