Now, if it’s mixtapes you’re after, good news, I’ve been using dropbox and thought I’d share a link to the folder here, if you’re not a user I’d recommend it, installing the desktop client when you sign up using the link below will increase my available share space, which means more mixtapes for everyone! Installing the client isn’t essential however, if you just want to get the mixtapes, last link in this post is what you’re after.

The contents of the rolling archive will change from time to time so what you get will depend on when you look in there, installing the client will enable you to easily transfer the ones you want to keep to another folder…

First starting his rise smashing chumps via DJ battles, Bristol’s Parker soon turned his hand to production gaining “lofty comparisons to the marvellous RJD2″. The driving soul and deep bass of his debut album To Eternity was described by DJ Magazine as having thrown “stylistic doors open wide with deliciously pleasing results”.



First Degree Burns

A sound so fresh it started a whole new genre, they call it ‘Skip-Hop’: fusing ska, reggae, hip-hop, rock and mad energy, this eight-man team serves beats, bass, horns and hooks with a hefty dollop of cheeky lyrical wit. Up tempo, conscious, danceable, invitingly innovative, musically accomplished, eclectic… and most importantly, not taking itself too seriously!
You might have caught them at Shambala, Boom Town, Beach Break, Fusion (Berlin) and countless other festivals across Europe recently; they’ve also supported The Beat, Bad Manners, Gomez, Jerry Dammers and The Slackers along the way. You are going to want to be right down the front for these guys. See why at:


The Scribes

Winners of the Exposure Music Award’s “Best UK Urban 2011”, Winners of the Eat Music Radio Award’s “Best Live Act 2012”, one of Venue Magazine’s “30 best live shows at Glastonbury”.
The Scribes are co-lyricists Ill Literate and Loki Steele, Beatbox maestro Lacey and Dj Kenny Hectyc, whose combined talents create a genuinely unique hip hop sound. The Scribes push the limits of hip hop to almost breaking point, mixing traditional hip hop sampling, live instrumentation, the most phenomenal freestyling in the UK and more energy than is even remotely sensible. More info at:


DJ Cheeba

Cut and paste sounds and pictures for people with short attention spa… oh look over there it’s:

Dub Boy

Bristol bashment boomty bass… music rooted in the dancehall and aimed straight at yer waistline. Check it out at:



Eclectic and energetic, the Death$ucker Records head honcho bridges the void between bass-drenched Dubstep, ragga-infused Jungle and 250bpm 8-bit Gabba. Taste the action at:



Mix Masta Mullet

Party/hip hop/mashup/turntablist from South West UK. Mix Masta Mullet has been DJing and honing his skills for 10 years and has now made his mark on the scene with his first proper piece of work – the ‘Party at the Back’ mix.

Holding down the heavy end in Peterborough, Ontario are The Wax Addicts, committed vinylists and to date masters in the arts of Drum n Bass and other weaponry. Having pretty much sown up their local underground scene they’ve decided to give their mainstream contemporaries a massive 5hr pimp slap of a mix, you know, just to show them how it’s done.

No tracklist on this one, the internet just isn’t big enough – there’ll be bags of tunes you recognise and even a few that slipped past but trust me they’re all mixed in the style that Wax Addict fans will have come to enjoy.

Flea Market Funk

Ok, so not actually a mixtape, but well worth a listen.

With so many blends going on, people are definitely stepping up the game with what they are putting an acapella over these days. Case in point: Miami producer TenDJiz has released this little gem to the masses. In an unheard of move, he’s paired up Long Islands’s hardest working trio (the brothers from the East with the beats that be thorough), De La Soul with some Soviet, Soul and Jazz. While you may be saying “what is this guy talking about over at FMF?” in the back of your head, hear me out. I’m feeling this, and I have a hunch that you will too. This is some lazy day shit people. I believe I could pump this on a road trip, bike ride, or on a Sunday afternoon while cooking some marvelous shit up in the kitchen. Already gaining high remarks from the likes of Wax Poetics, XXL, Blurt, and the Miami New Times, get this thing before it’s gone. It’ll have you saying: “Xotite potancevat”!


All tracks produced/mixed/mastered by TenDJiz at TenDJiz Miami Studio

‘This is a Journey into Beats ‘n’ Frames’ famously riffs off of two classic Coldcut trademarks and checks the render setting to ‘highest’. St. Petersburg’s Mr Armtone becomes only the second person to have a guest AV mix on Solid Steel, supplying a packed hour with his trademark tight mixes and equally syncopated imagery . Each video has undergone his own edits, remixes and tweaks and the quality is top notch throughout. It features music and visuals from the Ninja Tune stable with Daedelus, Hexstatic, Diplo, DJ Kentaro and Coldcut all making an appearance, plus more from Tipper, Ian Brown and the Pixies remixed by Bassnectar.

This is part of a set that is played out live using Serato Video-SL plug in for Scratch Live.
