There were quite a lot of mixtapes this week worth mentioning, so rather than waiting for Monday I’m posting them just in time for the weekend.
Kieran Hebden aka Four Tet has joined Gilles Peterson to record a special podcast in honor of Steve Reid, who passed away recently. Kieran and Steve recorded several albums together, so there are some anecdotes to tell and of course lots of music from Steve.
Another mix full of classics comes from my fellow countryman DJ Nuts, who plays a selection of music from the legendary Arthur Verocai. Take this as a reminder to cop Mochilla’s Timeless DVD box-set.
The latest Resident Advisor podcast features a mix from Dutch dubstep producer Dave Huismans, better known as 2562 or A Made Up Sound.
Here’s an interesting project Mr Beatnick hooked me up with. We Aint Music is putting out an EP from Jungle Drums and Ahu. Limited to only 250 copies, it’s coming out on vinyl only. Each copy features a unique cover artwork.
This is the remix from Mr Beatnick, the EP also includes the original, an instrumental version and two remixes from Mwëslee. It should be available soon, watch out for the announcement on MySpace.
