Anthony released his debut album Body Pill this week, a record I haven’t listened to enough to make up my mind yet. What I did enjoy tremendously is his guestmix for the Resident Advisor podcast series. Music from Led Zeppelin, Tim Hecker, Terry Riley, into a proper selection of house and techno.
Press play and read the interview on the RA website, where you can also grab the download.

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.
A couple of days ago, I watched Resident Advisor‘s latest addition to their Real Scenes series, a portrait on the vibrant house scene in Johannesburg. Like the previous installments on Bristol, Detroit, Paris and Berlin, it gives interesting historical background on the music coming from the city, just that Johannesburg is a place I don’t know an awful lot about, making it a special episode.
Haven’t done these in a while, but this week there are enough mixes worth a mention. Shall we start?
One-Handed‘s Dedication series is one of the more exciting podcasts, each episode being dedicated to just one artist. This time it’s Mr Beatnick who shares his love for Sun Ra on his eclectic mix (he wrote about him before!)
Next up is something I’ve mentioned before in a side-note, the second podcast by the Tempoclash crew. And it’s a special one as Danny Breaks doesn’t do many mixes these days.
So, I haven’t been posting anything as of lately and it might in fact go on like this for a little more. Thought I through in a selection of mixtapes that popped up during last week.
It was only a question of time until the big ones asked Vakula for one of his rare mixtapes. The Ukrainian house producer put together a selection of his tracks for Resident Advisor and answered some of their questions.
This Wednesday, Ninja Tune’s Slugabed joins Thundercat and Floating Points for a show at London’s Fabric. On the occasion, he did a mix to promote the night.
It was back in April when Manchester-based Krystal Klear graced Benji B with a guestmix. Unless you downloaded this one before, you can listen to it on SoundCloud and leave some direct feedback on this excellent mix.

Set The Tone is already one of the biggest dance tunes for me this year, so I’ve been following all of Ossie‘s activity since then. Last week he came up with a mix for the Hyponik podcast and it’s a good one.

Whenever I hear one of the Detroit producers reminiscent about The Electrifying Mojo, I go an seek recordings of his shows. Which is how I stumbled across this interview with Prince (transcript) and this compilation which was incidentally released this month.
Will Saul’s Aus Music is preparing a Japan exclusive compilation of some of its back catalogue. It’s cover artwork well crafted and Save Vinyl shares some photos of its making. Selected Works will be out next week and if you must you can get it from HMV Japan.
