Citinite 2003-2016

Most people will probably know Manuel Sepulveda for his work as Optigram, the name under which he designed pretty much every record sleeve put out by Hyperdub. That body of work clearly overshadowed his other operations, including co-founding and running the Citinite label for more than a decade. Today marks the 10th anniversary of their first release and yet it’s a sad day, since they decided to pull the plug and call it “goodnite”.

There’s a new website that let’s you revisit (or discover)twenty releases from the last decade, not all of them actually realised. Some of the unreleased music can be listened to on this special mixtape.

Jimmy Edgar – Hot Raw Sex (Complexxion remix)
Jesse Saunders – On & On (unreleased 1984 remix)
Lil’ Kenny – Straight to Your Head
Mynk Rychardz – Human Robots (Gosubs night dub)
Lil’ Kenny – Cyberlove
Robert O’Dell – Love Me… Can You Hear Me?
Gosub – Slave to You
Robert O’Dell – Miles & Miles
Gosub – Black Nova (AUX 88 remix)
Mynk Rychardz – Blastin
Complexxion – Intro 7
JLin – 808
JLin – Downtown
Rozzi Daime – Dirty Illusions
Mynk Rychardz – Hang Glyde

And if that ain’t enough, make sure to check Manuel’s radio show from last year, in which he played some more lost music from the label.

Farewell, Citinite. You will be missed!

Mixtape Monday #5

The Brainfeeder label always guarantees a great selection of music, their latest mixtape is called Brain Food and was put together by Alex B. If you like that I can already tell you want the FACT Podcast by Débruit as well.

Joscha Creutzfeld of UpMyAlley posted a mixtape made for RBMA Radio in 2007 on SoundCloud titled Lost and Found. This should make the waiting for the follow-up to his more recent Brrappness Mix a bit easier.

A very cool mix comes from Computer Jay, that is if you grew up in the eighties and you miss the sounds of your Atari 2600.

Citinite and LuckyMe are joining forces for a very special event in November, featuring Dâm-Funk, Rustie and Jimmy Edgar. To get you in the mood for that, check the mixtape they put together for The Fader.

House producer Mark E not only has a very beautiful looking website, you might also want to check out the mixes he has posted there, including the all new Merc Mix #1.

Lastly, here’s an older mix from Detroit legend Juan Atkins, which was recorded at the 12th anniversary party of Berlin’s equally legendary Tresor.
