Beats in Space with Ben UFO & Joy Orbison

Look at that, we haven’t posted any mixes since July? Admittedly, I haven’t had much time for that, especially since my radio-show of choice —the Hessle Audio show on Rinse— has taken that spot. So I guess it’s kind of fitting that the mix comes from Ben UFO, one third of the label and regular on the show. Together with Joy Orbison he has taken over the airwaves of New York’s Beats in Space show. And if you’re digging the show, make sure to check out those recent Joy Orbison b2b Ben UFO mixes as well!

Joy Orbison – Donell

Here’s a track you might remember from Joy Orbison’s Resident Advisor mix in October 2012, it’s his remix (or edit?) of Donell Jones’ U Know What’s Up. You can download the track for free for the time being, but due to the unclear legal situation you might have to be quick before it’s gone!

Mixtape Monday #31

Haven’t done these in a while, but this week there are enough mixes worth a mention. Shall we start?

One-Handed‘s Dedication series is one of the more exciting podcasts, each episode being dedicated to just one artist. This time it’s Mr Beatnick who shares his love for Sun Ra on his eclectic mix (he wrote about him before!)

Next up is something I’ve mentioned before in a side-note, the second podcast by the Tempoclash crew. And it’s a special one as Danny Breaks doesn’t do many mixes these days.

There are many varieties of house music, here are four mixes representing four different styles: Joy Orbison for Resident Advisor, Recondite’s mix for Hush House, a new Linkwood podcast, and some deepness from Sven Weisemann.

LuckyMe‘s Dominic Flannigan and Claude Speeed provided the soundtrack for the The Goodhood Store‘s fifth anniversary, 100 minutes of ambient music.

If you always wanted to download Kelpe‘s Ping mix for oki-ni, you can now do so for a limited time!

Mixtape Monday #27

Good mixtapes have been scarce and while I’m not aware of too many, here are a few I’d like to share with you.

To celebrate the launch of the Hinge Finger label, Joy Orbison did a little mix that you can stream here or download there.

You might have heard about DJ Spinna’s The Best of MdCL mix by now, but there are some more Mark de Clive-Lowe related items. For once the Los Angeles based producer was invited to play at Low End Theory, and then there’s a new mixtape to promote his own night called Church.

Ahead of the TIEF new year’s party, Greymatter has done a mix for them. And you better be quick on that one, as they usually vanish after a few weeks.

If you’re looking for something more quiet, check out this one put together by Jon Hopkins.

For those remembering Sven Swift’s jazz mix from a while back, check out his latest for Find Magazine.

And as a little bonus, here’s a free download of AD Bourke‘s beat tape released back in 2008 on Domu’s TrebleO label.

December 20, 2011 Let me throw in two more mixes: Beat Dimension’s Danny Corn X ASG and another by Julien Dyne!

Weekend Mixtapes

The weekend is nigh, so here’s another collection of mixtapes to get you in the mood for the weekend.

Following their massive album Resurrection, Chicago house veterans Virgo Four are this weeks contributor to XLR8R’s podcast series.

More house music comes by the the way of Mark E, who recently release an album on Ghostly. His mix is part of the label’s own podcast series.

We’ve been sporting Pete Concrete‘s mixtapes whenever there was a new one, so why make a difference? His latest is an exclusive for Dublab.

Fellow blogger Tim of You’ll Soon Know invited S. Maharba as guest for his latest radioshow. As with all shows on NTS Radio, you can download this one for repeated listening.

The latest Hessle Audio show on Rinse FM brought together the talents of Joy Orbison, Pearson Sound, Ben UFO and Floating Points. If you missed the show, you can now grab the podcast.

Pearson Sound also played at London’s Boiler Room the other week and as usual you can download the DJ set or watch videos from the party. And while you’re at it, also check out the mixes from Karizma and Cooly G.

AFTA-1‘s guestmix for Onur Engin’s Monotape must have been around for a while, but I only came across this via We’ve Got The Jazz.

