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.
I already mentioned the Embers Mix from Floating Points in the weekly bits, but just in case you missed it..
Out of the Los Angeles based Brainfeeder collective, comes TOKiMONSTA with a very nice mixtape she recorded for my man Lefto. Make sure not to sleep on her tracks, she’s among the most talented uprising producers in the world right now!
From earlier this year is a mixtape by Innervision‘s Dixon. The mix was a giveaway for Berlin’s montly Innercity club. 70 minutes of good new house music.
More musical hotness from Berlin comes from Modeselektor. For Resident Advisor’s podcast series, the DJs and producers have put together a sweet dubstep set, proving once more the boys open mindedness towards anything out there. I might add, that I prefer the podcast much over their new Body Language mix CD.
Mary Anne Hobbs had Joy Orbison among her guests in her latest radioshow. That’s something for your iPod I believe.
I have posted this last one on Twitter some weeks back, one of my favourite podcast JJ Smoking Sessions has put together another great episode that’s all about Prince. No excuses.
