Also in our download sack today:
Brooklyn producer Kingdom is behind two of New York’s key clubs right now: the dance/hip-hop hybrid of Club Vortex and the shameless celebration of RnB that is ddarkk. He’s remixed the likes of Kid Sister and Telepathe and recently released his first original track on A-Trak’s label Fool’s Gold, the quasi-8-Bit, kind of garagey monster ‘Mind Reader’.


We’ve got the slightly less full-on cut-up version from L-Vis 1990. Download it here.

Also on the net:
Brooklyn duo Tanlines have remixed Bombay Bicycle Club’s ‘Dust On The Ground’ to great effect. Get the mix at Stereogum alongside their versions of The Tough Alliance, Solid Gold, Au Revoir Simone and more.
If you liked the Fabio Lendrum mix from last week, CFCF have done their own take on the track – get it at RCRD LBL.
