MIXTAPE MONDAYS! with Faws’ mix for The 405, Young Magic’s bits and pieces mix, BBU’s bell hooks, Earnest Endeavor’s mix for Sonic Router and the strangest of strange from Rose Quartz and Police Academy 6!

The 405 Plastic Platform C09: Faws

The elusive Irish producer, Faws made serious waves in 2011 with his EP Antonym, and started 2012 off right by dropping a sick little mixtape for UK outfit The 405. This mix gives some insight into the young artist’s influences, which were unclear besides the obvious Mount Kimbie and Burial similarities. Love that he has Portishead and Dr Dre in there. Makes so much sense. STREAM HERE.

Young Magic  - Maps C A S S E T T E

My favorite act of 2011 and 12, with what is sure to be a top 10 album of the year, Young Magic released “The Maps Mix last week, which is a collection of Young Magic rarities, remixes, demos, field recordings, flips, beats, b-sides from Melt and whatever else they made over the last year that didn’t fit the LP. It’s a home for all the other sounds we’ve been making…a rough beat tape of sketches cut together in a moment. Think of it as our sonic scrapbook.”

bell hooks BBU Mixtape

There’s no denying Mishka has proven to be one of the illest lifestyle outlets in the game. Everything they produce is just top notch. This BBU mixtape is their latest effort showing the music world just how on top of their game they are. I am trying to evolve and stop hating on new rap, and this BBU mixtape is the start of that for me. There is a big Southside Chicago feel to this mixtape, which I dig, and the more I listened the more this sounded reminded me of old school jamze from RJD2 and even Too Short, and at other times it felt like 1978 when funk and soul were beginning to blend into what would soon be called “rap music”. Overall there is this throwback vibe that BBU is able to transport into 2012 unleashing a refreshing update while paying tribute his hip hop roots. Oh and did I mention it’s fucking funny? Rap should always be like this.
