Good mixtapes have been scarce and while I’m not aware of too many, here are a few I’d like to share with you.
To celebrate the launch of the Hinge Finger label, Joy Orbison did a little mix that you can stream here or download there.
You might have heard about DJ Spinna’s The Best of MdCL mix by now, but there are some more Mark de Clive-Lowe related items. For once the Los Angeles based producer was invited to play at Low End Theory, and then there’s a new mixtape to promote his own night called Church.
Ahead of the TIEF new year’s party, Greymatter has done a mix for them. And you better be quick on that one, as they usually vanish after a few weeks.
If you’re looking for something more quiet, check out this one put together by Jon Hopkins.
For those remembering Sven Swift’s jazz mix from a while back, check out his latest for Find Magazine.
And as a little bonus, here’s a free download of AD Bourke‘s beat tape released back in 2008 on Domu’s TrebleO label.
December 20, 2011 Let me throw in two more mixes: Beat Dimension’s Danny Corn X ASG and another by Julien Dyne!
Christmas is still a bit away, but here comes one reason to look forward to it. Japanese label Wonderful Noise sets the release for Julien Dyne‘s second album only a few days before fat old Santa comes crawling through your chimney.
To get yourself an impression, you can listen through 17 minutes of snippets by clicking the player below. I have to say, these sound most tasty and I can’t wait to get my hands on the full album!

Glimpse will be available in Japan starting December 21st, 2011. It looks like BBE is once again taking care for the rest of the world, they already released a first single off the album but don’t offer further infos on the new album. Wonderful Noise plans a CD-only release of Glimpse, with a vinyl EP following in February 2012.
Recorded at the Red Bull Studio Auckland back in summer 2009, Julien Dyne performs live together with singer Parks, Lewis McCallum and Butterfingas.
And here’s another one from the same session:
You can find all these tracks on Julien’s Pins & Digits EP on BBE, there’s also a Mitsu The Beats remix out on Wonderful Noise.
More videos from that live-session can be found here.
