August Mixtape - Mixed by DJ Ian Head



Blog favorite Ian Head is back with another monthly mixtape. Like most Ian Head mixes, the vibe is cool-out and the mix is filled with all sorts of random dustiness.  Recommended as you commute to work to allow a little zone-out before the grind, or on your way home to escape from the day's grind.
A short mixtape to chill out to as we cruise toward the end of summer. An almost-exact (but not quite) tracklist can be found on my Instagram here:instagram.com/p/r0mgScNFYQ/?modal=true

Mega Blends - Mixed by Sparkle Motion



Mr. Tobes has expressed on a few occasions via his twitter timeline that he's gunning for that number one spot on the blog's Best Mixes of the Year List.  He along with DJ Yoda (collectively known as Sparkle Motion) have fired a clear warning shot to all potential contenders.  This mix will be particularly enjoyable for those who enjoy their blends extended.  80s hits blended over classic rap beats from the same decade, intermittently sprinkled with a touch of turntablist flair here and there.  Highly Recommended.

Sparkle Motion follow up the hugely successful 'Miracle Blends' mix with the highly anticipated 'Mega Blends', the first ever all out 80s Pop x 80s Rap blend mixtape.
Putting their own unique twist on some of the biggest pop hits of the 80s decade, "Mega Blends" breathes new life into classic Billboard chartbusters by blending them with classic 80s rap instrumentals.
