Weekend Mixtapes #42

Recorded live a London’s Plastic People in late January, listen to the second installment of Floating Points’ You’re A Melody mix.

Having impressed us with his debut album released last year, we keep following the doings of Huerco S whenever we can. This week, we came across this 2 hour long mix for Berlin Community Radio.

Next up here are two mixes from the Young Turks label. First it’s the Jamie xx mix for BBC 6music aired in Decemember, then the label’s FBI Radio take-over featuring Four Tet, Earl Sweatshirt, Domo Genesis and once again Jamie xx.

UK techno legend Kirk Degiorgio shared a DJ mix recorded at Amsterdam’s TROUW for the Midnight Shift podcast.

Let’s not forget about those Valentine’s Day specials: Hudson Mohawke continues his annual Slow Jams series, while Peanut Butter Wolf goes over the top with a 24 hour long mix for the FACT podcast.

And lastly, one from the archives. Hessle Audio’s Ben UFO mentioned this on the latest radio show, don’t sleep on this podcast for weareie recorded in 2007!

Update Let’s not forget about the latest Hyperdub show on Rinse.fm (direct link), hosted by label-boss Kode9 himself

Tycho x Three 6 Mafia – Who Run It (Hudson Mohawke Edit)

For me listening to Hudson Mohawke is still synonymous with listening to Hudon’s Heeters Vol. 1 or Polyfolk Dance, but I’m glad I stumbled across this semi-cheesy edits the Scottish producer released to celebrate 100k likes on his Facebook page. The edits of Tycho‘s The Disconnect and the Hell Interface track are worth checking out. Grab the whole package before it’s taken down!

Weekend Mixtapes

Good morning, this is your weekend speaking and this is what you will be listening to (apart from this!)

I could’ve sworn there had been a Four Tet mix on Solid Steel earlier this year, but apparently it’s his first guestmix since 2001. Don’t miss!

With the Olympics over, London’s Kelpe went all sporty and came up with this table tennis inspired mix for oki-ni.

With his much anticipated debut album finally out on LuckyMe, Vienna’s Cid Rim sat down with Urb Magazine to do a little interview and guestmix.

Due to our holidays, we missed the Untold podcast for Resident Advisor – and who would want to miss that?

And lastly, Hudson Mohawke and Lunice are sharing the uncensored version of their recent Essential Mix.

Update If you’ve enjoyed our latest podcast by Huess, let me point out there are two more available at Dipped in Dollars and You’ll Soon Know.

TNGHT – Bugg’n

A week after the release of Hudson Mohawke and Lunice‘s new TNGHT EP on Warp, here’s an official video directed by Dominic Flannigan & Peter Marsden.

Out now on Bleep, iTunes and everywhere else.

Weekend Mixtapes

Wax Poetics celebrates its ten-year anniversary with their 50th issue, also known as the Prince Issue. And since there’s probably nobody on this planet who knows his funk better than LA’s Dâm-Funk, he was asked to together a special Prince Mixtape.

The Hudson Mohawke Valentine’s Day mixes have become sort of a tradition. No difference this year, you can download the fifth edition on LuckyMe.

And here’s another Valentine’s mix, this time put together by Los Angeles beat scientiest Shlohmo.

One of the highlights this week must have been Julia Holter‘s contribution to the FACT Mix series. Not an everyday mixtape!

Next up a triplet of house mixes: BNJMN promotes his DJ set at Italy’s SRSLY, Pinch has become Another Dubstep DJ playing House Music, and the Innervisions guys shared Dixon‘s recent set at Boiler Room.

And lastly, here are some oldskool vibes from Doc Scott and MC Conrad, recorded 1996 in Berlin.

Mixtape Monday #19

We already mentioned mixes from Legowelt, Ahu, 8bitch and Black & Blue in yesterday’s weekly bits, today we already got some more to share.

It’s Valentine’s Day and like every year, Hudson Mohawke has put together a special tape for the occasion. Another mix for lovers comes from Krystal Klear, titled Everything is Shit….Except You Love.

With Swim, Canada’s Caribou delivered an album that found itself in many best-of lists by the end of last year. For Resident Advisor, main man Dan Snaith made a contribution to their podcast series.

Earlier this month, Toro Y Moi delivered a mix for FACT Magazine and it’s been a personal favourite of mine over the weekend. Watch out for the new album coming out later this month!

More mixes come from New York based Brendon Moeller, who made a mix for Field Records. Lone has recorded a stream-only mix to promote his show at this year’s Bloc Weekend.

And lastly, we’re revisiting Silkie‘s mix for RBMA Radio, originally aired in 2009.

Update This one just came in, it’s Bullion’s guestmix for Benji B‘s show last week.

Warp20 NYC

Warp20 NYC took place over a year ago and you’ve probably seen this video elsewhere. However, only recently director Lorenzo Fonda uploaded this to his Vimeo page.

In this full documentary on the event, he filmed and interviewed involved artists Flying Lotus, Jamie Lidell, !!!, Hudson Mohawke, Clark, PVT and others. Click on the names to watch the individual parts only.

Hudson Mohawke x DZA – re/FUSE

As you might know, Russian beatmaker DZA and Hudson Mohawke spent some time together in studio at this year’s RBMA. A previous collaboration was available on SoundCloud before, now you can listen to a remix off Hudson’s Butter album.

For more new music by DZA, check the Fly Russia compilation. It’s new and it’s free!

