Zonoscope by Cut Copy
"Zonoscope came out back in 2011 as Cut Copy's third album, exploring new territories while still retaining their trademark sound. To me, this record is a masterpiece and a total highlight of their career thus far. It's a total journey and covers a lot of ground—from classic rock to Chicago house, their influences run wild all across this record. Extra points for amazing artwork, too." 
Movin' On by Witch
"Witch was a psychedelic band from Zambia that released music throughout the '70s and '80s. Movin' On was heavily sought after until the always reliable Invisible City Editions released a reissue a couple years back. The original pressing is currently going for $6,000 online! Anyway, this record is fantastic to me as it blurs the lines between garage rock, psyche, disco, funk, and soul. Amazing South African music!"
Biology by Young Marco
"Biology has been one of my go-to chill out selections since its release on one of my favorite labels, ESP Institute. Young Marco is one of my favorite DJs, mainly due to his versatility, and I think this record proves exactly that. For some relaxed listening, this will certainly do the job."
Knights In White Satin by Giorgio Moroder
"This late '70s album by Moroder is pretty much unlike anything else he's ever made, and also quite adventurous for the time in which it came out, due to its slow tempo and hazy feel. His music is always cinematic, but I feel like this album is especially vibrant and very underrated. It definitely takes you somewhere if you listen front to back (as you should)." 

Disco Mantras Vol. 1 by Mood Hut
"Vancouver's Mood Hut collective can do no wrong. This album came out earlier this year—it's heavy on the new age/ambient/tribal tip and makes me think of being lost in a rainforest or a tropical island. Great music to begin your day or end your day—it's meditation!"
