Shortly before their debut album came out on Ninja Tune earlier this year, the duo of Letherette picked Clark and Dorian Concept to remix their upfront single D&T. For their new EP, their selection is equally good. The Jimmy Edgar mix above is currently available as a free download, further remixes by Bibio and Barker & Baumecker will be out in stores on Monday.
Jimmy Edgar and Travis Stewart are JETS (yes, it’s their initials), already one of the most exciting collaborations of the year. Their debut EP came out on Leisure System and a full-lenght will hopefully follow in the not so distant future. British Fact Magazine asked them to contribute to their podcast and you can listen to that one below.

As much as I anticipated the last Jimmy Edgar album, in the end I was a bit disappointed. Couple of good tracks, but a bit tiring as a full album. Anyway, next up is a 12-inch with remixes by Jon Convex and John Talabot. Like the album, it will be out on Hotflush Recordings with the release date set to October 8, 2012.
If you want to catch Jimmy Edgar on the road, have a look at the dates for the Majenta Tour. Also, download Jimmy’s Creepy Autograph Mixxx for DJ Broadcast.
Remember when there was a new Nosaj Thing article every week or so? It has been rather quiet lately and that could only mean the Los Angeles-based producer is working on a new album. He recently put together a mix for Mary Anne Hobbs and it indeed contains some new material.
Another album to look forward to is Jimmy Edgar‘s Majenta on Hotflush. On that occasion, the Berlin-based producer sat down with URB Magazine for an interview and mixtape.
A third album to look forward to is the collaboration between Tokimonsta and Suzi Analogue: Analogue Monsta. Scion A/V just sponsored their new video, now it’s Suzi doing a little mix for Okayplayer.
The latest oki-ni podcast offers a warm-up mix from Jackmaster & Ben UFO, recorded live at Amsterdam’s Trouw earlier in the year.
New Pixelord mix for Pixelatique, King Britt for Self-titled, and ISAN’s Easter Mix for something more different.
I guess, the latest Benji B Sci-fi Special deserves a mentioning of it’s own, especially if you liked his Space Odyssey mix from some years back. Support it on the BBC iPlayer before you download it, will you?
And lastly, let me share Frequency Module Volume 1 by our good friends Two Hungry Ghosts.
I’m really excited about the forthcoming Jimmy Edgar album on Hotflush Recordings, and that’s not only for the cover artwork that reminds me of my favourite Grace Jones records of all time (not the one shown below!) Well, this track proves my excitement is justified, but listen for yourself.
It’s actually just the b-side from the new single This One’s For The Children, but it will also appear on the Japanese version of the album. Titled Majenta, it is expected in stores in the first week of May.
One of my favourite podcasts that probably isn’t as popular as it should be is JJ’s Smoking Sessions. Each episode focuses on a specific artists, sometimes a style of music, and the mixes are always spiced up with interview snippets. In their 82th podcast, they decided doing a feature on Moodymann. As always it’s a good one and it deserves the topspot of Weekend Mixtapes.
Next up is an amazing mix from Aardvarck. Download Loopin for the Perfect Beat, try figuring out the tracklist and win a copy of his all new album on Eat Concrete!
With his second release on Fourth Wave out soon, Gerry Read has put an together an exclusive mix for URB Magazine.
The new mix from Los Angeles’ Jon Wayne already got a lot of buzz and it’s not that I Don’t Care.
Another LA native is Take aka Sweatson Klank and he did a guest mix for Mary Anne Hobbs’ radio show. You can listen to it on his SoundCloud or Mary Anne’s Mixcloud.
Up next, here are two mixes from Manchester. First is an exclusive Illum Sphere mix for Fabric. And then there’s Mark E‘s mix for the 2020 Podcast.
Not so long ago, LV were guest on Benji B‘s Radio 1 show. Their guestmix is available for download.
And lastly, check out Jimmy Edgar‘s mix from Boiler room, available here or there.
Almost ten years old, Jimmy Edgar made this Aaliyah remix back in 2002. Yes, it’s that Aaliyah track and considering its age the remix still sound pretty damn fresh to me.
No download or anything, just thought I share this with you!
To borrow an expression from the latest Rush Hour newsletter, Machinedrum has been “remarkably on-form” these days. New solo material out on LuckyMe, a must-have album on Planet Mu. And together with with Praveen Sharma (otherwise known as Braille) making music as Sepalure, who are about to release a new EP on Hotflush.
A1. Love Pressure (XI Remix)
A2. Love Pressure (FaltyDL Remix)
B1. Every Day Of My Life (Jimmy Edgar Remix)
B2. Down (Daedelus Remix)
Digital Only: Love Pressure (Lando Kal Remix)
Personally, I love the remixes from FaltyDL and Jimmy Edgar, so I can’t wait til these drop on August 15, 2011. Love Pressure Remixed will be available on 12-inch and digital, the cover artwork looks like it’s once again the work of the amazing Sougwen Chung. And I guess this is probably the last release from Sepalcure before their debut album drops.
With Rednose Distrikt and Lukid we had some pretty strong mixtapes last week, not to mention the all new podcast. But time doesn’t stand still, so here’s the latest edition of Mixtape Mondays.
As you know, Mary Anne Hobbs‘ final show was broadcasted last Wednesday. Her guests on the show were Kode9 and Burial, their mixtape is available on Percussion Lab (full show here.)
Fact Magazine continues to put out quality mixes. Following the Four Tet podcast, they put up new ones by Baths and Zed Bias.
The international Worldwide show (as opposed to the UK show) had a guestmix by LA beatmistress Tokimonsta, you can grab the full show from Core News.
More music from Los Angeles comes on the new Low End Theory podcast, with mixes by Daddy Kev and (once again) Baths.
In the past, XLR8R presented a variety of UK based dubstep DJs, but for their latest podcast they had stateside duo Sepalcure.
British blog Allez Allez has a guestmix from Jimmy Edgar, recorded live at Berlin’s Berghain club. And while we’re at it, let me also mention their excellent Caribou mixtape from a while back!
Lastly, I want to mention some classic Brazilian music by the way of HVW8 and Red Rackem‘s guestmix for the OFFtrack radio show.
Despite the ongoing World Cup, I think it’s time to revive that old fashion of weekly bits again.
With Form, producer AFTA-1 presents his latest art project: 100 cassettes with all new music, each wrapped in 1/100th piece of a painting. And if you threw your last walkman away 15 years ago, you can get a digital version as well!
Mixtape-wise, I was mostly listening to the latest Beats in Space show with Kompakt head Michael Mayer (and his set from Sunday Best) or James Holden’s guestmix for the XLR8R Podcast. You might also be interested in this free Jeremiah Jae mixtape or the Kirk Degiorgio podcast for Bleep43
New in stores are the Break Off EP by SBTRKT & Sampha with two tracks first heard on their Worldwide appearance, a picture disc (!) by Jimmy Edgar with a nice Kyle Hall remix, or a new one from Martyn on Ostgut Ton. You might also want to check out the debut album from Swede:art, now available on CD and download.
Recommended free tracks come from Kelpe, fLako and Greymatter.
If you’re into photography, have a look at these portraits by Morgan O’Donovan. He’s had the likes of SBTRKT, Pariah, Brackles, Sinden or Greenmoney in front of his camera.
A bit older, but never mentioned: Flying Lotus interviews Ikonika, SBTRKT mix for Benji B.