Mixtape Monday #14

Kindred Spirits sublabel Nod Navigators, home to Mwëslee, Aardvark or Dorian Concept, will release The Blessings‘ debut EP by the end of the month (maybe early August.) In the meantime you can warm up with the podcast they’ve recorded recently.

Russian blog Gimme5 presents a mix by Miracle Libido, a member of the how2make family. Available for download and stream over here.

Hudson Mohawke‘s mix from this year’s Sonar is available from Numbers, there you’ll also find a set by L-Vis 1990.

Rinse FM regular DJ and Eglo Records boss Alexander Nut has put together a mix for Resident Advisor, who voted the home of Floating Points and Funkineven their label of the month.

The guys of Soulparlor have done an exclusive mix for RBMA Radio, filled with lots of unreleased music. Stream only.

Not that many mixes this time, let’s see what the guys at Mixcloud recommend!

Hudson Mohawke – Snap Dragon

All you need to download this track is an account on the Bleep store. The track will be available for one week only!

Hudson will play Sonar by Night this Friday, tickets for the night are still available.

Mixtape Monday #13

It’s been a while since the last Mixtape Monday, so apart from featuring some of last week’s mixes, I will sneak in a couple of older ones.

Some weeks back, Gilles Peterson did a Drum & Bass Special on his weekly radio show. I never imagined I’d (still) feature that music on this blog, but when it comes to the late nineties I’m all set for that. If you missed the show, you can now download both hours from SoundCloud. Especially the first part is much recommended!

Also from Gilles Peterson is the podcast to promote the forthcoming Havana Cultura Remixed compilation.

Next up are a couple of house mixtapes for you. Aardvarck dug out some records from the 1988-1993 period and made this mix for New Worck. Philpot Records head Soulphiction made a contribution to the Bodytonic Podcast series, and from Mark E comes a new guest-mix for Warm.

Enrico Crivellaro, better known as Volcov or Isoul8, put together one, two, three mixes for Sunday afternoons. Expect folk, jazz and Brazilian music.

My favourite mix in this week’s selection probably comes from Austrian producer Daeque, whose mix ranges from Dimlite to David Axelrod, Wilco to Shafiq Husayn.

And now for you beatheadz: Big Up magazine has a bunch of post-RBMA mixes from the likes of Kid Kanevil, DZA, Swede:art, Tokimonsta, Daisuke Tanabe, 00Genesis and some others!

The latest episodes of Mamiko’s Hepcat Radio are also online, download or stream the shows with Seiji and Hudson Mohawke.

And lastly, I’d like to mention A Tribute to Matthew Herbert mix, which I’ve found on the Brownswood forum.

Hudson Mohawke’s Ras Kwame Mix

Hudson Mohawke – Joy Fantastic

In order to promote the upcoming Pegasus Rising tour from Hudson Mohawke, Warp Records just posted this music video for the song “Joy Fantastic” with Olivier Daysoul on vocals.

The video was directed by Konx-Om-Pax, who was already responsible for the artwork of Butter.

It's Tunesday (again!)

Announcing Hudson Mohawke‘s upcoming tour through the United Kingdom, his label Warp has posted this bootleg remix of Jodeci. You can download it from the Warp website, where you will also find the tour dates.

Following Pixelord’s Lucid Freaks EP, a set of remixes are already in the queue. A first taster comes from Dutch beatmaker Coco Bryce, who remixed the track Quartz Boy.

The new Daedelus album Righteous Fists of Harmony is just around the corner, reason enough for XLR8R to give you a first preview.

And the last free download comes from FACT Magazine, who are hosting a new track from Krystal Klear for the next seven days only!

Not for download, but definitely worth checking out are the Om Unit remix for Colonel Red, Illum Sphere’s Titan (did you check Super Charged?) and the last couple of uploads from Lukid (as long as they’re online!)

Weekly Bits 7/2010

If you like the music featured on this blog and you’ve been out in London, you know Plastic People as the first address for underground music. Be it the FWD parties, Tony Nwachukwu’s CDR events or IG Culture’s CoOp club, they all take (or in the latter case took) place at the same address in Shoreditch. It now seems Plastic People’s license is currently reviewed by the London Police, threatened to close its doors forever. To stay updated on the events and to learn how you can help, join this group on Facebook.

This is what happens, when you try to ignore Valentine’s Days and any related links passed to you on Twitter: I completely overlooked Hudson Mohawke‘s slow jams mix for LuckyMe.

Stumbled across a couple of interviews this week. No Depression’s Jay Hayes had the rare opportunity to sit down and have a chat with Betty Davis. The Okayplayer forum collected questions for Dego of 4hero and 2000Black fame, you can read it on his blog. While we’re at 4hero, let me also mention Knowledge Mag’s Week In The Life of 4hero with Marc Mac.

Lots of videos from the London Red Bull Music Academy are there to discover on their YouTube page. One of the highlights is the concert of Henrik Schwarz & Bugge Wesseltoft at the Royal Festival Hall.

The all new Armchair Dancefloor mix features a guest-spot from Blue Daisy, one of the names to look out for in this year.

Another free download is taken from the highly recommended Mind Over Matter Remixes from Greymatter. You can grab the TRG Remix of “Believe In Something” from his SoundCloud page.

And lastly, I read this article on FACT Magazine with great interest: Basic Channel‘s Mark Ernestus is about to launch a new label called Dug Out, specialized in reissues of classic reggae records.
