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, Haçienda legend Graeme Park spun together a fitting tribute to the late great Chicago house icon Kim English; Melbourne's DJ Plead mixed together a truly pan-global selection ranging from jungle and hip-hop to house music and Arabic pop; fellow Australian Strict Face put together a bleeding edge session including Murlo, Carpainter and Scratcha DVA; Discwoman affiliate DJ Haram returned to the Middle Eastern theme, blending that with up-to-the-minute club heat; Glasgow rave duo Optimo showed us how it's done with an eclectic hour of power; and, finally, Bristol's Dead Man's Chest went full jungle on us, the culmination of years of D&B knowledge he soaked up while working as a designer for the likes of Metalheadz and Exit Records.

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