Mixtape Mondays: DJ Spintelect, Erykah Badu, Prince, Cut Chemist + More!

Baduist Mix

This week's Mixtape Mondays picks are so good they will have you falling to the ground like BizKicking things off DJ Spintelect brings some good vibes to your ears with a genre-jumping Middle Of The Week compilation. Question blends together a mix of classic Erykah Badu and DJ UMB collects heartfelt moments from Prince's discography. DJ Rahdu continues on the soulful tip with The Diamond Soul XXXperienceCut Chemist and DK take a left turn with some post-punk, Ta-Ku Kit Pop link up as HWLS, and Delroy Edwards adds some syrup to the mix with slowed down funk.

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

DJ Spintelect is up next with a mix that's middle of the week but never middle of the road. Changing lanes wildly, in fact, from Omarion to Sango to Heavy D.
