Mixtape Monday: DJ L'Oqenz x Basquiat Premiere, MF Doom Origins, Soulection x BBC + More!
Welcome friends to the other side of yesterday. It’s a new week, and with that comes another Mixtape Monday. We’ve prepped an excellent batch of tapes this week, one that bends the usual conventions of our approach–but it’s all in the name of good music. Things get started with the Okayplayer premiere of a live mix from NiteOwlNaps dedicated to the legendary artist Jean-Michel Basquiat. From there things keep visual for a moment thanks to Parisians Now Futur and their dazzling video mixtape of MF Doom beats reconstructed from their O.G. sources and set to vintage films. A little farther back awaits Soulection‘s takeover set on Diplo‘s BBC broadcast, vintage master O. Wang, a little J. Rocc, a little LeFtO, and a lot of 90s beats. Get set to get down; the mixtapes begin now.
