Mixtape Mondays: New Mixtapes from Onra, Bonobo, Mad Decent, DJ GetLive!, Hot Sugar + More

Mixtapes: sounds of instanbul 2

"I used to sell Mixtapes, but now I'm a blogger...!" Just my nerdy way of announcing that today is Mixtape Mondays once again, which means it's time run down the best mixes currently available on the internet to get your streaming-audio workweek flow into high gear. This week we got mixes from ONRA, Bonobo, DJ GetLive!, Hot Sugar, LeftO and the official Mad Decent Block Party mixtape in BitTorrent form. We alsot got BBC's Annie Mac getting rave-y, LV getting wavy and even Gantz dropping some Turkish delights. By now you cleared out your inbox and got that second cup of coffee (or Red Bull, as the case may be) so it's time to click play and get serious. Let's go...

Onra French Rap Mixtape

This Onra mix of rap en francaise came to us via regular Mixtape Mondays contributor-of-jams DJ Lexis of the Music Is My Sanctuary crew and it does not disappoint, serving as yet another example that the francophone world is in many ways the homeland of a certain purist, connoisseur's approach to the art of rap to rival New York. Formidable. Stream below and scroll down to get an education on French rap of the golden era we call the 90s via the tracklisting, from Afro Jazz to X-Men.

Mixtapes: DJ GetLive! 'Untitled'

DJ GetLive! should be familiar to Mixtape Monday readers via his virtuoso mixes of tough musical love for the Midnight Rockers Express podcast series. This week we get his solo selection, which leans heavier on the electrosoul and modern r&b, though still with a progressive, Okayplayer-ish flip on the formula, whether it's a Sango dubbing out Robin Thicke or a timely remix of Outkast's "Spottieottiedopalicious." Stream below:
