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 house music, grime, techno, bashment, R&B, trap, D&B, Amapiano, and no doubt a bunch of stuff that doesn’t have a name yet.

First up, Uncle K lit a fire with just over 45 minutes of hotter-than-the-sun Afro jams packed with soulful and jazzy flourishes; Durkle Disco don Koast showcased the latest and greatest in Amapiano and funky with a bonus B2B with K Stylz; Ghost Phone gave us a fresh slab of woozy, dubby, subaqueous edits of Missy, Jeremih, and the like; dubstep pioneer Youngsta dug into his hoard of skankers from J:Kenzo, Calibre, and a couple of his own creations to boot; Tailor Jae got us geared up for this year’s Outlook Festival with an hour of ultra deep, ultra smokey rap, club and dubstep burners; Medley P celebrated his birthday by calling on Benteki, Charisma and J Oh Zee for a massive B2B2B2B2B session with Razor, Mayday, Renz, Squintz and Kabz on bars; Black Artist Database co-founder NIKS pieced together 90-minutes of Manchester-inspired rave magic; 1-800 Girls and Alexis joined forces for a far-reaching two-hour session of light and bouncy house music, garage, breakbeat, broken beat, and even a bit of techno; Foundational jungle DJ/producer Harmony got us up to speed with the iconic past, present and future of his recently refurbished Deep Jungle label; and finally, Chloé Robinson put together a peak-time hour of driving kick drums, shuddering bass, and euphoric bursts from just about every shade of rave imaginable.

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