UK's Cultivated Electronics welcome German act The Exaltics to the label for the vigorous fast-paced dystopic 'Ten Days', followed by more purist-electro goodness from CE label head Sync 24, a delirious collaboration between himself and Abstract Forms head Deixis and finally CRC (half of Morphology).

It's getting hot hot hot. The best thing to take to the beach is certainly a great DJ mix in your earplugs, and this month wasn't short on first-rate specimen: Kode9, Michael Mayer and dOP mix albums all feature in this newsletter, and Ben Klock even claims more...
