Thursday mixes

Around the Pacific world in a couple of clicks: over at Discontent, "New Weird Australia" and an indie rock/punk-leaning, television-hating China mixtape.  Always great to hear more from the inscrutably named White.

Doc Delay and DJ B. Cause with Jukebox Wizard, a fun hour of remixes and blends (e.g. "Love in This Club" over a loop of "Where Did Our Love Go?").  Survivor over "Crazy"--with a faint whiff of "I Can't Go For That"--is readymade for your next college party.

Two new radio shows from Chairman Mao, one recent-ish, the other old and raer gem-laden.

"In the disco idiom," a charismatic set from the legendary Andrew Weatherall over at Ripped in Glasgow.

The UK's Fat Lace crew got wasted after Manchester United's tragic (but, to be real, deserved) 1-0 defeat at the hands of Leeds United and "laced us" with some random rap records.  Plenty of bizarre moments, from the Leeds vs. Manchester rap record battle to a quick reference to "Godfather Don Revie." (Vaguely related: Landon Donovan's letter home to the boys.)

Just as British: "All Black Everything," Southern Hospitality's Afrocentric rap mix.

Recloose's radio show Hit It and Quit It with some real sweet 70s grooves and steppers, including his gorgeous edit of Jeffree's "Love's Gonna Last." 

Ed from Shelflife Records with his favorite mellow-to-twee hits of 2009 (link at the bottom)

Prins Thomas live at Robert-Johnson (apparently a club in Frankfurt?). Also at Thizz Face Disco, "Berlin 61-89," a magnificent collection of Berlin Wall-related materials.
