Weekend Mixtapes #32

Last Sunday, NTS broadcasted a b2b set by Jamie xx and John Talabot live from Miami, now the three hour mix is available for download/stream.

Zombie Zombie and I:Cube performed a one off live session at Paris’ Raspoutine, which you can listen to on SoundCloud.

New York’s FaltyDL has become a regular on our weekend mixtapes lately, so we cannot but mention his latest mix on Solid Steel Radio!

Chaicago’s Hieroglyphic Being grace the Boiler Room with a 40 minute mix, Bass Clef shares a new mix, and xxxy uploaded his latest show on Rinse FM.

Not exactly a mixtape, but a teaser to the upcoming Yatha Bhuta Jazz Combo album, a collaboration between Onra and Buddy Sativa.

And to finish off this week’s selection, here’s a true diamond: check out this massive Rhythm & Sound DJ-set recorded in Detroit back in 2006 (and don’t let those Windows sounds drive you crazy, unfortunately they’re part of the recording!)

Weekend Mixtapes #25

As the weekend is about to kick off, the internet has a very special selection of mixtapes this week. Let’s have a look at them.

With his much anticipated third album Nebula Dance finally in stores, Brighton’s Ital Tek is about to tour the U.S. in the coming weeks. He also did a mixtape for Self-titled Mag and picked his 10 favourite footwork tracks for Dummy.

Another album to look out for is Kid Kanevil and Daisuke Tanabe’s Kidsuke, which will be out on November 2nd. In the meantime, check out their mixtape for Finest Ego’s Monthly Mix.

Next up, we got a triplet of uptempo mixes: London’s xxxy got to play a show on Russian radio Follow Me Studio, Scuba showcases lots of new Hotflush material on his mix for FACT Magazine, and you can stream Objekt‘s 2-hour mix from this year’s Dimension Festival.

Boiler Room invited Berlin’s Dixon & Âme to play at their ADE party the other day, that’s 4 hours in the mix!

Hyperdub’s first lady Ikonika did a guestmix for Rob Booth’s Electronic Explorations and she included a previously unheard remix of hers.

Legendary Philadelphia DJ and producer King Britt was approached by the Pew Center for Arts and Heritage “to curate a show on Afrofuturism and its influences on me and my compositional work.”

Hot on the heels of his new single on Brainfeeder, London’s Lapalux stopped by at Los Angeles’ KCRW to do a mini mix.

The oldie of the week comes from Jneiro Jarel, who posted his Houston We Have A Solution Mix made in 2005 (careful, it’s a Facebook link!)

And lastly, let us remind you we had two new mixes out ourselves: Lokiboi contributed to our own podcast series, and Tetsuo did a mix for Colectivo Futuro.

xxxy – I Know This Can’t Be Love

You might remember the track Everything from some months back, which will be out on a 12-inch of the same name through Well Rounded Records. Below you can watch Big Egg‘s video for the b-side of the same record.

The record will be out on April 16th, you can pre-order your copy from Juno.

Update Dummy Mag did an interview with the director of the video

xxxy – Everything

Years ago, this would’ve been filed under guilty pleasures, but thanks to the likes of Zomby, the love for ravey piano house has been liberated. So let’s talk about this new on from xxxy or rather listen to it.

You’ve probably heard this on his XLR8R mix before and the bad news is, it’s still not available. Release date unknown, but it should be out on Well Rounded Records anytime soon.

March 2, 2012 The Everything EP will be out on April 16th, snippets can be heard on SoundCloud
