10 Mixes Worth Listening to This Week

More

Very weather-appropriate: an hour of Radio Jamaica from 1988 (stream)

Via Orlov: excellent mix from Floating Points that captures that intrepid, futuristic spirit of 70s jazz, funk, fusion, and beyond. (stream)

One more (?) Guru tribute mix from D-Day One (stream)

Meatskull compiles some of Jah Wobble's favorite dub tracks (d/l)

Rediscovering some great Matthew Africa mixes: his tribute to Southern soul maestro Willie Mitchell is masterful (stream)

Really cool mix of Island Records favorites from Paul Williams (d/l, stream) (w/ links to a BBC documentary on Island's rise...it will all remind you of how, with the right mix of money and eccentricity, a multinational can still get pretty weird.)

A spacy, dubby twee-house mix from Mademoiselle Caro pour Telerama-Radio (d/l)

"...mix is best heard with marijuana & gin & tonic," from Yellowman to the Smiths: a collection of favorite tunes from the Art Museums (via TFD, d/l)

I always enjoy Bradford's (Atlas Sound/Deerhunter) "micromixes," which manage to be a bit more expressive/intimate than the typical Internet mixtape. (d/l)

Southern Hospitality's latest 12x12 mix is a classic drum-n-bass set from Matt Evans (d/l)

What some of the kids are listening to, circa April 2010: a fairly mellow mix from GvsB (stream)