Lastly, I have to mention this mix from Raffertie, who’s playing a fantastic selection of UK bass music on Inverted Audio‘s latest podcast.

Joy Orbison – The Shrew Would Have Cushioned The Blow EP

The latest single from Joy Orbison is probably the best new thing he has done since the much acclaimed debut release Hyph Mngo. Released by AUS Music, the Shrew EP contains two new tracks and a remix from Actress, the founder of Werk Discs.A1. The Shrew Would Have Cushioned The Blow
A2. So Derobe
B1. The Shrew Would Have Cushioned The Blow (Actress’ Neu Haus So-Glo mix)

It’s now available from all good record stores, I spotted it on Boomkat and Juno. You can also get a digital release, which is only available directly from the label or from Beatport.

Mixtapes, Mon Dieu!

With so many mixtapes to share, there’s no way I’m letting you wait until next Monday. Here’s some of the stuff I came across.

As the long-awaited debut album Butter from Hudson Mohawke came out this week, The Fader arranged not only to get him for an interview, Hudson also made the mixtape.

Another new album comes from Dâm-Funk, who blessed this week’s Deviation show with an exclusive, two-hour set. He also put together a mix for Clae Amusement, playing music by Kaidi Tatham, Mr. Fingers and Nite Jewel (via Crazybirds).

Nosaj Thing is still touring through Europe, Percussion Lab has one of his sets – it’s almost a year old, but sounds fresh enough to be heard again.

Two very dubby sets come from Brendon Moeller and Ike Release. The former was playing at this year’s MUTEK_10 and his set is now available for download. Ike’s studio mix was exclusively recorded for the great Sonic Router blog. You can download it here.

Not a download, but a mix worth a stream comes from Greenmoney Radio, who had Joy Orbison in to do a guestmix.

Lastly, 4hero’s Marc Mac posted a new podcast featuring unreleased outtakes and some rare remixes. Don’t forget, they’ve got a new album called Extensions in stores!

As second album from José James has been delayed for a release in early 2010, fans of the New York jazz-singer will be delighted to hear that his new single Blackmagic (Remixes) will come out on November 1st. The original version of Blackmagic is the second co-production with L.A.’s Flying Lotus, following a track from last year.

For the remixes, Brownswood picked some more heavy-weight artists, including the much talked about Joy Orbison, Untold and Izmabad.01. Blackmagic (Joy Orbison’s Recreation)
02. Blackmagic (Untold remix)
03. Blackmagic (Izmabad 118 remix)
04. Blackmagic (Dop remix)
You might have been among the lucky ones, that got the Untold remix from FACT’s limited give-away. The Izmabad version is still available for streaming on the Kspace site.

Juno already has the digital release available for pre-order, the 12-inch should follow soon.

And then there’s this promo video from Kswiss. Don’t ask me for its purpose, I just know it existed on YouTube for a while already and it looks quite nice.

Nov 30, 2009 From Simbad comes another remix of the track, which you can download here

Mixtape Monday #4

I already mentioned the Embers Mix from Floating Points in the weekly bits, but just in case you missed it..

Out of the Los Angeles based Brainfeeder collective, comes TOKiMONSTA with a very nice mixtape she recorded for my man Lefto. Make sure not to sleep on her tracks, she’s among the most talented uprising producers in the world right now!

From earlier this year is a mixtape by Innervision‘s Dixon. The mix was a giveaway for Berlin’s montly Innercity club. 70 minutes of good new house music.

More musical hotness from Berlin comes from Modeselektor. For Resident Advisor’s podcast series, the DJs and producers have put together a sweet dubstep set, proving once more the boys open mindedness towards anything out there. I might add, that I prefer the podcast much over their new Body Language mix CD.

Mary Anne Hobbs had Joy Orbison among her guests in her latest radioshow. That’s something for your iPod I believe.

I have posted this last one on Twitter some weeks back, one of my favourite podcast JJ Smoking Sessions has put together another great episode that’s all about Prince. No excuses.
