Richard MacFarlane's Vancouver-based label 1080p is releasing new and interesting electronic music at a considerable clip, and they show no signs of slowing down. It's a little mind-boggling, given the sheer volume of garbage-tier electronic music that currently exists on the internet. Somehow, 1080p manages to consistently unearth dozens of obscure and undervalued artists from the annals of the internet—musicians working within the genre to produce tunes that are both danceable and interesting.

This time around, we have have Saffron's Petra II. It's a smooth run of tracks with some bizarrely wonderful samples and synth sounds, at times veering into chaos but always returning back to the beat. Give it a listen.
