Not that many mixtapes this time, but enough to get you through a weekend. And hey, it’s never been about quantity, has it?
The latest Solid Steel show just went up on SoundCloud and this week it’s been Brighton’s Ital Tek stepping up on the decks. Download now!
Al Tourettes comes from Bristol and both his production and DJ mixes are a bit darker than what you usually get served here. If you’re not afraid of that, check out his Besti-mix.
Until very recently, I was a bit worried not to have heard any new music from DZA, but the Moscow-based beatmaker just released a new EP on his own label. What a good occasion to promote it with a guestmix for Cosmopolyphonic (there’s also a free tune!)
You are probably subscribed to BTS Radio for a long time, but let me make sure you haven’t missed the latest guestmix from Shigeto!
And lastly here’s one from the archives: 180 recorded sets from the one and only LTJ Bukem!
May 19,2012 I really enjoyed this live-set by Deepblak’s Aybee, so I added it to the list. And while I’m at it, check out the Gang Colours guestmix for Mary Anne Hobbs.
This coming February will see two releases by Gang Colours on Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood label. First up is the single Fancy Restaurant with remixes by Ifan Dafydd, Deft and MachineDrum – listen to the latter below.
It will be out on 12-inch and digital on February 20, 2012. One week later on the 27th, it will be followed by the Gang Colours debut album “The Keychain Collection.”
The latest addition to the Brownswood label is English producer Gang Colours, who you might have heard on the Brownswood Bubblers 6 compilation. If you haven’t, you can listen to the track below.
Think it’s a keeper, then go ahead and download the track for free. Next up for Gang Colours is a remix for Ghost Poet, which will be out on 12-inch later this month.
