“This was originally created to replicate the feeling ‘we used to feel’ growing up as kids making our own mixtapes from songs that played on the radio. You would never get the full song from beginning to end, you would sometimes get some radio interference, commercials, etc. So of course you will hear some skips, pops, abrupt cuts and radio noise. That’s what made it beautiful.” – Erick

LISTEN: KING KRULE FOR RINSE FM

Just over 2 years ago, Archy Marshall (DJ JD Sports, Edgar The Beatmaker, King Krule) stopped in at Rinse FM and curated a 2 hour slot for The Big Brunch – Archy cites all of this eclectic music as playing an important role in his life, and having a huge impact on his own unique sound.

In my opinion, this mix is perhaps the most enriching and diverse collection of sounds you will find anywhere on the internet.

You’re welcome.

LISTEN: BBC RADIO 1

Flying Lotus:

Kaytranada:

Two of my favourites are back at it with the fire for BBC Radio 1’s Thursday night residencies. In this recent run, Flying Lotus takes us through an insane mix including Thom Yorke, Bjork, Aphex Twin, and Portishead, and even has a special guest on the air – fellow LA producer Gaslamp Killer.

Montreal’s Kaytranada serves up some greatness – Shalamar, Kali Uchis, Mac Demarco, The Isley Brothers, and Knxwledge.

Listen to the full shows here.

Last week Les Sins (AKA Toro Y Moi) released his debut album Michael – The whole thing is a masterpiece of mashed up dance, electro, funk, disco, lounge, and chill wave. As you’ve probably already gathered, Chaz Bundick doesn’t know how to make bad music; This particular project sounds like summertime, rooftops, raves, ice creams, and happiness.

Buy the album if you love yourself!
