Mixtape Monday #13

It’s been a while since the last Mixtape Monday, so apart from featuring some of last week’s mixes, I will sneak in a couple of older ones.

Some weeks back, Gilles Peterson did a Drum & Bass Special on his weekly radio show. I never imagined I’d (still) feature that music on this blog, but when it comes to the late nineties I’m all set for that. If you missed the show, you can now download both hours from SoundCloud. Especially the first part is much recommended!

Also from Gilles Peterson is the podcast to promote the forthcoming Havana Cultura Remixed compilation.

Next up are a couple of house mixtapes for you. Aardvarck dug out some records from the 1988-1993 period and made this mix for New Worck. Philpot Records head Soulphiction made a contribution to the Bodytonic Podcast series, and from Mark E comes a new guest-mix for Warm.

Enrico Crivellaro, better known as Volcov or Isoul8, put together one, two, three mixes for Sunday afternoons. Expect folk, jazz and Brazilian music.

My favourite mix in this week’s selection probably comes from Austrian producer Daeque, whose mix ranges from Dimlite to David Axelrod, Wilco to Shafiq Husayn.

And now for you beatheadz: Big Up magazine has a bunch of post-RBMA mixes from the likes of Kid Kanevil, DZA, Swede:art, Tokimonsta, Daisuke Tanabe, 00Genesis and some others!

The latest episodes of Mamiko’s Hepcat Radio are also online, download or stream the shows with Seiji and Hudson Mohawke.

And lastly, I’d like to mention A Tribute to Matthew Herbert mix, which I’ve found on the Brownswood forum.

Bodytonic Podcast by Kirk Degiorgio

Kirk Degiorgio is one of those artists whose music had a huge impact on me around the change of the millennium. He has put out music under the names of As One, Off-World Ensemble (and Offworld) and together with Ian O’Brien, Jinadu and others, he forms The Beauty Room. Apart from these involvements (and many others), he has relaunched his ART label in late 2009.

For the latest Bodytonic podcast, Kirk has put together nearly two hours of music, a selection he calls his Winter Mix.

Carl Craig Mixtapes

As Carl Craig’s Planet E label has finally landed on SoundCloud, there are some older mixtapes for you to listen to. My favourite is this Paperclip People live-set from 1998, recorded at San Francisco’s Fever. Also available is this mix for the Compost Radio Show, in which Carl plays some older music that inspired him. Unfortunately, these mixes are not officially available for download and can only be listened to through the SoundCloud page.

Just today, Bodytonic has put out their latest podcast and of course it comes from no other than Carl Craig! It features the likes of Donald Byrd, Tribe, Detroit Experiment, Alice Coltrane or Bill Laswell – actually Carl announces the tracks he is playing!

While I’m at it, here are two more for you: The first was recorded for RBMA Radio in Istanbul, the second is a recording from Springsix festival.

Update Apparently, there are other sources to the mentioned Paperclip People show

Dec 2, 2009 Let me add a sixth mix to the selection, recorded at TV Bar in Detroit
