There were quite some mixes to feature recently, including a special for Christmas, but there are already some more goodies for you. Maybe not that many as on a usual Mixtape Monday, but the selection is quite diverse.
I haven’t heard much new music from Âme lately, but as of yesterday, there’s a new mixtape from the German duo.
Alpha Pup sub-label Friends of Friends will put out the debut album from 19 year old Shlohmo, titled “Shlomoshun Deluxe” in early January. To get you in the mood for that, XLR8R’s latest podcast was put together by the man.
From Ben UFO comes this mixtape called Why Not?, which is also available for limited download. As I got the download link from Sonic Router, I should also mention they also feature a second mixtape from Untold.
There was a big hype around the mixtape from Holy Ghost!, which was available in limited quantities on a real cassette. For Christmas, the duo on New York’s DFA label gave it away for a limited, now expired, download. Luckily, you can still find it in other places.
And if you’re into DFA and the likes, you might also want to check out Mehdi Mixmas, a mix put together by Ed Banger’s DJ Mehdi.
Berlin’s Robot Koch and his friend DJ Benski have put together a guestmix for French blog Jekyll & Hyde, you can download it from SoundCloud.
As as fan of the YSL blog, I don’t want to miss the chance and mention they have just launched their podcast. The first episode was put together by Beatsize Beats, who already established a reputation for quality mixtapes.
Ignore the buzzword, just enjoy the good music: Here’s the Lovestep mixtape from one of the Percussion Lab founders. Contains music from Joy Orbison, Floating Points, Burial, FaltyDL and so forth.
Last but not least, I stumbled across this old Maida Vale Session from Kode9 & The Spaceape. It was aired on Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide show from July 2008.
Jan 16, 2010 The Holy Ghost! mixtape is also available from the semi-secret DFA Radiomixes website
