Weekend Mixtapes #53

Houndstooth released Arpo, the new Call Super album only a couple of weeks ago, a great occasion to return to the Hessle Audio show for another guestmix. But that’s no all, the young producer also did an interview with Truancy and recorded a mix for them.

Another favourite album of the last couple of month has been Jonti‘s long awaited third album Tokorats. Make sure to check out his new mix for Solid Steel as well!

One of my favourite feature on Rinse FM has been their label show-cases which have been going on for a while. Last week the radio station hosted a takeover by Amsterdam-based label (and record-store) Rush Hour with mixes by Aardvarck, Interstellar Funk, Awanto 3, and many more.

Weekend Mixtapes #46

Whenever summer approaches, I reach for my dub records more often for an appropriate soundtrack to the pressing heat. And since it’s not far from there to dub techno, here’s a my favourite mixtape of the month. Berlin-based production duo youANDme, who put together a two hour mixtape full of deep and dubby sounds for the Inverted Audio podcast.

More uptempo sounds can be heard on the latest XLR8R Podcast, selected and mixed by Apron Records-founder Funkineven. Since I missed it before, let me also throw in their previous podcast by Call Super.

I don’t know why I was so surprised, but I’ve really become fond of the new Prins Thomas album (listen on Spotify). Give it a try, if you haven’t! The Norwegian DJ and producer dropped by the Beats in Space to play records for more than an hour.

Listen to a recording of Andrés, who played for more than four hour last May in Cologne’s Roxy club.

We’ll end this selection with a couple of radio shows: Matthewdavid’s latest Mindflight Meditations episode features special guest Mndsgn, while Carlos Niño’s Spaceways Radio has new age musician Iasos. Listen to new music from Dego, Four Tet and Dorian Concept on the latest Benji B show.
