Thefft 'The Primer Ep' - FREE DOWNLOAD (With A Tweet)

A refreshing house release with carefully selected sounds that give the whole EP a beautiful sonic quality. 
Crunchy vintage drum machines sparsely programmed at a slower tempo, emphasizing the dark vibes permeating every groove. Many changes, breakdowns and drops, so right up my alley.
You can download the EP for free, if you 'pay' with a tweet over at the Cut Music website. 
Apparently 9.000 tweets were sent on the first day only, and I thought I was one of the first today...

Here's another house track Thefft posted on Soundcloud a few days ago, a more melodic number with a jazz piano riff chopped over an ever-changing beat, enjoy:

Magnum 'All Over Me' EP = (PNTS002)

From the label's Soundcloud page:
'92 Points the label aims to join the dots between the rapturous heights of 1992 golden-era jungle, turn of the century champagne-bubbly garage, and the modern day mongrel forms that have been shutting down dances of late proving it to be a true ‘nuum imprint. Established by some of the core members of Brixton-centric collective We Are Dubist, 92 Points seeks to combine tight artwork with uncompromising electronic music talent.'

How The LHC (Large Hadron Collider) Works

One of the most comprehensive explanation of the LHC's inner workings I've seen so far.
Bow to the Super Proton Synchrotron:

Opolopo 'Mutants' (TDR11-008)

From the same mix by Moovmnt I mentioned in the previous post, my ears have met for the first time with the beautiful sounds of Opolopo from Sweden. I've only managed to go through the first few pages of his extensive discography so far but I've already heard some amazing work, killer deep house tracks and soul boogie beats, dude's got tha funk. Below just a taste of his latest release, a collection of remixes of vocalists' tracks called 'Mutants' on Tokyo Dawn Records. It was hard to choose which remix to post, the whole comp is quality, go show some LOVE.
Last track is a funk freebie from the man himself.

R.I.P. Heavy D (1967-2011)

2005 YU55, I salute you.

This just happened:

Animation of the trajectory of asteroid 2005 YU55 compared to the orbits of the Earth and the Moon on 8–9 November 2011.

From Wikipedia: 

2005 YU55 is a potentially hazardous asteroid that is 400 meters in diameter. It was discovered on 28 December 2005 by Robert S. McMillan at Steward Observatory, Kitt Peak. On November 8 2011 it passed 0.85 lunar distances (about 324,600 kilometers, or 201,700 miles) from the Earth. This is the closest known approach by an asteroid with an absolute magnitude this bright since 2010 XC15 (H = 21.4) approached within 0.5 lunar distances in 1976.

Randomer 'Real Talk / Lime Pie / Stalker' (NMBRS20)

Randomer has been one of my favourite producers since his appearance on the scene in 2008, no matter what genre he decided to tackle in the studio, dubstep, d&b, uk funky, breaks or house. Broken rhythms with stunning production, crisp percussion and big drums. Worth checking his release on Tru Thoughts and the collabos with Fife for Soul Jazz Rec and Fat! Rec. I've embedded some of these gems below.
Here he serves up three tough but 'straighter' techno/house cuts for all to dance to. Out Nov 28th on Numbers.
