9 Mixes Worth Listening to This Week

-Some fantastic stuff on the Future Boogie site: a disco-to-present Todd Terje mix and a blistering set from world famous DJs and collectors Kon and Amir.

-The brilliant and principled Wayne Marshall thumbs his nose at the copyright cops, re-posting two mixes--one a collection of "orientalist-tinged dubstep," the other a trip through various African popular genres--that a former student did back in '06.

-This just sounds like an awful tease given the view outside my window right now, but No Conclusion with a quick springtime mix "to chill out to in the sun or whatever."

-If you're stuck indoors like I am, consider this ethereal Prins Thomas mix, courtesy our friends Allez-Allez.

-DJ/rupture links to this massive mix by DJ Ripley. The bass weighs a ton.

-If you ever find yourself in Ann Arbor, you must check out the Ann Arbor Soul Club. Brad Hales, one of the party's resident DJs and a record collector of considerable repute, blesses 100 Limousines with this incredible soul mix.

-For their 200th podcast, Resident Advisor offers an exclusive Carl Craig mix.

-Le musicassette has an "exoticore" mix from Guillaume Sorge of the DIRTY Sound System.

-And if all of this was too softbatch for your sensibility: try this Rogue Trooper "angry, snotty hardcore punk" mix up at Meatskull
