They release by far the best mastered electronic albums, so it's always a treat.

YES! I will be listening to that shortly... discovered them just recently and already bought their previous two albums.
They have been my favourite electronic music artists since they released Adventures of Mr. Fox. In early 2016, they said they would finally make their first album. They didn't release a new Movember collab in 2016 because of that. So far, they've been working a year on this album and knowing what they are capable of, my expectation is high.
Here's a list that Pitchfork just came out with on their 50 best IDM albums of all time, as well as some insight into the sub-genre's history and a couple dozen samples. Their selections are top notch, many of which I too agree with. Check it:
Ya man, those are great. It's just this concept of DJ mixes I recently discovered....
The new Infected Mushroom is totally fun!
Thanks for the link but it looks like that website was hacked on the weekend. I noticed after coming back to it after a couple days it had a ton of forced pop ups (which it didn't before), some pointing toward Live XXX websites and now the website is offline.
Yeah beat mixing came about in the late 60's, apparently (link). I certainly remember how myriad sets on special radio shows (both nationally syndicated and locally mixed) lit up my moments throughout the 90's and beyond. It was primarily done on vinyl, and nowadays is done mostly with software and/or virtual turntables. I've managed to do seamless multi-genre beat mixing on combinations of cassette and/or CD in the mid 90's - in the secrecy of my bedroom
Not only electronic music but also hip-hop has heavy roots in beat mixing. And here is one of the most relevant sources for great quality DJ sets, for free:
