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.

Weekly Bits 37/2009

You know I have a crush on the Kindred Spirits label, so I’m pleased to report they have some new releases. Build an Ark will soon return with their new album “Love”, in the meantime you can listen to the new EP which is available for pre-order. Already available is the album from the Kindred Spirits Ensemble, should be in stock at every good record store.

As I continue sucking up everything related to Miles Davis’ Kind of Blue album lately, I stumbled across these Legacy Podcasts about Jazz of 1959. In four episodes you can learn about jazz in the year ’59, the making of the milestone album Kind of Blue, but also on Dave Brubeck’s and Charles Mingus’ albums that came out that year.

I very much enjoyed Resident Advisor’s interview with Disco punk DJ Harvey and you should also check out FACT’s interview with Floating Points.

Mymanhenri has posted this live recording of Dorian Concept, Mamiko Motto and Cinnaman playing at L.A.’s Dublab.

Fans of the classic Reinforced label might want to show their love with this new (ehm, oldskool) t-shirt. And if I had some money left, I’d get me one of these Ghostly 10 Year Edition Posters from ISO50.
