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, Conducta released a temperature-raising mix of garage stompers; Home Team Project's Shivani Day redefined eclecticism with a mix that incorporated a million different shades of rap, trap, drill, R&B, pop, Baile funk, Afrobeats and so much more; Holloway of South London collective Overtone served up a silky smooth blend of garage and broken beat; New York-based selector Mike Servito celebrated the '90s with a nostalgic run of golden rap instrumentals and laid back electronics; Ghanaian DJ and producer Gafacci put plied us with nothing but warm, funk-filled Afro house; Le Chatroom boss Kouslin kept us on our toes with a mix spanning all the way from 100 to 160 BPM; London-based DNDY chopped together 50 minutes of jumpy grime riddims; Gantz got deep and dark with an indefinable cocktail of ominous club sounds; Filter Dread stitched together a tough cocktail of grime, jungle, hardcore and anything else that hits like a freight train; and, finally, Djinn masterfully balanced brutal snares with deep grooves in her D&B mix.

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