Mixtape Mondays: Teleseen, De La Soul, Notorious Exchange + More
This week’s edition of Mixtape Mondays is full of enough gems and jewels that you’ll think it’s Valentine’s Day all over again–if your Valentine’s Day was an international getaway that included stop overs in Angola, Brazil and all bouts. Our bloggers-in-arms over at Okayafrica kick things off with the premiere of a new mix from Teleseen–the very first artist to be released on Feel Up records, the new brand imprint from Jillionaire 0f Major Lazer fame (not to mention LargeUp fame) The stakes is high that you’ll enjoy Gibril Kuyateh‘s tribute to De La Soul‘s 25th Anniversary. DJ Junior of Record Breakin’ shares some jazzy vinyl cuts while Nzungunzungu shows us a world where r&b meets Angolan beats. Traveler takes us the rest away around the world around the world and the homie DJ Synapse makes sure we have the necessary assortment of stunner shades for such a holiday with his “Stunner of The Month.” DJ Rahdu not only shares the latest of his Diamond Soul XXXperience broadcasts but also puts us up on DJ Needles‘ brilliant concept mix The Notorious Exchange (yes, that’s Foreign Exchange jams moshed up with B.I.G. in the spirit of Needles’ Tribe Called Kast mix). After Chairman Mao delights us with a collection of classic reggae covers, DJ LeFtO takes it all home with not one but two installments of his show, blending deep house, hip hop, and everything in between.
