XLR8R​+​006 (Varg, Deadbeat, and Lapien)

by Various Artists

subscriber exclusive


The sixth edition of XLR8R+ features exclusive and previously unreleased tracks from Varg, Deadbeat, and Lapien, plus artwork by Felix Koch.

Kicking off this month's offering is Northern Electronics' Jonas Rönnberg, better known as Varg, who delivers "nti nti," a typically bleak and textural techno track produced specifically for XLR8R. Rönnberg is joined by Canada's master of all things dub Deadbeat with the deep, emotionally charged "Keep On Dancing," with Dutch producer Lapien closing out the edition with a slice of melancholic piano-driven house. The artwork for the sixth edition was created by German architect and photographer Felix Koch, who translated the melancholic "loneliness" found in the music into a haunting multimedia piece.

As is the case with all the editions, XLR8R+006 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.
