It hasn’t been for the first time that Kieran Hebden graced the Boiler Room with his music, but this latest video shows him playing one of his rare Four Tet live-shows. Listen to music from his last couple of releases, going as far back as his 2010 album There Is Love In You to my all-time favourite Beautiful Rewind, finishing off with the majestic Morning. Visuals provided by Squidsoup.
Turn up the music, switch into fullscreen, sit back and enjoy!
As you might have noticed, I’m rather busy with other things than blogging lately. But it’s always worth taking the time when there’s some Dorian Concept related news, don’t you agree? It’s still a month to go until his new album Joined Ends drops on Ninja Tune, but the Vienna-based producer couldn’t help it but play a couple of new tunes at yesterday’s Boiler Room event in his hometown. He also brought some friends, namely his fellow Affine family consisting of Cid Rim & The Clonious, Sixtus Preiss et al.
I’m not gonna let you wait until the Friday for another edition of Weekend Mixtapes, for I’ve got a couple of mixes to share with you right now!
Let’s start with the oldest in the bunch, a nice selection of Brazilian tunes put together by Floating Points. To get you in the mood for the next Brazil game or simply to have a good time. Leave a shout on Sam’s SoundCloud page if you like this!
Next up, listen to music from the private collection of Now-Again founder and Stones Throw associate Egon. Also available as video via Boiler Room LA.
Berlin Community Radio is continuously putting out quality mixes from some of my favourite artists. Most recently, they had Hyperdub-signed Laurel Halo in their studio, playing a wide selection from jazz and folk to dub techno.
Listen to a Kode9 set recorded at London’s Fabric the other day, playing what sounds like mostly records from his label Hyperdub. He also shared his Maida Vale session with Spaceape from a couple of years back.
While I’ve never met LD in real life, I’ve know him since the early days of the Brownswood Forum. His Spacebass show once started as a podcast before making the jump to London’s NTS Live. Enjoyed this one a lot when it was broadcasted the other day!
I’ll leave you for tonight with a mixtape by London’s very own Mr Beatnick, who played some records for the folks at the Boiler Room x Sounds of the Universe event back in November 2013.

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.
Not exactly a mixtape, but a teaser to the upcoming Yatha Bhuta Jazz Combo album, a collaboration between Onra and Buddy Sativa.
And to finish off this week’s selection, here’s a true diamond: check out this massive Rhythm & Sound DJ-set recorded in Detroit back in 2006 (and don’t let those Windows sounds drive you crazy, unfortunately they’re part of the recording!)
We haven’t posted a mixtape in a while and neither have we heard much from SBTRKT either. Luckily, the recent Young Turks special at London’s Boiler Room brought the two together and you can listen/download below (or watch on YouTube.)

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.
