There's a few mixes and mix-tapes floating about as well:

Ivan, who has been filling in for a vacationing Rizoh, has been doing his thing this week over @ TRU. They have a slick "TRU Summer Soundtrack 2007" up (see this pic for the tracklisting), featuring a load of Hip-Hop tasties for these warm months. Peep the mirrors for dload: zShare : sendspace : Megaupload.


For you Justice fans, they have a BBC Radio 1 "Essential Mix" about. I got the scoop from Mike KIR and his fantabulous blog. Peep it for tracklisting, links (via Discobelle) and all other kinds of funky shit.


Speaking of Discobelle, they posted a special mix that DJ Ayers and Tittsworth did exclusive for their blog.


Did you need some DNB? Over at the DPD, today's "For Your Listening Pleasure" features a Santa sack full of top notch mixes from DJs like Jem One, FRISKe, Paul Reset, Subsonik, Accident & Emergency, Danny Intrikut vs. Just Jeryl and the one like Fanu. Something for everyone in that one, go gobble up the goodies.


For those of the dubstep persuasion, Forensics has mixed his final "months" mix, this one being for July 2007. 40 minutes of dubby heaven:

1 Code Tripper – Deserted Cities
2 Code Tripper – Holdback
3 Code Tripper – ydE
4 Ekaros – Thru your dreams
5 Ekaros – Eden
6 Ekaros – Above the mountains
7 Nine Inch Nails – The hand that feeds (Dreadless remix)
8 The Sub Division - Apocalypto
9 The Sub Division – Just Can't Fight
10 Forensics – Vanishing Point (remaster)
11 Two Oh One – Ghost Train (Wet Wednesday mix)
12 Rogue State – Bounce Step
13 Rogue State – Sawing Eagle
14 Rogue State – Back then
15 The Bug ft. Flowdan – Jah War
outro: Cutty Ranks, from Hand Grenade



I even have a few bits of misc. shit, like an interview with El-P, for no good reason. Or Stretch Armstrong reminiscing on Redman and Biz Markie freestyling WAY BACK. Or news bits (whattup, Idolator?) about a record label that is trying to release music for FREE, and use the power of ad revenue as its driving force. Just Blaze also wanted to let us know why Saigon's LP is delayed... oh and RIP Stack Bundles.


For this week's final thought, I want to take it back a smidge, and throw out some of my favorite Prince videos, due to dude hooking back up with Wendy & Lisa for his forthcoming Columbia Records album... or I was going to, but the po' man's video store, YouTube, is hatin' on a playa... regroup...

Been in a Bill Laswell mood, peep this video from one of his many groups, PRAXIS. This video is entitled "Animal Behavior".

You Like It Like That.

Boymerang "Soul Beat Runna"

Until next time, space travelers, keep it locked.
