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!

Weekly Bits 20/2013

Twenty weeks into the year and here comes the first edition of our weekly bits and we only noticed how we missed them.

Two years before the Sex Pistols formed, a year before The Ramones got together, three brothers from Detroit formed Death, arguably one of the first punk bands in the world. There is an interesting looking documentary coming to movie theaters (and iTunes) that you might want to check out!

Read an interview with Jeff Jank, creative directory for Stones Throw and illustrator behind the Quasimoto character.

Hard Wax is Berlin’s legendary record store founded in 1989 by Moritz von Oswald and Mark Ernestus, the duo also known for their work as Basic Channel and Rhythm & Sound. This interview tells about the early days of Hard Wax.

Domino Records reissued Four Tet’s 2003 album Rounds with a live bonus disc. Out now!

The music video for Kendrick Lamar’s seminal Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe premiered earlier this week, time to revisit the Dr. Dre-produced, Boomclap Bachelors-sampling hit single.

Next up we got two mixtapes worth checking out. The first one comes from Gerry Read ahead of his DJ set at London’s Fabric club, the second from Night Slug’s Girl Unit.

And lastly – it is finally out!
