Weekend Mixtapes

Wax Poetics celebrates its ten-year anniversary with their 50th issue, also known as the Prince Issue. And since there’s probably nobody on this planet who knows his funk better than LA’s Dâm-Funk, he was asked to together a special Prince Mixtape.

The Hudson Mohawke Valentine’s Day mixes have become sort of a tradition. No difference this year, you can download the fifth edition on LuckyMe.

And here’s another Valentine’s mix, this time put together by Los Angeles beat scientiest Shlohmo.

One of the highlights this week must have been Julia Holter‘s contribution to the FACT Mix series. Not an everyday mixtape!

Next up a triplet of house mixes: BNJMN promotes his DJ set at Italy’s SRSLY, Pinch has become Another Dubstep DJ playing House Music, and the Innervisions guys shared Dixon‘s recent set at Boiler Room.

And lastly, here are some oldskool vibes from Doc Scott and MC Conrad, recorded 1996 in Berlin.

Not much time for a proper post, as I wanna catch some rays of sunshine while still in Berlin. So here’s a selection of mixtapes to get you through the weekend.

BNJMN – 141

It’s been a while since the last Svetlana record came out, but now Serbia’s finest label is back with new music from BNJMN. Most people might associate this name with his brilliant debut on Rush Hour, but in fact BNJMN released on Svetlana before under the name of Jackhigh.

On 141 you get to hear “deep aquatic originals” plus two more remixes by Lukid and Kelpe to complete the package. Listen to the preview below.

01. One Sea
02. We Are The Weather
03. Inout
04. Hybridisation
05. One Sea (Lukid remix)
06. We are the weather (Kelpe remix)

You can already get the digital release from Svetlana’s Bandcamp page, but also from regular online retailers such as Bleep or Boomkat. The Kelpe remix is exclusively available from Boomkat at this moment, Bandcamp should follow next week.

The track above is one that didn’t make it on the release, instead you can download it as a free taster for the full release.

Weekend Mixtapes

There are quite some mixtapes making the round lately and it’s all quality stuff from what I heard so far. So if you’re not following my Twitter stream, here’s a roundup of recommended mixes to get you into the weekend.

With her new EP out on Brainfeeder, Tokimonsta is currently on touring across Europe and the UK. And for those that can’t make it, she has put together the Analogue Monsta, the first of a two part mix series.

Rinse FM had two absolute killers this week, first a two hours set from Africa Hitech, who also announced their new single this week. And secondly it’s SBTRKT‘s new show, which is even better than the previous. Lot’s of exclusives, new remixes and tracks from his forthcoming debut album.

We got a bit concerned about Dabrye lately, haven’t we? Pulse Radio managed to pin down the man for an interview and even got the man doing his first official mixtape. You wouldn’t want to miss that!

More beats are coming by the man of Jay Scarlett, who is guest on Pixelatique‘s latest podcast. And Pete Concrete has made an exclusive mix for this year’s Oddstream Festival.

Towards the end, let’s go uptempo again with BNJMN‘s mini mix for SHOOK, the new Solid Steel with a guestmix from Jackmaster and lastly a mixtape by Brendon Moeller.

Have a nice weekend everybody!

Mr Beatnick – Casio Romance (BNJMN Remix)

The forthcoming EP from Mr Beatnick already gained some attention among headz, Gilles Peterson being one of them. Next week, you will be able to pick up your copy from your favourite record store.

Until then, you can download BNJMN‘s remix off the same EP via FACT Magazine. Oh, and if you’re one of those lucky Londoners, make sure to drop by the release party next Friday!
