Mixtape Mondays: Moovmnt, Fontenay, DJ Jedi

Fontenay "Summer Love Triangle"

Fontenay "Summer Love Triangle"

We at Okayplayer are strong believers in the importance of education. That’s why this week’s Mixtape Mondays dabbles a bit in geology, geometry, and astronomy courtesy of Moovmnt.com‘s Glimmering Fractions mix, Fontenay‘s Summer Love Triangle, and DJ Jedi‘s mix of original samples used by Digable Planets. That’s right, kids. We had joy, we had fun. We had seasons in the sun. And now back-to-school time is almost here…


Fontenay – Summer Love Triangle:
I’m not sure if my ears just weren’t pointed in the right direction and I’m just late to this revelation, but apparently Onra’s 2010 Long Distance LP has birthed a new movement of producers chopping up 80’s post-disco dance classics.  I came to this realization after listening to Fontenay‘s “Summer Love Triangle” mix which almost acts as a crash course in heavily compressed boogie chops. Going on a trip to the beach?  This mix is as necessary as sunscreen.

Glimmering Fractions: Mix07 Ruby

Moovmnt – Glimmering Fractions Mix 07: Ruby:
The fellas at Moovmnt.com released the 7th mix in their Glimmering Fractions mixtape series.  The latest installation, dubbed “Ruby,” definitely sparkles like one. A classy mix of neo and future soul, hip-hop, and a little bit of house, “Ruby” continues Moovmnt’s tradition of supporting some of the finest underground sounds, new and old.
