Mixtape Monday Postponed

butters.jpgSorry for being lame and not having a Mixtape Monday for you guys today, I’ve got a couple of special Stupid Hat mixes being made by various people but you know how DJ’s are with deadlines – also I haven’t been chasing too much as the beatdown has knocked me a little sideways.

Anyway I can tell you that you need to get the Stones Throw podacsts as the latest one is a mix of Turkish funk by Egon – I had the pleasure of attending a rooftop party in LA when Egon was playing and seriously he killed it – just playing all sorts of Turkish, Ethiopian and who knows what funk – subscribe to it here.

The nice people over at Ghostly International have thrown a couple of treats our way – to be honest I don’t know anything about Chris Willits but both Yellow Spring (from his forthcoming solo album) and Shimokitazawa Face (from the just released collaboration with Brad Laner) are amazing. Yellow Spring is a beautiful, intense piece of electronica in the vein of Fourtet or Dabrye. Shimokitazawa Face is a lot harder and could be mistaken for thinking it was a collab between Josh Homme and David Holmes. Both should be played very loud on a late night drive into the desert.

Christopher Willits – Yellow Spring

North Valley Subconscious Orchestra – Shimokitazawa Face

Purchase the North Valley Subconscious Orchestra album from Ghostly here and the Chris Willits album is out on 17th October.

Also I am very excited to announce the return of South Park, the Season 10 premier is Wednesday eve in the states which means that here in the UK you’ll have to get your internet on on Thursday (lunchtime I would suggest). Youtube have the trailer here – awesome.Oh and if you’re lucky you’ll be able to download an amazing Bmore Club mix of Justin Timberlake’s ‘My Love’ from Discobelle before the link runs out.

    Olive, you really got jumped and beatdown? I didn’t think that happened in London. Good god, you poor boy. I’m glad you got away!
