Almost three months since we last put together a selection of Weekend Mixtapes, what’s going on? To be honest, I wasn’t that thrilled by a lot of mixes. Maybe there are too many, maybe it’s an age thing. Anyway, here is a bunch I’ve been feeling lately.
Let’s start with the oldest and that has more to do with the fact that it comes from one of my favourite producers: Bristol’s Joe. A couple of weeks back he played some records for the Sonic Router podcast and it’s maybe not what you’d expect from him. Recommended download!
Next up we’re talking about a brand-new mixtape by FaltyDL, who just released his new album Hardcourage this week. Tune into his mixtape for Self-titled and read an interview with the man.
The guys of GiveUpArt dug out an old recording made in 2006 at London’s FWD club. Proper selection of dubstep (when it still deserved the name) from Appleblim b2b Headhunter.
And to be honest, this is where I’d like to stop already. Unless you want to hear some Kirk Degiorgio, Tom Trago, Juan Maclean, Ben UFO or Medlar – your decision!
As the weekend is about to kick off, the internet has a very special selection of mixtapes this week. Let’s have a look at them.
With his much anticipated third album Nebula Dance finally in stores, Brighton’s Ital Tek is about to tour the U.S. in the coming weeks. He also did a mixtape for Self-titled Mag and picked his 10 favourite footwork tracks for Dummy.
Another album to look out for is Kid Kanevil and Daisuke Tanabe’s Kidsuke, which will be out on November 2nd. In the meantime, check out their mixtape for Finest Ego’s Monthly Mix.
Next up, we got a triplet of uptempo mixes: London’s xxxy got to play a show on Russian radio Follow Me Studio, Scuba showcases lots of new Hotflush material on his mix for FACT Magazine, and you can stream Objekt‘s 2-hour mix from this year’s Dimension Festival.
Boiler Room invited Berlin’s Dixon & Âme to play at their ADE party the other day, that’s 4 hours in the mix!
Hyperdub’s first lady Ikonika did a guestmix for Rob Booth’s Electronic Explorations and she included a previously unheard remix of hers.
Legendary Philadelphia DJ and producer King Britt was approached by the Pew Center for Arts and Heritage “to curate a show on Afrofuturism and its influences on me and my compositional work.”
Hot on the heels of his new single on Brainfeeder, London’s Lapalux stopped by at Los Angeles’ KCRW to do a mini mix.
The oldie of the week comes from Jneiro Jarel, who posted his Houston We Have A Solution Mix made in 2005 (careful, it’s a Facebook link!)
And lastly, let us remind you we had two new mixes out ourselves: Lokiboi contributed to our own podcast series, and Tetsuo did a mix for Colectivo Futuro.
With their much anticipated debut album out since Monday, it was only the question of who would get a mixtape by New York duo Sepalcure. Travis and Praveen went with selt-titled, with whom they also had a little chat.
As always, I suggest you get the download, tune in and read what Sepalcure have to say in this interview.
Their self-titled album is available now, you can pick copies on CD, LP and digital directly from the Hotflush Store – or the record dealer of your choice.
