XLR8R​+​005 (Scuba, Alex Smoke, and Janeret)

by Various Artists

subscriber exclusive


The fifth edition of XLR8Rplus features exclusive and previously unreleased tracks by Scuba, Alex Smoke, and Janeret, plus an artwork by James Dawe.

We're honored to host the first original Scuba material in two years on this month's edition of XLR8R+. Recorded in between his debut album, A Mutual Antipathy, and its follow up, Triangulation, "Differential" is a bass-heavy techno weapon specifically produced for Berghain's dancefloor. Scuba is joined by a warped, slo-mo technoid cut from Alex Menzies' Alex Smoke alias, and a deep and ethereal minimal from Yoyaku's master of all things dub Janeret. The artwork this time around was created by James Dawe, inspired by the glitchy, post-apocalyptic vibes of the music, which were then injected into the evolving cyber-space visual aesthetic. Like last month, we've included a 50-track Spotify playlist, once again featuring a diverse range of tracks, both old and new.

As is the case with all the editions, XLR8R+005 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.
