If you came via the frontpage, you might have noticed there’s another post for this release right next to this, a post for the promo mixtape made by Seiji. Well, we think we need to go back there one more time, and the reason is the track you can listen to after the jump.
We’re very fond of this track (maybe not so much about the flipside), reminds us of what Julio Bashmore or Ramadanman are currently doing. We recommend securing your copy directly from the Seiji webstore. Needless to mention you can also find it at your regular store like Boomkat, Rush Hour or Bleep.
We klearly have to start with this one, the 267th FACT mix put together by Mancunian Krystal Klear. Mix of the week!
Russian radio Headz FM recorded Africa Hitech‘s Moscow live-set from some weeks back. Get the two-part download while you can and also take a look at this tribute by DJ Rasskazov. And if that’s not enough, give Africa Hitech’s set at Sónar 2011 another spin.
Russian beatmaker Damscray and Sunlike are playing a selection of instrumental hip hop for Ukrainian Sashiradioblog. Available for download or stream.
While we’re still waiting for his new album, Ben Westbeech is playing some summer tunes on his mixtape for Vice Magazine.
New York’s Brennan Green has been playing on Beats in Space numerous times and remember these shows as some of the most entertaining ones. Plus he’s always playing good music, so grab his latest.
Tectonic’s Jack Sparrow has made a minimix for his booking agency, Seiji promotes his new record with his Seiji4 Promo Mix, and Eva Be is playing some house records for you.
Like every week, there are plenty of Boiler Room recordings worth grabbing, but Ossie‘s mix deserves special mentioning.
Mary Anne Hobbs keeps uploading those guestmixes for her new show to her Mixcloud account. Check FaltyDL, Machinedrum, Daedelus or the latest show with Teebs and Blawan.
And lastly, here’s one I was sent when my computer was dead. You might have heard of IG Culture’s new labels Holy Roller and HR2. The first releases on the former is the Manz at Work mixtape and features several unreleases remixes.
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.
I haven’t been feeling that well lately, but that also means I had a lot of time to go through some mixes. This week I want to catch up on some I’ve been enjoying in the last couple of days.
My favourite comes from FaltyDL, who is also one of my favourite producers these days. He’s got a new album coming out this year and talked to Dummy Mag about that. And yes, he also made them a pretty good mix. No tracklist, but I’ve spotted some bits by Floating Points and Oriol.
Coming in as second is this live recording by Greymatter, who’s been playing in São Paulo the other week. The whole thing was recorded and is now available from his SoundCloud page.
Last week, Benji B had a chat with the legendary Carl Craig on his radio show. For me that show was a first highlight of the year, as they revisited some of my favourite music and Carl had some nice stories to share (I never heard that Recloose story in detail!) While the show is still on the iPlayer (where you should always support your favourites), you might want to download the show for later.
While we’re at Carl Craig, you might also want to get your hands on the Essential Mix.
If you prefer some darker sounds, check out Untold‘s guest mix for Clash Magazine, it’s been around for a while already. And for more of that soun check Pinch‘s contribution to the Resident Advisor podcast.
An all guesmix for Spine Radio comes from Seiji, who plays a similiar selection as on his recent SEIJI3 Promo Mix.
Austrian producer Innaseen has sent me some of his music in the past, but I never got around writing about it. His Train Wreck Mix for RBMA Radio is something I don’t want to leave unmentioned.
Lastly, here’s the all new FACT Podcast, put together by another hero of mine: Photek, whose comeback already made a major impact this year.
Resident Advisor have a little anniversary to celebrate, their 200th podcast went online today. It was put together by no other than Detroit legend Carl Craig.
The guys from Warm have another great offering this week, a mix from Chris of Amsterdam’s label (and record-store) Rush Hour. It focuses on early Chicago house and comes with a nice interview.
Also hosted by Warm is this new mix by Alex From Tokyo, called NYC Edition.
Greymatter has completed the third of his 2Steppin Into Tomorrow mixes, featuring new music from Seiji, Cosmin TRG, Floating Points, Roska and more.
Another live-recording from the recent Brainfeeder Session in London has shown up, this time it’s the set from Nosaj Thing.
Andrew Meza’s BTS Radio had a guestmix from Lone, which you can grab here.
Some old bits can be found on Luke Vibert’s UK Hardcore Rap mix or this Autechre live-set from 1996.
For the last week or so, I was hardly listening to anything else but that Theo Parrish Special on Benji B’s show. Listening to the iPlayer is more important than you might think, it’s a direct way to measure the popularity of a show – something that might in the end decide whether a show will be continued. In the case of last week’s show I did all I could, but now you can no longer listen to it. Unless you download a recording.
I have posted this old Dego mix for BTS some weeks ago, now it’s officially back in the archive. Not to be confused with his more recent guestmix, posted in February.
To give his all new 12-inch an extra push, former Bugz in the Attic man Seiji has posted a new mix. Available as stream and download.

Rush Hour‘s Antal was visiting São Paulo for the Bienal and brought back some records you can listen to on Brasil Show part 1.
Lastly, here are two mixes from the Resident Advisor podcast. Last week they were graced by a dubstep-meets-techno mix by Kowton, this week they have a house mix by the trio of Detroit Beatdown.

Also have a look at Zomby’s page on SoundCloud, there’s some new stuff going on!
