Mixtape Mondays: D'Angelo x BLS, Boogie Man, Midnight Rockers Express + Sea Level
This week's edition of Mixtape Mondays is all over the place in typical OKP-fashion. Nice Rec kicks things off with some good ol' fashioned funk in the 4th edition of his Boogieman mix series. Midnight Rockers Express drops us a tape that (somehow) takes us from Kanye West to Skream. The hard-rive reducers over at BamaLoveSoul deliver with their much-anticipated Follow Me mix of D'Angelo Flips, Remixes & Tributes. Last but not least, DJ Tap. 10 has collected some of the smoothest tracks in the land to please your ears. Click through and explore all of the music the internet has to offer.

Nobody puts together the unofficial 'rarities' collections of our favorite Okayplayers than DJ Rahdu and his fellow hard drive reducers at Bama Love Soul. If you're familiar with the 'flips, remixes and tributes' mixtapes they've already put together for the likes of Erykah Badu--and you know the amount of D'Angelo covers and remixes they stay posting on their blog--then you know that a D'Angelo edition is both long-overdue and an event worth marking your calendar for. We did, and in reward for our patience we got the full-length Follow Me mix today. Stream or download below and scroll down for the tracklisting.
