Rollin' Deep

Starting real slow today with some fantastically oddball beats. Jamie xx of the award-winning new wave/pop group the xx brings his gorgeously minimal aesthetic to Adele's beautiful vocals as the song is propelled by afro-latin drums and those haunting bells the xx are known to favor. If you loved the xx remix of "You Got The Love" you're gonna love this one, too. And I must say, I fucking LOVE this song.
Adele - Rolling In The Deep (Jamie xx Shuffle)

This next track sounds like a love child resulting from an affair between Neon Indian and Flying Lotus. Fuzzy, sun-soaked synths and ethereal yet sassy vocals color this track from Tobacco and Zackey Force Funk.
Tobacco - Lamborghini Meltdown ft. Zackey Force Funk

These next two are the kinds of crazy electro tracks I'm sure you used to getting from me, the first from Canadian John Roman and the second from one of the most technically talented electro/dubstep artists in the game, Skrillex.
John Roman - Sphere

Casxio - Seventeen (Skrillex Remix)

Disco of Doom took this track and turned it into a slow-burning electro funk exhibition. A+ work from these filthy British gentlemen.
Kele - Everything You Want (Disco of Doom Remix)

Bright & Shiny Hall of Famer, Treasure Fingers, takes a break from the nu-disco circuit to try his hand at crafting house music. And how deftly he does it, employing classic house synths like a seasoned pro. If there was ever any question concerning the depth and versatility of Treasure Fingers' talent, it has assuredly been put to rest.
Senor Stereo - I Am the Beat ft. Louisahhh!!! (Treasure Fingers Remix)

Prevalent house vocalist Miss Kittin kills it, solo, on this track with a minimal, old-school feel. This one's for the househeads.
Miss Kittin - All You Need (Original Mix)

And last and most certainly least (due exclusively to its association with Ke$ha) is this electro-banger by Artistic Raw & Loopers. In the words of a wise YouTube commenter, "this song is even dirtier than Ke$ha."
Ke$ha - We R Who We R (Artistic Raw & Loopers Remix)
