There’s always a whole lot of mixtape, podcast, and playlist action happening around the internet, so, as your faithful distillers of the highest quality electronic music out there, we’d like to do you the service of presenting a handful of this week’s finest collections of tunes around. Behold, Beatport News’ first podcast roundup.
– South African house-hybridists and Hyperdub signees LV assembled this odd mix of Soweto house, hip-hop, disorienting wobble, old funk, and the kitchen sink for The Fader.
– Dark techno of The Advent, Clone Records, and Underground Resistance make up the bulk of Drexciyan DJ Stingray’s recent XLR8R podcast. Real underground energy. (full mix)
– Crack Magazine (not to be confused with Cracked Magazine) talks to Juju & Jordash (pictured above) and enlists them for a deep and colorful house- and techno-tinged mix.
– Butterz’s Elijah twists up some funky shiz with DMC champ Shiftee in this UK-meets-US grime/rap summit. Starkey, Royal T, Wiley, Lil Jon, Danny Brown, Skepta, and more make appearances.
