Let me give you a quick update on some mixtapes I enjoyed in the last couple of days, because it’s really been a while since we last did this.
In between her busy tour schedule, Switzerland’s finest DJ Sassy J put together a new mix for Dazed. Make sure to click that link and read the interview and catch her playing festivals all over Europe.
Speaking of festivals, the Dekmantel guys asked Andy Votel to contribute to their Selector Podcast series. The Finders Keepers label head delivers a two hours mix of “Turkish-only female funk/psych/disco/surf!”
And lastly check out a rare mixtape by broken beat innovator and producer extra-ordinaire IG Culture.
Digger’s Digest out of Paris made a great french jazz mix for the Jazz Meet Radio Show by Nik Weston, pure vibes. I definitely need more of this in my life.
Similar to this, Gilles Peterson made a mix of his favourite british jazz funk records for Ninja Tune’s Solid Steel Radio. Still not enough of Mr. Peterson, you could listen to Majestic Mood’s new Groove Merchants radio show which has a nice little interview with him.
Cologne’s Damiano von Erckert did the latest mix for Radio Juicy. Playing Sun Ra next to Omar S is always appreciated.
And in case you missed it -which would be hard to believe- FunkinEven did this week’s mix for Resident Advisor. Proper house music with some nice exclusives.
Tetsuo throws in two more mixes, Bullion‘s latest on the Boiler Room mix and James Murphy playing at the DFA 12th anniversary party.
Have a great weekend!
