Good evening, friends.
I figured it would be time to resurrect my long-dormant weekly segment once again. We've been extremely busy this past month, and our posting has often taken a hit, but now that we're speeding towards a glorious summer, we'll definitely have more time to focus on the complete redesign of the site.
For those of you unfamiliar with Best of the Rest, it's a segment where I post 5 songs that we've received in the AtV inbox. We receive tons of great tunes all of the time, and it's been a long time since we've posted any of them. Hope you enjoy the post, and don't forget to show the producers some love if you dig their stuff. Even a simple message of props and respect goes a long way, people. It's all about the love, anyways.
1. Microprophet (CAN)
Spangled Ballet- Birdie (Microprophet remix)
This is some seriously heavy stuff. This Canadian duo makes hard hitting electro with a Dancehall twist. They've been featured on Kissy Sell Out's show on BBC Radio 1, and have been remixed by many great Canadian acts, like Dooze Jackers, Black Tiger Sex Machine, Botnek, Barletta and more.
2. Ninjasonik (USA)
Ninjasonik ft The Partysquad- Moshpit
Ninjasonik need absolutely no introduction. Honestly, if you're into the dutch house scene, neither does The Partysquad. This high-octane punk/electro/rap hybrid, called Moshpit, is sure to crank any party into overdrive. This is switchblade rave music.

3. Slice & Soda (FRA)
Slice & Soda- Year of the Dragon (Villa remix)
One of the dopest clothing brands around, Sixpack France, is starting up a new record label, and "Year of the Dragon" is their first release. Slice & Soda is a collaboration between mighty producer Para One and San Serac, and the EP features 2 original songs and remixes from Villa, Jackson & L-Vis 1990. Here's the funky Villa remix for you guys to download.

4. Broke One (ITA)
Kry Wolf- Everybody (Broke One remix Version 2)
I've been following Italy's Broke One for a little while now, so it was nice to see this pop up in the inbox today. He's a very gifted artist who has a serious knack for producing great house music that is both relevant and nostalgic at the same time. This remix continues his winning streak, as Broke One injects a healthy dose of summery vibes into this sexy breezer of a tune. This remix is brought to you by Sounds of Sumo.
5. Arcade Discoforgia (ITA)
Freelance Whales- Hannah (Discoforgia remix)
Arcade Discoforgia is back on AtV with an interesting refix of Freelance Whales' tune Hannah. While it never really takes off properly, I dig the meandering funky 8-bit cacophony.
