There haven’t been any weekend mixtapes in about a month, but this time we have enough to get you through a week – or even longer. The reason, of course, is Hyperdub founder Kode9 who uploaded about 30 mixtapes he made over the last decade.
Next up are Kutmah‘s last three Sketchbook radioshows, which he dedicated entirely to a certain J Dilla. Download one, two, three.
As I revisited his past podcast more recently, I got excited when Hamburg-based B-Ju announced a new mixtape, because he’s an ace DJ with great taste in music. If you tend to agree, check out the latest Origami Sound podcast.
Following the second single of his album Hardcourage, Drew Lustman aka FaltyDL does another mixtape, this time for the folks at The Fader.
Together with Paul Pre, RaminskiVast family, but he’s also running his own series of mixtapes. Check out the latest volume on his Mixcloud page.
And lastly, check out the second Tropics podcast for oki-ni and October‘s mix for Truants.
Good morning, this is your weekend speaking and this is what you will be listening to (apart from this!)
I could’ve sworn there had been a Four Tet mix on Solid Steel earlier this year, but apparently it’s his first guestmix since 2001. Don’t miss!
With the Olympics over, London’s Kelpe went all sporty and came up with this table tennis inspired mix for oki-ni.
With his much anticipated debut album finally out on LuckyMe, Vienna’s Cid Rim sat down with Urb Magazine to do a little interview and guestmix.
Due to our holidays, we missed the Untold podcast for Resident Advisor – and who would want to miss that?
And lastly, Hudson Mohawke and Lunice are sharing the uncensored version of their recent Essential Mix.
Update If you’ve enjoyed our latest podcast by Huess, let me point out there are two more available at Dipped in Dollars and You’ll Soon Know.
As we haven’t updated you on new mixtapes lately, check out these from the last couple of days.
His previous two Lover’s Melt mixtapes still produce a lot of search queries on this site, so you might be happy to hear about the third installment in Flying Lotus‘ series.
And it’s once again one of FlyLo’s pears, London based DJ Kutmah, who has got a mix to deliver. This time he was asked by FACT Magazine to contribute to their podcast series.
Martin Clark’s Blackdown blog did a feature on Om Unit and his Cosmic Bridge label. Comes with a short interview and a mix.
Recorded at an Oslo RBMA party, listen to a live set by Four Tet.
This Linkwood mixtape has been around for a while, let’s download it!
Boiler Room co-founder Thristian aka the bPm put together TOOHOTTOLISTENTOTECHNO for the guys at oki-ni
And lastly, another one from the archives: the Hyponik podcast by Photomachine.
Well, I think you really should listen to the mixtape made by K15, but then there were some others worth checking out as well.
I’ve been following the Modeselektor guys on Soundcloud for some time and I’m used to getting nothing but 1 minute snippets. But this week, they uploaded this 35 minute long mixtape by Anstam, who has been releasing several EPs on their 50 Weapons label.
Los Angeles’ Tom Wilson releases music under the names of Take and Sweatson Klank. He’s currently on tour in Europe and for Playground Magazine he did an interview and a guestmix.
Brainfeeder signed Austin Peralta, son of legendary skateboarder and filmmaker Stacy Peralta, released a wonderful Sun Ra tribute on All City Records. Dazed Digital spoke to the young pianist and he made them an Intergalactic Mix.
Another interview/guestmix combo comes by the way of Inverted Audio, who spoke to 7even Recordings founder Greg G. He plays some new material from the label, get his mix over here.
And lastly, check out the mix by Montreal producer Jacques Greene for Oki-Ni.
Update Forgot to include the Kutmah guestmix for Tom Ravenscroft
Several of these would’ve deserved a post of their own, but time wasn’t on my side this week.
One of the most exciting was clearly the new Four Tet mixtape Conference of the Birds, on which he plays two yet unreleased tracks. No tracklist, so happy spotting.
