Jneiro Jarel – JJ DOOM Mix

I just realised it’s been way over a month since we last had a dedicated mixtape post. This was an easy choice to make, being a fan of both Jneiro Jarel and DOOM, who just released one of the best hip-hop records this year: Keys To the Kuffs. The guys at Dazed Digital made this one happen, and it’s accompanied by a little interview worth reading.

On the downside, this one is only available for streaming, but of course there are always ways…

Weekend Mixtapes

Well, I think you really should listen to the mixtape made by K15, but then there were some others worth checking out as well.

I’ve been following the Modeselektor guys on Soundcloud for some time and I’m used to getting nothing but 1 minute snippets. But this week, they uploaded this 35 minute long mixtape by Anstam, who has been releasing several EPs on their 50 Weapons label.

Los Angeles’ Tom Wilson releases music under the names of Take and Sweatson Klank. He’s currently on tour in Europe and for Playground Magazine he did an interview and a guestmix.

Brainfeeder signed Austin Peralta, son of legendary skateboarder and filmmaker Stacy Peralta, released a wonderful Sun Ra tribute on All City Records. Dazed Digital spoke to the young pianist and he made them an Intergalactic Mix.

Another interview/guestmix combo comes by the way of Inverted Audio, who spoke to 7even Recordings founder Greg G. He plays some new material from the label, get his mix over here.

And lastly, check out the mix by Montreal producer Jacques Greene for Oki-Ni.

Update Forgot to include the Kutmah guestmix for Tom Ravenscroft

Actress: a film by Pierre Debusschere

A photo shoot with Actress? Forget it! A next level producer needs a next level visual presentation, and he gets it from from painter and photographer Pierre Debusschere, just in time for the release of the new album R.I.P.

All this was commissioned by Dazed Digital (I think), who also did an in-depth interview with the lumious producer.

Weekend Mixtapes

It’s weekend time, so here’s a selection of mixtapes I mentioned this week on Twitter.

French label 7even Recordings launched their own podcast series and they kick off with a mix by ENA, whose new 12-inch was only released the other day.

The second release on Jacques Greene’s Vase label comes from London duo Arclight and they’ve done an interview and guest mix for Dazed Digital.

King Britt has been releasing music under so many names, it’s hard to keep up. He just released a new EP on Hyperdub under his Fhloston Paradigm moniker and promotes it with a guestmix for FACT.

As Run Dem Crew is getting ready for the Berlin half-marathon, their founding member Morgan Zarate has done a 20-minutes mix for running.

I wish I had the time to keep up with radio shows, but here’s one I have to recommend. Tim’s You’ll Soon Know is on every Monday night and on his latest show his guests are Om Unit and Laurent Fintoni.

And lastly, check this 2003 Four Tet for Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide.

Weekly Bits 41/2011

As John Cale is about to release a new album on Domino, he talked to The Quietus about Stockhausen, Velvet Underground, Warhol and the present day.

In all quietness, I’ve added the second part of Erykah Badu‘s Out My Mind Movement video to the original post. Thought I’d let you know!

The King Midas Sound mix for FACT Magazine is one of those that stayed on my iPod since it came out two years ago. Glad they are back with a new one for Dummy Mag.

More recommended mixtapes are Mixmag’s Mix of the Week by Brighton based Greymatter, and Throwing Snow‘s exclusive mix for Dazed Digital.

I’ve kept my favourite finding to end this post: Mikuś Musik uploaded some truly classic radioshows, all of them aired around the year 2000. These include 4hero sitting in for Gilles Peterson, Phil Asher talking to Dominic Jacobson about the first Modaji LP (!), and shows from IG Culture, Patrick Forge and Kirk Degiorgio. You need each and every one of these shows!

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.

Inside the Cosmic Crib of Flying Lotus

With the release date of his new album Cosmogramma coming closer, Flying Lotus is back in the center of attention (as if he ever left it.) In this video he talks to Dazed Digital about rip-off, the death of his mother, and of course the new album.

And just as a reminder, Cosmogramma will be out on May 3, 2010 on Warp Records.

Interview with Gonjasufi & The Gaslamp Killer

Dazed Digital sat down with Gonjasufi and The Gaslamp Killer, the artist and the producer of A Sufi And A Killer.

If you haven’t yet, don’t miss the chance to listen to the album – it’s not only the biggest surprise this year, but also one of the pieces of music!
