Almost three months since we last put together a selection of Weekend Mixtapes, what’s going on? To be honest, I wasn’t that thrilled by a lot of mixes. Maybe there are too many, maybe it’s an age thing. Anyway, here is a bunch I’ve been feeling lately.
Let’s start with the oldest and that has more to do with the fact that it comes from one of my favourite producers: Bristol’s Joe. A couple of weeks back he played some records for the Sonic Router podcast and it’s maybe not what you’d expect from him. Recommended download!
Next up we’re talking about a brand-new mixtape by FaltyDL, who just released his new album Hardcourage this week. Tune into his mixtape for Self-titled and read an interview with the man.
The guys of GiveUpArt dug out an old recording made in 2006 at London’s FWD club. Proper selection of dubstep (when it still deserved the name) from Appleblim b2b Headhunter.
And to be honest, this is where I’d like to stop already. Unless you want to hear some Kirk Degiorgio, Tom Trago, Juan Maclean, Ben UFO or Medlar – your decision!
Let’s start this first Mixtape Monday of the year with Dorian Concept‘s NYE Mix for LuckyMe. Dorian was spending his new year up in Scotland and put together this mix to promote the party he was playing at.
For more music of that kind, you should give Devonwho‘s mix for the Elm&Oak Podcast a try. And Montreal’s cmd/ctrl made a guestmix for Mondayjazz, just in case you’re on running short on beats.
Tempa’s Headhunter got on the SoundCloud train and has a mixtape to share. You can stream it from here or download it there.
As you might know Nite Jewel and Stones Throw’s Dâm-Funk are now working on an album-collaboration as Nite-Funk. Consequentially, Stones Throw asked Ramona to contribute a guestmix for their latest podcast.
For Resident Advisor, this mixtape from Brendon Moeller was mix of the week. I’m not so sure about that, at least it’s not as good as the one Brendon did for Resident Advisor way back.
The website of Bratislava’s Nu Spirit club has quite some mixtapes for you to download. I can recommend the Kid Kong Mix (direct link) from Gerd Janson.
SpaceBass are paying tribute to 4hero’s Reinforced label, one for the oldskool junglists out there.
Ramadanman posted this old Ruffage Session on Twitter this week. After listening to it repeatedly over the weekend, I decided to share it with you.
Here’s a summary of the many mixtapes I’ve posted on Twitter throughout the week, just in case you missed them.
Brainfeeder once again sets standards with their latest mixtape, which comes from dubstep producer Martyn, who surprises with a selection of hiphop, electro and anything in between. If you’re looking for real dubstep, Dub War’s new podcast mixed by Headhunter is what you’re looking for. More of this comes from the fine people of Tranquera, who are hosting this mix by Cooly G.
If you’re looking for something more disco, the latest edition of Beats in Space should be your cup of tea. Tim Sweeney invited Stuttgart’s Motor City Drum Ensemble to the show, who also played at Sunday Best the same weekend.
Further I got King Britt’s tribute to the great Sun Ra in the first podcast for Saturn Never Sleeps and a new mix from Italian beatmaker AD Bourke.
Guess that was it, hope there’s some in for you!
