Mixtape Mondays: Dam-Funk, DJ Food, Mark Force

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Forget all of the intros this week.  We've got some great mixes for you, and the more time you spend reading, the less time you can spend listening to the ten mixes on deck this week.   Dam-Funk unearths some rarities from the boogie wonderland. Mark Force of the Bugz In The Attic collective showcases some of the best West London boogie of recent years. DJ Food serve up a massive eight-part tribute to the music of Kraftwerk.

Mark Force "Mark Force April Mix"

It's been a minute since a really good broken beat mix crossed our paths.  When we saw this mix from Mark Force of Bugz In The Attic, we knew before even hitting play that it was pure gold.  The mix features tracks from Shokazulu, dego, Mark de Clive-Lowe, TMLR, Matt Lord & Kaidi Tatham, and more!

Dam-Funk "The Healing"

Dam-Funk's contribution to XLR8R's podcast series is another collection of obscure early 80's funk and electro jams.  The kind of thing we've come to expect from Dam.  He's also keen to let us know that the mix was created using only the original wax pressings - no Serato, no mp3s, no CDs.
