Dezeen is in Eindhoven for the penultimate leg of our Dezeen and MINI World Tour, so we thought we should seek out some musical talent based in the city.

It's rare for a chill-out track to make a big first impression - they tend to be slow-burners by nature - but there's something immediately arresting about Hanging Out Of Moving Vehicles by USA artist RyIm.
We can't put our finger on it, but the combination of skittering drums and echoey guitars seems to hit the spot from the moment the track kicks in.
We featured debut single Magpie by East London musician K H U S H I a few weeks ago on Dezeen Music Project. This stripped-back track called Never Never is the B-side to that release and is available now, together with the main single, on Laissez Faire Club Records.
We used this experimental electronica track by Man Oeuvre on our first Dezeen and MINI World Tour movie from Singapore.
Feeling Beast starts off with glitchy samples, before kicking in with a solid groove that slowly becomes more and more discordant as the track progresses.
We've been using music by London instrumental band Dead Red Sun on the soundtracks for our Dezeen and MINI World Tour movies from the UK capital.
This track called Facility builds up intricately with increasingly busy layers of post-rock guitars before a heavy dose of no-nonsense distortion kicks in halfway through.
Proving that you can remix anything into anything, electronic group Strong Asian Mothers have created a trap-inspired version of a track by London guitar band Francobollo. It's quite a radical departure from the grungy guitar riffs of the original record, which you can check out here.
London Design Festival kicks off next week so we thought it was only right to focus on music by some of the city's upcoming musical talents on Dezeen Music Project over the next few weeks.
In October he'll be releasing his debut single, a heartfelt love song called Magpie. This is a new radio-friendly edit of the track, which he has just finished mixing, but the extended version is definitely worth a listen too.
Here's a remix of a house track called Down with Me by Bristol-based DJ/production duo Tyro.
Tyro don't mess unnecessarily with the four-to-the-floor house formula of the original track by Real Connoisseur, but freshen it up with a more garage-like manipulation of the vocal sample and an unexpected dose of sub-bass.
You can listen to the original track here.
Man Oeuvre is a former acid house DJ based in Berlin, who has turned his hand to making electronica tracks inspired by world music artists.
This track, Ask (The Garden), features flute and shehnai samples from two pieces of Indian music: Gentle Breeze by Rakeesh Chaurasia and Ganesh Paath by Aklahk Hussain.
Her Lips is a dark, brooding electronica record by a Munich-based producer called Berunto. The track starts off with a pulsing and deceptively syncopated synth line, which sets it up for a wonderfully unexpected bass line to kick in a few moments later.
Here's another track by South Korean production duo Save Martin. Capitalism is a ferocious, in-your-face dance track, which features samples from the 2011 sci-fi movie Limitless.
The music we used on today's movie about Domaine de Boisbuchet in France is a track called Filtered Sunshine by Jordan Thomas Mitchell, which we featured on Dezeen Music Project last year.
Here's another track by Jordan Thomas Mitchell called Dead Messenger, which features a similarly gentle acoustic guitar pattern alongside a bluesy electric guitar riff and samples of bird song.
The music we used on the soundtrack to today's movie about this year's Blickfang designworkshop is a track called Gettin' Funky by Wave Crushers, which we featured on Dezeen Music Project in June.
Here's another great house record by the same producers, released by German label Aux Audio. We think it might be even funkier than their previous track.
French producer Junior Size takes us back to the eighties with this acid house-inspired track featuring suitably squelchy synths and a catchy vocal sample.
