Loose-y Crunché is a spin-off multiplication of Lucy Cliche bringing you irritatingly raw pretty improvised relentless electronic crunch zone headache beats and disjointed noise.
Also one half of WDK, Laura Hunt produces noisy dance brain-hacks via improvisation.
Modded, lowered and reeking of kerosene fumes, Dizzy gets behind the wheel for a few laps of boot-rattling deep house and techno.
From the docks to the big smoke, Spisbah (aka Oil) will envelope you in a puddle of molasses-thick ambient effluent.

"One man's treasure is everyone else's trash".
Indulge my bullshit for a second: yes, I love techno and ambient as much as the next soundcloud DJ, but I also grew up listening to punk, radio rock and every other kind of weirdness I could access via Limewire. I don't really listen to mixes regularly and personally find the whole approach as a dominant way of ingesting music slightly strange. The last mix I listened to more than once was Molly Water's Sanpo Disco one. I refuse to classify these tracks as 'guilty pleasures'. They are just songs that I genuinely enjoy and listen to regularly without any trace of irony. I would have also included 'Klepto Rackz', but I feel that this would be pushing it and people would maybe not believe me (although I do encourage you listen to it). If anyone is interested in a NWOBH or Memphis rap mix, I'd be more than happy to chop you out those as well.
Move to trash and empty the recycle bin on this one.
