It was a pretty rowdy weekend, so let’s start this week off with something a little more low-key. West coast producer Jimmy Tamborello aka Dntel is perhaps best known for his work in the duo The Postal Service. His solo work reflects many of the same elements found in the duo’s only album, however with a much larger selection of material, the Dntel solo endeavor carries itself through a much wider range of influences, most often combining elements of downtempo and glitch. Today Dntel released a new mix for FACT Magazine. The mix features a selection of unreleased remixes, serving as a follow-up to his recent new album, Human Voice.
Next we have another one full of great vibes and mellow grooves. This one comes from our Colorado friend Vibe Street, who’s serving up a nice selection of beats for this sunny Autumn afternoon. The “Fall Feels Mix” utilizes plenty of acoustic and organic elements, slowly blending them over an immersive layer of electronic production. It’s the type of mix to put a smile on your face and refuse to let it leave.

From here we’ll bring the energy up bit by bit. Connecticut artist Tsimba brings us the next serving of tunes for the day. This one certainly takes it up a notch, but not too much, sinking its teeth into a whole plethora of funky tunes. There’s plenty of bass for these tunes to ride on, while also still carrying itself through everything from hip-hop to jazz and funk.
This next mix certainly takes it up quite a few more notches from the last few. Mochipet recently released his live set from a show in Beijing, China on his 2014 Asia Tour. The set a wide range of bass music, carrying itself though trap, glitch-hop, and even a few heavy dubstep smashers. Mochipet keeps the mix fresh as always though, turning the speakers inside out with plenty of funky bass and interesting grooves.

Finally, we’ve saved the heaviest for last. Bass heads can unite for this last one, a relentless compilation of everything destructive noise. Montreal’s Kannibalen Records has always been an excellent source of quaking bass, and this week one of the label’s most prominent member’s LektriQue returns with a brand new edition of the Kannibalen Radio mix series. Non-stop crushing noise would be an understatement for this mix. The mix also features a stupendous guest mix section from Lumberjvck.
