9 Mixes Worth Listening to This Week
-Essential: Mister Cee's tribute to the sadly departed Guru of Gang Starr. Related, no less essential: Matthew Africa re-posts his recent Gang Starr mix.
-Of all the dude...4/20! mixes out there, few were composed "in-character" as compellingly as The Decibel Tolls'. (Unfortunately you have to click each track separately.)
-Madlib invades the airwaves--in this case LA's Friday Night Flavas--circa 2005, via Nah Right and Stones Throw.
-Buoyant old school-themed mix from Australian DJ Pactman for the Groove Therapy show, via Meatskull.
-A rare unironic invocation of the "Chillwave" tag, courtesy someone named DJ Billy Brown, via Kansans "Bear Club."
-I hope Mixcloud sticks, because it is a pretty amazing archive of new and old mixes. It's not the most intuitive site to navigate, which actually facilitates some great moments of random discovery. Perfect day for doubles of "Bucktown": a massive DJ Premier set from 1994. And a considerably more hyper "Rotterdam Junglist" mix.
