NPR Music producers Sami Yenigun and Otis Hart return once again to hold court with Bob Boilen on the best new electronic music. This episode of All Songs Considered includes tracks from superstars M83 and Four Tet, a collaboration between Burial and Massive Attack, off-the-radar releases from The Field, Luca Bacchetti, Roll the Dice and RxRy, and a mysterious single from an unknown artist.

Along the way, Sami and Otis explain some of the peculiarities and buzzwords of the electronic scene, such as "dubplate culture," and why dance tracks so often sound like one long middle.
