>Summer is here.
-Self promotion, kind of: I just uploaded a short Miami Bass (and Japanese/LA approximations thereof) mix I did years ago. Even if you listen to nothing else, don't skip Magnetic Force's "Unorthodoxism." (stream)
-Lovely mix from Mike Simonetti of the lapsed punk/Italo disco label Italians Do It Better. (stream/DL via Viva Italians)
-France's Krikor with a mix of odds and ends, from disco edits and house to the Monks, Buddy Holly and Spacemen 3, for Le Musicassette. (DL)
-Ridiculously feel-good mix of roller disco, boogie, New Jack and house cheapies from DJ Apt One. (stream)
-Proving once again that Europeans probably take hip-hop history more seriously than Americans, a mix of early rap and electro from straight-outta-Sheffield DJ Tat. (streaming via Meatskull)
-This is a few months old, but I just started listening to this engrossing self-megamix from Greek producer and.id. It's shuffly and precise and initially you think you know where this is going, but there are a lot of playful, quirky moments and unexpected melodies/tones. (streaming via Allez-Allez)
-A Quantic mix of otherworldly Ethiopian jazz and soul. (streaming via Different Kitchen)
-Occasionally terrifying: Davey Boy Smith of Southern Hospitality collects some of Three 6 Mafia and Friends' most bone-chilling moments. (DL)
-As a tribute to Malcolm X's birthday last week, Master Hurrikane offers a mix of some of rap's most righteous moments. Lord Jamar solo cuts, Professor Griff, Public Enemy...you know the drill. (DL via HHS)
