Mixtape Mondays with the bros from Paper Plane Project. These dudes have just dropped a solid mix paying homage to the electric piano. The mix focuses on current international soul/jazz-infused hip hop and beats all made using their favourite instrument. I remember the first time PPP came through Stolen Records with hype brewing around their first album, since then they have continued to push and evolve their own unique sound, Finishing off a second instant classic album called Miles Apart. Which by the way you can cop on their bandcamp here MILES APART.

This Mixtape Monday we rewind to Jeremy Sole’s mind blowing set from Coachella, wish i was there for this. The mix is a live recording so you can get your mind teleport on and pretend you had enough money to go. The mix like Sole’s production and influences cover’s so much ground, genre hopping and uncovering sounds from all corners of the globe with a unique chaos factor that seems to string everything together. Dude has impeccable taste and is a super tight dj. For me this mix was totally inspiring to see a dj spinning whatever the hell he wants and doing it so well. Get your global education class on with this live mix packed full of vibes.
Jeremy Sole- Live at Coachella
Here is a Cumbia inspired Whitney (R.I.P) dubplate from Sole.
Ok so this Mixtape Monday is a history lesson, but it’s a fun histroy lesson that’s not actually that old. Today we’re revisiting one of the most hyped mixes of 2007, Ruckus Robotics The Music Machine Mix, which was awarded Solid Steels best mix of the Year in 07, which is pretty much the mixtape game equivalent to winning a Oscar. The mix itself goes everywhere from the Micky Mouse club to Bow Wow and the Avalanches to LCD soudsystem, all laced together with subtle cuts and playful samples to keep things fun and interesting. The mix is ripped from the Beat Oracle radio show on WCRS, so you will here some chit chat and history from Ruckus himself. Big Ups Beat Oracle for making this downloadable and available to the rest of the world. This mix won’t be for everyone, but for those who can appreciate a dj with serious skills and sense of humor, then this is for you. Ruckus Roboticus went on to release an insanely good album “Playing With Scratches” and continues to blow minds with mixtapes, originals, remixes and edits.
This Mixtape Monday i’m going on the self indulgent tip and posting a mix i just finished myself. Today’s Mix is a follow up to a last years Sucker For Love Volume 1. After a year of procrastinating and thinking about tunes that would make sense, it’s finally done an hour and 20 mins of Love related jams covering everything from Hip Hop, Soul and Funk to New Jack, Garage and Disco and everything in between. I’ve also thrown in a few freeloads from the mix because you know i’m nice like that. Much Love to all the Haters, Mike Who, xo
I’m back from my shoestring euro trip broker than ever, which means i’m back at work which also means Mixtape Mondays is back. To kick things off we are going with one of Stateside’s finest, FourcolorZack’s and his mix Weekday Warrior Pt 3. This got me through some long haul layovers and i’m sure you will all vibe off it. Dude has skills for days and and crazy way of making stuff that shouldn’t, work! Check the Evil Woman to Saturday in the park transition. BANANAS. Your mondays are now complete, go eat an icecream and dance. There are also a bunch of other amazing mixes on his soundcloud page worth checking. here
This happened this morning. Live on triple j for Like A Version, The Hoods do a little tribute to MCA and the Beastie Boys with a cover of What’cha Want from their 1992 album ‘Check Your Head’. Thoughts?