Second in the list is the new Lone mix. The occasion of this is the forthcoming album on R&S, but then any occasion is good as there aren’t too many Lone mixes around.
Anything from James Pants is worth taking a listen and so is this mix for oki-ni, “a collection of unique home recordings and rarities.”
I’ve already mentioned the new Sonic Router podcast on a side note, but being from Kelpe I don’t mind repeating myself here. Check it out!
And if you can take another hip hop flavored mix, why not give Jonwayne‘s XLR8R podcast a try?
John Tejada released a magnificent, yet somehow underrated album last year. He doesn’t play any of his new music on this Halo Cyan mix, but he plays some unreleased music from Appleblim, Al Tourette and Arkist – triple A!
I’m gonna sneak in James Murphy’s Boiler Room set without having listened myself, but now matter how famous he is, he’s always up for decent DJ mixes.
And lastly, here’s one I missed earlier. Back in March, LuckyMe‘s very own Eclair Fifi played some new tunes from the label on the Juno podcast.
This was supposed to be a collection of mixes for the weekend, but since Ms Riot was in town over the weekend..
Just hot off the press is the latest Resident Advisor podcast mixed by Martyn. As you all know, his new album arrived today, so maybe you want to listen to this mix on your way to the shop.
The last couple of mixes by Tropics became all-time favourites in no time, so I’m really looking forward to this new one for oki-ni.
2000black founder Dego is currently on tour through Japan. I wonder if he really needs promo mixes to fill clubs over there, but he made one just in case (and for everybody outside of Japan.)
And from there it’s easy to draw a line to Eric Lau’s Last Night on Earth mix for Put Me On It, which went online a couple of days ago already.
Set The Tone is already one of the biggest dance tunes for me this year, so I’ve been following all of Ossie‘s activity since then. Last week he came up with a mix for the Hyponik podcast and it’s a good one.
Jacques Greene was on Rinse FM last week, Phon.o contributed a mix for Electronic Beats, and the Boiler Room‘s back to back from Quest and Silkie is online.
One of the most anticipated albums for this month should be Severant by Kuedo. The other week he guested on the FACT podcast and I think he also made a mix for Mary Anne Hobbs.
If the last one in this selection gets any extra attention, then it shall be Sotu the Traveller‘s mix for DJ Broadcast.
Update This one just came in, it’s an impressive 95 minutes mix by Bristol’s Appleblim for FACT Magazine
The first lady of Brainfeeder, LA’s Tokimonsta is the latest contributor to oki-ni‘s podcast series and it’s a truly wonderful mix.

Unfortunately, this mix is available for stream only, unless you’re familiar with certain methods.
Chances are you already heard the latest FACT Magazine podcast, a live recording of Jamie xx & Oneman. The two were playing back to back at what appears to be the hottest club in the UK right now: London’s Boiler Room. Expect a selection from disco and boogie to garage reworks of nineties pop-dancefloor tunes. A bit crazy, but really nice.
Next up we got last week’s Dummy Mix from Dutch producer 2562, in which he plays new music he’s “feeling from all over the place.” Also available from his SoundCloud page, just in case you feel you need to press the +fav button.
Our podcast contributor Kelpe did a guestmix for Tom Ravencroft’s show on 6 Music show last month. If you missed that one, you can grab the download off SoundCloud.
Paul Pre, another contributor to our podcast series, will be playing at this year’s Outlook Festival in Croatia. To promote himself and the event, he put a new mix on Mixcloud.
For oki-ni, dubstep producer Martyn did a mix “as if it were a spring afternoon radio show, with a few jingles and music from across the board”, including Carl Craig, Tom Tom Club, Austin Peralta and Caribou.
I got some more bass music for you released in the last couple of weeks: SBTRKT‘s recent show on Rinse FM (direct link), the Throwing Snow guestmix for Get Me, and Fantastic Mr Fox did one for The Guardian.
We’re gonna end this as we started, with another recording from the Boiler Room by Kutmah.
