This week: DJ Rahdu starts with a summer neosoul selection, DJ Bonsu comes with some HipLife & Afropop and finally Dave from starfoxxx presents a bunch of stuff he’s into…

DJ Rahdu

Rahdu – from the excellent BamaLoveSoul blog – laments the summer’s end (UK readers: ‘Summer’ was those couple of weeks in April when it didn’t rain) with this mix of wonkysoul, neo-neo-soul and hip hop, which is actually suiting the downpour I’m looking at out the window perfectly.

DJ Bonsu

IGNORE THE FIRST TRACK. IT’S TERRIBLE. (Sorry Becca, if you ever read this. In my opinion and all that. but man.) The rest of the mix though is a great selection of hiplife, afro pop & r&b. Maybe a little too pop in places for some but it’s worth sticking with it through these bits cos there’s some real gems in here – Kwamz & Flava – All Types of Bread is my personal highlight here, I haven’t been able to find this version anywhere online, if anyone can help then shout!! Also worth a mention is Purp’man – Y U Bore which you can grab from Purp’man’s Soundcloud.
