Weekly Bits 12/2009

We’ve already been blessed with quite some mixtapes this week, but there are some more to follow in this post.

What is good music? This website of the same name compiled tracks from Daz-I-Kue, Rich Medina, Mark de Clive-Lowe, Peven Everett, Erik Rico, King Britt and many others on their Spring Sampler 2009. What makes this one special is that it allows  you  not only to listen to the tracks online, but also to download all of them for free in MP3 format.

My favourite podcast this week came from Robotronic Radio. The show is called The Depot and in their eighth edition they not only feature Dorian Concept (including an interview), but also play a nice selection of electronic music from wonky hip hop to dubstep.

Which brings me to the more prominent Deviation show on BBC Radio 1, which also featured Dorian Concept. Benji talks with Dorian about his album When Planets Explode, his live performances and future plans. You can listen to that on the BBC iPlayer for the next couple of days or with some luck you can find a download of the show.

I know there are quite some Parra fans out there. For owners of an iPhone, there’s a free app called Parra Plays. That’s a collection of three casual games (including Memorize and a Simon clone) featuring Parra‘s artwork.

From Ben Westbeech comes this house mixtape, which he has posted via Twitter.  So did Alex Phountzi of Bugz in the Attic with the Greenmoney Showcase, a mix that’s  more on the broken tip.
