Weekend Mixtapes #35

We’ll keep it short this week, because basically we think that you can’t ask for much more when Resident Advisor puts out a podcast mixed by Kyle Hall and XLR8R responds with someone like Omar-S. Well, we secretly hoped that a third party, say FACT Magazine, would jump in with another from Theo Parrish, but of course that didn’t happen (they have L-Vis 1990 this week!) Anyway, the before-mentioned third generation of Detroit producers also have new releases in store: Kyle Hall’s debut album The Boat Party and Omar-S’ Thank you for Letting Me be Myself.

Since we mentioned them on our Twitter stream earlier this week, let us also notify you about the new Beats in Space guestmix by Four Tet and Bibio’s podcast for The Fader.

All good, see you next time!

Omar S – Who’s In Key

You probably got yourself that free Omar S EP released by Scion A/V earlier this year. Now one of its tracks featuring Theo Parrish got a nice glitchy 8-bit video directed by Colin Devin Moore.

Just the kind of stuff I’m into, awakening memories of wasted days of childhood in front of my Commodore: beat ’em ups like Target Renegade, decrunchers, badly cracked games and their intros. Does anyone follow me?
