NPR's Sami Yenigun and Otis Hart are back to talk beats, loops, drops and more with Bob Boilen. The latest electronic edition of All Songs Considered includes cuts from the new Grimes album, a surprise EP from Burial, a Burnt Friedman remix of South African dance music and premieres from Claude VonStroke, Nina Kraviz and VCMG — a collaboration between two former bandmates in Depeche Mode.

Also on the show: Hot Chip's Joe Goddard emerges with the side project The 2 Bears, and the mysterious Spanish producer John Talabot unveils his first proper album. Plus, Sami and Otis discuss the homegrown sounds coming out of San Francisco and explain the logic behind limited-edition releases.
