Weekend Mixtapes #27

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.

Weekly Bits 4/2010

Some long awaited releases have been on sale since last week. José James‘ second LP Blackmagic was delayed a couple of times already, but now it’s finally available on CD.

LA’s Stones Throw label has two new releases out now, one of them being the 5-LP box set of Dâm-Funk’s album Toeachizown. The second new offering is quite a surprise to me, it’s the instrumentals of Mayer Hawthorne‘s A Strange Arrangement.

Paul Pre, the man behind the latest podcast, is about to launch his club night Vast and now offers his own podcast series. You can listen to the first three on Mixcloud.

Meatskull have posted this very exclusive mixtape from Massive Attack’s 3D. Back in 2002, this was a give-away to the first 200 attendees of a Nocturne club in Bristol.

More than six hours of music are featured on this recording of a Move D party in Switzerland. Fans of deep house and minimal techno need to grab this 529 megabyte monster!

Chances are high you will find me tuned in on Lukid’s Ustream channel on Monday evening. Lukid, Bullion and Luke Vibert are now featured on a new 12-inch on Ghostly. Limited release, be quick!

Dazed Digital have posted some of Carlos Nino’s favorites. That’s favourite bands, labels, websites and books.

The RBMA in London will kick off real soon and together with Resident Advisor, they curate this special event. Carl Craig, Moritz von Oswald, Matmos, Bugge Wesseltoft, Henrik Schwartz – what are you waiting for?

And speaking of books, the author of my favourite novel The Catcher in the Rye, Jerome David Salinger has passed away this week. Rest In Peace!

Volume 03 – mixed by Paul Pre

Actually a designer, Paul Pre is best known as DJ behind countless mixtapes. Following contributions to Mondayjazz, Moovmnt and Musique Large, Paul has put together his latest mixtape for nutriot. While he is know to put together instrumental hip-hop mixes, this one is actually the first dubstep/garage mix from him – and it’s just as good as his others!

When he isn’t working on quality mixtapes, Paul Pre is also playing at parties. His new club night Vast will kick off this February, starting with special guest fLako.
