    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.

    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.

    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!

    Ive been obsessed with a French guy named Boebis who writes two thousand word blog entries about obscure points in the history of samba music. He has a blog called Bonjour Samba and posts mixes at Sounds and Colours:

    Boebis' Pernambuco Mix by Sounds And Colours on Mixcloud

    Woebot do you mean that the mix itself has to be wide-ranging musically or that the thread can encompass all sorts of genres?

    Because if it's the latter then Mickey Finn's set for Roasts Christmas Party 1994 is a must. Not just one of my favourite mixes, but one of my favourite 'albums' (maybe THE favourite) of all time.
