So this dude Mala is hella dope. He’s perfected the ingenious way of blending reggae and cuban sounds with understated dubstep. Sounds totally weird but it’s actually really amazing. So, no crazy, obnoxious drops here. Just some really excellent, moving tunes to vibe out to.
This one’s a two hour Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1 so just press play and settle into it. Trust the kid! It’s a worthwhile listen.

Guys. Go outside today. Don’t make me beg you. If you’re posted up in the DMV with us, it’s gonna be upwards of 60 Degrees Farenheit today and I strongly urge you to abandon all obligations and hit the streets for some springtime shenanigans. Go run through a sprinkler. Pet your neighbor’s dog. Let your pale winter legs out to get a little sun.

Oh, hey yawl. Stoop here with your weekly installment of Mixtape Monday. Today I’ve got Bok Bok‘s latest mix for the Fade To Mind camp and it’ll be an awesome soundtrack to your life once March Sadness kicks back up later this week. Heavy bass, sexy vocals, and freaky future sounds will easily counteract all the ratchetness of those nasty brawds.
If you’re not in the know yet, Bok Bok is a part of the Night Slugs/Fade To Mind collective with artists like Kingdom, L-Vis 1990, Mike Q, Nguzunguzu, and the like. They’re on some future club tip which is actually pretty dope. These guys aren’t following the leader in the studio – they’ve created a totally unique sound that you can really only hear when you’re fuckin’ with their crew. Here, Bok Bok demonstrates the most up-to-date cross-section of the very best of Fade To Mind and Night Slugs music. Something totally different from the standard big room bangers that are rockin’ off today. Enjoy!
Tracklist: 01 – (unknown) – (unknown) [Night Slugs Club Constructions] 02 – DIVOLI S’VERE – What I Want Ha (Ckunt Diet Remix Instrumental) [Qween Beat] 03 – BOK & TRAGO – Work This Pussy [Night Voyage] 04 – JAM CITY – (unknown) [Night Slugs Club Constructions] 05 – DIVOLI S’VERE – Giddy Up Ha [Qween Beat] 06 – L-VIS 1990 – Ballad 4D VIP [Night Slugs] 07 – RUSHMORE – Couture [Trax Couture] 08 – DJ SLIINK – Follow The Leader 09 – BOK & TRAGO – Hole Driller [Night Voyage] 10 – DJ SLIINK & MIKEQ – Werk’d It [Fade To Mind] 11 – KOWTON – F U All The Time bootleg 12 – JEREMIH / JOE / WILEY – (AKITO bootleg) 13 – JAM CITY – How We Relate To The Body (HELIX bootleg) [Night Slugs] 14 – JACQUES GASPARD BIBERKOPF – For The Women 15 – IKONIKA – Backhand Winners [Hyperdub] 16 – DAT Oven – Icy Lake (L-VIS 1990 Refix 1) [Night Slugs / Fade To Mind] 17 – BOK BOK – MJT (LOL GURLZ Black Nail Polish bootleg) [Night Slugs] 18 – KINGDOM ft KELELA – Bank Head [Fade To Mind] 19 – JAM CITY – Love Is Real (MOKONA bootleg) [Night Slugs] 20 – 151 FEVA GANG – Shaking My Dreads
I’m such a Ryan Hemsworth fangirl. Sorry not sorry. He’s such a babe AND he’s super dope in the studio and behind the decks. It’s an enticing combo worth exploring okay. I can’t help myself. But lemme stop before Reed takes away my taco stipend for gushing over boys all over his website.
ANYWAY. Ryan Hemsworth stopped by U Street Music Hall last week to play with Schlomo and Daedelus and now I’m in love all over again. Bias aside, his opening set was undoubtedly the highlight of the night. His sounds are so hip-hop and R&B driven that you would never imagine it coming from this hipster-lookin’ white dude but it so is and it’s awesome. He’s sitting on a goldmine of syrupy, slow-motion edits and remixes of tracks like KP & Envyi’s “Shorty Swing My Way” and Frank Ocean’s “Thinkin Bout You” that are perfect for late night boo-lovin’ or something to listen to after you overdose on reruns of The O.C.
Here’s his latest mix for The Fader, which Hemsworth admits is a bit sad, but I think it’s just on some low-key dope tip. He sprinkles in a few of his own productions in this mix, along with a slew of other top-notch tunes to catch some vibes to. And if you wanna get to know him a bit more, here’s the interview that accompanied the mix. Enjoy!

This one is brought to you by deer antler juice and your homies in the Plymouth Prowler Boys (aka Uncle Jesse for you old heads and devoted white girls). Last year they released their debut, self-titled mixtape and we’ve been patiently waiting for the follow-up. SO HERE IT IS. RIGHT HERE.
This hour-long mix is titled “Pink Lloyd”* and if you’re tired of hearing the same ol’ “EDM” tracks over and over again, this is what you need to get your life back on track. It kicks off on some subtle hype shit with artists like MikeQ and Kuhrye-oo paving the way to the latter part of mix where you will promptly blast off into outer space to the sounds of TNGHT and Munchi. One minute you’re just coolin’ and the next thing you know, The Plymouth Prowler Boys got you wilding like it’s your last night on This Here Planet Earth. It’s like wearing unicorn blood warpaint while laying on a cloud of warm, delicious burritos and whispering sweet nothings into the ears of delicate white women. And if you’ve ever experienced the Plymouth Prowler Boys spin tunes in real life, you know that’s how the story pretty much goes.

Butt-touching music for sure. It’s all really easy now. You’re welcome.
It’s a brand new year but Mondays aren’t getting any less shittier. You’re still gonna wake up tired as hell, hungover from all your football rage, and dreading the fact that there’s an entire work week ahead of you. But luckily Mixtape Monday will hook you up with the right vibes to keep you alive and well throughout the week.

There’s only two Mixtape Mondays left for 2012 but I’m goin’ full steam ahead because Munchi dropped one of the best mixes of the year over the weekend on Diplo’s afterhours show, “Diplo & Friends”, on BBC Radio 1. Better late than never amirite? But got dayum!!!! In the festive spirit of yolo, Munchi goes hard on this one.
You don’t really hear a lot of noise from Munchi’s corner in the form of social networking but that’s because he just camps out in the studio doin what he does best – banger production. The very best representation of the fruits of his labor are right here in this hour long mix for “Diplo & Friends”, in which he includes some of his classic productions to brand new heaters.
If you have a friend who doesn’t know anything about Munchi, this is the mix to show him or her. It totally encapsulates the essence of Munchi, his impeccable skill behind the decks and in the studio, and the truly expansive sources of inspiration from which he pulls to create an engaging set – everything from bachata to moombahton to dubstep.
Treat yourself and go out of your way to listen to this mix! Dada Life kicks it off for the first hour and Munchi takes over for the last hour. It’s up on the BBC Radio 1 site until Saturday until (hopefully) somebody rips it to SoundCloud. Enjoy!
