Topomonti Mix 07

I love when sometimes people send me their mixes and they turn out to be exactly what I wanted to listen to at that moment. Topomonti sent this with a note saying it is cosmic disco and island house and I might like it. Right you are Topomonti, right you are!

Q-Tip - The Needle Drop

This is a very slick video, have been meaning to post it here for so long. Q-Tip at a sesh, fucking around with a single record, playing and looping Bobby Rush's 'Chicken Head' while his mates hang out - including Kanye West who is actually smiling and saying things like 'In all my life I ain't never seen anyone do that' - check it out if you haven't seen it before. He is so great!

Check out his Fireside Chat interview I posted previously if you missed it, it's excellent. Could listen to him talk for hours.

Deadly Free DLs - Vol 3 : Disco and Hip Hop

SO it seems like Soundcloud are pissing a lot of people off by removing their tunes and mixes and not having deals in place to support deejays properly. Going to be interesting to see where the tide moves the tunes. But for the time being there are still loads of amazing tracks on there, here is another collection of great edits and remixes all with free DL. Threw in a bunch of hip hop ones this time too. Go support the artists and deejays and check out the rest of their stuff!

Check out Vol 1 and Vol 2 if you missed them.

Another Far Away Guest Mix: Pat Mahoney

One of my current favourite musical crushes is Museum Of Love*. You can check out some of their stuff here if you haven't already. Here is a mix their head dreamboat Pat Mahoney made for the first episode of Far Away Radio with Cooper Saver. Lots of tribal beats heading into some more housey stuff, including one of my faves, that 'Love, Love, Love' tune by Those Guys. LOVE.

I've posted a couple of other Pat Mahoney mixes before, check 'em out here and here.

Far Away Records is an LA based label - I've posted another one of their guest mixes by Swooner favourite and Cosmic Kid, Daniel T, check that out here.

*I sent Museum Of Love a Valentine's card because I love them so much. They sent me a postcard that plays music in return!! They are the best band ever!

Magzire: Space Voyager To The Unknown Mix

This is a 3 hour, slick, cosmic, bangin' beat escapade from someone called Magzire. It's excellent. Anyone who liked the exclusive swooner mix by Juan C I posted recently, or the Palmbomen stuff may like this. Starts off slow and driving and then gets really interesting, lots of beats - gets deliciously warm and banging from midway. It's really the kind of sound I am digging at the moment. Not even sure how I got onto his soundcloud page the other day but can't wait to check out more. Some serious tunes in there.
