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, Berlin's Mani spotlighted just over half an hour of deep, emotive dubstep rumblers; Trends and Boylan served up an hour of speaker-rattling grime and dubstep; Spin City Leeds co-founder Tañ gave us a genre-blending mix of house music, funky, garage, bassline, acid, breaks and more; Lizey whipped up a frenzy with her speaker-bursting dancehall selections; Mr. Uptown himself Sir DJ Corey kept the summer alive with a dub-heavy session of dancehall and bashment; DJ Femo celebrated joining the No Signal family with a bass-heavy cocktail of rap and Afrobeats; gqom originator Griffit Vigo celebrated the release of his recent album I Am Gqom with a showcase of the latest South African heat; DJ Lag, another Durbanite, showed us why he's favoured by everyone from Beyonce to Hyperdub with his thundering gqom mix; the iconic 6 Figure Gang delivered a hurricane of rave intensity, including jungle, hardcore, rap, dancehall, pop, techno and much, much more; and, finally, Local Action's fuckingelle tied together jungle, breaks, footwork and just a touch of electro for a sweat-soaked hour of power.

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