Weekend Mixtapes

Let’s see, you got new mixtapes from Flying Lotus and Dego this week. Looks like you’re well supplied for the weekend already, otherwise here are some more.

The Valentine Mix from Breakbot still does it for me, but then I found this new one on Crazy Birds and it’s just as good. Summer disco vibes.

This Saturday, New York’s MoMa is hosting a Warm Up party featuring an allstar line-up of Four Tet, SBTRKT, Matthewdavid and Falty DL. The latter also has warm up for the Warp Up, a mixtape hosted by The Fader.

Lando Kal did a mix for Rush Hour sublabel Direct Current, playing nothing but records released on the label.

Beat Dimension’s Jay Scarlett‘s plays some new music on the latest La Menuiserie podcast, and Daisuke Tanabe has put togehter a promo mix for CDR.

Of course you can go visit Boiler Room‘s website anytime you’re in need for a mix. Recent guest selectors include Scuba, Mount Kimbie (live), Mark Pritchard, Photek, Guido or Space Dimension Controller.

Slept on Mixtapes

One of the good things about every year’s best-of-mania is that you can actually find some stuff you slept on before. In my case these were a couple of mixtapes I’d like to share with you.

From the head of Aus Music comes a nice selection of house music, the 80 minutes long Within Matter Mix by Will Saul (just in case: alternate link).

And from there it’s not far to Scuba‘s guestmix for Brazilian platform Tranquera. A bit of house and techno, some dubstep and everything in between.

Dutch artist Parra is doing some mixes every now and then, always a bit different from what we usually write about, but never disappointing – like his latest for Red Light Radio.

The last one isn’t exactly something I slept on, but I haven’t mentioned it either. Put together by Breakbot for all you lovers out there: Valentine Mix for Dazed Digital.

Breakbot – Baby I’m Yours

Nice song with an even nicer video from Breakbot here. It was entirely handmade by Irina Dakeva, who painted about 2,000 aquarelles to become this animated beauty.

The single features Outlines‘ Irfane on vocals and comes with remixes from Aeroplane, Sirius Mo and La Funk Mob.
