The next installment in our mix series comes straight outta Bristol, a city with both a long musical history (I'll spare you the rehash) and a vital role in contemporary Grime. OH91 is a certified badman producer with riddims blending the raw and aggressive side of classic Grime to contemporary Hip-Hop 808 booms and hi hat rolls - a combination that keeps things current without gussying up the proceedings.
Fall Mixtape: Jimmy Ness December 8, 2014
Jimmy Ness bites the eel by the dozen Rather than opt for songs emotive of grey scale weather, blocked-guttering and shrinking daylight hours, I’ve compiled this fall mixtape as a snapshot of music I’m currently digging. The track-list reveals 2014 was the year I delved bellbottom-knee deep into funk’s luminescent depths. Prince, Zapp, Luther Vandross, Lakeside, […]
A new mix by South London's Riz La Teef with exclusives from Gundam, JT the Goon, Grandmixxer and more.
Chris Daly fucks, then he sleeps.   Say whatever else you might be so inclined to about Bonobo, but you certainly can’t say he’s been traveling at less than the speed of sound these days.  Fresh off his 18 month, international “North Borders” tour, he dropped the appropriately named The North Borders Tour – Live, a CD/DVD […]
Harold Stallworth is a world champion spades player. Autumn, the season of meaningful baseball, has finally reared its temperate head over the nation’s capitol. This mix was originally inspired by what was thought to be a balls-deep playoff run for the Washington Nationals, tailor-made for long, uncomfortable train rides to the ballpark. Green Line jams, […]
Chris Daly has the illest costumes OK, admittedly, this may not be the first Halloween mix you hear this year. Hell, it might not even be the first one you cop from Passion of the Weiss (props to Evan). Let’s not kid ourselves, though, one can never have enough musical accompaniment for a night filled […]
46 raw beats from the Fruityloops era mixed at high speeds in a pirate radio style.
Frank N Beats Mix: 005 August 11, 2014
Aaron Frank wrote this from the 38th parallel north of the Internet. As we work our way through the hottest part of the summer, I’ve included some downtempo tracks on this month’s mix to reflect the oppressive humidity we’ve been experiencing here in the South. Starting with back-to-back tracks from the burgeoning LuckyMe camp out […]
Son Raw’s Loose Synths August 7, 2014
And now, a word from Son Raw’s sponsor Another mix, another awkward self promotional write up from myself. Honestly, I can big up the artists I support all day long but writing about my own DJing is about as painful a task as I can imagine. As such, I’ll dodge that obligation by heaping praise […]
Jimmy Ness only fools with charcoal “Welcome to the land where it just don’t stop. Trunks pop, tops drop, and the front-end hop.” I like to imagine summer is a lot like the world Houston rapper Fat Pat [RIP] describes on “Tops Pop,” where the music is funky, the cars have impractical modifications and the […]
