Weekend Mixtapes #42

Recorded live a London’s Plastic People in late January, listen to the second installment of Floating Points’ You’re A Melody mix.

Having impressed us with his debut album released last year, we keep following the doings of Huerco S whenever we can. This week, we came across this 2 hour long mix for Berlin Community Radio.

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.

UK techno legend Kirk Degiorgio shared a DJ mix recorded at Amsterdam’s TROUW for the Midnight Shift podcast.

Let’s not forget about those Valentine’s Day specials: Hudson Mohawke continues his annual Slow Jams series, while Peanut Butter Wolf goes over the top with a 24 hour long mix for the FACT podcast.

And lastly, one from the archives. Hessle Audio’s Ben UFO mentioned this on the latest radio show, don’t sleep on this podcast for weareie recorded in 2007!

Update Let’s not forget about the latest Hyperdub show on Rinse.fm (direct link), hosted by label-boss Kode9 himself

Weekly Bits 41/2011

As John Cale is about to release a new album on Domino, he talked to The Quietus about Stockhausen, Velvet Underground, Warhol and the present day.

In all quietness, I’ve added the second part of Erykah Badu‘s Out My Mind Movement video to the original post. Thought I’d let you know!

The King Midas Sound mix for FACT Magazine is one of those that stayed on my iPod since it came out two years ago. Glad they are back with a new one for Dummy Mag.

More recommended mixtapes are Mixmag’s Mix of the Week by Brighton based Greymatter, and Throwing Snow‘s exclusive mix for Dazed Digital.

I’ve kept my favourite finding to end this post: Mikuś Musik uploaded some truly classic radioshows, all of them aired around the year 2000. These include 4hero sitting in for Gilles Peterson, Phil Asher talking to Dominic Jacobson about the first Modaji LP (!), and shows from IG Culture, Patrick Forge and Kirk Degiorgio. You need each and every one of these shows!

Bodytonic Podcast by Kirk Degiorgio

Kirk Degiorgio is one of those artists whose music had a huge impact on me around the change of the millennium. He has put out music under the names of As One, Off-World Ensemble (and Offworld) and together with Ian O’Brien, Jinadu and others, he forms The Beauty Room. Apart from these involvements (and many others), he has relaunched his ART label in late 2009.

For the latest Bodytonic podcast, Kirk has put together nearly two hours of music, a selection he calls his Winter Mix.

Mixtape Monday #7

Just when I finished last week’s post, Sonic Router posted an interview with Tokimonsta, accompanied by a nice mixtape. As you might know, she is currently touring through Europe, check out her MySpace for dates.

Speaking of dates, I want to make sure my London based readers don’t miss this Thursday’s concert of Build an Ark at Cargo. The lovely Beyondjazz crew dedicated their latest radio show to the Ark’s very own Carlos Niño, so don’t sleep on this.

More fresh beats out of Los Angeles come from Take aka Sweatson Klank (via YSK) and the Low End Theory podcast makes a return with Daddy Kev and Diabase on the decks.

Kirk Degiorgio, the man behind countless monikers including As One, The Beauty Room and Offworld, has put together a minimal set for Little White Earbuds. It contains many of Kirk’s more recent productions like ART-8 and Isomer Shift.

To give José James upcoming album some more spin, Gilles Peterson has put together a brand new podcast. You probably haven’t heard the latest 12-inch yet.

Hyperdub’s LV has mixed a selection of dubstep, hip-hop and even jazz for French magazine TSUGi.

Musique Large has two new treats for you, La Mixette 13 was mixed by Paul Pre and Vol 14. by Swede:art (hint).

As last, I give you two unusual mixes. First is the 100th FACT podcast put together by Norwegian disco-krautrocker Lindstrøm. Bodytonic invited Sven Weisemann to do a “classical-meats-electronic” mix for their podcast.

Kirk Degiorgio – ART8

The latest 12-inch on Applied Rhythmic Technology comes from label founder Kirk Degiorgio himself and will be available tomorrow. In the meantime you can listen to all three tracks in his SoundCloud player.


You can already pre-order this limited record from Rush Hour or check out this review from Resident Advisor. Also scheduled for later this year is a 12-inch on Carl Craig’s Planet E imprint.

Weekly Bits 11/2009

Kirk Degiorgio has dug out some of his older mixes for Nuphonic‘s London Xpress show. The only chance to listen to them is via his SoundCloud page, downloads are not available.

Another interesting radioshow comes once again from Future Vintage. The reason why this caught my attention is a short recording of Kaidi Tatham playing live at Amsterdam’s Paradiso. It’s only one track and it’s running in the background, but it’s accompanied by a short interview with the man.

Did anybody listen to the album from Heavy yet? I have the feeling I should get my hands on this, I liked their previous output a lot. Let me know what you think!
