Weekend Mixtapes

We started the week with a Mixtape Monday, now it’s the time to think about the weekend. Here are five mixtapes to get you started.

London’s Tempo Clash collective celebrated its first anniversary about a month ago. They’ve been kind enough to record the B2B set by Kutmah and Om Unit. To get a glimpse of the vibe, stream or download the recording.

I didn’t expect Dego to allow his set recorded at the Boiler Room to go online, but that’s exactly what happened earlier this week. That’s a must have!

There used to be a new Pete Concrete mix every 6 months or so, but for his latest one he took a bit longer. His new one is called Psycho in Active and it’s as good as always.

George FitzGerald‘s releases on Hotflush and Aus Music are always worth checking out, but there aren’t that many of his mixes available. This week, he’s contributed one to the XLR8R Podcast.

And to round this up properly, check out the new iO guestmix for Hyponik. Just to make sure, iO is not to be confused with these cats!

Weekend Mixtapes

There are quite some mixtapes making the round lately and it’s all quality stuff from what I heard so far. So if you’re not following my Twitter stream, here’s a roundup of recommended mixes to get you into the weekend.

With her new EP out on Brainfeeder, Tokimonsta is currently on touring across Europe and the UK. And for those that can’t make it, she has put together the Analogue Monsta, the first of a two part mix series.

Rinse FM had two absolute killers this week, first a two hours set from Africa Hitech, who also announced their new single this week. And secondly it’s SBTRKT‘s new show, which is even better than the previous. Lot’s of exclusives, new remixes and tracks from his forthcoming debut album.

We got a bit concerned about Dabrye lately, haven’t we? Pulse Radio managed to pin down the man for an interview and even got the man doing his first official mixtape. You wouldn’t want to miss that!

More beats are coming by the man of Jay Scarlett, who is guest on Pixelatique‘s latest podcast. And Pete Concrete has made an exclusive mix for this year’s Oddstream Festival.

Towards the end, let’s go uptempo again with BNJMN‘s mini mix for SHOOK, the new Solid Steel with a guestmix from Jackmaster and lastly a mixtape by Brendon Moeller.

Have a nice weekend everybody!

Weekend Mixtapes

The weekend is nigh, so here’s another collection of mixtapes to get you in the mood for the weekend.

Following their massive album Resurrection, Chicago house veterans Virgo Four are this weeks contributor to XLR8R’s podcast series.

More house music comes by the the way of Mark E, who recently release an album on Ghostly. His mix is part of the label’s own podcast series.

We’ve been sporting Pete Concrete‘s mixtapes whenever there was a new one, so why make a difference? His latest is an exclusive for Dublab.

Fellow blogger Tim of You’ll Soon Know invited S. Maharba as guest for his latest radioshow. As with all shows on NTS Radio, you can download this one for repeated listening.

The latest Hessle Audio show on Rinse FM brought together the talents of Joy Orbison, Pearson Sound, Ben UFO and Floating Points. If you missed the show, you can now grab the podcast.

Pearson Sound also played at London’s Boiler Room the other week and as usual you can download the DJ set or watch videos from the party. And while you’re at it, also check out the mixes from Karizma and Cooly G.

AFTA-1‘s guestmix for Onur Engin’s Monotape must have been around for a while, but I only came across this via We’ve Got The Jazz.

Lastly, I have to mention this mix from Raffertie, who’s playing a fantastic selection of UK bass music on Inverted Audio‘s latest podcast.

Mixtape Monday #18

For the last week or so, I was hardly listening to anything else but that Theo Parrish Special on Benji B’s show. Listening to the iPlayer is more important than you might think, it’s a direct way to measure the popularity of a show – something that might in the end decide whether a show will be continued. In the case of last week’s show I did all I could, but now you can no longer listen to it. Unless you download a recording.

I have posted this old Dego mix for BTS some weeks ago, now it’s officially back in the archive. Not to be confused with his more recent guestmix, posted in February.

To give his all new 12-inch an extra push, former Bugz in the Attic man Seiji has posted a new mix. Available as stream and download.

The last Pete Concrete mix is only about a month old, but the Eat Concrete head already made another one. Get this exclusive Eat my Garbage mix for Nalden.

Fresh out of the Hoya:Hoya stable comes a mix by its co-founder and 2010 RBMA alumni Illum Sphere.

If you’re missing Lukid‘s sessions on Ustream, here’s a little compensation: for the all new Svetlana Industries shortcast he has put together a mix.

Rush Hour‘s Antal was visiting São Paulo for the Bienal and brought back some records you can listen to on Brasil Show part 1.

Lastly, here are two mixes from the Resident Advisor podcast. Last week they were graced by a dubstep-meets-techno mix by Kowton, this week they have a house mix by the trio of Detroit Beatdown.
