Weekend Mixtapes #34

French ClekClekBoom put out their 36th Boomcast, featuring a guestmix from Hyperdub‘s very own Kode9 and Scratcha DVA.

Mixmag’s latest mix of the week comes from Detroit’s Rick Wade, expect an hour full of house music.

My personal favourite in this week’s selection is Linkwood‘s contribution of “random b-sides and weirdnesss” to the podcast series by their label Firecracker.

And lastly, Hyponik remind us of a producer’s name that might have slipped off your radar: Nubian Mindz

Mixtape Monday #30

As we haven’t updated you on new mixtapes lately, check out these from the last couple of days.

His previous two Lover’s Melt mixtapes still produce a lot of search queries on this site, so you might be happy to hear about the third installment in Flying Lotus‘ series.

And it’s once again one of FlyLo’s pears, London based DJ Kutmah, who has got a mix to deliver. This time he was asked by FACT Magazine to contribute to their podcast series.

Martin Clark’s Blackdown blog did a feature on Om Unit and his Cosmic Bridge label. Comes with a short interview and a mix.

Recorded at an Oslo RBMA party, listen to a live set by Four Tet.

This Linkwood mixtape has been around for a while, let’s download it!

Boiler Room co-founder Thristian aka the bPm put together TOOHOTTOLISTENTOTECHNO for the guys at oki-ni

And lastly, another one from the archives: the Hyponik podcast by Photomachine.

Weekend Mixtapes

We started the week with a Mixtape Monday, now it’s the time to think about the weekend. Here are five mixtapes to get you started.

London’s Tempo Clash collective celebrated its first anniversary about a month ago. They’ve been kind enough to record the B2B set by Kutmah and Om Unit. To get a glimpse of the vibe, stream or download the recording.

I didn’t expect Dego to allow his set recorded at the Boiler Room to go online, but that’s exactly what happened earlier this week. That’s a must have!

There used to be a new Pete Concrete mix every 6 months or so, but for his latest one he took a bit longer. His new one is called Psycho in Active and it’s as good as always.

George FitzGerald‘s releases on Hotflush and Aus Music are always worth checking out, but there aren’t that many of his mixes available. This week, he’s contributed one to the XLR8R Podcast.

And to round this up properly, check out the new iO guestmix for Hyponik. Just to make sure, iO is not to be confused with these cats!

Mixtape Monday #29

When it comes to football versus music, I guess I’ll take Dego‘s side and choose the world’s finest sport. But as I haven’t posted any mixes lately, I wanted to give you an update on those anyway.

I meant to post those Waajeed beat tapes, but as they weren’t embeddable I never did. If you haven’t heard them elsewhere by now, you can find parts one and two on his SoundCloud page.

Remember those days when Mr Beatnick played records on Ustream once a week? I really miss those! This month there’s no reason to complain, as the London-based producer did a guestmix for Hyponik and another on for i-D magazine.

As part of Dazed’s mixtape competition, here’s a rare mix from UK producer Actress.

Our friends Two Hungry Ghosts have released a tribute compilation to the drum & bass era stretching from 1992 to 1997. For a little extra promotion, they also got a special mixtape by Tim Reaper.

And as I started with two doubles, I’m gonna end this post with two “classic” techno mixes by Detroit’s Kenny Larkin. You’ll find them here and there.

Weekend Mixtapes

Following that MoMA podcast from some years back, Prefuse 73 returns to the museums with a new mixtape recorded at the American Museum of Natural History last Friday.

We gave you an Alexander Nut mix earlier this week, now here’s another one put together for the guys at Hyponik.

Waiting for a recording of Jneiro Jarel’s set at Boiler Room isn’t so bad when you get DOOM‘s set instead. That’s right, the masked rapper played there for 60 minutes last week.

This is not the first time we share one of Sotu The Traveller‘s mixes, and being huge fans we’d like to point you to his new one for fashion/design blog Ajanaku.

With his new album Lineage out on Ghostly since January, Shigeto put together a mixtape containing nothing but music from the label.

Two more uptempo mixes to finish this off. Greymatter did a mix for the Get Some podcast and Scuba played a two-hour set for Beatport.
