Mixtape Monday: Mateo Senolia Live In NOLA, A Los Rakas Party, The Many Phases Of Yesterday's New Quintet + More
Top of the week to you, Okayplayers. I know, it's Monday and there's little the world has to offer in terms of conciliation. But never fear, good people. The first day of the week is also reserved for providing it with a score, which we have gone through extensive research to bring to you on this deceptively cold NYC morning. This week's round-up features a double shot of exclusive mixes for your minds; a live set of deep house and funk from the mighty Mateo Senolia, a bachata refix party mix from the Los Rakas crew, a little history lesson from Stones Throw on the many phases and moods of Madlib's avant-soul&jazz personas Yesterday's New Quintet and a little love from the new-age funkateer Kindness. So without further ado, let the ear feed begin.
This week we're getting you started with the premiere of Mateo Senolia's soulful sounds from a recent live set in NOLA, where he strutted seven shades of house and funk on a two-hour mix sure to put the heat to your feet.
Premiere number 2 belongs to the Panamanian funk mob known as Los Rakas, who celebrate 1 year since the release of their debut record and their forthcoming Coachella bid with a svelte, but funky 22-minute mix of bachata and merengue refixes.
The legendary Stones Throw crew drop a 10-track compilation, charting the many moods, phases and shades of Madlib's Yesterday's New Quintet exploits.
Kindness hits us with a dynamic set of contemporary hip-hop, Chicago house, funk and so much more in his return to Beats In Space.
