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, L.A-based Tay Hdsn warmed us through with just over an hour of smouldering R&B slow jams; Oakeve put together a calming, healing mix of hip-hop with splashes of R&B, Afrobeats, jazz and anything else to nourish the soul; DJ P Montana caught us up in the latest Afrobeats, Afroswing, R&B, rap and drill; Italian dubstep collective Numa Crew showcased their sound at its dubbiest; East London's Tailor Jae recorded a relentless two-hour live mix of house, garage, bassline and a bit of jungle; FYI Chris celebrated the recent release of their debut album Earth Scum with an unpredictable mix of house, techno, jazz and much more; Rotterdam duo Black Cadmium connected the dots between London and Detroit techno with a punishing hour of power; Chilean selector Young Nast spun together jungle brilliance from Goldie, Remarc, Philip D Kick and more; Basic Rhythm took us from slightly dubby, experimental club music through to hardcore and jungle; and, finally, new gen junglist No Nation reminded us how incredible the scene is today with 60 exhilarating minutes of breaks-heavy madness.

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