Back in 2009, we actually wanted to launch this very podcast with a mix from a female producer, but after many delays it unfortunately never materialized. 17 episodes in and we are very proud to announce a mix from one of our favourites: Turkish singer, producer, DJ and radio presenter Ahu. She has worked with the likes of Flying Lotus (as Dolly), Grooveman Spot, Mr Beatnick or Emanative, in 2010 One-Handed Music released her wonderful solo debut, and next on the list will hopefully be her first long player. It was her Vida Ahu Nova! mixtape for Brainfeeder that made us become a fan of her musical selection and eventually lead to this new episode.

In the coming week, 2012’s Bloc is taking off in London. Over the past weeks, the makers of the festival did a series of interviews with some of the artists performing. Check out the videos with Steve Reich, Apparat and Nicolas Jaar.
As you should know by now, Rob Booth has just released the first Electronic Explorations compilation. That’s 60 tracks for only ₤5! If you’re not convinced yet, here’s a mixtape with all the tracks.
Another big mix I wanted to post earlier this week is the latest in One-Handed‘s Dedication series. It comes from Turkish singer Ahu and she introduces the listener to one of her favourite jazz singers: Blossom Dearie.
Alex Chase of One-Handed Music has re-uploaded a mixtape by Ahu, made exclusively of early Paul White beats. If you missed it the first time, grab the download now!
There’s also a new Paul White 7-inch which features that Frankie Goes To Hollywood track I fell in love with on his mix for 6 Music. And you should’ve heard about Ahu’s new 12-inch on One-Handed Music by now.
Here’s an interesting project Mr Beatnick hooked me up with. We Aint Music is putting out an EP from Jungle Drums and Ahu. Limited to only 250 copies, it’s coming out on vinyl only. Each copy features a unique cover artwork.
This is the remix from Mr Beatnick, the EP also includes the original, an instrumental version and two remixes from Mwëslee. It should be available soon, watch out for the announcement on MySpace.
