Good mixtapes have been scarce and while I’m not aware of too many, here are a few I’d like to share with you.
To celebrate the launch of the Hinge Finger label, Joy Orbison did a little mix that you can stream here or download there.
You might have heard about DJ Spinna’s The Best of MdCL mix by now, but there are some more Mark de Clive-Lowe related items. For once the Los Angeles based producer was invited to play at Low End Theory, and then there’s a new mixtape to promote his own night called Church.
Ahead of the TIEF new year’s party, Greymatter has done a mix for them. And you better be quick on that one, as they usually vanish after a few weeks.
