Ben UFO, Helena Hauff, Objekt and the Seven Best Things We Heard This Week

All the sounds that have been wearing out our headphones this week.

By this point you'd think we'd have stopped saying "well that was a rough seven days" at the end of every week—sadly the world has continued fall apart in obvious and destructive ways. That said, there's some respite in the continuing, if not strengthened, output of electronic artists all over the world. This week we've enjoyed some sparse new work from Herron and Joy Orbison, on the latter's Hinge Finger imprint (run with Will Bankhead). Feels like we put a new Darkstar track in this list every week but when they sound as good as this collaboration with Gaika does, it's impossible not to. Elsewhere Addison Groove has turned in a bewildering Chic edit, there's a new rattling slammer from a Keita Sano, and Twisted Nerve head Andy Votel has turned in two hours of gorgeous selections for Dekmantel's Selectors series. Finally this week saw two absolutely mammoth mixes uploaded. Firstly Ben UFO and Helena Hauff's triumphant back to back from Sonar last month, and the untouchable Objekt's Kern mix which is, genuinely, one of the best mixes you'll hear all year.
