Look at that, we haven’t posted any mixes since July? Admittedly, I haven’t had much time for that, especially since my radio-show of choice —the Hessle Audio show on Rinse— has taken that spot. So I guess it’s kind of fitting that the mix comes from Ben UFO, one third of the label and regular on the show. Together with Joy Orbison he has taken over the airwaves of New York’s Beats in Space show. And if you’re digging the show, make sure to check out those recent Joy Orbison b2b Ben UFO mixes as well!
Here’s a track you might remember from Joy Orbison’s Resident Advisor mix in October 2012, it’s his remix (or edit?) of Donell Jones’ U Know What’s Up. You can download the track for free for the time being, but due to the unclear legal situation you might have to be quick before it’s gone!
Haven’t done these in a while, but this week there are enough mixes worth a mention. Shall we start?
One-Handed‘s Dedication series is one of the more exciting podcasts, each episode being dedicated to just one artist. This time it’s Mr Beatnick who shares his love for Sun Ra on his eclectic mix (he wrote about him before!)
Next up is something I’ve mentioned before in a side-note, the second podcast by the Tempoclash crew. And it’s a special one as Danny Breaks doesn’t do many mixes these days.
You might have heard about DJ Spinna’s The Best of MdCL mix by now, but there are some more Mark de Clive-Lowe related items. For once the Los Angeles based producer was invited to play at Low End Theory, and then there’s a new mixtape to promote his own night called Church.
Ahead of the TIEF new year’s party, Greymatter has done a mix for them. And you better be quick on that one, as they usually vanish after a few weeks.
Pearson Sound also played at London’s Boiler Room the other week and as usual you can download the DJ set or watch videos from the party. And while you’re at it, also check out the mixes from Karizma and Cooly G.
Music lover’s favourite car-brand Scion presents the latest installment in the remix series, a new single from Todd Edwards with remixes from the likes of Joy Orbison and MJ Cole. Didn’t exactly blow me away, but hey – it’s a available for free!
Nosaj Thing is still touring through Europe, Percussion Lab has one of his sets – it’s almost a year old, but sounds fresh enough to be heard again.
Two very dubby sets come from Brendon Moeller and Ike Release. The former was playing at this year’s MUTEK_10 and his set is now available for download. Ike’s studio mix was exclusively recorded for the great Sonic Router blog. You can download it here.
Not a download, but a mix worth a stream comes from Greenmoney Radio, who had Joy Orbison in to do a guestmix.
Lastly, 4hero’s Marc Mac posted a new podcast featuring unreleased outtakes and some rare remixes. Don’t forget, they’ve got a new album called Extensions in stores!
As second album from José James has been delayed for a release in early 2010, fans of the New York jazz-singer will be delighted to hear that his new single Blackmagic (Remixes) will come out on November 1st. The original version of Blackmagic is the second co-production with L.A.’s Flying Lotus, following a track from last year.
Out of the Los Angeles based Brainfeeder collective, comes TOKiMONSTA with a very nice mixtape she recorded for my man Lefto. Make sure not to sleep on her tracks, she’s among the most talented uprising producers in the world right now!
From earlier this year is a mixtape by Innervision‘s Dixon. The mix was a giveaway for Berlin’s montly Innercity club. 70 minutes of good new house music.
More musical hotness from Berlin comes from Modeselektor. For Resident Advisor’s podcast series, the DJs and producers have put together a sweet dubstep set, proving once more the boys open mindedness towards anything out there. I might add, that I prefer the podcast much over their new Body Language mix CD.
