TRENCH Radio: 10 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.

First up, Manchester-based South African DJ SNO (pictured) paid tribute to the late hero of Afrobeat Tony Allen with a gloriously uplifting 90-minute vinyl-only session; Berlin-based producer sUb_modU celebrated another icon, Fela Kuti, with a blend of gems from the Fela & The Afrika '70 era peppered with a few of his own covers; Australia's Marley Sherman eased us into the long weekend with a hazy mix of downtempo and dub-inspired beats; Nick Bam whipped up nearly two hours of golden hip-hop, R&B and soul for the infamous No Signal team; Jamz Supernova bolstered her party-starting reputation with a rock solid mix of peak-time house, UK funky, bass music and breaks; Durkle Disco residents Koast, NGAIO and K Stylz linked up remotely to showcase the softer side of UK funky; DJ Voices showed us just how wild and adventurous the New York club scene can be; Sinistarr concocted a life-giving mix of D&B, jungle, footwork, Afrobeats, UK funky and more; Brighton selector Energy spotlighted his Overview label with a dynamic and expansive drum & bass mix; and, finally, Nastia added some teeth-crunching, drum-heavy madness to our lives.

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