Good Morning from Berlin! Morning has long been over, but I’m still in bed to compile this list of weekend mixtapes.
In anticipation of the forthcoming second Minimal Wave compilation, Veronica Vasicka has completed her another podcast for Stones Throw. And while we’re at it, you can get the advance releases of Minimal Wave Tapes Vol. 2 on the newly introduced subscription service on drip.fm.
Seriously, when does a man like FaltyDL get some sleep. Restlessly putting out music and there isn’t exactly a shortage of DJ mixes. His latest is available for download and stream at Concepto Radio.
Surefire Agency spent the week uploading old and new mixtapes froms the artists it represents. Among them is this Jukebox Mix by Addison Groove.
The all new Solid Steel show confused me for a second. Labeled as a Four Tet mix, it’s actually Bristolian Pinch doing a guestmix on the latest show.
Mixmag has a feature on Will Saul, founder of Aus Music. Interview and a short mix can be found on their website.
And lastly, LDLDN has tipped me off with this archive of old jungle mixtapes. Should keep you busy for a while!
One of the finest compilations in 2010, The Minmal Wave Tapes, finally gets to see a follow-up release in late February. Minimal Wave is a label run by Veronica Vasicka, specialised in the discovery, remastering and releasing obscure 1980s synth wave and proto-industrial.
