    Lightbulb Recommended mixes and playlists

    ok - obviously a difficult thread to start without inviting spam or self-promotion - neither of which will be tolerated.

    the rule is this:

    1) recommend either a mix on youtube, a youtube playlist, a spotify playlist, a soundcloud, mixcloud mix or direct download (you get the idea - other formats tolerated)

    2) must be by a third, unrelated party.

    3) one mix per post.

    4) the more wide-ranging musically the better. new or old music. mix can be strictly hip-hop or strictly rock music - but both would be eligible. as would a genre pile-up.

    5) has to be ABSOLUTELY EXCELLENT. no chaff pls.

    Not going particularly obscure here, but I think Kode9's DJ Kicks fits the criteria. It's everything UK Bass could have but wasn't.

    ILX's Andy Kellman has compiled playlists of 20 R&B songs from the 1970s up to the close of the 90s. This one is 1990. They're all great. He's also done numerous other ILX related playlists.

    co sign the rub mixes, 94 being my fave. Probably all fairly obvious choices if you're a committed 90s rap nerd, but so well put together.

    DJ Q recently posted this 80 minute mix of classic bassline. No tracklist but apparently theres over a 100 tunes!

    Can't find a proper stream, but Four Tet's Fabriclive is a good 'un. Features Red Rack'em- How I Program, an early Deep Tech track.

    nice mix droid. enjoyed that, thanks.

    i would say that it's pretty much *exactly* typical of bukem's mix-style (not remotely uncharacteristic of him) and descriptive of his production style too. i think perhaps you're being a bit wary of the trendy dissensus speed backlash...

    unlike metalheadz in hoxton square (always distinctly meh - went once in the first month, hated it) for a long time speed was incredibly exciting. i went to all the events in those days: paradise garage, awol, voodoo magic and it can only be time tourists who weren't actually around, or guys still at school, who slag speed off.

    i was there on the opening night - there were only five of us - magic times. ok, after by "pulp fiction" it was over - but that took a long time.

    Dont get me wrong, he's an excellent DJ. Long, precise mixes with synced up progressions and little touches on the kills and faders. His style was a big influence on Naphta and by osmosis, myself.

    GLR though, I think is one of the most overrated of the classic labels. Some absolute bangers early on, but the energy petered out very quickly.

    I imagine the physical reality of speed was much more exciting than what its come to symbolise, if only by virtue of the fact that there was nowhere else really dedicated to the deeper end of jungle when it started.

    I have heard some amazing stories from Metalheadz TBF, but it was almost a different era.

    Some reminisces from your junglist days would be welcome if youre ever stuck for blog ideas.

    I'm a fan of mixcloud too. The magic cut n paste tracklist thing is handy (i notice you haven't added them, hint hint).

    Yeah, of course, I do it everyday, but it takes ages. If I wanted to get all of Matt's mixes, it would literally take me all day.

    In 2015, a mix site that doesn't allow downloads is a broken site, no matter how good it looks. Its one of the few good things about soundcloud.

    EDIT - Not that Im not happy to have these mixes available of course... Thanks Matt.
