It took me a while, but I finally caught up listening to some more recent DJ mixes. Here are a couple worth checking out, including some brand new ones!
There is now way around this first one, as Kieran Hebden aka Four Tet has once again graced the decks at the Rinse.fm studio. If you just look for one mix to listen to, make it this one!
Next up there is Luke Vibert‘s mix for FACT Magazine from a couple of weeks back. Brilliant selection ranging from eighties boogie and electro to proto-acid.
Alex Phountzi and IG Culture have teamed up last year to form NameBrandSound, experimenting with juke and bass music, with an album in the pipeline for Ninja Tune sublabel Technicolor. Here’s their mix for Solid Steel Radio.
Oh, and don’t miss the later part of the same show, featuring a mix by Mo Kolours, whose debut album is available now!
News from Aardvarck are rare, but they usually involve a DJ mix by the former Rednose Distrikt man. Listen to The Present House of Aardvarck before it’s gone (which often happens quickly!)
I remember hearing about a Dublab livestream from UpMyAlley founder Joscha Creutzfeldt, but unfortunately it was only the day after. But the man was good enough to share his selection of soulful music on SoundCloud the other day.
And we’ll end this selection with two of my favourite producers from the early noughties: Domu, now officially back from retirement, recorded a new mixtape for our listening pleasure, while Titonton Duvanté rediscovered one recorded in 1995.
The Brainfeeder label always guarantees a great selection of music, their latest mixtape is called Brain Food and was put together by Alex B. If you like that I can already tell you want the FACT Podcast by Débruit as well.
Joscha Creutzfeld of UpMyAlley posted a mixtape made for RBMA Radio in 2007 on SoundCloud titled Lost and Found. This should make the waiting for the follow-up to his more recent Brrappness Mix a bit easier.
A very cool mix comes from Computer Jay, that is if you grew up in the eighties and you miss the sounds of your Atari 2600.
Citinite and LuckyMe are joining forces for a very special event in November, featuring Dâm-Funk, Rustie and Jimmy Edgar. To get you in the mood for that, check the mixtape they put together for The Fader.
House producer Mark E not only has a very beautiful looking website, you might also want to check out the mixes he has posted there, including the all new Merc Mix #1.
Lastly, here’s an older mix from Detroit legend Juan Atkins, which was recorded at the 12th anniversary party of Berlin’s equally legendary Tresor.
