It’s been a while since we last selected weekend mixtapes for you, but don’t worry, we’ll continue to do so!
My favourite Hessle Show in quite some time and currently on repeat, listen to two hours of house and techno by the one and only Ben UFO.
There’s a new Afrikan Sciences album coming out on PAN in the second week of December. On the occasion he played a guestmix on the label’s radio show.
London’s Mr Beatnick released his Marshmallows EP on Tief Records the other day. On his latest radio show he was joined by Werk Discs’ Moiré to play some music.
And this last one is an older gem I rediscovered more recently, an mix by our podcast-contributor The Reboot Joy Confession.
As you might know, I’m not a huge fan of posting so-called music videos that are really just random CGI. There’s an exception to every rule, especially when I’m digging the visual aesthetics of such a video. This is true for Moiré‘s latest outing, another teaser for the producer’s upcoming album on the Actress-operated Werkdiscs label. The album is called “Shelter” and will be out on August 18, 2014. You can pre-order your copy in a format of your liking at the NinjaShop.
It’s been a good week (and month) for mixtapes, shall we start with our selection for the weekend?
Ben UFO’s and Pearson Sound’s show on Rinse FM is one of the few I make an effort to listen to on a regular basis. While I recommend tuning in every Thursday, let me highlight the show from August 8th (might go offline soon!)
To keep the uptempo vibes, check out another Boiler Room session from Nutriot Podcast contributor Gerry Read, who is about to release another of those fine 12-inches on Fourth Wave.
Following releases on Rush Hour and the Actress-operated Werkdiscs, check out Moiré‘s most excellent FACT mix from earlier this week.
Our Twitter followers might have noticed us going all crazy about the last Mr Beatnick radio show on NTS Live. He himself called it his best show all year, so make sure to take a good listen!
Los Angeles’ Julia Holter released her debut on Domino Records this week. On that occasion, she was asked to put to a very special mix called People Dreaming In Church.
And lastly, don’t sleep on Alexander Nut‘s show from last Saturday (PS: he’ll be live in about an hour or 12.00 GMT)
Another Werkdiscs release to look forward to is the forthcoming debut EP from London-based Moiré. Titled Never Sleep, the four tracker features vocalist Heidi Vogel and comes with a remix from Actress. You can pre-order your copy on the Ninja Tune store or watch this self-made video experiment.
