Mixtape Mondays: New Mixtapes inc. Official Boondocks Mix, Mister Cee x NaS, Matthew Law, LeFtO + More
After a weekend of holidays (4/20, Easter and Record Store Day all on the SAME WEEKEND?? Just throw in the Mayan Apocalypse why don’tcha…) you’re going to need the perfect soundtrack to get over the back-t0-life workweek blues. We have just the prescription and it ain’t all cowbell. Today’s Mixtape Mondays includes the fourth edition of The Official Boondocks Mixtape, DJ Mister Cee proving why Nas-Nas-NaS is the king of disco with his Illmatic tribute, West Philly’s own DJ PHSH brings the funk as MATTHEW LAW, and South Africa via Scandinavian innovator Spöek Mathombo dropping a mixtape of Swedish rap (!) Balancing out the international equation, French/Mexican selector Déni Swain runs through a mix of vintage Ghanaian funk (for the Germany-based Analog Africa label, naturally), new mixes from Tycho and LeFtO, and a handful of 80’s New Wave mixes. Put your new vinyl, chocolate bunnies and bong aside (for best results, wrap separately) because it’s time to stream your way through Mixtape Mondays.
