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, New York-based Yaeji delivered an expansive, progressive and emotive mix of ahead-of-their-time club tracks; the gloriously named Martyn Bootyspoon celebrated the recent release of his 2 B Real / Local Action release Lickety Split with an hour of hot and sweaty bangers; Bandulu Records co-founder Hi5Ghost put out a deep and dark blend of bass-focused sounds; Hungary's Sirmo put together a blend of tough UK funky laced with grime and bassline; Bristol DJ and producer WISA dropped off a grime mix of elastic basslines, pitch black atmospherics and late night crud; 6 Figure Gang's Dobby wove together grimey basslines, warped rap, soulful house and mutilated pop for an hour of genreless joy; South London's Severin Glance pulled together everything from Britney Spears to Abra Cadabra for a session of wild club edits and bootlegs; Seclusiasis and Slit Jockey co-founder Starkey drew on everything from Lemon D to Steve Reich and Trim to Meek Mill for his latest grime-inspired set; East London selector Tailor Jae ran the full gamut of the UK underground, from hardcore to grime to jungle and far beyond; and, finally, Mancunian hero Jonny Dub told 2020 where it can shove it with a jaw-crunching hour of hardcore, jungle and classic rave.

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