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, the excellently named DJ Crisps stepped up with an hour of toasted, ever so slightly psychedelic house jams; Londoner Stem delved into the weird, wonderful and often dark world of polyrhythmic club music; Brooklyn selector Boston Chery dropped off some bumpy and melodic soundsystem killers; Belgium's AliA whipped up a blend of UKG bubblers with just an edge of moodiness; Brighton-based Baloo took us on a peak-time journey from garage to grime to jungle; Russia's Creep N00m brought out the finest 140 rumblers in his record bag; Trends whet our appetite for the launch of Lean Streets, the sister label to his Mean Streets outfit, with two hours of grimey goodness; 6 Figure Gang's Yazzus showed us what she's been cooking up in the studio with an hour of her own productions; Australia's Air Max '97 kept the vibe hot and sweaty with a mix of his favourite club experiments from 2020; and, finally, Chicago's Jana Rush put together a thunderstorm of drum sounds, bridging the gap between her hometown's two biggest exports — footwork and drill.

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