Maylee Todd presents "Downtown"

Maylee Todd is the best. She is our favorite. We have been die hard fans since the first time we saw her perform, and even moreso when we soaked up her debut album. Now, along with her legions of adoring fans, we are being treated to round two.

This is exciting for so many reasons, one of the first being this beautiful new single "Downtown". Press play on this right here, we promise you're gonna love it:

Carl Craig: 'At Les' Versus Edit Version

Carl Craig's latest release is a reinvention of a track from 1997's 'More Songs About Food And Revolutionary Art'.  Behold the Versus edit of 'At Les', a song Craig created while watching across the river from Detroit.  The song has evolved through time and takes on a cinematic element with this new instrumentation.  The song is performed alongside Xavier Roth, Les Siècles and Francesco Tristano in this new incarnation.  The track is available here.
