New mix: Smoke

We’re still in 2017-land with this one, but don’t let that put you off. I have to admit I missed a whack of good stuff last year in grime, which Butterz’s annual Grime 20XX comps always put me up on, but generally I tried to avoid those cuts since they mix them better than I could. Instead I pilfered some favourites from the ever-growing pile (Tuckz, 67) and some I overlooked that popped up in others’ lists (notably the always essential Bleep one, from which I snagged the revelatory DJ Lycox and a quirky one from E.M.M.A.). Plus the Stormzy and Dizzee LPs yielded a few bangers. Enjoy the fruits of my (belated) labour…

New mix: Weaving

Astute readers will notice that I haven’t posted a mix since March. I’ve been… busy? I moved continents (which required giving up freelancing music writing – so, blogging’s appeal is somewhat renewed), broke my spleen and tried to make some music of my own. Time to get back to other peoples’. Expect more regular updates again, starting with this simple little thing I threw together and continuing with my best albums of the year roundup as soon as I can relisten to about 60 albums…

New mix: Calling Card

Oh, but this was a fun one. It must be spring if there are this many bubbly tracks fighting for space in one mix — minds turning to knuckles-in-the-air outdoor raving and such. I’m a little late with the goods this time but I promise there will be another mix soon. Tracks are coming fast and furious, from the Stormzy album to various newcomers I’m enjoying like Tuckz. For now, enjoy, and play with the windows down.

New mix: JAWS

folder

This one is especially rugged – lots of raw, sort of distorted sounds, though there’s a nice mellow bit in the middle with the Mala single (which is gorgeous) and the SBTRKT/Jessie Ware collab. My favourite tune in here is definitely the DJ Big O remix of the BFlecha tune. I could mix a whole set of that. And don’t sleep on the Ill Blu tune either – Hyperdub just killing it with their comps lately…

Mix: Out of office.

fire-sm

Last week, from my studio on the 436th floor of the a-void.ca Communications Complex here in downtown Metropolis, I was distraught at the lack of posts around here. But then I remembered it was still technically summer so I should get off my ass and go drink something, outdoors. In the meantime I made you this mix, which was pretty easy since three of my favourite labels – Kompakt, Poker Flat and Full Pupp – have lately been kicking out the slam-dunk house and disco jams.

Check this out, and keep your eyes peeled for the return of actual writing on this site starting next week…

This mix is not new, but it’s too much fun to sit on any longer. I feel funny big-upping my own stuff, I keep hearing the kid from De La Soul Is Dead going “it’s slammin! Yo, it’s slammin!” So I dunno, here’s some free music and stuff. Enjoy.
