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.

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:

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.

the latter.

not about genre pile-ups within mixes but stuff from all over the shop - but if they're good - bring 'em on.

My favourite ...mix? Was what Screw was doing, can that be called that? But my favourite is this anyway, 27th June, it's just amazing. Relentless, endless, eternal.
