Mixtape Monday #32

Just a quick fix of mixtapes I enjoyed over the last couple of weeks.

Following Prefuse73’s XLR8R podcast, he and his Sons of the Morning-partner Teebs put together another one for Self-Titled magazine.

When I’m not listening to the Hessle Audio radio show on Rinse.fm, I’m more than happy to track down other mixes by Ben UFO and company. The Essential Mix is still a big deal and—annoying as Pete Tong’s flat introductions are—you might want to grab this new one featuring Ben.

Safe House USA added the fourth edition of their Stay the Night series and it’s been nicely put together by Night Slug’s Girl Unit. Meanwhile, Fantastic Mr Fox did that for oki-ni.

If you heard that new track by Burial and Four Tet, you might want to download the Rinse show were the rip is taken from.

With all the hype about yet-another Grand Theft Auto, I’m sure you listened to Flylo FM already. Otherwise, here you go!

And lastly, I’d like to sneak my revised version of last year’s Colectivo Futuro podcast. Music for autumn!

Burial + Four Tet – Nova

Three years after Moth/Wolf Club and a much hyped 12-inch with Thom Yorke, here’s a new collaboration between Four Tet and Burial.

And that’s all there is to say at this moment, no info whether or when this will be out. The stats are quite impressive though, uploaded 6 hours ago and it already broke the 42,000 plays mark.

Burial – Fostercare (Simbad Remix)

The original version of Burial‘s “Fostercare” came out about a year ago on Hyperdub‘s compilation for their fifth anniversary. London’s Simbad has retouched the track in a way that keeps the original’s overall mood, yet it’s different.

You have probably heard it on his SoundCloud page before, but due to popular demand he’s now giving it away as free download. So get it while you can.

Mixtape Monday #17

With Rednose Distrikt and Lukid we had some pretty strong mixtapes last week, not to mention the all new podcast. But time doesn’t stand still, so here’s the latest edition of Mixtape Mondays.

As you know, Mary Anne Hobbs‘ final show was broadcasted last Wednesday. Her guests on the show were Kode9 and Burial, their mixtape is available on Percussion Lab (full show here.)

Fact Magazine continues to put out quality mixes. Following the Four Tet podcast, they put up new ones by Baths and Zed Bias.

The international Worldwide show (as opposed to the UK show) had a guestmix by LA beatmistress Tokimonsta, you can grab the full show from Core News.

More music from Los Angeles comes on the new Low End Theory podcast, with mixes by Daddy Kev and (once again) Baths.

In the past, XLR8R presented a variety of UK based dubstep DJs, but for their latest podcast they had stateside duo Sepalcure.

British blog Allez Allez has a guestmix from Jimmy Edgar, recorded live at Berlin’s Berghain club. And while we’re at it, let me also mention their excellent Caribou mixtape from a while back!

Lastly, I want to mention some classic Brazilian music by the way of HVW8 and Red Rackem‘s guestmix for the OFFtrack radio show.

Weekly Bits 42/2009

Earlier this week, the participants of the Red Bull Music Academy 2010 were chosen. Among the lucky winners is L.A.’s incredibly talented Jennifer Lee, better known as TOKiMONSTA. In order to celebrate, Brainfeeder is giving away one of her tracks, another new remix can be found on Jenn’s SoundCloud page.

More news from Brainfeeder made the round this week, label founder Flying Lotus is supposed to do a collaboration with UK’s Burial. I remember quite some Burial related announcements from the past that never took off, but in this case there’s even something to listen to.

The success story of Mayer Hawthorne goes on, this time the Rolling Stone magazine is giving him a feature. At the same time, Mayer has released his new single Green Eyed Love with remixes from Waajeed and Classixx, a new video is also available.

I’ve seen quite some superlatives for the 50th anniversary of Kind of Blue, but Columbia Records takes the cake with its latest Miles Davis box set.  On November 24th, they release The Complete Columbia Album Collection on 70 CDs and one DVD. It will be exclusively available on Amazon.

Legendary disc jockey Greg Wilson finally got himself an account on SoundCloud and gives away a bunch of edits and mash-ups.

The nice people of Warm are talking to New York DJ and radio-host  Tim Sweeney, who is looking back at ten years of running Beats In Space and will soon launch a label by the same name.

In other news, you might also want to check out this skateboard by Jeff Mill’s Axis Records, a new video by Lefto featuring Dorian Concept and Lukid, or the latest podcast from MUTEK mixed by French re-edit master Pilooski.
