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.

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 Stumbled across this on soundcloud last week and had to share, an amazingly tight mix, from Canada based Dj, producer, collector and green tea drinker The Gaff. The mix spans funk, soul, hip hop, original breaks and some of Gaff’s cheeky edits all put together with supreme class and skills. This mix was made by Gaff in the lead up to infamous Brooklyn fiesta the rub’s 10th Anniversary. Someone please teleport me to this party on the 28th and i’ll pay you in burgers forever!!
Here’s the mix
Also this Edit by Gaff destroys any dancefloor worldwide were people don’t suck and like shitty music. I’m sure Shantan will be all over this like a rash. DON’T SLEEP!!

Mixtape mondays week 2, i didn’t flake out. It was kind of a no brainer for me to take one of Paul Nice’s tapes for this week. He has been one of my biggest influences for years. Immaculate taste in music, skills to boot and killer production. I am still angry at myself for missing him spin at O-ii-shi all those years back. I have listened to most of his tapes and can safely say they are all jems. This 70 mins of soul soaked goodness should make your monday just that little bit more bearable.
