Find them at basement nights and warehouse one-offs reaching from New York to Montreal and overseas Berlin, a collective of connoisseuring clubbers. The recent flood of clichéd counterfeits has left much of today's dance music better left unheard, but it's the rumours stuck in our head that tug at our ego and give us the need to shine light. A compulsive urge to spread from one ear to the next, to draw a line between bottle service cogs and the cutting edge of electronic music, music built to live in. There's no room for Vegas roller coasters or casual chit chat, just Night Rumours worth spreading.
Light in the Dark:
Lawrence has a refreshing take on classic sounds with a style that just seems to always be "in". Looking into his immense back catalog as far back as 2000 when he first released on Kompakt, it's clear that he's never strayed too far from his roots. His release "Nowhere Is A Place" out on Smallville Records a few months ago is another mark on an already stellar release schedule, especially as of late, and his full length on Mulemusiq features eight more tracks that deserve the recognition he finally seems to be garnering.

Nature of Music, since their debut in 2009, have gone on to not only receive praise from Hernan Cattaneo himself as "ones to watch for", but earlier this year released a standout EP on Sudbeat. The Toronto based duo also run an event company Equaria that is involved in parties like this past weekend's pirate ship sunset cruise with Hoj. They've put together an exclusive mix today for EARMILK that showcases their particular style perfectly. If there's one thing to take from a Nature of Music set it's the sense of a journey, and this mix is yet another great example.
