Mixtape Monday #9

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.

Dâm-Funk & Nite Jewel

I remember Dâm-Funk announcing a collaboration with Nite Jewel on a radio show some weeks ago. While I don’t remember the exact show, XLR8R has posted this video, accompanying them as they sit together for some recordings.

Make sure you also grab their track Am I Gonna Make It, which is also hosted by XLR8R.
