Mixtape Monday is back again, all set to turn the clock forward on your weekly sonic schedule. In a particularly excellent roundup we’ve got the exclusive online premiere of J Period‘s recent J Dilla Minimix, which played on Los Angeles’s Soundwaves Radio recently in celebration of #DillaMonth. Great things continue to come in small packages with Prince Paul’s latest It’s Not the Size of Your Mix… installment, a brief but brilliant set that includes joints from Alkaholiks, Boogiemonsters and many more. Beyond that, an all-African(ish) groove mixtape from King Mono is thick with Fela vibes, plus sets from Cosmo Baker, HWLS, BamaLoveSoul and a throwback disco ride circa 1976. You tired from that lost hour of sleep? Too bad. It’s monday morning and these mixtapes ain’t hearing no excuses.
