September 2018 Mixtape
It’s officially the first day of Autumn and to celebrate we’ve compiled this little playlist of autumnal tracks. It’s packed with soul, hip hop and just a touch of dark electro to get you ready for the colder weather to come.
The mix starts off with a track from two men that have been leading the hip hop scene in the UK: Tom Misch and Loyle Carner. The single is called “Water Baby” and it’s off of Tom Misch’s new album Geography. We continue the British hip hop vibes with two tracks from Manchester rapper, Black Josh and then we slowly ease you into some chilled out beats curtesy of Stan Forebee.
The playlist starts to get a little heavier when we mix bit of electro beats in from Maise, Hoodboi and Rich the Kid. It still has a hip hop vibe to it, but with an electro twist. If all of that is too hardcore for you however, don’t worry, the mixtape lightens up with a Tensnake remix of Cut Copy’s track “Standing in the Middle of the Field.” There’s also a new one from a band called Das Body which is fantastic. If you like Arcade Fire, you’ll like Das Body. Definitely check them out.
The mix finishes with a few tracks that belong on the experimental end of the spectrum (in a good way). Including a fantastic thirteen minute track by an Ethiopian artist called Mikael Seifu. It’s like nothing you’ve heard before.
BONUS TRACK! There’s one last track at the end from American Antifolk legend, Lach. If you haven’t heard of Lach before then you should check out a few of his tracks on Soundcloud. We were also able to sit down and chat with him about, folk music, New York, the future of the music business, and transcendent enlightenment. Check out the interview here.
