Mixtape Mondays: New Mixtapes From No(w)FUTUR, James Blake, Frankie Knuckles Tributes + More
If it’s Monday it must be Mixtapes time. Today we have the newest installment (number 7, that is, 007 ) of our Okayplayer-exclusive No(W)FUTUR series curated by Mr. Mass and Simsima, straight outta the slums of Alphaville. DJ Jamad turns in a 2-part mix giving us a taste for the Art Of Cool Festival in NC. You also get a Boiler Room set from J Rocc, and BBC radio set from James Blake and tributes to the dearly departed house pioneer Frankie Knuckle coming in from Mister Cee, Grown Kids Radio and Evil Dee. Gorillaz’ Damon Albarn drops a FACT mix, QBert goes scratch picklous, Tensnake make you dance and DJ Lexis turns in a refreshing Spring mix (no greens) for Music Is My Sanctuary. Not only does this mix of mixes set the mood for Spring, there’s enough music to last you until actual, factual Spring weather arrives. So don’t just sit there: Click through and get Spring started already.
