Listening Station is an AiMT feature dedicated to exploring full new retail release streams via Spotify, SoundCloud, Bandcamp, etc. You must have Spotify installed on your machine to play the Spotify streams (duh).
New stuff by Beaumont, Kool A.D., DJ Spinna and BBE Soundsystem, Dylan Ettinger, and Rustie.
I'm sticking close to the bass-oriented themes of the last two podcasts and venturing into some of my favorite cuts from recent years in the leftfield “beat” scene, which is most prominent in L.A. and led (arguably) by Flying Lotus.

Just a quick heads up that Fix Ultra Lounge will be getting moombahtastic tonight with :Dface, Kid Cedek and Brent Tactic. Local support by Bizar and EQ. Streams galore:
:Dface - No Stopping EP
Kid Cedek - Rot10 Invades Miami Volume 2 EP
Nicholas Jaar - "Variations (Brent Tactic Moombahton Edit)"
