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, Subtle resident Aloona put together a melodic and genuinely beautiful liquid D&B set informed by her lifelong love of jazz and soul classics; Bristol's Khanum delved into the lowest possible frequencies with a fresh mix of spacious steppers; dubstep legend Caspa took us hurtling down memory lane with some golden wobblers; IZCO kept the energy levels sky high with some morale-boosting garage scorchers; Alexander Nut warmed us up for We Out Here Festival with a mix that slipped seamlessly between funk and soul, classic house music, acid techno, footwork, hip-hop, jungle and even a bit of drill; Cay Caleb served up an hour of dusty beats, G-funk slides and dreamy loops in his latest session; the mysterious founder of Bristol label Ghost Phone served up a smooth yet weighty selection that occupies a space, in their words, "where sexy meets weird"; DJ Shannon stepped up with a heart-racing blend of house music and club sounds from across the globe; LCY and Yazzus gave us non-stop, hands-in-the-air, breaks-heavy euphoria (including a glorious rave remix of the Round The Twist theme tune); and, finally, Spooky and Slimzee went back-to-back with two and a half hours of ultra heavy grime riddims.

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