Next up here are two mixes from the Young Turks label. First it’s the Jamie xx mix for BBC 6music aired in Decemember, then the label’s FBI Radio take-over featuring Four Tet, Earl Sweatshirt, Domo Genesis and once again Jamie xx.
Wax Poetics celebrates its ten-year anniversary with their 50th issue, also known as the Prince Issue. And since there’s probably nobody on this planet who knows his funk better than LA’s Dâm-Funk, he was asked to together a special Prince Mixtape.
The Hudson Mohawke Valentine’s Day mixes have become sort of a tradition. No difference this year, you can download the fifth edition on LuckyMe.
And here’s another Valentine’s mix, this time put together by Los Angeles beat scientiest Shlohmo.
One of the highlights this week must have been Julia Holter‘s contribution to the FACT Mix series. Not an everyday mixtape!
As you might know, Russian beatmaker DZA and Hudson Mohawke spent some time together in studio at this year’s RBMA. A previous collaboration was available on SoundCloud before, now you can listen to a remix off Hudson’s Butter album.
For more new music by DZA, check the Fly Russia compilation. It’s new and it’s free!
It’s been a while since the last Mixtape Monday, so apart from featuring some of last week’s mixes, I will sneak in a couple of older ones.
Some weeks back, Gilles Peterson did a Drum & Bass Special on his weekly radio show. I never imagined I’d (still) feature that music on this blog, but when it comes to the late nineties I’m all set for that. If you missed the show, you can now download both hours from SoundCloud. Especially the first part is much recommended!
Also from Gilles Peterson is the podcast to promote the forthcoming Havana Cultura Remixed compilation.
I don’t get tired of new Hudson Mohawke material, so I’m glad I didn’t forget this new mix he posted on Facebook (I think) yesterday.

Announcing Hudson Mohawke‘s upcoming tour through the United Kingdom, his label Warp has posted this bootleg remix of Jodeci. You can download it from the Warp website, where you will also find the tour dates.
And the last free download comes from FACT Magazine, who are hosting a new track from Krystal Klear for the next seven days only!
Not for download, but definitely worth checking out are the Om Unit remix for Colonel Red, Illum Sphere’s Titan (did you check Super Charged?) and the last couple of uploads from Lukid (as long as they’re online!)
If you like the music featured on this blog and you’ve been out in London, you know Plastic People as the first address for underground music. Be it the FWD parties, Tony Nwachukwu’s CDR events or IG Culture’s CoOp club, they all take (or in the latter case took) place at the same address in Shoreditch. It now seems Plastic People’s license is currently reviewed by the London Police, threatened to close its doors forever. To stay updated on the events and to learn how you can help, join this group on Facebook.
This is what happens, when you try to ignore Valentine’s Days and any related links passed to you on Twitter: I completely overlooked Hudson Mohawke‘s slow jams mix for LuckyMe.
Stumbled across a couple of interviews this week. No Depression’s Jay Hayes had the rare opportunity to sit down and have a chat with Betty Davis. The Okayplayer forum collected questions for Dego of 4hero and 2000Black fame, you can read it on his blog. While we’re at 4hero, let me also mention Knowledge Mag’s Week In The Life of 4hero with Marc Mac.
Lots of videos from the London Red Bull Music Academy are there to discover on their YouTube page. One of the highlights is the concert of Henrik Schwarz & Bugge Wesseltoft at the Royal Festival Hall.
