This is a cool concept and the first mix is great:

Not played many mixes in a while, only heard this one last week though it is from tail end of last year.

Absolutely love this Jubilee mix for Mixtape Club:

the second Mixtape Club mix by Martyn Bootyspoon is also great: https://mixtapeclub.net/mixtapes/martyn-bootyspoon-40-love

That Martyn Bootyspoon flipped my wig! Such a wonderful mix, I love his distinctive mixing style, and what a tracklist at that.

Slackk did a Boxed 8 year anniversary mix, a wide variety of styles loosely on the "bass" spectrum. Quite nice.

i don't know why but i'm just really feeling todd edwards right now. he has a nice radio voice and the selection is superb.

This is excellent: https://soundcloud.com/music-from-memory/mfm-mix-024-lauren-hansom Trippy downtempo business from Lauren Hansom.
Reminds me a bit of Roza Terenzi's mix from last year.

Linda and Jodie Rocco (map), Saturday, 29 May 2021 21:09 (eleven months ago) link

all his greasy listening mixes are superb, i've been mainlining them all weekend. no idea why i've slept on him for so long.

i'm not really an italo head but this mix from dj topo disco (donna rouge on here) is beautiful


Linda and Jodie Rocco (map), Thursday, 26 August 2021 20:51 (eight months ago) link

Thanks for that Greasy Listening tip - it's excellent, as if "Rude Movements" was a genre.

it's so nice to hear joey anderson do his thing & play beautiful hypnotic subtle dynamic shaded disorienting dancer's techno

this is so killer

flopson, Thursday, 16 September 2021 05:00 (eight months ago) link

Don't take this an insult but that Joey Anderson mix also makes for good work techno (which is separate and distinct from business techno)

change display name (Jordan), Monday, 20 September 2021 20:18 (seven months ago) link

haha that's cool, i agree. i would kill for an id list on that thing.

It really gets going after the hour mark

I enjoyed DJ Pitch's RA mix as a free-flowing survey of a corner of the UK underground that is very much my sort of thing:

thx map and flopson :)

loving this nippon leagues mix on dream chimney, excited to dig into their other volumes too


donna rouge, Thursday, 30 September 2021 17:03 (seven months ago) link

I know this may be too mainstream for ILX, but the gothy vocal vibes in this Charlotte de Witte mix have really been speaking to me this week

been listening to this Bored Lord mix a lot


scanner darkly, Wednesday, 10 November 2021 23:33 (six months ago) link

DJ Arg is not fucking about with this one, proper jackin filthy acid for those who can dig it, and if you can't, you can't have your money back, because it ain't our problem whatsoever! https://hearthis.at/djarg/dj-arg-vinyl-miixtape-acidinsep2021/

Two hours of Shanti Celeste playing fast but dreamy house, techno and electro.

boxedjoy, Thursday, 11 November 2021 09:59 (six months ago) link


India Jordan at Boiler Room, going from techno and garage to trance, hard house and happy hardcore, charmingly tasteless.

boxedjoy, Thursday, 11 November 2021 09:59 (six months ago) link

I skimmed the last part and was pleasantly surprised to hear Colleen "I'm Kin" in there but I'm going to need to clear a full day for this. I haven't even been on a night out with pre-drinks and afters that lasted this long in two years, so the prospect here is a lot

boxedjoy, Monday, 22 November 2021 20:16 (five months ago) link


three hours of "hardcore dance music" - some weird UK bass, lots of garage and house, an unexpected Girls Aloud moment

boxedjoy, Tuesday, 23 November 2021 12:33 (five months ago) link

Was slightly disappointed on first listen to the Objekt set, but maybe only because of my high expectations. I've been listening to this recent Ben UFO recording a lot, though:

Moritz Serif for Radio Pager

really been enjoying this. strange blends which should not work but they do! https://soundcloud.com/confccrew/dj-jihad-gave-yer-granny-15-tabs-of-orange-sunshine-and-she-approached-prayers-with-a-mind-befogged

mister floppy, Tuesday, 23 November 2021 17:13 (five months ago) link

"dj jihad"

boxedjoy, Tuesday, 23 November 2021 17:39 (five months ago) link

interesting name for sure! can't say I approve, but interesting.

mister floppy, Tuesday, 23 November 2021 18:03 (five months ago) link

almost as interesting as the last person to share a mix from "dj jihad" being their alter-ego who ended up banned from here

boxedjoy, Tuesday, 23 November 2021 18:20 (five months ago) link

I don't know about that. After all, placing the ban hammer in the hands of users can encourage pile-on like behaviour, can it not? Bit like democracy in that regard.

mister floppy, Tuesday, 23 November 2021 20:29 (five months ago) link


the Dekmantel Podcast series has been particularly good this year, I've really enjoyed the Peverelist and Mark Seven entries in the series as well as this

boxedjoy, Wednesday, 24 November 2021 11:04 (five months ago) link

recently been enjoying pâlm’s ‘himno aéreo” internet radio show, each month a different DJ. really dig the nicolas alrod and vitamine mixes


donna rouge, Wednesday, 24 November 2021 20:04 (five months ago) link

Seconding Dekmantel, I really enjoyed the 100 bpm TSVI mix among others.

These two sets via Keep Hush were really inspiring to me (Aya b2b Acre and BFTT b2b Clemency):



change display name (Jordan), Wednesday, 24 November 2021 20:16 (five months ago) link

Midland in top form on this one, episode 400 of the Honey Soundsystem Honeypot podcast.


recovering internet addict/shitposter (viborg), Wednesday, 24 November 2021 23:47 (five months ago) link

Jordan that TSVI mix is great too.

There’s a new RA mix from Fort Romeau that I would say is worth noting, it’s somewhere along the same lines as the Midland mix, but I’d guess anyone here interested in that is already aware of it.

recovering internet addict/shitposter (viborg), Wednesday, 24 November 2021 23:49 (five months ago) link

really enjoying this while working

Loving this Fraxinus mix:

change display name (Jordan), Friday, 10 December 2021 22:46 (five months ago) link


The night before the club's final morning, longtime resident boxofbox took the decks one last time; delivering a six hour set that stretched well into the morning hours, going a full two hours past the city’s legal closing time, and playing record after record to deliver their final love letter to the sweat-packed floor of revelers that called the club home. Thought to be lost to time -- a new trove of DAT tapes containing the complete soundboard recording of that legendary night were recently unearthed from a box found deep within a storage closet in the long dilapidated and recently shuttered subway station record shop MTA TRAX which operated on the Northeast side of Times Square - 42nd St. station for the better part of the last forty odd years. boxofbox’s DATs contain a tracklist that is simply stacked with some of the greatest dance hits from the era, where radio-candied pop hits meshed with sultry rnb and the emergent sound of new jack swing, as well as some early signals of the rave era to come as it was taking shape.

basically a six hour mix of crossover dance music from the late 80s/early 90s, perfect if you've been enjoying the TOTP repeats from 1990 and 1991 on BBC4 lately

boxedjoy, Thursday, 16 December 2021 23:29 (five months ago) link

Loving this mix, thanks boxedjoy.
