Christian Löffler‘s debut album A Forest isn’t set to be released until June 18th, but already it’s generating some pretty serious buzz. This is no simple dance record, however: Löffler wants to take you down to Ambience Town. His latest LP is inspired by nature, equal parts warmth and melancholy. The Cologne-based musician and founder of Ki Records has been slowly revealing his lush, dreamlike world with a few tracks here and there, but today we’re pleased to bring you the entire album, available to stream into your ears as you get lost in his personal forest fantasy. Listen to it here exclusively:

Don’t know much about Daytime Television, never was a big fan of watching television during the day – besides the Tour de France of course. This jam is from DT’s upcoming split with Orange Blossom Flyover 23 ? 45 on I Had An Accident Records.

Smooth bass music from belgian-boy Gullfisk, who uses some gorgeous vocal sampling techniques that will have you meltin’ on the floor. Track is off his soundcloud, more to come soon via Hot N Heavy Recordings.
