Oh, we’re early with our weekend mixtapes selection, but there have been quite a few worthy ones this week.
Now that the new album by Space Dimension Controller is finally out, the Belfast-based producer has put together a mix for ClashMusic. And check out this interview while you’re at it.
Ukrainian deep house producer Vakula spent some time in London and played some records at Boiler Room, as well as on Alexander Nut’s Rinse.fm show (direct link!) And if that wasn’t enough, here’s a third one recorded after we first posted this article.
One of music’s best-kept secrets and contributor to our own podcast series, The Reboot Joy Confession, has put together a new mix for the Bebop Rodeo podcast.
Berlin-based Dutchman 2562 (aka A Made Up Sound) hardly gives away mixes, but his set from Amsterdam’s 5 Days Off festival is now available.
Also, you might be interest in Om Unit‘s guestmix for Solid Steel, a new one from Pixelord, and a minimix of unreleased Ital Tek tunes.
Just added: new Truants podcast mixed by Samoyed, Kutmah’s all Sa-Ra mix, and Hepcat Radio with special guest Ikonika
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.
Berlin-based Machinedrum did a mix for Dummy Magazine last week. If you’re into the records he’s playing, I can also recommend Nightwave‘s podcast by Dazed Digital and Mike Paradina’s personal selection of footwork influenced tracks for RBMA Radio.
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.
And lastly, let me mention these older mixtapes I came across: Blawan’s mix at Boiler Room, Deadbeat for Inverted Audio, and Recloose‘s 2002 guestmix for Gilles Peterson.
Not much time for a proper post, as I wanna catch some rays of sunshine while still in Berlin. So here’s a selection of mixtapes to get you through the weekend.
–BNJMN mix for URB Magazine
–Vakula did this Mix from Daze Gone By
–Dam-Funk‘s guestmix for Beats in Space
–Deadboy‘s Halloween Mix 2011 (and last year‘s)
-Wolf Music’s KRL made a mix for TIEF London
–Kutmah played a Kool Keith Special on radio last weekend
Hope there’s something for you. I’m out, have a nice weekend!
