Mixtape Monday: Gilles Peterson, The Music Snobs, Crate Invader + More
Fresh off another successful Record Store Day 2017, this week's episode of Mixtape Monday features celebratory sets from Gilles Peterson and Run P. We also have a short stretch of choice hip-hop sets from DJ's Ill Digitz, Halabi and Matman. Instrumental lovers, don't worry, we got you covered as Adam Kvasnica gets us funkin' again, while DJ Breathless drops a heavy dose of Afrobeats for the lunch rush. Jehan represents The Music Snobs with the perfect sounds for your jeeps, coupes, Beemers and your Benzses. Crate Invader and LeFtO help to round things out with deep cuts, a few rarities and a host of very, very, very special new joints.
As with every Monday, the goal this week is pretty simple: really good music. So, enjoy!
Adam Kvasnica - Funkin’ Again
DJ Adam Kvasnica is back in the lab funkin’ once again with a set full of rare grooves and funk and soul gems. The vinyl mix features joints from Os Diagonais, Tammi Terrell, Sister Love, The Headhunters, Odyssey and more. This one is for the diggers and the sample curious.
Gilles Peterson - Record Store Day 2017 Celebration

The three hour broadcast toasts the tenth anniversary of Record Store Day and features Tortoise cuts alongside avant garde sounds from Sun Ra, Osunlade, Alice Coltrane, Yazz Ahmed, Dwight Trible, Davy Kehoe, Abstract Orchestra, Miles Davis and more. A set not to be missed.

DJ Breathless - 10 Minute Thursdays Afrobeats Mix
London’s own DJ Breathless delivers a set full of sick riddims with the eighth installment of his #10MinuteThursdays series. Though criminally short, the set featuring tracks from Tekno, WizKid and Ayo Jay is the perfect party snack for anyone suffering through a serious case of the Mondays. If you suspect you’ll need a midday dance break at any point today, this is the mix for you.
DJ Ill Digitz - The Midnight Snack
DJ Ill Digitz drops the third installment of his Waxx.FM monthly The Midnight Snack with a little help from DJ Getlive and Charlie Smarts (of Kooley High). Broadcasting live from Bushwick, they drop one full hour of heat for the true heads. The set includes tracks from Jonwayne, Joey Bada$$, Roc Marciano, J Scienide, Your Old Droog, Kid Cudi, L-Fudge, Tanya Morgan and more. You can catch The Midnight Snack every second Monday if you dig this.
DJ Halabi - Deckstrumental Vol. 19
DJ Halabi digs a trove of fire production for the nineteenth installment of his Deckstrumental series. The 51-minute set is a clinic in experimental sounds, soulful beats, classic boom-bap inspired production. This go-round Halabi includes tracks from Klaus Layer, Handbook, Kill Emil and Crooked Cat Records. There is some serious gold in the set. Let this one wash over you a few times.
DJ Matman - Droppin’ Science (Spring 2017)
DJ Matman keeps the ball rolling for the culture with a serious hip-hop set for the Spring 2017 edition of The Droppin' Science Show. The episode dedicated to DJ Daredevil features joints from Kendrick Lamar, Nas, Skepta, Kaytranada, Raekwon, Joey Bada$$, Your Old Droog, Oddisee, Phife Dawg, Westside Gunn, Evidence, Ivan Ave, Migos, Will Sessions and more. A lot more.
Run P. - QUENCH Presents: Latter Day Dranks
Run P. drops a stellar all-vinyl party set for Record Store Day 2017, which he celebrated over whiskey and waffles at Latter Day Dranks presented by Crown Heights house party QUENCH.

Crate Invader - Soul Cool Guest List Mix
London’s own Crate Invader takes the reigns for the latest addition to the Guest List Mix series from Soul Cool Records. Digging rare funk 45s and copious amounts of library vinyl, Crate Invader drops an ultra funky set featuring cuts from Soul Vibrations, Bobby Rush, Melvin Bliss and more.
The Music Snobs - In The Mix 012: Sounds From The Front Seat
Jehan takes the wheel for the 12th installment of The Music Snobs’ In The Mix series entitled Sounds From The Front Seat. Serving up a set that falls somewhere between a GTA soundtrack and a quiet storm mix, The Snobs dig joints from Drake, The Police, Lou Phelps, Omar, Nao, Tears For Fears, Jordan Rakei and more. The artwork for this one is also pretty badass.
LeFtO - Show #700
LeFtO drops off Show #700 in his ongoing series of ridiculously good sets from Brussels. His latest features new music from A$AP Ferg, Gabriel Garzon Montano, Faze Miyaki, Champion, Profusion and Stuff. The 35-minute set opens appropriately with “PRIDE.” from Kendrick Lamar’s new DAMN. LP. As is usually the case with a LeFtO set, it only gets more dynamic from there.
