There’s something I always liked about electronic DJs spinning hip-hop. A different take on a genre we know so well from people like Lunice or DJ Oneman is always refreshing, with hip-hop cuts mixed in seamlessly with the best electronic music. What I didn’t expect is one of these great mixes to come from the always excellent Four Tet. I don’t really know what I can say about this mix, other than that if you are at least a semi-frequent reader of this site, chances are this mix was basically tailor made for you. It ran on the Diplo & Friends show on BBC Radio 1 a few days ago, featuring instrumental and vocal cuts from the likes of Kanye, Dilla, Clams Casino, Actress, Floating Points, Jai Paul, Kamikazee, and Juelz Santana. So, what are you waiting for?
