TRENCH Radio: 12 Of The Best Mixes This Week

SoundCloud (while it still lives) can be an impenetrable, infinite stream of music, often of varying quality. You need a soundtrack to start your weekend right, but you don't have the requisite lifetime to trawl through the week's new DJ mixes. To help you out, we've done the busy work for you. We'll be running this series every single Friday of every single week to bring you the very finest in house, grime, techno, bashment, R&B, trap, D&B and no doubt a bunch of extremely trendy stuff that doesn't have a name yet.

Now that we're back into the swing of things, with hopefully no themed mixes until at least Valentine's Day, let's get down to it. This week saw PlayPlay package basically every last one of your favourite club bangers into a joy-filled hour; DJ Cable thumbed through his staggering collection of hip-hop and grime; CassKidd gave us a lesson in the coolest club bubblers around; Preditah kicked off a monthly mix series with an all-out assault on your sub woofer; and Burt Cope kicked the energy levels up to 1,000 with a hyperactive bassline mix.

This is TRENCH Radio's best mixes of the week.
