Hobo - Incise
I’m just going to leave this one here.
"Another Minus smasher (and my favorite tune so far this season), this track got the treatment by Maceo Plex at the Amneisa opening, just before heading to Underworld’s ‘Born Slippy’ to finish things up for the day, as well as Uner’s Pulse Radio podcast. It’s, deep, twisted, undulating synth grooved out of Amnesia’s terrace speakers, shaking the floor and vibrating our chests as Maceo danced along, making for one of the most welcome returns to any club a techno fan could have asked for."
Avatism - A Farewell Portrait
Peep this minimal-leaning deep house by Italian DJ Avatism. I found this tune on one of Das Kraftfuttermischwerk’s podcasts… If you haven’t ever checked them out, they have something for every style and flavor of electronic.
Some quality MN+ML (minimal) by Gaiser. Listen to this one only if you like minimal. Otherwise you will think, ‘boring, repetitive.’ I think it is ill.
Gregor Tresher - A Thousand Nights (Dubfire Quiet Storm Remix) [download]
While I sit at SFO waiting to board my plane to Seattle, I realized a few things. 1) I really like airports for some reason, especially with a good playlist… I can walk around and wander for days. 2) I haven’t posted a whole lot of minimal electronica, which is definitely one of my favorite subgenres of electronic music. I really enjoy Dubfire's remix of “A Thousand Nights,” as it layers each element perfectly as the song progresses. My mind can easily catch on to each piece of the song, and as it builds and nears its peak, I feel at peace with this sort of music. This track is definitely one of my favorites of the genre. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Moderat - A New Error [download]
Moderat is Modeselektor and Apparat’s collaborative project, which is a dark mixture of glitch, minimal, and techno. The beginning track on the self-titled album, A New Error is absolutely beautiful and demonstrates their stellar use of glitches and breaks. This music is best listened to with nice headphones or a stereo with superb bass, as the entire album is very bass heavy as it is synth-rich.
Some other notable tracks on this excellent album are Rusty Nails, No. 22, and Porc #1.
Download Moderat’s eponymous album here! (You really want to get this one, it’s a nice 320 rip :) and the bass sounds fabulous.)
