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, Johannesburg selector Fif_Laaa (aka Refilwe Matabane, pictured) spun together her favourite jazz and soul-flecked rap bubblers, from Anderson .Paak to A Tribe Called Quest; Lewisham's Meroman fused trap, rap and garage for his energising new mix; we got an hour of grimey, wave-focused jams from Gl00my; Bronx-born club-filler Kush Jones spun together a bubbling mix of 160 rhythms; Preditah schooled us on the classics from T2, Subzero, Burga Boy, TRC, Nastee Boi and more; DJ EZ also took us on a trip down memory lane with this 2001 mix of golden age garage; and, finally, J:Kenzo mined the under-appreciated intersection between dubstep and acid.

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